    Florida National Cemetery is a no go for CC.

    Went to Dade Battlefield Historic State Park to watch a reenactment with some family and was going to stop by the National Cemetery in Bushnell since its close to the park but weapons on the property is a no go. Big sign out front said "For your safety no weapons or firearms allowed on property."

    Gun on National Cemetery property = $500.00 fine.

    Dog/other animal, unauthorized but no penalty found.

    You'd be correct if the property was under state control/jurisdiction.
    "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson.

    "Better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer" - English jurist William Blackstone.
    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare
