Introduced by Rep. Paul Opsommer (R) on October 12, 2011, to establish that residents who legally own a firearm have a right to transport it in their vehicle, and prohibit a business, commercial enterprise, employer, or state agency from prohibiting a person who lawfully possesses a firearm from transporting or storing the gun or ammunition in a locked and privately owned motor vehicle that is parked in a parking lot, parking garage, or other designated area. The bill would extend immunity from liability to these establishments for another person’s misuse of these firearms.
Referred to the House Judiciary Committee on October 12, 2011.
Re: 2011 House Bill 5064 (Prohibit banning legal firearms in parked cars ) by egorhythmia on June 24, 2012 My friend works at an auto shop changing tires, Suspension Lift Kits, windshields and other goodies and he once found a gun there. He called the police and in the end everything was fine after the identification and all that. I think it's stupid to ban legal fire arms in vehicles just because the government (in secret) wants people to have less firearms.
Re: 2011 House Bill 5064 (Prohibit banning legal firearms in parked cars ) by crisscross on February 26, 2012 I`m not really sure where is this coming from. I think I heard about an accident in a parking lot once, due to a firearm left in the car, that has accidentally released a bullet by itself. No victims, but serious complications that left the insurance companies cover for some airtex fuel pumps and some further damage, luckily not too big. I assume these things can`t be entirely controlled, the point is to find a way of settling expertise on the firearms.

I support this legislation. It is ridiculous to think that an employee that is going to shoot a fellow co-worker would care that he will lose his job because of the current ban.
