Firearms Locked In Car Survey


"A bill that would allow Florida residents to take firearms to work and store them in their vehicles is gaining ground in the Legislature after failing last year.

The Senate Committee on Criminal Justice approved the bill with a 7-1 vote. It would allow employees to keep guns in their cars at work, as long as the guns were locked in the trunk or glove compartment.

A similar bill being considered in last year's legislative session failed ess than a week after 32 people were shot at Virginia Tech University.

Supporters of the bill say people have a constitutional right in the Second Amendment to carry firearms and they should be able to keep guns in their cars for protection.

"I think Americans have a right to protect themselves," Mike Italia told WJXT's Nikki Preede. "I'm all for it."Businesses oppose the gun legislation, arguing that employers have a constitutional right to set the rules on their own property and should be able to ban guns there if they choose.

"We had an incident with an employee bringing a gun to work, which frightened everybody," said Vince Ferrigno, who owns a small manufacturing firm. "That's one of the reasons I think it's a problem."

Well now, Vincy, the reason some soccer Mom's became frightened is because they CAN. Great way to attract attention, so pay them no never-mind and stick to being a patriotic American who doesn't give a rats ass what some prima donna thinks. You can't psychoanalyze everyone who enters your premises and wonder what might or might not scare them, but let me be the first to say that I wouldn't use your business were it the last remaining one on planet earth for the services I needed.
