Just curious if anyone is carrying without a permit. Since a state of emergency has been declared is anyone going to carry in the mandatory evac areas? Just curious.
Wow, Florida sure sounds one heck of lot better on this (laws on emergency evacs) than say Louisiana during Katrina. IIRC, during Katrina, Louisiana tried to say you couldn't have any guns during evac or during the state of emergency and they even tried to confiscate guns from some of the people.

Tis legal.As far as carrying without a permit...you aren't going to find anyone here on this forum that knows the laws that will tell you to do that since it's illegal.
Good luck. Some of the worst days of my life were after we evacuated for Opal. They put up a road block to prevent people from coming back until the power lines were secured and roads were cleared. We sat at a road block for six hours wondering if our house had survived. It did. Two sections of my privacy fence blew over, but that was it. We had friends who lost there homes to the storm surge.We have evacuated, under a mandatory order. I have my permit and have for 10 years. I have my AR, my AR pistol and 500 rounds. I also have a .45, a 9mm and a 380. We're good. Hope our house will be. Be safe my fellow Floridians.
FS 790.01 Unlicensed carrying of concealed weapons or concealed firearms.—
(3) This section does not apply to:
(a) A person who carries a concealed weapon, or a person who may lawfully possess a firearm and who carries a concealed firearm, on or about his or her person while in the act of evacuating during a mandatory evacuation order issued during a state of emergency declared by the Governor pursuant to chapter 252 or declared by a local authority pursuant to chapter 870. As used in this subsection, the term “in the act of evacuating” means the immediate and urgent movement of a person away from the evacuation zone within 48 hours after a mandatory evacuation is ordered. The 48 hours may be extended by an order issued by the Governor.
And exactly why I am getting an AZ permit. My SC one covers a lot of states. CWOUSCG and I have been traveling all over the place and it's too important to me to even try to push the law, not going to do it. My Mom has her SC permit so she is good to go in NC where we have family however I believe she will be fine in Myrtle Beach - usually it goes inland and they get flooding anyway. Her neighbors are not going, they are all within half mile to the ocean but the ground it high there.This whole question of taking your firearms with you during an evacuation is yet another reason to get your permit. That way if you cross into another State like Georgia, AL or SC you are covered. It's a PITA to go through all of the application process but once you have it you are covered.
Lawful per FS 790.025 (3) LAWFUL USES.—The provisions of ss. 790.053 [Open carry prohibition] and 790.06 [Concealed Carry permit requirement]do not apply in the following instances, and, despite such sections, it is lawful for the following persons to own, possess, and lawfully use firearms and other weapons, ammunition, and supplies for lawful purposes:I'm new to all this so bear with me. I see you can carry while evacuating but how about if you are staying put. I don't have my permit yet as it still in the process stage. I know we will lose power. That's when all the stuff starts happening. Can I carry within my property?
