Indiana Man Fired For Being A Gun Owner

An Indiana man was fired from his job simply because he owned a gun, despite the fact that he never brought the gun to work. Now he is suing the company that employed him because he claims the firing was illegal.

Nino Ferlaino had worked as a landscaper at Lakes of The Four Seasons gated community for 21 years when his supervisor found out that he was a gun owner. The supervisor told the Property Owners Association, who requested that he be fired.

Ferlaino’s attorney says that the association violated Indiana’s “take your gun to work” law because it required him to disclose information about gun ownership —and then fired him when they didn’t like the answer.

Ferlaino is seeking punitive damages along with other expenses.
