Florida has specific laws pertaining to how individuals may carry weapons. In Florida, as in other states throughout the country, it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon without a valid permit. If you fail to comply with the rules and restrictions, it is considered a crime for which you can be arrested.
At Aaron Delgado & Associates, our Florida gun rights attorneys advise and represent clients in a wide range of matters related to gun rights. These include:
With an extensive record of results in criminal defense cases and more than 100 years of combined legal experience, our trial lawyers are vigorous and knowledgeable advocates on behalf of our clients' rights. We have offices in Daytona Beach and DeLand.
Just because a person legally buys a pistol, shotgun, semi-automatic, rifle or other firearm, he or she does not have the automatic right to carry that weapon. Many legal rules and responsibilities come with being a firearm owner. Carrying a knife or another concealed weapon that is not a gun is a misdemeanor offense. Carrying a concealed firearm without a Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP) is a felony crime and can result in up to five years of prison time. Individuals who are at least 18 years old and traveling in private vehicles can transport guns without a permit; however, the firearm must be "securely encased." Because definitions such as "securely encased" can be disputable, and because weapons violations are serious charges, do not wait to consult an experienced lawyer.
