Firearms questions answered

By The Staff

I frequently get questions about the legal carrying and possession of firearms, especially handguns. I would like to address some of these questions.

Do I need to register my rifle or handgun? No, Florida, like most states, does not register firearms.

May I carry a firearm on my person? If you?re at your home or place of business, you may carry any legal weapon, concealed or openly. Once you go outside your home or place of business, such as in common areas of an apartment or condominium complex, you?d be well-advised to obtain a Florida Concealed Weapons License to make sure you don?t run into trouble with the law.

Is pepper spray or tear gas considered a weapon in Florida? Florida law allows citizens to carry self-defense chemical weapons of two ounces or less. They may be carried openly or concealed, and no license is needed.
