When police arrived, they spotted 24-year-old Randall Fay of Melbourne Beach sitting at the bar with a beer. Fay stated he had a .40-caliber Springfield XD firearm with a full magazine of 16 rounds and that he had pulled it out because he was nervous about someone else at the bar.

I will assume the gentleman has a Concealed Weapons Permit because the charges are not the ones you can get for illegally carrying while stupid.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW THE LAW. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO STAY UPDATED ON ANY CHANGES OF THE LAW AND IT SI YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO OBEY THE LAW.
When you apply for a CWP in Florida, the State graciously provides you with a copy of the 790 Statutes and even the little pamphlet on how to apply for a CWP in Florida has a big notation about not carrying where alcohol is served.
And I don’t care if you are not from Florida: Make sure you get the proper information for your state and in case of doubt, ask the right people for clarification.
That is all.

I went to school with Randy Fay, but haven’t seen him in years. The charges he received are misdemeanors, I think, right? If so, does that mean that he can still keep his CWP? Do they suspend it, for any amount of time? Just curious, because he was a very good kid growing up, just funny… never had enemies, and I think he may not have even known he was breaking the law… maybe when he pulled it out and chambered, or acted like it… but he probably didn’t know he could go to jail for carrying it in a bar.
If he is found guilty of a misdemeanor crime of violence, his license can be suspended/revoked (Fl Statutes 790.06)
