Got in an argument with a female ATF agent over this. Damn I love to argue. I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken. We actually became friends.
Florida has an "unoffical" two step law. If there is such a thing. In Florida you can carry a weapon legally without a permit. If it takes two steps to get at. In other words you can have it in a holster snapped under your seat or in the glove compartment. As long as it takes two steps to get at the cops won't bother you.
As I have a CCW for Florida. What I do if stopped is show the Law Enforcement Officers my hands and tell them I have a weapon in my vehicle.
They always thank me for doing that.
What needs to happen with these stupid Mother Fu#$%Kers who don't want your girlfriend, wife or yourself, to not have a weapon in your car.
Do like they are doing to us.
"EITHER PROVIDE SECURITY FOR EVERYONE LEAVING WORK LATE AT NIGHT"
"OR SUE THE BASTARDS IF THEY DON'T PROVIDE SECURITY"
That will shut these scum sucking mother friggers up.
