    Emergency Trip to Florida. OC Advice

    I have to make an emergency trip to Florida to see some family with health issues. I do not have a permission slip and prefer to not make the trip unarmed. I know NC law, I believe SC you can not carry open, Georgia is OC friendly but not sure on FL. I tried scrolling through each states page, but honestly just to short on time to do any research. Any help is appreciated.Thank you.

    Open carry in GA is not legal without a "carry permit". If you had a cc, then you could OC in GA since GA recognizes our cc permit. I may be wrong but that is what I have read and did a little research.

    FL is generally no OC. There are exceptions for while you are on a fishing trip, and things like that, but in general, there is no OC in FL.
