Florida gun permit allows concealed carry throughout Tri-State

The letters arrive here from Cincinnati, Covington and Lawrenceburg. Inside there are applications for a Florida permit to carry concealed weapons.

No, the applicants aren’t planning for a hunting trip to Florida. They’re getting a non-resident CCW permit that works back home.

Florida’s mail-order permit allows someone to carry a concealed handgun in 32 states including Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The permit is also easier to get than those in Ohio and Kentucky, which both require applicants to complete specific hours of training, and demonstrate competency on a shooting range.

Out of state applicants can simply mail a certificate for a basic hunting safety class, along with their fingerprints and photographs. After a thorough background check, the permit arrives in the mail.

Kentucky and Ohio already honor each other’s permits through reciprocity agreements. But while an Ohio permit holder can carry a concealed firearm in Indiana, an Indiana permit holder cannot carry concealed in Ohio.

That’s because Indiana’s permit requires no training whatsoever.
