    Conceal carry in public mall

    As a conceal permit holder, are you allowed to conceal in a public mall? I know you can't if the mall doesn't allow weapons. I attempted to search the statues and the forums and came up with nothing. Many thanks.

    Perfectly legal, even if the mall has a 'no weapons' policy. They can, however, ask you to leave if they discover you carrying and refusing to do so would be considered trespassing.

    Personally, I wouldn't go to a mall without a gun.

    The mall doesn't bother me. The parking lot is a different story.

    It is the main reason I carry a knife all the time. I have a G23 but a G27 may have to be my summer carry since my 2 357 carry is likely going to be an inconvenience.

    No problem -- also, concealed means concealed. Who will know?

    As a FL Concealed Weapons/Firearms License holder, the one statute you absolutely need to be familiar with is §790.06 Florida Statutes in particular, and the rest of §790, which deals with weapons and firearms in general. In §790.06, paragraph (12) lists the places you cannot carry even with your CWFL.

    No license issued pursuant to this section shall authorize any person to carry a concealed weapon or firearm into any place of nuisance as defined in s. 823.05; any police, sheriff, or highway patrol station; any detention facility, prison, or jail; any courthouse; any courtroom, except that nothing in this section would preclude a judge from carrying a concealed weapon or determining who will carry a concealed weapon in his or her courtroom; any polling place; any meeting of the governing body of a county, public school district, municipality, or special district; any meeting of the Legislature or a committee thereof; any school, college, or professional athletic event not related to firearms; any school administration building; any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose; any elementary or secondary school facility; any career center; any college or university facility unless the licensee is a registered student, employee, or faculty member of such college or university and the weapon is a stun gun or nonlethal electric weapon or device designed solely for defensive purposes and the weapon does not fire a dart or projectile; inside the passenger terminal and sterile area of any airport, provided that no person shall be prohibited from carrying any legal firearm into the terminal, which firearm is encased for shipment for purposes of checking such firearm as baggage to be lawfully transported on any aircraft; or any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by federal law. Any person who willfully violates any provision of this subsection commits a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
    Malls are not listed, therefore not forbidden BY LAW to carry. However, private property owners are free to ask you to leave for any reason whatsoever, therefore the signs are meaningless. After having been asked, should you refuse to leave, you could be charged with armed trespass.

    I agree - I wouldn't go to a Mall without a gun. In fact, if legal, I wouldn't go anywhere without one.
