ABSTRACT
The author comments on a Florida law prohibiting employers from banning guns locked in employees' vehicles in employer's parking lots. Employer groups, risk managers and safety organizations oppose the law, saying it could increase workplace violence. The National Rifle Association says employers should not be able to micromanage the lawful contents of privately owned vehicles, even on a business' property. It is argued that personal responsibility is the only way to ensure public safety.
