More Brady BS: Guns in the Workplace

At the time of this writing, the latest bit of Brady nail-biting is over Guns in the Workplace in Florida.

I was licensed to carry concealed in the State of Florida, and I know for a fact that you are already legally entitled to carry concealed in your place of business. As best as I can tell, Florida HB 129 was introduced to keep shop owners from discriminating against those who choose to exercise their 2A rights.

If these "non-partisan" (yeah, right. Everything about the Bradys reeks of Demorrhoids) people -CONTROL freaks actually READ the wording of the Bill, they would see that it has nothing to do with allowing guns inside the facilities. Shop owners retain that lawful right if they are so inclined (of course, establishments that prohibit concealed weapons must be clearly marked by the appropriate signage).

No, the bill only covers prohibition regarding the secure storage of a gun in one's own car in the parking lot!

But the Bradys prefer to get all hyperbolic. Almost to the point of misrepresenting the issue. Fighting the good fight? Hardly. Semantic sleight-of-hand and Rhetorical smoke and mirrors are the instruments found in the Propaganda Toolbox of every Demorrhoid.
