Big GOP Guns

NRA lobbyist (goota love the name) Marion Hammer attempted to pass a law that would allow gun owners to bring their firearms to work. The business community beat the NRA. The Florida legislature is going through their version of GroundHog Day. The Florida House's new bill would once again allow gun owners to bring weapons to work. The Florida Chamber of Commerce is posed to fight the bill.

What's interesting is conservative ideals work better on the stump than in actual practice. Republicans are getting pressure from the gun and business lobbies that they are slaves to. Their wonderful coalition splinters when they attempt to legislate all the stupid ideas they have been promising for years. The bill will fail again, but it be fun watching the Florida GOP try to figure out which ass needs more kissing.
