SUBJECT: HB-129 Protect Possession of Firearms in Vehicles in Parking Lots

 

We are working hard to get HB-129 to the House floor for passage and need your help contacting members of the House.

 

Every gun owner who comes to Florida as a tourist, visitor, or on business needs to wade into this fight to protect the right to have a firearm in your vehicle for self-defense and other lawful purposes.  This right belongs to ALL gun owners everywhere -- not just those who live in Florida.

 

HELP protect the rights of all Floridians, out of state visitors, and tourists who visit our state by motor vehicle and who carry firearms in their vehicles for protection and other lawful purposes.

 

Some Florida businesses are trying to ban guns in cars.  They are violating the constitutional rights of gun owners and Florida law.  HB-129 protects your right to have a gun in your car for lawful purposes. 

 

Please immediately send email to members of the HOUSE and URGE THEM TO SUPPORT HB-129 by Representative Dennis Baxley.

 

(Below is a list of the email addresses of those you need to contact)

 

IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF YOUR EMAIL PUT:

BACKGROUND:

 

HB-129 Protects your right to have a firearm in your vehicle for lawful purposes and to park your vehicle in parking lots.

 

Carrying firearms in a vehicle for hunting, target shooting, or protection of yourself and your family obviously means you can leave that firearm locked in the vehicle in a parking lot when you go grocery shopping, to the doctor's office, to the movie, to visit a sick friend in the hospital, to rent a movie, to the shoe store or anywhere else normal people travel to conduct business.

 

Florida law, the U.S. Constitution, and the Florida Constitution clearly and unequivocally give law-abiding citizens to have firearms in their vehicles for lawful purposes.

 

How can anyone justify telling a woman who is being stalked that she can't have a firearm for protection? In many cases police tell these women to get a gun for protection because police can't be there to protect her -- and calling 911 is nothing more than government sponsored dial-a-prayer.

 

A business owner or manager has no more right to say you can't have a firearm in your private vehicle than they have a right to say you can't have a pair of sun glasses, an umbrella, a Bible or a baby seat.

 

Such an anti-gun political exercise is not good business sense. They want your money but don't respect your rights.

 

Businesses are not allowed to discriminate against employees and customers because of race, religion, political party, color of eyes, hair or weight.  And they certainly can't discriminate because of the exercise of lawful self-defense.  Make no mistake, these gun ban policies are blatant discrimination against people who chose to exercise a constitutional right and take responsibility for their own safety.
