I understand that however my point is that the law FORCING property owners to allow firearms on their property is violating their property rights and should not be allowed. What FL is doing is taking control over business rights when they have no legal grounds nor authority to do so. It is seen as a victory for gun owners but in my eyes it's a slippery slope at the loss of property owners' rights. I allow firearms on my property by choice, if Michigan FORCED me to allow it, they are violating my property rights. The state nor any government cannot dictate what items I allow on my property. That is my choice to decide, not theirs. They are overstepping their powers. It's time to tighten the leash on the government, not loosen it.The simple truth is that if you have a business open to the public, you are bound by the law to operate no matter what policies you choose to implement.
Not the same.Assuming the weapon stays in the car and is concealed such that no one else would know that it's there, then telling someone that they can't keep it there, is akin to telling them that as a condition of employment they're not allowed to keep guns in their home for self protection either...........in my ever so humble opinion.

OK time to reverse this. What state or county in the US does not "force" you to do anything at all in your business property?I understand that however my point is that the law FORCING property owners to allow firearms on their property is violating their property rights and should not be allowed.
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
Ego will kill you. Leave it at home.
I say that until a private business owner can GUARANTEE that no criminal will bring a gun onto his property, which might threaten MYSELF, he has no right to prevent MYSELF from bringing mine.
