Understanding Florida's Concealed Weapon Laws
Florida law regulates the carrying of concealed firearms and other weapons to ensure public safety. It is important to be aware of the specific provisions and requirements to avoid any violations that may result in criminal charges.
In Florida, a permit is required to carry a concealed weapon lawfully. The process to obtain a concealed weapon permit involves meeting specific eligibility criteria, completing the necessary paperwork, and undergoing a background check. Our skilled attorneys can guide you through the permit application process and ensure compliance with all legal requirements.
Concealed Weapon Offenses
If you are found carrying a concealed weapon without a valid permit, it can lead to criminal charges. Florida law identifies carrying a concealed weapon without a permit as a third-degree felony, punishable by imprisonment and fines. Additionally, the following factors can aggravate the charges:
- Possession of a concealed weapon during the commission of another offense
- Carrying a concealed weapon into restricted areas such as schools or government buildings
