ORLANDO, Fla. – Orange County Sheriff John Mina on Monday joined two Florida lawmakers who are pushing to keep guns more secure.

State Sen. Victor Torres and State Rep. Joy Goff-Marcil have filed bills that would require any business that sells guns to keep them secure during non-business hours.

According to the bills, stores would either have to use a cable to keep guns in place or lock them in a cabinet or safe.

Mina said the new law is needed because burglars are able to quickly steal guns.

Correction:News 6 initially reported that the bill required guns to be secured during business hours.
