    I understand the need for safety. You could lose your job. You have to weigh the pros and cons. If I had a single employee working nights I wouldn't stop him from carrying his gun.

Have to admit, though, that we have a president who doesn't follow the rules either, so maybe it's acceptable nowadays or I'm just getting old.

    First I want to clarify that I'm not necessarily saying don't do it. I'm saying think it all the way through before you do.

    That said, given the way you present yourself here I doubt you'll go one week before somebody knows
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    I'm all for private property rights, but in your place I would probably carry. Of course we must be honest that we are compromising ourselves in some ways by doing so - hard to be a hardcore believe in rights and then violate other's rights.

    For folks like me - it complicates the hell out of this when your employer has its own police force so even a cursory stop could lead to exposure of a policy violation.

    4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
    Lest you also be like him.
    5 Answer a fool according to his folly,
    Lest he be wise in his own eyes.

    Here's one that describes you.

    Screw your employer. Who cares if it's not your property, or that the person your disrespecting provides a cash flow to take care of you and your family. They didn't build their business anyways, do whatever you want, this is 'merica, only your Rights matter. :-D

    Hate to say it, but as an employer, I disagree. If you want to break the rules as set up you should be fired. Instead work with the owner to sway him to see the lite of your ways. I agree you should be allowed to carry in this situation, but not if your employer says no: you are an employee and he is named the boss for a reason.

    You could approach them with the concept that if they do not allow you to carry, they will be held responsible for your safety. Which in essence is what they are doing. Worked for me at one place I worked.
