    I would consult a lawyer. I can't find anything in South Carolina statutes which states whether or not veterinarians are medical facilities or not. I don't understand the reason behind the firearms prohibition to begin with. I was thinking drugs, but that can't be it, because it does not appear as if pharmacies are off limits.

    Carrying on the job, without informing your employer, is a great way to get fired if discovered.

    If it is legal and not against their employment policy I don't think I could be fired.

    Berta, this is SC an at will employment state. They don't have to have a policy either verbal or written. They can just show you the door with the exit sign. And before you think about a lawsuit for wrongful termination, you better have plenty of cash to retain an labor law attorney. Last I checked most will grudgingly take the case with a modest 5,000.00 retainer.

    I'm not trying to be a hard ass, I just want to know the law. If the law says NO, then I won't. I didn't want to bring the subject up at the interview, I figured if it was against their policy they would tell me. Not looking for an argument, if it is not allowed then ok.

    In another vein, how about liquor stores? Most have vendors who sometimes provide free samples. So, they aren't really selling booze by the drink.

    Is the pup's name Rambo?

    Don't know about South Carolina, but liquor stores are perfectly legal in Washington.

    Exactly, NavyLCDR. I did not look up the statute for his state and assumed it was separate, as was mine. I was wrong, but that was why I included the warning at the bottom - NO ONE should use this or any forum as their legal source. Either research it yourself, consult an attorney, or make a call to your state's Attorney General.
