Ok. Fl. has a provision that allows for a firearm to be in your vehicle. It must be in the glove compartment, center console or rearward most luggage compartment. The law does not state or imply that it should be locker or not, loaded or not or even in a holster. The statute clearly says " not on or under the front seat. This information is available at the Fl. Dept. of Agriculture.

For starters, you guys could get rid of the drive through liquor stores. No, not the ones where you can buy a 6-pack of beer cans to take home, I'm talking about the ones where they give you a margarita on ice in a styrofoam cup, with a plastic lid, and nothing more than a piece of tape of the straw hole so its not considered an "open container"

haha!!

I live us south fl n sometime pass thur some bad areas that being said I dont think I would open carry people dont know how to act when 'gun' is the topic. Up it does happen when sittin down a at a restaurant or getting out of your car it may show so in that situation it would help us

ALL gun control laws are un-constitutional, "shall not be infringed" was wording put in place to make that clear. Good luck challenging any of the laws on constitution grounds, since nobody in the gov give a rats azz whats in the constitution, especially the supreme court.

Nope nope .... it can be under your seat as long as its in a holster and its concealed , it can be in any zippered bag or box no lock required. glove box center console . technically on a seat with a towel over it in a holster. As long as it is concealed and it out of sight. Although I wouldn't test the towel on the seat method.

Also that 3 steps before it can be fired myth is also just a myth. It can be locked cocked and ready to go

Ghost,
I was under the impression that FL laws like AZ are meant to be interpretted loosely, I was actually a little surprissed by the question.

FL and AZ are still the wild west. But I'm rusty on the laws as I don't carry much anymore anyway.

Sorry, when I said readily available I ment unholstered just grab and go. And yea that three step rule is totally bogus but it scares the pants off people. Im ccw'er so I have mine no matter what unless stated in the "places not to go" on the department of agriculture. People like to try to make their own rules and regulations here for some reason, I guess because things are stated so loosely in the rules for non concealed carriers.
