Welcome to OCDO.
In Florida, the exceptions to 790.053 (which bans open carry) are contained in 790.25. General open carry is prohibited, even with a permission slip, also called a Concealed Weapon or Firearm License. Such a license enables you to carry concealed almost everywhere except those victim disarmament zones outlined in 790.12. 790.25 does allow those with state issued costumes to openly carry a firearm wherever they go. If you wear a state issued costume, you can be trusted. http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/bro...,7945972.story
