Businesses may not usurp constitutional rights


"The right to keep and bear arms is clearly protected by both the U.S. Constitution and the Florida Constitution. "Bear" means transport and "keep" means you can take it with you. Further, the Florida Constitution specifically makes it clear that the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense is pre-eminent."

"Expecting armed robbers and other "uninvited guests" to obey a "gun free zone" is idiocy. Criminals don't obey the law — that's what makes them criminals.

Let's be clear. NRA believes in private property rights, but corporate property interests don't override the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens. Owning property doesn't make one an emperor.

After all, civil rights laws, zoning laws, safety inspections and fire codes all supersede property rights. Workers should not have to choose between protecting themselves and following a thoughtless workplace policy."
