In Florida, even though the State has a reputation for being pro-second amendment, there are severe penalties for committing a felony with a firearm. Florida's 10-20-life law requires courts to impose lengthy prison sentences when a firearm is involved in the commission of certain felony offenses. 10 years if a firearm is pulled, 20 years if a firearm is fired, 25 to life if someone is shot and seriously injured or killed. Additionally, certain offenses, such as a felon in actual possession of a firearm, carry 3 year min/man's (minimum mandatory sentences).
