HB 1400 -- Business Premises Safety Act

Sponsor:  Cox

This bill establishes the Business Premises Safety Act which
prohibits business owners and operators from restricting any
person from lawfully possessing a firearm in a motor vehicle
except in a vehicle owned or leased by the business.  Business
owners, operators, merchants, and shopkeepers do not have a duty
to guard against the criminal act of a third party unless they
know or have reason to know that the acts are occurring or are
about to occur that pose imminent injury to a person or that the
same criminal acts have occurred on the premises within the prior
24 months and is likely to occur again.  In either case, it will
be their duty to use reasonable care to protect against the acts.
An owner or operator of a business will not be liable for any
injury or damage resulting from compliance with these provisions.
