Florida gun lobby takes on business

A Lakeland Ledger editorial:

If the National Rifle Association told Florida lawmakers to squat on their haunches and bark like dogs, a chorus of eager howls would echo from the House to the Senate.

No demand by chief NRA Tallahassee lobbyist Marion Hammer -- a.k.a. She Who Must Be Obeyed -- is too outrageous; from holding police officers criminally liable for the crime of keeping gun ownership records to exempting shooting ranges from water pollution laws.

Now Hammer wants to make it a felony for employers to tell their workers that they cannot keep guns in their cars out in the company parking lot.

Imagine when police haul Disney's CEO out of the Magic Kingdom in handcuffs for violating the Second Amendment rights of the guy in the Goofy suit.
