Florida's Guns at Work Legislation

Two bills filed at the state capitol prohibit employers from banning guns on their property, as long as the weapons remain locked inside a vehicle.

The proposal would make it a crime to ban guns from the parking lot. Florida retailers remain undecided but concerned. And the question lawmakers must decide is whether guns nearby make you safer or not.

There’s no way of telling exactly how many people carry guns in their cars. But one study by an FSU criminology professor concluded that on any given day, more than five million Americans have a firearm in their cars and trucks.
