It’s a lot. I know the media is quick to give that stat a try, but the facts are that almost all states get to decide how much they’re willing to pay for a gun. And even in those states that don’t, you’re still going to have to pay.
I know it seems like you cant get arrested for illegal firearms possession, but it’s not just the state that decides how much you’re allowed to have. As an example, if you live in the state of Florida, you’re allowed to have up to an ounce of marijuana. A person can also have up to 3,000 grams of a semi-automatic rifle or shotgun.
If youre ever arrested for possession of a gun you may be able to argue your case in court, but you could also end up just getting put on a bus or jail cell and sent to the slammer. (and you know what happens to the people who end up on these buses and jails.
Florida is the 5th largest state in the country by land mass and fourth largest by population. Its population is around 7.8 million and its GDP is over $1.4 billion. Also, you can be arrested for possession of a gun even if youve never done any drugs in your life.

So how much is bail for gun possession? Well, you can be arrested for possession of alcohol (a misdemeanor), but even if you haven’t done anything illegal you can be detained for 30 days for gun possession. That’s a lot of time in jail.
The reason is that in Florida, if you are arrested and you have a gun, you can be booked into jail for 10 days and get released with a $100.00 bond. If you have a gun in your possession for less than 10 days, then you can be booked into jail for just a day, and if you have a gun in your possession for more than 10 days, then you can be booked into jail for an unlimited number of days.
This is something I learned from one of my old law professors, and she said this because she had seen too many criminal defendants who had been arrested and then just left the jail without paying the bail. She said that this was because they had no way to pay the bail. And she told me that a lot of people in the police department make the mistake of charging a bail amount that is too high and then letting the defendant be released with bail that is too low.
The problem with this is that it is an easy way to create cases of people who are basically free and then try to get them back in jail. For example, someone who is charged with a misdemeanor but has bail set at $250 may not be able to pay, but if he has a warrant out for his arrest, he can go to jail for an unlimited amount of time.
This is a real problem in the criminal justice system. People are often charged with the same offense at the same time, but it is very rare that they are both charged with a crime that has the same penalty. Typically, if you are charged with both a DUI and a burglary, you are facing a much longer sentence because you have a DUI that is significantly more serious than your initial burglary charge.
