The article quotes a few pro- and anti-guns-at-work folks, but I especially love this rationale:
Jay Dewing, owner of Dewing's Fly and Gun Shop in West Palm Beach, said the bill passed should have gone further, and that being able to have a gun in one's car isn't enough.
"Let's say I'm in the mall and there's a mall shooting," he said. "The only reason I see to have [a gun] there is for moments like those and you won't have it."
Because we have, like, tons of mall shootings here in Florida. Oh wait, while it's not a non-zero number, we have so few mall shootings here that we're reduced to reporting on kids firing their Tasers and apparently heaving cinder blocks at each other. Not that we shouldn't be doing something about kids with Tasers, but arming Jack Bauer wannabes isn't going to fix that problem.
Let's just step inside Dewing's fantasy for a moment and say you do have a gun and a permit and job at a mall, do you shoot the shooter?
