Orlando Firearms Lawyer

In light of highly-publicized shooting incidents, state and federal authorities are allocating an increasing number of resources to address gun crime. Florida gun laws are seeing major changes, which can affect law-abiding gun owners who may not be aware of the new legislation. Law enforcement agencies throughout central Florida have greater authority to remove guns from a home if they suspect that use it to commit a crime. It is now more important than ever to preserve your Second Amendment rights.

If you are a suspect in an offense involving the use of a firearm, the Orlando firearms lawyers with The Umansky Law Firm remain up-to-date on ever-evolving firearm legislation in Florida. We have the experience and dedication you seek to defend the charges against you. We eagerly strive to protect gun rights in an age of increased scrutiny of gun ownership and will do whatever it takes to preserve your rights at this challenging time.

Gun Ownership Restrictions in Florida

State and federal laws govern who may own and use a gun in Florida. Some citizens are barred from owning firearms and other weapons because they fail to meet the criteria. Convicted felons are just one group of people who cannot own or possess firearms within a specified time frame after their conviction. Others who are prohibited from owning firearms include:

  • Fugitives from justice
  • Those who are addicted to controlled substances
  • Those who have been involuntarily committed to a mental health institution
  • Those who have been dishonorably discharged from the U.S. Armed Forces
  • Illegal immigrants
  • Those who have renounced their U.S. citizenship
  • Those who have an active protective order against them
  • Those who have been convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence offense

Additionally, you must be 21 or older to purchase a firearm in Florida.
