Sorry to dig up an old thread! I found this very informative thread, and is consistent with what I read as far as Florida laws pertaining to Personal conveyance.
I do have a question for the legal eagles out there. I would never willingly tell an officer if stopped about a handgun in my glovebox. I can legally own it, and it is my right under the law. My registration and insurance documents are located elsewhere. However, what if he asks? It seems there might be some gray area there, as it pertains to my civil rights. I haven't gotten pulled over in 20 years, but don't they ask if you have weapons, alchohol, or drugs in the car? Pardon my ignorance if I am way off.
