Re: Local Laws
Here in the Free State of Florida, you want to buy a gun, you go to the store and buy a gun. No permission needed to buy one or to own one. None of that "one gun a month" crap. You want to buy a gun today and another one tomorrow? Go for it. Want to buy fifteen guns today? You got the money, then have at it.
As to carrying it in your car - it depends.
A loaded firearm can be carried in your vehicle for self defense, as long as it is "securely encased". The law defines "securely encased" as in the glove box or console (whether or not it is locked), or snapped in a holster, or in a box with a lid (and they have decided that a zippered gun case/pistol rug meets the definition of "box with a lid". There is nothing in the law that says the lid must be closed or the zipper must be zipped. Before I got my carry permit, I had my pistol in a cigar box on the seat beside me.
That's for a "loaded firearm". Unloaded gun? Throw it in the car. On the seat, on the floor, in the glove box, in a case or not in a case. For some dumb reason they decided that you can't drive around with a rifle/shotgun in your pickup's gun rack, unless you are going hunting/fishing/camping/target shooting. But otherwise you're golden.
Oh, and sitting on it would probably get you popped for "carrying concealed". Maybe.
