Upholding the Law

Now that a judge has upheld Florida's new law extending Right-to-Carry to employees who wish to leave their lawfully owned firearms in their locked cars while at work, you can expect opponents of the measure to appeal the decision. After all, these same groups are the ones who filed suit to begin with. I guess they just can't bear to see their employees travel to and from work while exercising their right to keep and bear arms.

I expect we'll see Disney, Universal Studios and Georgia Pacific continue to claim that the law doesn't apply to them, despite the fact that legislators who voted for (and wrote) the measure say they never intended to exempt these businesses. It's up to the attorney general in Florida to ensure that these businesses are held to the same standard as everyone else in the state.

But the judge's decision in this case means that Right-to-Carry holders won't be disarmed by their employers, and that's a huge victory. Floridians can take heart that the court system is working, and that the NRA and the Unified Sportsmen of Florida will remain constantly vigilant in guarding your Second Amendment rights in the Sunshine State.
