Concealed Firearm Defense
Carrying a concealed weapon without a permit is illegal in Florida. However, the laws regarding what is and is not considered “concealed” are complex, and police officers often get it wrong.
A gun is “concealed” if it is hidden on your person, or is concealed from sight but in a place that is readily accessible to you — such as under the driver’s seat of your car. However, if it is in a glove compartment, trunk or other area that is beyond your immediate reach, it is not “concealed” under the eyes of the law.
Unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon is a felony offense. If convicted you may be sentenced to up to five years in prison, $5,000 in fines and five years of probation.
At the Kaylor Law Group, we thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest and the placement of the weapon. If the gun was not within your immediate control or was not “concealed,” you cannot be charged with illegal possession. We also examine police action. If police lacked probable cause to stop and search you, we will fight to have your charges dismissed.
