Florida NRA Will Once Again Block Any Attempt To Ban Guns In Hospitals | Florida currently bans guns in schools, stadiums, jails, government buildings, and every common-sense place — save hospitals. As it stands, “license hospitals and nursing homes” are currently not included in the safety zone provisions of the state’s concealed weapons law. This is not a mere oversight, as the South Florida Hospital and Healthcare Association has tried for years to include hospitals as a protected zone. However, the National Rifle Association lobby defeats it every year, stating that such legislation “panders to the anti-gun political agenda.” The NRA is making headway with the decidedly more right-wing legislature, scoring a new law that bans physicians from even asking patients whether they owned a firearm. Still, the hospital association notes that if lawmakers intended to ban guns from schools, failing to include hospitals was merely an oversight that “common sense” could fix. The NRA, however, is dead set on irrationality.
