    I would not want to be the test case for trying open carry in my own front yard in Florida. We have to get this fixed.

    STAND UP!
    I open carry my Judge when I mow my yard.Have had cops drive by while doing so.However,I live on 5 acres and am WAY more than 1500 yards from any building(exept my house).I do so for my pets and kid.I've seen and killed MANY snakes that could have hurt one of them.

    Ah, year old necro thread! Zombies!

    I've now read the court decisions on this issue. OC in your front yard at home is fine. I would however not step on to the sidewalk.

    Knife OC is generally legal in FL unless there is a local ordinance. There is no preemption for knives, yet...

    Thanks!Thats what i thought but I'm yet to open carry the Ka-bar.It has great value to me and I don't want to risk it.But from what I've read on local laws its hard to get a grip on it.I mean from what I've read you can carry a broad sword on your back.Not that I'd do something as stupid,just sayin....I live in Citrus county just out side citiy limits.And have had the cops called many times for me just target practice shooting.The cops make sure I have the amount of land I say I do and that I'm more then 1500 yards from any building.then they are on their way.But thanks much for the info.Sorry to be a pest.

    If there is next time, find out what Ordinance they are quoting. A search of Citris County Ordinances does not show any 1500 yard limitation for the discharge of firearms on private property.

    Sec. 21-26. - Specific noise prohibitions.


    Sec. 21-28. - Exemptions.

    The following uses and activities shall be exempt from the noise level regulations of this article:
    [snip]

    (10) Licensed game hunting activities or other similar firearm activities, to included practice, on property where such activities are authorized during lawful hunting hours.

    [snip]



    IANAL; These are snips from Muni-Code.

    Thumbs up

    I OC while cutting my grass, as soon as I go to cut the grass on the other side of the sidewalk I throw my shirt over my gun. As soon as I'm done, I go back to OC. Neighbor wants to talk? I cover it up and walk over to his lawn.

    Maybe because it's illegal? Open carry is unlawful in Florida. That means everyone, everywhere, not just "Public property" Now there are some exceptions to this, like carrying at your home or place of business. There is no exception for someone to carry openly on property nottheir home or wherethey work. Even with permission of the person that owns that property.*

    Technically, you cannot even openly carry on property you own that is not your home.*







    * Unless that is covered by one of the other exception in 790.25(3)
    Your comment first says it brandishing is not a thing in Florida, it is and it is a felony. Brandishing a weapon in the state of Florida could cost you more years in prison than shooting someone. pistol whipping someone is even worse. I dont know where you read these laws but someone with a concealed weapons permit will know this. In short if you draw your weapon in the state of Florida you better shoot. Whether you're on private property or you are in your car or your in public property

    Welcome to OCDO.

    Generally, we do not encourage posting to a necro thread - this one is over 6 years old.

    Also, it is incumbent on you to cite a source when making a point of law - see Forum Rules.

    To assist you, please note that "brandishing" is illegal in Florida but not a felony.

    "790.10 Improper exhibition of dangerous weapons or firearms.—If any person having or carrying any dirk, sword, sword cane, firearm, electric weapon or device, or other weapon shall, in the presence of one or more persons, exhibit the same in a rude, careless, angry, or threatening manner, not in necessary self-defense, the person so offending shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083."

    http://www.floridafirearmslaw.com/or...or-weapon.html

    http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/...s/0790.10.html


    In addition:

    "790.053 Open carrying of weapons.—(1) Except as otherwise provided by law and in subsection (2), it is unlawful for any person to openly carry on or about his or her person any firearm or electric weapon or device. It is not a violation of this section for a person licensed to carry a concealed firearm as provided in s. 790.06(1), and who is lawfully carrying a firearm in a concealed manner, to briefly and openly display the firearm to the ordinary sight of another person, unless the firearm is intentionally displayed in an angry or threatening manner, not in necessary self-defense.

    first, welcome to the forum...

    second, when you make such definitive statements regarding judicial punishments, it is expected the poster will cite applicable statues to eliminate the emotionalism about what was incorrectly learned from your best buddy.

    third, timeliness at times is a valid consideration at times but perhaps somewhere over the last five, plus, years the original poster or perhaps FL's statutes have changed since the topic was originally raised?

    finally, let me reiterate welcome to the forum...we look forward to your further contributions.

    This being an open carry forum, it would be good to point out that OC is legal in Florida in certain circumstances.

    See section 3H pertaining to fishing, hunting, and camping.
