Thread: How many of you work at a job at says no weapons on it's grounds?

  1. #41
    The company I work for has a "no weapons on premises" policy, however this is against Florida law. Florida law as of April 11th last year says it is legal as both an employee or customer to have your firearm locked away "in the parking area" of the facility as long as it stays within the other state guidelines (school zones, etc). Also no areas where explosives or mass combustibles are stored.

    Either way, I don't care. I carry at work anyway because guess what? I work at a convenience store in an economically depressed area where alcoholism dominates. I see crime every day and will not disarm myself for a $9/hr job.

    I know your pain. Where I work (a casino) the law says that I can not carry inside. The law does say that I can have my gun in my car in the parking lot, as long as I don't brandish it. Unfortunately, according to the company handbook, just having my gun in my car, whether I'm in it or not, makes me a violent person, and subject to immediate termination. I leave it in my car anyway, and then worry, the rest of my shift, about someone breaking into my car and stealing it.

    Hear, hear. There is absolutely nothing dishonorable about any honest job. Your family should count their lucky stars to have someone like you in their corner.

    Because so many McDonalds get jacked up, I would consider carrying anyway. When I worked at a "no carry" job, I kept a small "J" frame in my front pocket, and no one was the wiser. You may not be able to pack big heat, but five shots of .357 is still considerable.

    My company forbids firearms on company property, even in my car. It is illegal under MN law, I'm working to get it changed.

    In SC - my company also forbids firearms in the car on company property. It is not illegal, but this is a free-will-employer state. So if they found out, I could be fired. Luckily I work 8-5 so I'm not concerned. I only plan on carrying after work and on weekends. I'm not worried someone would find out I have my gun in the truck...I'm more concerned about the possibility of someone breaking in my truck and using my gun in a crime than the possibility of me needing my weapon while going to/from work.

    But if it were McD's, graveyard shift... I'd carry. Just be very concealed. The worst that happens is you have to use it, save the store some money on being robbed, they might make you pay for "clean-up", and get fired. Much better than dead.

    As in My previous post, not allowed on Company property. The parking lot is leased which makes it legal for me to keep in My vehicle. Since I have checked and got answers on this great forum, I have to keep both firearm and ammo separate in vehicle (I work in MA.). Honestly, it is a real pain in the ass when I get here at work........unload the firearm, open two safes, put firearm and ammo in them and lock them up. Time to leave work, unlock both, load firearm, mount on My waist standing outside the vehicle because I cannot do it while sitting. But what I do now is, I wear a NAA 22LR 5 shot that has the clip, and wear it into work which is concealed and no one knows. Yes, I know I'm going from a 9mm to a 22LR. While I'm thinking of it, I should just find a more comfortable holster for IWB and try wearing the 9mm at work......for now. We'll see.
    (All the above are MY opinions/suggestions ONLY....AND, I like to bust ball's, it's called having a sense of humor. In other words, no intent to offend anyone, so get over it)

  8. Since you've made the decision to carry...

    Sambo, good for you. Somehow we have to make employers and politicians understand that our right to defense of self goes with us everywhere we go. We don't check that right at the door to a fast food chain, a classroom, or a state line, and it's not something employers or politicians have any business limiting arbitrarily. The USSC recently found, as one of the factual foundations for their decision in the Heller case, that handguns are the overwhelming choice of Americans for self-protection.

    Anyway, I'm sure i speak for all in saying we hope your luck turns and you get back to a better job right away. My hat is off to you for doing whatever it takes to provide for your family. A lot of the younger generation could (and should) learn from your example. Keep the faith.

    I don't know if that is entirely true.

    Could be true for CC, definately NOT true for ALL other issues.

  10. I can legally step out behind the building I work in and fire my gun. It may irritate my boss, so I don't. Living and working outside the city limits has it's advantages.

    Some states over ride that saying your car is your property and that trumps there parking lot as long as you don't take it out of your car.
