    Would this be legal in Forida?

    With all the recent BS going on in the country, I am wondering if storing a rifle in my truck in a roof mounted rack would be legal. Any advice or opinions. Thanks!

    Welcome to OCDO.

    "Vehicle carry without a license when the weapon is not immediately accessible/available for use is permitted.

    • Handguns must be either "securely encased" -F.S.S.790.25(3)(l) Some cite this as a grey area or risky- or not immediately available for use.[18] "Securely encased" means in a glove compartment, whether or not locked; snapped in a holster; in a gun case, whether or not locked; in a zippered gun case; or in a closed box or container which requires a lid or cover to be opened for access.[19] Carry of a Handgun on one's person inside a vehicle without a license is not permitted (except in the case of open carry in accordance with the law outlined above). Once a handgun is securely encased, it can be stored anywhere inside the vehicle and is not limited to just the glove compartment/center console.
    • Long Guns a legal firearm other than a handgun may be anywhere in a private conveyance when such firearm is being carried for a lawful use.[20]"

    Probably more accurate than the OCDO state page...
