I saw that, but I still don't like it. Just like going to a restaurant and having to leave it in the truck. When I was in WA I worked at a dealership where I was told it'd be best if I kept concealed carry in my truck. Not exactly where I'd like to leave my firearm unattended. As a young female that often took test drives alone with strangers in rural areas, I took my ccw along for my protection and I wasn't about to give that up because it might make someone uncomfortable if they knew. Seems to me it defeats the whole purpose.
But, in the big picture, its a good step in the right direction for FL.
Why is Texas always playing catchup with gun legislation?
That's a very good question.
After all Texas is big and wild (and flat) with 4x4s driven by cowboys and who love guns...so naturally, they just expect that guns roam free and open <sigh>
I know, I was just watching an episode of family guy where the Griffins seek refuge in Texas, Brian stops at a convenience store for a coke and is surprised when he is handed a free gun with his purchase as per Texan law (according to Seth Macfarlane). All I could think was "pfft... I wish"
Hell I knew bars in southeast asia that if you didn't have one, would loan you a gun when you went in. Some were in Saigon and one in Bangkok
