Mask vs Gun

In Florida it is illegal to wear a mask and carry a concealed weapon even with a CWP. The Pandemic makes no difference.
I carry my Glock 27 always so when I enter a store and they tell me I must wear a mask I ask them :“Do you have a safe where I can secure my firearm?”
I have not been refused to be able to shop in any store while carrying my firearm.
This may not be of any benefit for those outside the state of Florida but given the choice of a mask or a firearm, I chose the firearm.

The USCCA has identified just two states with statutes against carrying a concealed firearm while wearing a mask: California and Illinois (although sheriffs and county prosecutors in Illinois have made statements indicating that wearing a mask to protect others from COVID-19 while carrying a gun isn’t illegal as long as the wearer isn’t wearing the mask while committing a crime).
