Above the Gun Law: Some Florida Businesses Claim Loophole Exemptions

July 14th, 2008 by flanews

A controversial gun law that went into effect on July 1st, has some Florida companies looking for loopholes. The law allows licensed gun owners to keep their guns locked in their cars while theyre at work. Disney employees have complained about the new law. Now a toilet paper company, Georgia Pacific Palatka Mill, is claiming they have federal protection against the law. Three people filed complaints against the paper company with the Attorney Generals office. NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer said Disney and the mill shouldnt be exempt from the law.

The corporate giants in the state of Florida are really reaching in their effort to take away rights of law abiding men and women who work hard in this country, said Hammer.

An injunction filed to temporary suspend the law was filed in late June. A federal judge is expected to make a decision on the injunction this week.
