Is a pistol in a bag "encased" on a bicycle legal similar to an encased pistol in my car without a CCW?
{added later} I live in Florida where it is legal to carry a pistol snapped in a holster or bag anywhere in the car (no three step rule).

Thanks,
Seth

I added that I live in FL. Bicycles are held to the same road rules as cars- other than licensing. You can get DUI on a bike, you are supposed to honor all street signs etc. So, I don't know if that carries over to pistols since a car is obviously more secure than a bike.

In FL it is legal to have my pistol anywhere in the car as long as it is "encased". Examples of encased are: a buttoned holster, or naked in the glove box, or in a zipped bag.

Let me know if anyone has any insight. I may have to email the attorney general's office on this one as I don't want to take my law enforcement friends' word for it.

Thanks drummin_man.

Threefortyduster, I would like to see the legal language if you've found it. I read section 790 but I may have missed the part about bikes. Thanks for your input.
