The Florida Concealed Weapons Permit

The Florida Concealed Weapons Permit

Florida Concealed Weapons Permit 

The State of Florida and the Florida Legislature is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms. And for the purposes of Concealed Weapons Permits, Florida is classified as a “SHALL ISSUE” state. This means, as long as the applicant meets the statutory requirements, the applicant will be issued a Concealed Weapons Permit.

The criteria for obtaining a Concealed Weapons Permit is laid out in Florida State Statute, 790.06. The requirements are in part, as follows: The applicant must be a resident and citizen of the United States; 21 year of age or older; does not suffer from a physical infirmity preventing the safe handling of a firearm; no felony crime convictions; has not been committed for the abuse of controlled substances or found guilty of a drug related crime; does not chronically/habitually use alcoholic beverages or other substances to the extent that their normal faculties are impaired; desires a legal means to carry a concealed weapon or firearm for lawful self-defense; demonstrates competence with a firearm; has not being adjudicated an incapacitated person; has not been committed to a mental institution; has not had an adjudication of guilt withheld for any felony or misdemeanor crime of domestic violence; has not been issued an injunction that is currently in force and effect for the restraint of domestic violence; and is not prohibited from purchasing or possessing a firearm by any other provision of Florida or Federal law.

Now, admittedly that is a lot of information, and when reading the statute in its entirety, it appears to be even more, but in the grand scheme of things, the majority of the state population can fully meet the requirements and criteria specified in the statute.

One of the first things that an applicant must do is complete a firearms safety course, demonstrating the safe handling and discharge of a firearm.

The Second Amendment and the Florida Concealed Weapons Permit are rights, with conditions, that the majority of citizens of Florida can exercise. However, the only way to exercise that right is to apply and comply with the requirements specified in Florida State Statute, and most importantly to obtain the appropriate training demonstrating you are a responsible citizen and gun owner. Although not required by Florida Statute, it is highly recommended to continue your firearms education beyond the basics required to obtain your Florida Concealed Weapons Permit.
