Safe Storage/Gun Lock Requirements

Florida does not require that a locking device accompany the sale or transfer of a firearm. Nevertheless, any person who stores or leaves a loaded firearm on premises under his or her control, and knows or reasonably should know that a person under age 16 is likely to gain access to the firearm without the lawful permission of the minor’s parent or without supervision required by law, must keep the firearm in a securely locked box or container or in a location which a reasonable person would believe to be secure, or secure the firearm with a trigger lock.

Federal Law also applies!
