It’s th’ Muricuhn way (via Reuters):
Most Florida residents would be allowed to take guns to work under a measure passed by Florida lawmakers on Wednesday.
The bill, allowing workers to keep guns in their cars for self-protection, was approved by the Florida Senate by a vote of 26-13. It now goes to Republican Gov. Charlie Crist to sign into law.
Normally this would be more evidence that Republicans are out of their minds, but I’m sure debate on this one must have caused them a great deal of heartache. On the one hand you have the NRA insisting that if people aren’t allowed to bring guns to work, only guns will go to work. Or something. On the other:
Florida business groups are urging the governor to veto the measure, saying owners should be allowed to determine what happens on their property.
“We are disappointed that politics clearly won over good policy,” Mark Wilson, president and chief executive of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, said in a statement.
Ruh-roh! Better check those campaign coffers boys.
