The news story states:
Under the statute that went into effect 14 days ago schools, correctional institutions and businesses with combustible or explosive materials can still prohibit employees from bringing guns to work.
The exemption also covers any property used for national defense or homeland security -- JEA believes that includes them.
JEA officials said normal operation of the sheriff's office and fire and rescue units depend on their utilities, making their company a very valuable asset to homeland security.
The electric company believes they qualify under a Homeland Security exemption?!? Give me a break! What a load of crap. I truly hope some employee takes them to court on this one. Talk about a stretch!
