Florida’s Gun Laws

If you’re going to carry a gun, make sure you understand the ins and outs of the gun laws in your state. Failure to do so may result in arrest. Here is a quick overview of the gun laws in the state of Florida:





Florida is what is is called a “shall issue” state; this means that a license is required to carry a concealed handgun, but that the gun owner only has to meet basic criteria (they don’t have to demonstrate good cause) to be ensured a license. An out of state license is valid in Florida as long as that state reciprocates validity for Florida licenses. The state of Florida receives the title of “accommodating” in regards to gun owners; there are only 56 laws pertaining to guns.

Localities in Florida are not allowed to further regulate guns, except in regards to zoning laws that restrict where guns can be sold. A concealed gun can be worn at any of the places except those including but not limited to: police station, prison/jail/detention center, courthouse/courtroom, polling place, school district, athletic event, airport, Savannah’s Preserve State Park, etc.
