In Florida, weapons crimes are among the most fiercely prosecuted of all criminal offenses.
Under Florida criminal statues, a concealed weapon can be almost any weapon that the state can classify as a “deadly weapon.” For example, a knife may or may not be considered a deadly weapon. The facts and circumstances of the knife are determining factors. A firearm is any weapon which can or may be readily converted to expel an explosive projectile. This essentially includes all guns, rifles, shotguns, and possibly even starter pistols and flare guns.
In Florida, a concealed firearm is any gun carried on a person in such a manner as to conceal the gun from the sight of another person.
Penalties For Weapons Charges in Florida
The 10/20/Life provisions of Section 775.087 mandates minimum terms prison for many offenses committed while in possession of a firearm. If convicted, defendants receive ten (10) years for mere possession of a firearm during the crime, twenty (20) years for discharge, and a life sentence for killing or inflicting injury with a firearm during the crime.
