Your Second Amendment rights provide each individual the right to bear arms to provide for common self-defense. The question is, are there limitations? The Supreme Court, while granting the right to bear arms to individuals, still provides restrictions so the United States does not turn into the Wild West. Florida follows the Supreme Court’s ruling allowing individuals to bear arms and places restrictions on its citizens to ensure the safety of its citizens. It is required to have a concealed carry permit or you can be arrested for carrying a concealed firearm. However, concealed carry permits are not necessary for every situation.
Florida has certain requirements to obtain a concealed carry license. Those requirements include:
- Being at least 21 years old (unless in the armed forces).
