    Retired USAF

    Hello, new member here. Have been coming to FL a week or two per year for several years, now here as a resident since retiring from the USAF 1.5 years ago. I came to this forum because I have a question regarding carrying in a food establishment that has a bar. The law is vague regarding the definition of "portion" of an establishment. If I can't find an answer via a forum search I'll post the question in the Carry Issues topic area. Glad I found this forum, I'll be a participant.

    Welcome aboard from Cape Coral... If you haven't already, may I suggest a copy of 'Florida Firearms Law, Use & Ownership' by Jon Gutmacher. It's pretty much the definitive treatise on firearms law here in Florida. BeerHunter will probably pop up with some links to the statutes. Even with all this, it's a vague part of the law.

    Welcome to FCC, dwindhorst!

    In case you weren't aware, you can stay current on pertinent Florida Statutes regarding use of force and firearms law by going right to the source using these links for Chapter 776 - Justifiable Use of Force and Chapter 790 - Weapons and Firearms. I'd also like to suggest you obtain your own copy of FLORIDA FIREARMS Law, Use & Ownership by Jon Gutmacher!

    Finally, I would like to recommend you consider joining Florida Carry and join the effort to protect the rights of Floridians to keep and bear arms!

    Again, welcome to FCC!
