In the "You gotta be freaking kidding me" category

Florida lawmakers pass "take your guns to work" law

Its hair of the dog gun legislation.

Dozens of workplace shootings occur every year in the United States and studies have shown that job sites where guns are permitted are more likely to suffer workplace homicides than those where guns are prohibited.

Backers say the measure upholds the vision of the authors of the U.S. Constitution, who made the right to bear arms part of the Bill of Rights.

"The second thing they wrote about in that constitution was the right to bear arms," said Sen. Durell Peaden, a Republican from Crestview, Florida. "It was what was dear in their hearts."

Unless you work at nuclear power plants, prisons, schools [or at] companies whose business involves homeland security.

Cause you have the right to protect yourself, except where you pose an obvious threat.
