"As we have reported, U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle handed down his ruling upholding Florida's "Guns-at-Work" law.
Today, Thursday, July 31, Howard Troxler of the St. Petersburg Times wrote an analysis of the ruling. We doubt you'll find a better one from anyone in the media."
"I like readin' a good court ruling, and this was a good one on Florida's "take your gun to work" law.
On the surface, the judge sure looks like he cut the baby in half:
• Florida employers have to let employees keep guns in their cars if they have concealed-weapons permits.
• But businesses can still have a no-gun policy for customers. That part of the new law is on hold.
So, what's the difference between employees and customers?
If you're trying to figure out some important constitutional distinction, don't bother. Here's the real answer:
Because the Florida Legislature screwed up the wording of the law, that's all. That can be fixed.
Otherwise, U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle ruled, the Legislature was perfectly able to pass the "guns to work" law.The ruling, therefore, is more of a victory for the pro-gun side and a fine example of judicial restraint — even by a mighty federal judge — against the political power of a state Legislature."
Yep. A Federal Judge said that the liberals can't make us their new slaves. No blacks allowed, Chinamen Go Home!, Spics Stay Out, and now Free Men Need Not Work Here is old news.
I have private property. It is NOT open to the public. Property that IS open to the public has to follow different rules. Blacks and chinamen and spics and evil gun owners have always been welcome at Fort Fits. Now Disney has to act the same way.
America. Thanks for being there for us.
