Miami Gun Permit Attorneys

Providing Effective Representation for 45+ Years

The process of getting a gun permit, or gun license, in the state of Florida requires filing an application and meeting certain criteria. The purpose of the application is to ensure that no minors, no non-citizens of the United States, and no people with certain criminal convictions on their record are permitted to obtain a weapons permit, and, therefore, a gun.

When you are applying for a concealed weapons permit, which allows you to carry a weapon on your person, it is possible that your application will be denied if you have any marks on your criminal record, or fail to meet other criteria for carrying a concealed weapon.

If you have applied for a concealed weapons permit and been denied, our Miami gun permit attorneys will help you understand why, and appeal the decision.

Contact us for your free consultation! We are available 24/7.

Why Was my Concealed Weapons Permit Denied?

There are various reasons your application might be denied by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, including:

  • You are the subject of a restraining/protection order
  • A history of mental instability
  • Convicted of a specific crime or a felony conviction
  • A warrant for your arrest has been issued

Your Options When Your Application for a Concealed Weapons Permit Is Denied

The first thing that you need to do if your application for a concealed weapons permit is denied is to determine the precise reason for the denial. Then, depending upon the cause, you may either seek to have your record expunged, or appeal the decision.

As a note, when the state of Florida denies a request for a concealed weapons permit, it is required to inform the applicant of the denial and of the reason in writing. The state must also inform the applicant of any right to a hearing, as found in Florida Statutes 790.06.

Requesting a Hearing

When your application for a concealed weapons permit is denied, you have the right to request a hearing on the matter. It is important that you request your hearing within the amount of time specified in the letter you receive from the state of Florida, or else you will forfeit your right to a hearing.

Working with an Experienced Gun Permit Attorney in Miami

Applying for a concealed weapons permit is a very serious thing to do, and should be approached with the help of a legal professional especially if you have been convicted of a crime in the past.

In the event that your application for a concealed weapons permit is denied, you should work with an experienced Miami criminal defense attorney, such as those found at the law offices of Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A. We can help you to understand the reason for the denial, request a hearing, or seek expungement of a criminal record if need be.
