Disney Ignores Guns Law

July 3rd, 2008 by flanews

A controversial gun bill is now state law but Disney says they don’t have to obey it. Despite a court challenge, Floridians with gun licenses are now allowed to bring their weapons to work even if their employers object. Disney says a loophole in the law, that exempts companies that store explosives, lets them off the hook. Disney has a license to store fireworks. The state Attorney General’s office has received a complaint against Disney. Attorney General Spokeswoman Sandi Copes said they’re still trying to decide if Disney can legally keep its employees from having their guns locked in their cars while they’re at work.

“Disney’s memo says they’re not subject to the handgun portability law, so right now we’re working to determine if that is the case, what needs to happen to enforce that law, or what is the situation at hand. Right now we only have one complaint from a consumer, but we will be working together to share information at this point,” said Copes.

Disney’s not the only one challenging the law. The Florida Chamber of Commerce filed for an injunction before the law took effect. The judge considering the temporary ban on the law said he’ll make a decision by the middle of the month.
