Florida Statute § 790.01 makes it illegal for anyone to carry a concealed weapon without a license. Carrying a concealed weapon which is anything less than a firearm is punishable as a misdemeanor, while carrying a concealed firearm without a license is punishable as a felony.

Florida also has a 10-20-Life statute, also commonly referred to as the “use a gun and you’re done” statute embodied in Florida Statute § 775.082, which is used as a sentencing enhancement for defendants who commit crimes with firearms. Statute § 775.082 was written with the specific legislative intent to prosecute defendants who use guns to the fullest extent of the law. 


First offence with firearm = 10 year minimum sentence

Second offence with firearm = 20 year minimum sentence

Third offence with firearm = Life sentence
