Weapon and Firearm Laws in St. Petersburg
Article I, Section 8 of the Florida Constitution states that "the right of the people to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves and of the lawful authority of the state shall not be infringed, except that the manner of bearing arms may be regulated by law." Our state legislature has gone on to enact dozens of laws regulating the purchase, sale, possession, use and display of weapons and firearms, as contained in Chapter 790 of the Florida Statutes. If you have been charged with any type of weapons violation, you are at risk of severe criminal penalties, and must take action now to defend yourself against a negative outcome.
