BACKGROUND:

This bill will stop businesses from searching private vehicles and violating the constitutional rights of customers and employees.

Your Second Amendment rights are at the very heart of this issue.  In addition to prohibiting  searches of private vehicles in parking lots,  the bill also prevents businesses from asking customers or employees to disclose what personal private property is stored in their private vehicles and prevents action against customers and employees who refuse to divulge that private information.  Furthermore, it prohibits action against a customer or employee based on information provided by a third party.

Some Florida businesses are trying to ban firearms in cars in parking lot used by customers and employees.  Those businesses are discriminating against people who exercise their constitutional rights – they are violating the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners and Florida law.

Corporate giants have been trampling constitutional rights.  Some are even attempting to coerce and intimidate law-abiding gun owners into giving up their constitutional rights as a condition of employment.

 

Your Rights Are In Danger!

 

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

The U.S. Constitution and the Florida Constitution unequivocally protects the right of 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 firearm 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 in your private vehicle.

Businesses 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.  They certainly should not be able to discriminate because one chooses to exercise of a Constitutional right.

 

Make no mistake, these gun ban policies blatantly discriminate against people who choose to exercise their constitutional right to take responsibility for their own safety.
