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.

Reasons an Application for a Concealed Weapons Permit May Be Denied

There are various reasons that your application for a concealed gun permit might be denied by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

These reasons include:

  • You are the subject of a restraining order or protection order, and are therefore prohibited from carrying a firearm;
  • You have a history of mental instability;
  • You have been convicted of a felony;
  • A warrant for your arrest has been issued; or
  • You have been convicted of a specific crime, such as assault.

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.
