    Another Win for Concealed Carry in Florida?

    Prior to this "new law" where were you supposed to keep your gun if you didnt take it inside your job? The bushes?

    Just watch the video.

    Such bias...

    And how would the repeal of this law keep someone already intent on shooting up the workplace from bringing a gun to work or INSIDE the work place to do damage?

    They still don't get it...it's not the typical CCW person who commits crimes, but it is the typical CCW person who may just prevent the loss of life by having his/her weapon close by...

    Another shoot 'em up in the streets and watch the blood flow story...

    Typical spin.

    You could always legally keep a gun in the car. The only difference now is that the employer can't prohibit you from doing so in their own discretion.

    We all know the press is going to spin a story dealing with guns in a bad light.
    Any law like this is going to be challanged, almost automatically. As the lawyer who was interviewed stated it violates the property owners right. I believe the Oklahoma law that allows to have a gun in your car on company property is still in the court system waiting to be decided.

    The significance of this law is really blown out of proportion. Yes, it does protect us from having our car searched, but I seriously doubt Publix or McDonalds is going to go out and search their employees' cars, much less their customers' cars. It's the small companies with the anti-gun owners that this protects gun owners from.

    And it's not like there's going to be this huge increase of people keeping guns in their cars because of this law. LOTS of people have been doing it for a long time. What I do see happening is an increase in concealed weapons licenses, which is actually a good thing....

    Typical liberal anti-gun spin on things; I wish the law would have made it legal for schools too.

    Its already legal in Florida for anyone who can legally own a gun to have it in there glove box, even without a CCL.

    If I understand correctly, this new law give CCL holders the right to leave the pistol in there car even if the employer is against guns, and bands them at work.

    Thanks Governor Crist

    Luckily my boss has no issue with me keeping a gun in my car. He does have an issue with me bringing it in... part of the reason I want to get a pocket Kel-Tec .380

    Exactly. And what that means is that the people who have already been keeping a gun in their car but don't have a license now will go get licenses so they won't get fired. Again, not a bad thing.

    What everyone dismisses are the non-defensive gun owners - the hunters, and the sport shooters. I don't have a carry gun (yet), but I put my .22 and my range bag in my trunk every Friday and go to the range to practice silhouette shooting after work. It's not loaded, and it definitely isn't a defensive gun (Still a nice gun though - Ruger Single Six stainless).

    Well, it is MSM. They do not let the facts get in the way of a good story. What do you expect?

    [/rant on] I would really like to see an unbiased, and well researched accurate report from the MSM about workplace, and school shootings that have taken place in the past. You know the scenario--a mentally deranged individual brings a gun from home and enters a building containing people who cannot defend themselves because they are unable to get access to their own gun because it had to be left at home due to an employer's, or school's policy. End result is several dead and wounded innocent people because the business or school cannot, or will not, provide a proper level of security and, at the same time they deny those innocent folks the right to protect themselves.

    I think you misread what I said. What I meant was that on the record certain big companies may be against carrying a gun in your car, but I think the smaller companies will be more likely to actually want to check their employees' cars.

    these news people really bug me the way they do things. also why do they always find the most illiterate people hanging around to ask questions to?

    still, a win is better than a defeat concerning this new law.

    This same type law was passed in MS the same time as the Castle Doctrine. I'm sure all the forum members in FL remember the media decrying the Castle Doctrine when it was passed there--Blood running in the streets (Chicken Little metality). Just tell the nay sayers to look at the 5 or so states that already have laws that say companies can't prohibit employees the right to keep a gun locked in their personal vehicle on company property. They can't back up their hysteria with any facts.--typical
