State Rep. Mary Brandenburg took aim at Florida’s new guns-at-work law. “It’s beyond belief to think it’s essential to have guns at work,” she said after the bill passed the Legislature on a largely party-line vote, 72-42. “This was the most boneheaded bill we’ll pass this session.”

Florida became the fifth state to pass guns-at-work legislation this spring. The law guarantees employees the right to bring guns onto company property as long as they have permits and leave the guns locked in their cars.

Certain workplaces, such as nuclear power plants, public hospitals, schools and jails, can still ban guns.

Business groups, which mounted fierce opposition to the bill in the name of property rights, accused the Legislature of caving to the gun lobby’s “constant political threats.”
