florida is under a state of emergency- you can now carry concealed per the constitution?

you mean under provisions of:
790.01 Unlicensed carrying of concealed weapons or concealed firearms.—

(3) This section does not apply to:
(a) A person who carries a concealed weapon, or a person who may lawfully possess a firearm and who carries a concealed firearm, on or about his or her person while in the act of evacuating during a mandatory evacuation order issued during a state of emergency declared by the Governor pursuant to chapter 252 or declared by a local authority pursuant to chapter 870. As used in this subsection, the term “in the act of evacuating” means the immediate and urgent movement of a person away from the evacuation zone within 48 hours after a mandatory evacuation is ordered. The 48 hours may be extended by an order issued by the Governor. https://www.flsenate.gov/Laws/Statutes/2016/790.01

so if your tired butt is evacuating before the path is yet established...you may apparently carry concealed.

please take care of yourself and those you care for as well as those who depend on you.
