Weapons Carried Pursuant to a Valid Concealed Weapons Permit

 

Pursuant to Section 790.06, Florida Statutes, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is authorized to issue licenses to carry concealed weapons or concealed firearms to qualified persons and to recognize reciprocity with regard to licenses to carry concealed weapons or concealed firearms issued by other states. The statute defines concealed weapons or concealed firearms as a handgun, electronic weapon or device, tear gas gun, knife, or billie, but the term does not include a machine gun as defined in Section 790.001(9).

 

Any person in compliance with the terms of such license may carry a concealed weapon or concealed firearm onto the Manatee County Fairgrounds. The licensee must carry the license, together with valid identification, at all times in which the licensee is in actual possession of a concealed weapon or firearm and must display both the license and proper identification upon demand by a law enforcement officer.

 

Prohibited Activities

 

Pursuant to Section 616.185, Florida Statutes, entering and remaining upon any grounds or facilities owned, operated, or controlled by Manatee River Fair Association, Inc. (the “Association”) and committing any act that disrupts the orderly conduct of any authorized activity of Manatee River Fair Association, Inc., or its lessees, licensees, or the general public on those grounds or facilities; or entering and remaining upon any grounds or facilities owned, operated, or controlled by Manatee River Fair Association, Inc. that disrupts the orderly conduct of any authorized activity of the Association, or its lessees, licensees, or the general public on those grounds or facilities constitutes trespass.

 

A law enforcement officer may arrest any person on or off the premises, without a warrant, if the officer has probable cause for believing such person has committed the offense of trespass upon the Manatee County Fairgrounds. 

 

Such an arrest does not render the law enforcement officer criminally or civilly liable for false arrest, false imprisonment, or unlawful detention.

 

Any individuals who engage in disruptive activity as described above, while on the Manatee County Fairgrounds will be asked to leave the Manatee County Fairgrounds. They will also be issued trespass notices and may be subject to criminal charges, as well as civil causes of action.
