    Postak Florida: Fired worker's suit tests new concealed arms law

    Packing heat got Steven Collazo sacked. The Boca Raton man now is suing his former employer, the Florida subsidiary of a national funeral home company, claiming his firing last month violated a new state law that allows people with concealed weapons permits to have their firearms locked in their cars on workplace property.

    Post This case was due to get tested.

    Interesting cause if you live in Florida it is legal to have a weapon in your personal vehicle. I actually got into an argument with an ATF agent over just this issue.
    She later E-Mailed me and admitted I was correct. Which I thought was pretty nice of her.
    If you do not have a Concealed weapons permit, the weapon must be not readily accessible. In a glove compartment, holster snapped, in a closed case etc.
    Myself and a friend took off on our Harley's at a rather rapid pace. A Florida State Trooper was behind us, no we did not see him.
    Upon pulling us over I immediately told him I had a loaded weapon in my carry bag on the bike. I had to access it to get to my reg. and license.
    He claimed I had a CCW and by law. the weapon was supposed to be on my person and not in the bag.
    With an impending ticket I said "yes sir I will remember that." No ticket was written and the irony is we started talking guns.
    Interesting he works the local gun shows and I corrected him on the carry law when I saw him there. He is a serious bike builder and we have since become friends.
    Where I am going with this is businesses, law enforcement, and the general public, is getting ever more confused on the new gun laws.
    Sad these cases have to end up in court, spending money to clarify the ever changing laws.
