In Florida can I carry a gun (I have my CCW) into a movie theather?
Of course. Why would you think otherwise?
The CCW law is clear. It lists places you cannot carry. If it is not onthat list, it is okay.
Scary isn't it, that a licensed CCW holder doesn't know the law and where and where not a concealed firearm can be carried...
Regal Cinemas, for one, has a small 'no weapons' sign posted at the ticket counter.
Like all such signs it has no legal weight...only places prohibited by Fl statute are legally off-limits.
Of course the 'if made and asked to leave' scenario applies...if you don't you can be charged with criminal trespass.
Whether you choose to carry in such a place or refuse to give them your money and tell them why is up to you.
At my Regal, the "sign" is a little transparent sticky on the door listing all the rules and regulations. I had been going there for over a year and a half before I even noticed it. I still go there. They are the only movie theatre in the area.
Unless it's an official statute sign, then it means nothing.
1. No bringing in your own water or food
2. No bringing in your own guns
3. No refunds if the service we provide is worse than the sub-par service you expect.
Those unwritten rules don't exactly warm my heart. I only go see a movie once in a great while (maybe once every 4 or 5 months) and only when I'm too impatient to wait for that movie to go to DVD.
Yeah...the one I saw was the same sticker.
I ignored it a couple times in the past, but don't go there anymore.
The manager is an aquaintance and I told him my reason...he had no significant comment.
Ain't that the truth!!!
DVD and home theater are much better.
There is no such thing.
Perhaps not in Florida, but I know Texas has the 30.06 CHL trespassing statute.
No offense, but this thread is about carrying in movie theaters in Florida. Why muddy the waters with language about what may or may not be legal in other states?
You're right, I didn't even notice what forum this was in. I just check all the new posts from the GT main page, often not even looking at the forum location itself.
But, it could help a Floridian who visits or travels into Texas. Thanks for the heads up.
There's a sign at Regal? Never noticed.... never cared to notice...
Ya, don't look too closely at the signage on the entry door...
of course there is, it's on every entrance door to every hosbital you walk into.
sorry , Hospital
In FL, why would I do that?
True story, I went into a Greyhound station to drop someone off. They had a security guard with a wand I turned right around. There was a HUGE sign on their door that I didn't even notice. I will never travel Greyhound.
I've been to probably 8 hospitals in the past 18 months and only 2 had some kind of signage, and one was wimpy worded ("for the safety of our staff and patients, we request that firearms not be brought into our hospital..."). It's not general thing here in the Central Gulf Coast.
Signs in Florida have no legal meaning. Carry is prohibited in places by statute, not signs. There is no statute that says"if a place posts a sign you cannot carry there."
