Take Your Gun to the Graveyard

April 26th, 2010 by flanews

After a judge partially blocked a new law allowing people to take leave their guns locked in their cars while theyíre at work, there are new efforts to revive the law. State Senator Durrell Peaden is trying to amend his agriculture bill to allow all Floridians who own firearms legally to keep them in their cars no matter where they travel. Peaden got the idea from a constituent who was kick out of a funeral service because his gun was hanging in the window of his pickup truck.

ďThatís not Wal-Marts, thatís not Disney World, thatís a cemetery. If you canít take your gun to the cemetery we live in the wrong country,Ē said Peaden.

The Florida Chamber of Commerce is fighting Peadenís amendment. The chamber says business owners should have the right to keep guns off of their property.
