Florida law requires any minor under the age of 16 who is using a BB gun, air or gas-operated gun, or electric weapon or device, for any purpose whatsoever, to be under the supervision and in the presence of an adult who is acting with the consent of the minor’s parent.1 Florida law also penalizes any adult responsible for the welfare of any child under the age of 16 years who knowingly permits such child to use or have in his or her possession any BB gun, air or gas-operated gun, or electric weapon or device, except under the supervision and in the presence of an adult who is acting with the consent of the minor’s parent.2

Florida law does not explicitly regulate possession of non-powder guns on school grounds.
