Oelrich defends trespass bill

The National Rifle Association says that a law proposed by Sen. Steve Oelrich, R-Gainesville, to give business owners the right to kick people off their property as they see fit is really aimed at gun owners.

"Some people see it as a petition law. Others see it as gun control," said Marion Hammer, a spokeswoman for the association. "This is clearly targeted at guns."

Oelrich, whose bill was postponed today when the Commerce meeting ran out time, said it isn't a conspiracy - and the bill's only purpose is to protect business owners and consumers from people passing out fliers, surveys and the like. He said he would offer amendments, if necessary.
