Florida tries to end the Parking Lot Bans

The Florida Senate is considering SB-206, which would protect possession of firearms in vehicles.

Big business likes to think that they are all powerful, but they have no right to tell me what legal items I can store in my vehicle.

Do my rights stop when I take a job? Could a business tell me I had to vote for a certain party? Can they tell me I can't belong to a certain religion? Can they restrict my right to freedom of speech? Why can they infringe on my right to defend myself?

I have always said that one of the groups that benefits most from being armed is women who are being stalked by abusive/murderous ex-husbands and ex-boyfriends. The 2004 FBI Uniform Crime Report indicates that 33 percent of all female murder victims are killed by husbands or boyfriends. These women need to be armed exactly when they are on a known schedule to-and-from known locations. To-and-from work is one of those times and places.
