    Places off-limits while carrying


    Effective October 1, 2006, Florida State Parks and National Forests in Florida are no longer off limits to concealed carry by permit holders. Effective July 1, 2006, permit holders will be able to carry concealed in Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs).

    790.06 (12) License to Carry Concealed Weapon or Firearm

    Any place of nuisance as defined in s. 823.05
    any police, sheriff, or highway patrol station;
    any detention facility, prison, or jail;
    any courthouse; any courtroom, except that nothing in this section would preclude a judge from carrying a concealed weapon or determining who will carry a concealed weapon in his or her courtroom;
    any polling place;
    any meeting of the governing body of a county, public school district, municipality, or special district;
    any meeting of the Legislature or a committee thereof;
    any school, college, or professional athletic event not related to firearms;
    any school administration building;
    any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose;
    any elementary or secondary school facility;
    any area vocational-technical center;
    any college or university facility unless the licensee is a registered student, employee, or faculty member of such college or university and the weapon is a stun gun or nonlethal electric weapon or device designed solely for defensive purposes and the weapon does not fire a dart or projectile;
    inside the passenger terminal and sterile area of any airport, provided that no person shall be prohibited from carrying any legal firearm into the terminal, which firearm is encased for shipment for purposes of checking such firearm as baggage to be lawfully transported on any aircraft; or
    any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by federal law
    Florida Statute 823.05 defines a place of nuisance as a "place which tends to annoy the community or injure the health of the community...or any house or place of prostitution, assignation, lewdness or place or building where games of chance are engaged in violation of law or any place where any law of the state is violated."

    I was trying to find out more information if a rest stop along the turnpike if the land or buildings is off limits. I would figure it would be because it is state land and a state building.

      Florida State land and buildings are not off-limits.

        From what I understand, only if the building is a government building, is it off limits. But rest areas are not off limits even if owned by the state.

          Hay "the fed" I replied to your pm but its still in my outbox. I don't know if you ever got it. But the answer to your question is, yes that's the club. Why? Are you also a member?

            So,
            What about dog tracks, jai-lai and card rooms?

            They are posted, but?

              They are posted
              If it ain't listed in the State or Federal laws, let them go ahead a post all they want. They can ask you to leave if somehow your concealed carry is revealed inadvertantly. However, If Jai Lai or the dogtrack are considered professional athletic sports venues or events, and I do not know whether they are or not but I would err on the side that they are so considerd, it will be a problem if you are revealled. I personally would not carry at Jai Lai or a dogtrack, because you never know. Seems like another of those famous Florida gray areas that the legislature needs to address. Keep in mind that this is a question better suited for your attorney, not a gun forum.

                I would say the "racketball" IS a sports event and the dog track is not.

                  Re: Places off-limits while carrying

                  Any legal document always confuse the heck out of me.

                  I have a question about this part:

                  any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose;
                  Is it ok to conceal carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol? It sounded like one cannot carry in the portion of that establishment that is DEDICATED to serving alcohol (a bar).

                    From "Florida Firearms Law, Use & Ownership" 6th edition by Jon H. Gutmacher, Esq:

                    ". . . if you go into a restaurant, you can't go in the bar, you can't even walk through the bar -- but you can sit at a dinner table . . . order drinks with your meal or just order drinks."

                    Again, I suggest that ever person in Florida who carries either borrow this book to read or buy yourself a copy to read. It is full of invaluable information on firearms and carry in Florida.

                      Found the book on Amazon:

                      Only $3.58 for a used one. I'll buy it.

                        Be careful with that "deal". The one listed there on Amazon is the 4th edition, and the latest version is the 6th edition. So the 4th edition might be OK for some of the information, but a lot of it might be out-of-date.
                        Plans? Why make plans when you can do things haphazardly?

                          I found the 6th edition on the author's website for $36.95. On Amazon it was $51

                            and that is the "letter" of the law, however I love the places that you have to walk through the place that serves the drinks (bar) to get to the bathroom, when you gotta go, you gotta go... guess you don't want to linger.

                              You would think that they would carve out an exception because we don't have control over the floorplans of a restaurant.
