The ?bring your guns to work? bill, HB 503/SB 1130, has resurfaced this session in the Florida legislature, and appears headed toward passage. This legislation would make it illegal for businesses and other private property owners to have policies prohibiting firearms on their private property. The House Environmental & Natural Resources Council has approved HB 503 and the Senate Criminal Justice Committee passed SB 1130 on March 18, 2008 by a vote of 7-1. Essentially, the bill makes it unlawful for an employer to ?discriminate against? an employee for exercising the constitutional right to bear arms or exercising the right of self-defense if a gun is never exhibited on company property other than for lawful defensive purpose.
