Florida Permitless Carry Starts July 1st, Just In Time For Independence Day


In a few weeks, Florida residents will have the right to carry a concealed firearm without the requirement of a permit to do so.

This is made possible through House Bill 543, colloquially referred to as Permitless Carry, which is set to come into force on July 1, 2023.

The police department in Fort Myers is making sure that residents understand that specific areas like schools, colleges, universities, bars, courthouses and more will continue to be off-limits for firearms.

They underscores that this new legislation does not affect who is eligible to buy a firearm or the mandatory waiting period associated with firearm purchase.

For purchases made through licensed sellers, the necessary documentation needs to be filled out for the purchaser, with their information then shared with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

The buyer’s details will subsequently be verified by both the National Crime Information Center and the Florida Crime Information Center.

The purchase and delivery of the firearm will still be separated by a three-day waiting period.
