Contact your legislators and urge them to pass a clean bill – no poison amendments. Yesterday, the Indy Chamber of Commerce distributed a propaganda flier to legislators filled with misinformation. The real facts, not the fabricated garbage are here:
1. Federal Court: Northern District Court of Florida upheld Florida Parking Lots for employees; denied the Florida Retail Federation
2. Federal Appellate Court: US Court of Appeals – 10th Circuit ruled against Conoco Phillips in Oklahoma’s Parking Lot bill
3. U.S. Department of Labor confirmed that allowing employees to store lawful firearms in locked vehicles do not add to workplace violence or violate OSHA standards
“Supporters of the bill who favor placing gun rights above the rights of property owners rely on a questionable understanding of Second Amendment rights for legitimacy. Often the NRA and its supporters will argue that gun ownership is an inalienable right provided for by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. That is not consistent with the text of the amendment nor with the courts that have interpreted it.” –Georgia Traditional Manufacturers Association, in a memo circulated to Georgia legislators.
In an attempt to defeat the Parking Lot bill in the Florida legislature, the Florida Retail Federation hired a lobbyist who had previously been the Southeast Regional Director for the Brady Campaign and the Million Mom March.
