My CCW expires in July, I haven't received any renewal paperwork. Should I worry? If I should what do I need to do?

Around here, we just go to the DMV and renew, and it takes all of about 20 minutes. You might call ahead, tell them when it expires, and ask when you can come and renew. I think you can renew as much as 90 days prior to expiration. However, I am certain they will not let you do it over a year before expiring. I tried that once, didn't work.

Democrat Nikki Fried, Florida's Commissioner of Agriculture & Consumer Services, is in charge of processing the state's concealed carry permit applications. She has announced through a press release that her office is halting the processing of all conceal carry permit applications through at least April 19 due to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

I am in Nassau County. We can just go to the DMV and renew if we want. Is it different elsewhere in FL? I understand the current situation would halt processing of new applications, but I'm not understanding how it halts renewals. Help me out.

Florida Carry is challenging the move. Why? Because a right delayed is a right denied.


They're calling on Governor Ron DeSantis to waive the fingerprinting requirement or, short of that, temporarily make Florida a constitutional carry state during the emergency.

No word from Marion Hammer or the NRA on this issue. Since Florida has no Unrestricted Method of Carry like other states. It is a CCW or nothing. We don't have unrestricted non permit required Open Carry. Hell, Open Carry is illegal except for when you're on your property or actively hunting, fishing, or camping. If you're just going about your day like let's say to Publix to get baby formula. Nope, you can't legally open carry and if you don't have a CCW pemrit, you can't legally conceal carry either.

I have emailed and tried to call Desantis and ask that he wave the waiting period to buy a firearm during this state of emergency also, and I called Florida Carry and asked if they could help contact the Governor.

@GaryM

Once they open back up go to the one on 19. 29399 U.S. Highway 19 N., Clearwater. Make an appointment a head of time. I just did mine 2 weeks ago, it took longer to park then to get my renewal permit.

I like what Florida carry is doing asking the Governor to suspend open carry and concealed carry enforcement  during a state of emergency, I'm hoping that that they also include waving the wait time/cool off period after purchasing a firearm.

Nice idea, but it will never happen. He would receive way too much flak for even suggesting it. Too many have acquired a taste for feel good 'gun control' that achieves nothing else.

Somewhat of a thread hijack.

I need to get fingerprinted so I can apply by mail for my CCW (NOT renewal, first time).  Can I use a Silencershop Kiosk for this if I can't get a police/sheriff department to do it right now?

I have a kiosk and as far as I know none of that 'personal information' can be used outside of the SS system, aside from NFA Branch receiving it, of course. Maybe a shop near you can do some ink rolled ones for you. I keep FD-258 cards and ink here, but have never tried it. The kiosk eliminated the need to do it.

Department  of AG issued a bulletin to Law Enforcement that CWPs were extended 30 days past expiration dont remember if it is plus 30 during state if emergency till it ends but the idea is its obvious you can't renew so its a quick fix.


For a Florida CWP you have to have fingerprints taken by a law enforcement agency if you are using a hard card according to the website dont think that has always been the case but it is now and that aint gonna happen till this shit is over with.

Mine expires in June and I just got the paper work in the mail on March 21st.You will  be about a month behind me. I would not be worried at this time . And I think they are giving you an extra month past the expire date because of the virus.

Guess I will watch for a renewal notice and if not then get in line first thing on the morning of April 19th.
I swear, I thought it would take some sort of unprecedented disaster for things to get this fucked up but yet here we are.

It doesn't take much. I suppose the good news is that if it gets bad enough none of us will need to renew our carry license

This makes it sound like that is no longer an option:

Florida shuts down online concealed-weapon license app

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried has shut down the online app for a Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License, (CWFL).

There’s no reason given for the unusual move, other than a brief note: “Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) precautions, you will not be able to apply online for a Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License.”

Instead, applicants are told they can download the CWFL application and mail it to Fried’s department.

Now I’m certainly not an epidemiologist, but lately I’ve read enough about the coronavirus to understand it lives on the surfaces of things, like paper envelopes or paper CWFL applications.

I haven’t yet heard that the virus can be transmitted online so, to me, Fried’s thinking is a bit backwards.

I could understand — in an abundance of caution — cancelling paper CWFL applications to safeguard her employees, but certainly not the online app, right?

This makes no sense from an antivirus perspective.

However, it makes perfect sense from an anti-gun perspective.

In my humble opinion, Fried wants to slow down the CWFL application process because it’s one facet of her office she’s never supported. She is decidedly anti-gun.

Online apps are much faster than snail mail, and she knows this.

Shame on you, Commissioner Fried. Your actions and the reasons behind them are blatantly obvious.

I hope Gov. Ron DeSantis holds you accountable.

Fried’s office did not immediately return calls seeking comment for this column.

I just got fingerprinted for some NFA stuff at a local place that does it.

Not electronic like at the state offices...

They will accept those as far as I know with a mailed in application.

Where about in FL are you?

It has been a while since I paid any mind to this stuff but, I think there was a calander limit on how old the prints could be, or it may have been the picture? Can't remember but it was stated some where in the package of paperwork.

The article mentioned above  seems to refer to new applications only. I just googled " fresh from florida ccw renewal " and it appears that the page is still up for renewals , although  you will need the tracking number from the renewal card you were mailed. This is exactly how I renewed mine last time and it was very fast.
