More Companies Claim Gun Law Exemption

July 16th, 2008 by flanews

Another Company is claiming its exempt from the states new gun law. The guns at work law went into effect on July 1st. The law allows licensed gun owners to keep their guns locked in their cars while theyre at work. Disney says its exempt because of a loophole allowing companies that store explosives to keep guns off their property. A Florida paper company is also claiming their exempt because of they use a lot of fuel. Now the Jacksonville Electric Authority says it can keep guns out of its parking lot. NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer said the companies dont have the exemptions theyre claiming.

I do not believe that any company thats claimed an exemption has a valid reason for claiming exemptions. Theyre all phony. Theyre trumped up, 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.
