Marinon Hammer Explains Individual Rights

LibertyTCPalm: Time to stand up for individual rights Do you give up your rights when you take a job? Does every employer automatically get the right to search your vehicle for anything they want to? Can they block you from carrying union literature? Can they declare no bibles allowed?
Florida citizens have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms for self-protection, and Florida law specifically guarantees the right to transport and carry firearms in private vehicles for lawful purposes. Those rights are well established in law and in public policy.

Yet some corporate giants are violating those individual rights, claiming a constitutional right to control business property, when no such blanket right exists. Corporate lobbyists have even claimed businesses have the right to ban any personal property inside private vehicles from "guns" to "Bibles" to "bananas." That is nonsense.
It is time to stand up for rights of the individual. [via NRA-ILA]
