What Do Rosie O'Donnell and The Florida Chamber of Commerce Have In Common?

What Do Rosie O'Donnell and The Florida Chamber of Commerce Have In Common?

They both work with the Million Mom March and The Brady Campaign to destroy our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

The anti-gun Florida Chamber of Commerce and the anti-gun Florida Retail Federation are now openly working with the Brady Campaign, a national gun control organization formerly called Handgun Control Inc., and the Million Mom March organization, an anti-gun group associated with Rosie O'Donnell. 

They have formed a new anti-gun organization called "Floridians Against Workplace Violence" into which they can funnel money from corporate giants to fund the fight to take away our 2nd Amendment rights and your privacy rights.

In fact, the Chamber's new anti-gun arm has, as its spokesperson, Linda Vaughn, whom you will remember as the Southeast Regional Director of the Brady Campaign & Million Mom March.

Tuesday, Floridians Against Workplace Violence bragged at a press conference about TV ads they have produced for their campaign to trample freedom and individual rights.

This should come as no surprise.

Last year Mark Wilson, Vice President of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, was caught coordinating and directing the anti-gun attack of the Brady Campaign against our right to keep and bear arms in Florida.  Wilson even encouraged the Brady Campaign to threaten legislators.

Pro-gun members of the Chambers of Commerce and Florida Retail Federation should be outraged that they are paying dues to anti-gun business organizations that are trying to destroy our constitutional rights.

Based on phone calls received, there is an overwhelming majority of small business owners, who are pro-gun and support our right to keep a firearm in your locked private vehicle for self-defense and other lawful purposes.

However, these business groups are being controlled by corporate giants like Disney, Publix Super Markets and Wal-Mart. We believe small business members are being ignored and misled by the anti-gun leadership of these organizations.

The Brady Campaign recently put out an alert urging the anti-gun business community to flood legislators with anti-gun email against Senate Bill 2356 Senator Peaden and House Bill 1417 by Representative Baxley.

These bills will stop out-of-control corporate giants from searching the private vehicle of customers and employees in business parking lots. The legislation protects your right to transport and have a firearm locked in your personal private vehicle for self-defense or lawful purposes when your vehicle is parked in a parking lot.

Anti-gun corporate giants are working to defeat this legislation so they can continue their abusive behavior and constitutional violations.

Claims by the anti-gun Florida Chamber of Commerce and the anti-gun Florida Retail Federation that "a business has the right to control everything that happens on their property" are more than imaginary -- they are FALSE.

Government has the right and the duty to regulate businesses to protect the rights of customers and employees.

Below are listed some of the anti-gun organizations and big business bullies who want your money at the expense of your freedom:

Disney, Publix Super Markets, Wal-Mart, Chico's, Lockheed Martin, Harris Corporation, Florida Chamber of Commerce, Florida Retail Federation, Associated Industries of Florida, Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association.
