    Your common sense and situational awareness should be primary weapon. Anything else is just a tool. Speaking of tools, I always keep a giant can of capsaicin bear spray (from Amazon) in each car. It's like a very hot pepper spray & can soak your target(s) up to 30 feet away. Just thinking outside of the box. It can be great for situations like yours and when you're in jogging, walking or riding a bike and want a quieter means for K9 repellant than always being guncentric.

    I would do this if you want a gun.

    . . . If legal under USC.

    Yes!!
    And maybe make sure those letters are addressed to Florida lawmakers?

    However, the downside is that if storage is mandated, it makes it easier to have "gun-free zones", and it potentially opens the door to registration, lists, confiscation, etc.., etc..
    Then there is the issue of how, (and how securely) your weapons are stored, even if the State were to enact minimum guidelines.

    Most people of these facilities are privately owned or operated... I don’t see that happening...

    If the seaports were worried about you being able to carry, they could have a small parking lot outside their secured area for you to park your vehicle. But I don’t see that happening either.

    Yeah, for the company I work for I’d say it’s a non issue. Shoot, they stopped giving us vouchers for required PPE, I highly doubt they’ll spend money on gun storage!

    It’s simple, don’t bring it to work. Get caught, get fired. That as far as they‘ve thought it through.

    You might want to talk to a nearby hotel, especially if you are a member of their rewards program. I would stop in at a nearby Hilton when I went to visit my son on base. They would let me store my firearm in a safe box there. It helps if you come in with a treat like cookies, donuts, or pizza when you first approach them. Go there during the day when the GM will usually be there, and ask to speak to him/ her. Most chains are very gracious to their members, especially if they are in the top tier.
