A friend of mine lives in Tallahassee, in a rougher area. After a few recent break ins in her apartment building she decided she wanted to get a firearm to keep for home defense. She has experience with firearms, and firearm safety, I know this because I have been shooting with her before. When she went to look at used firearms at pawn shops, she was told, at 4 different places, that women could not buy guns in Florida. Thinking logically, I told her there is no way that this is law, or legal. I am no legal expert, especially on the laws of a state other than the one I live in, but this seems like a no brainer to me. My friend is a resident of Florida, not just a student who lives there part time. What is the real deal here?
