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.

well atleast it's a step in the right direction. Like with city/state employees, who are not allowed to have a weapon in their vehicle, leaving them completely open when traveling to and from work.


Why is Texas always playing catchup with gun legislation?

That's a very good question.

I had a gentleman see the opencarry.org link in my leather worker forum. He sent me a PM and part of what he said was he was surprised to see that TX was not OC. I think that can be credited to the overall image non-Texans equate with Texas. 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> :o

I would like to see TX set the pace for a change. Instead of giving a tool too much credit, they need to start giving hard-working, honest, good people the credit they've earned.

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"

Although next to Alaska, theres not many laws we can set to raise the bar. But I'm no lawyer and new to this gun legislation thing so maybe someone has some radical freedom oriented law proposition I've yet to hear about.

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

I work for the knee-jerk federal gov't so I can't even have one in my vehicle when at work. Everybody knows when I'm going hunting because I have to park off property.

I work in a Foreign Trade Zone. So I am not allowed to defend myself at work, only criminals can have a gun there, along with horrible rent-a-cop security guards that can't hit the broad side of a barn
