When it comes to firearms, controversy arises and people tend to make purchases they wouldn’t normally make, for fear of future cost hikes or limitations on availability. I get many questions regarding gun requirements, and the laws that deal with the purchase, transfer or sale of a firearm. Those statutes are pretty easy to provide to individuals in need of answers. One issue that we don’t talk about enough, is the safekeeping of those firearms after the purchase.

Yes, in Florida there are regulations that dictate what you must do even in your own home, if you own a firearm. Florida State Statute 790.174, “Safe Storage of firearms required” specifically deals with this issue.
