In FL is it legal to carry concealed with my permit at church if my church has a day care? The law states that daycare is part of their definition of school, but when I'm there it is a church (weekends) and not a daycare. The church does use the daycare rooms during the weekend as their nursery area. I have two in the nursery so I do go into that area during church times.

Just looking for opinions.

Thanks

No problem. I had some of my wedding party carring at my church. It wasn't because I did'nt feel safe. It was because we were in a bad neighbourhood and I didn't know if my ex-husband would try and crash my special day. There were a few kids there but I still felt better knowing I had some armed freinds and now husband packing heat.

I don't blame you for wanting to carry. With the way the worlds going I really don't blame you at all.
