Old Dog, I agree with 99.9% of what you said. I have to take issue with the following, "Of course as a law abiding gun owner, I do hope the laws change to allow people the privilege of protecting themselves...". Self protection is not a privelege. It is a natural human response granted us by God and supported by our Declaration of Independence and indirectly, by our Constitution.

I've worked in banking most of my adult life and every bank I have ever worked for, banned weapons inside the actual bank or their affiliated offices. Fact is they even use to ban weapons in private vehicles but that rule was overturned by the courts. Though I may not always agree with company policies, I as an employee must comply with those policies or get fired, as this woman was. Sadly for her she presently doesn't have a leg to stand on as far as the law/courts goes. I also know firsthand that Wells Fargo does have a provision in their company rules/policies that states no weapons inside company property. Of course as a law abiding gun owner, I do hope the laws change to allow people the privilege of protecting themselves, especially in areas where there are no security guards or police present to protect workers and customers from the crazies of this world. Then the people of this country need to realize that so long as they keep electing those Demo-Rats into office, the same traitors who are so ready to violate our constitutional rights then things won't be changing for the better anytime soon.

Apologies witnessone. My mistake. I would have sworn that banks were on the list. I haven't read the statutes in a while and obviously need a refresher.

Truthseeker Could you list the Florida state law that states no conceal carry weapons in banks. No offense meant but I question that , unless it is a U S government Bank.

I used to work for Wells Fargo (under several different bank names), I carried, I just never let anyone know.

She is suing the wrong entity. State law says no guns in banks. Besides, Wells Fargo and others, should be allowed to set policy on their own property.

nativejax, does your employer allow you and others to carry in the office?

Crime is constantly on the rise, I guess the establishments that refuse to allow us to defend ourselves at work just don't give a rats ass about a 'human life', as long as they get a full days work out of everyone. UN American greedy pigs...
