Default Florida Concealed Carry and open carry laws and statutes

For those of you that may want to teach yourself some things about being able to carry anything from a knife to a firearm here is the link to the Florida Statutes related to the topic.

http://www.flsenate.gov/Laws/Statutes/2013/Chapter790

If this is viewed in later years:
http://www.flsenate.gov/Laws/Statutes
Go to chapter 790

In relation to being able to carry a knife:
F.S. 790.001
(13) “Weapon” means any dirk, knife, metallic knuckles, slungshot, billie, tear gas gun, chemical weapon or device, or other deadly weapon except a firearm or a common pocketknife, plastic knife, or blunt-bladed table knife.

The complete analysis of the Florida Supreme Court on this issue was as follows: "In 1951, the Attorney General of Florida opined that a pocketknife with a blade of four inches in length or less was a `common pocketknife.'

Note that while assisted opening folders fall under common pocket knife, automatic knives or switchblades do not. You must have a Concealed Carry License to carry an automatic knife.

I'd recommend getting a copy of Florida Firearms by Jon Gutmacher. On pages 105 and 106, he discusses the Florida laws relevant to this issue in detail.
http://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/...florida-3.html

Concealed carry for veterans or active duty:
790.062 Members and veterans of United States Armed Forces; exceptions from licensure provisions.—

(1) Notwithstanding s. 790.06(2)(b), the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services shall issue a license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm under s. 790.06 if the applicant is otherwise qualified and:
(a) Is a servicemember, as defined in s. 250.01; or
(b) Is a veteran of the United States Armed Forces who was discharged under honorable conditions.
(2) The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services shall accept fingerprints of an applicant under this section administered by any law enforcement agency, military provost, or other military unit charged with law enforcement duties or as otherwise provided for in s. 790.06(5)(c).
History.—s. 1, ch. 2012-108.

Knowing how the law reads and is defined is an important thing.
