Default Florida-Take your gun to work !!

the gun mentality of the US gets even more scary as Florida is about to pass a bill to allow you to take your gun to work !-you can't bring it into the building but can have it in the car.

If it wasn't so scary, id be laughing .....

Can't you already do that if your work doesn't prohibit firearms on the premises?

I think that's the point of the legislation - that companies wouldn't be able to prohibit staff members to take guns to work. It would be legal to say what color t-shirt you wear and what kind of facial hair you are allowed, but not whether you're allowed to bring a Desert Eagle into work.

This is flucking scary - aren't there enough ways already for nutters to get their hands on guns?

This way of disposing faulty equipment is much more satisfying.

If it happens to be also Casual Friday, you will be allowed to conceal it too.

Casual Friday is when you take the .38 with the rubber grips instead of the .45 with Mother of Pearl...
