Florida Becomes the 26th State to Adopt Constitutional Carry

We are thrilled to announce that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has signed a new bill into law, making Florida the 26th state to adopt Constitutional Carry.

This bill eliminates the requirement for individuals to obtain a concealed firearm permit, allowing eligible citizens aged 21 and up to carry without asking the government for a permit or paying a fee.
The legislation will officially go into effect on July 1, 2023.

This is a significant victory for gun owners and Second Amendment supporters, as it affirms the fundamental right to self-defense. The National Rifle Association (NRA) applauds Florida for adopting this vital legislation. We at Ammunition Depot share in their enthusiasm.

This historical moment is a testament to the dedication of gun owners and Second Amendment supporters working together in the state. We extend our gratitude to the Florida legislature and all those who have worked tirelessly to make this a reality in the Sunshine State.

Additionally, we are confident that this victory will inspire us to continue advocating for Constitutional Carry laws nationwide, ensuring the protection of Second Amendment rights for all Americans.

While critics argue that allowing more guns on the streets with less oversight is not a solution, supporters of the bill have called it a public safety measure.

The bill would still require background checks and a minimum wait period to purchase a gun. Still, a more detailed Florida Department of Law Enforcement background check would be optional.

The legislation also expands Florida's Guardian program, allowing armed personnel on private school campuses.

We believe this new right will bring a sense of security to our Florida customers, who will no longer have to go through the hoops of getting a permit from the government to carry their weapon.

We thank Gov. DeSantis for his support of self-defense and Second Amendment laws and for prioritizing the safety and security of Florida residents. Constitutional Carry is in the books, and we look forward to serving our customers under this new law.

At Ammunition Depot, we believe that your constitutional rights are a fundamental right that should be protected. We remain committed to providing our customers with the best quality ammunition, firearms, and firearm accessories, and we look forward to serving them under this new law.

From all of us at Ammunition Depot, we thank you for your continued support!

Stay safe, and we look forward to serving all our Florida customers under this new law.

What is Constitutional Carry?

Constitutional Carry refers to the legal right of individuals to carry a firearm in public without the need for a permit or license, as protected by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

Under Constitutional Carry laws, individuals who are legally allowed to possess a firearm may carry it openly or concealed in public without requiring a permit or license.

Additionally, it allows for individuals to exercise their right to bear arms without the requirement of any additional permits or licenses from the government.

Constitutional Carry is also known as “permit-less carry”, unrestricted carry, or Vermont carry, as the state of Vermont has had Constitutional Carry since its inception in 1791 and does not require any permits or licenses to carry firearms in public.

Currently, Constitutional Carry is allowed in several states in the United States, such as:

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, FLORDIA, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
**Please Note, some specifics of the law CAN vary from state to state.

Permitless carry vs. Constitutional Carry

Permitless carry and Constitutional Carry are often used interchangeably, but they do have some differences. 

Permitless carry refers to the ability to carry a firearm in public without a permit or license, but it does not necessarily rely on the protection of the Second Amendment.

Permitless carry laws are usually enacted through state legislation, which can be subject to change depending on political or social factors.

It is also important to note that permitless carry laws may still have restrictions on where and how firearms can be carried, such as certain locations or prohibited individuals.

Constitutional Carry, on the other hand, refers specifically to the protection of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. It is seen as a constitutional right that cannot be taken away or changed by state legislation.

Constitutional Carry also tends to have fewer restrictions on where and how firearms can be carried, as it is viewed as a protected right.

In practical terms, there may be little difference between permitless carry and Constitutional Carry laws, as both allow individuals to carry firearms without a permit or license.

However, the legal and philosophical differences between the two can have implications for how the laws are interpreted and enforced, and how they may change over time.

What are the Benefits of Constitutional Carry?

Protecting Second Amendment Rights: Constitutional Carry is seen as a way to protect the individual right to bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the US Constitution.

It eliminates the need for a permit or license to exercise this right, which is seen as an infringement on the individual's constitutional right.

Decreasing Government Regulation: Permit and license requirements for carrying a firearm can be seen as government overreach, and Constitutional Carry is viewed as a way to reduce government regulation and bureaucracy.

It is also seen as a way to reduce the cost and inconvenience of obtaining a permit or license.

Promoting Self-Defense: Supporters of Constitutional Carry argue that it promotes the ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves, their families, and their property without having to rely solely on law enforcement.

It is also seen as a way to deter criminals from committing crimes, as they are less likely to target an individual who may be armed.

Encouraging Responsible Gun Ownership: Supporters of Constitutional Carry argue that it encourages responsible gun ownership, as it requires individuals to be knowledgeable about the laws surrounding firearms and how to safely handle them.

It also promotes responsible carry practices, such as securing firearms when not in use and avoiding dangerous situations.

Reducing Crime: Supporters of Constitutional Carry argue that it can lead to a reduction in crime, as criminals are less likely to target individuals who they believe may be armed.

It is also seen as a way to reduce the number of gun-free zones, which are viewed as targets for criminals.
