In Florida can you kill a snake with a handgun if you posses a concealed weapons permit?

I'll give the answer a shot (no pun intended). It depends on the circumstances. The handgun permit and handgun permit laws allow you legally carry a handgun, but the handgun permit laws don't specify when you can use the gun. When you can use the gun is covered under the state's deadly force laws. So, if a snake is attacking you and you have no other choice but to shoot it, it's probably ok. If you're talking about randomly shooting snakes that you see on the side of the highway or somewhere, probably not.

Can adult gift a handgun to an 15 year old?

Depends on the laws where you are- we get questions from SEVERAL nations, and laws vary. In the US, it will vary by state. The issue is not so much "can a minor own a handgun" as it is "Can a minor POSSESS a handgun?" Surprisingly, the answer MAY be yes- with the permission of the Minor's parents, on their own property, or in some instances, when the minor has the written permission of the parents. In some places, a 15 yr old may be working on a ranch, and be permitted to carry a handgun. While I would like to be able to give you a definitive yes/no answer, there are too many variables to do so. Sorry-
