In Florida you must hold a permit in order to carry a gun. If you do not have a permit and you are found with a gun that is not in plain view, you will be charged with a violation of Florida Statute 790.01 Carrying a concealed firearm in violation of the statute is a third degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in the Florida Department of Corrections. It is also possible that the law enforcement agency that arrests you may try to confiscate the weapon.
It is also unlawful in Florida to carry a concealed weapon (such as a knife) or electric weapon (such as a stun gun) without a permit. If you are found with concealed knife or stun gun on or about your person it is a first degree misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in the county jail.
