Some states place limitations on firearm possession and sales. These are the restriction on firearms in Florida:
The waiting period is 3 days for all handgun sales by a dealer. The waiting period is used to run background checks and to serve as a "cooling off" period. At gun shows there is no requirement of background checks if they are sold by "private" individuals or gun "collectors". However counties may impose a waiting period of 5 days, and require buyers at gun show to go through a background check.
No, there is no restriction on carrying concealed handguns.
No, there is no requirement to purchase or own a firearm.
No, there is no ban or limitation on assault weapons. Federal law does prevent the sale of some assault weapons, but this federal law will expire in 2004 unless Congress renews it.
