Florida Concealed Carry Permit
Gun Rights Lawyer Providing Effective Representation For 47+ Years
Florida does not require a permit or license to buy a gun, nor are you required to register the gun(s). However, you do need a license to carry a concealed weapon. When purchasing a gun, there are still criteria to ensure that no minors, no non-citizens of the United States, and nobody with certain criminal convictions on their record are permitted to obtain a weapon.
When you are applying for a Florida concealed carry 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 weapon permit and been denied, a Miami gun rights lawyer at Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A. can help you understand why and appeal the decision.

Why Was My Concealed Carry 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 or protection order or injunction
- You have a history of mental instability, been committed to a mental institution, or adjudged incompetent or mentally defective.
- You have been convicted of a specific crime
- You have been convicted of a felony (unless civil and firearm rights have been restored by the convicting authority)
- A warrant for your arrest has been issued
- You are prohibited from possessing a firearm by any other law, state or federal
Your Options When Your Application for a Florida Concealed Carry 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 case, 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 carry 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.
