    i think that is how it is here in texas since they recently changed the law stating that your vehicle is an extension of your home, someone correct me if im wrong. last i heard they were working on it but i dunno if it passed or not. but i have been carrying my .40 cal in my vehicle for months already lol, that would suck if they can fire me for it, especially since they send us out to some of the most desolate places to care for patients, lol. out here there are too many places that our cell phones won't work to call for help if TSHTF.

    Boss said it was okay to set up targets and shoot there. He even wants to try out his 9mm.
    So I guess weapons are okay at my job!

    I work in a Casino. In my state it is illegal to carry on a riverboat gaming vessel, so I suppose you can add me to the list of "unable to carry at work".

    My company policy forbid it. I forwarded the corporate counsel a copy of the state statute that says employers cannot ban legal possession of a firearm in personal vehicles in a company parking lot. He agreed that the law triggered an exemption in the policy so I can have one in certain parking lots.

    My 2 Cents. Concealed carry does not mean to shout it from the roof tops that you carry. I am a 5 foot, 100 lb 62 year old woman. I wear long skirts, high neck shirts and don't look very intimidating. Well my hair is still dark red.

    So unless I needed my "mouse" for some reason nobody needs to know or should know I am armed. End of discussion as far as I am concerned. This is were the don't ask and don't tell rule should be followed at all times.

    Working for the Federal Gov't

    I work at a VA hospital where it has always been policy that no one is to bring firearms onto hospital property unless they are LEO's, then they have to store their weapons unless they are working a case. Firearms are not even allowed to be kept inside one's vehicles. Early last year there was an ongoing conflict at the hospital between two male employees over one female employee. This situation became worse over time until one night things turned deadly. Each male employee got into their cars, one had the female with him, and left VA property when their shift ended at midnight. They made it a few blocks before a running gunfight ensued from car to car as they were going down the street. One person was hit and crashed his car. The other employee then stopped and the gunfight continued. It ended up with one guy being shot to death, the woman hiding behind some bushes beside the road, scared but unhurt, and the other male unhurt. The trial is still pending. The VA sent out MEMO's after this incident as a reminder about the firearms directives. Our VA hospital is smack in the middle of one of the more nasty parts of town. There is a huge state funded housing complex directly across the street from the hospital. To my personal knowledge the hospital has been shot at and hit 3 times in the past. One bullet went through the window of a patients room and impacted into the wall near the patient but no one was hurt. Another more recent shooting a bullet went through the window in the room where a patient was undergoing a sleep study test. Again no one was hurt, neither the patient or the tech doing the test. On each New Years night the main gate to the VA is closed off and the employee's getting off work at midnight are directeded out the back gate due to all the gunfire coming from the housing project. For me to get home from the hospital I have to pass through this ghetto area. I have never been personally shot at while leaving workt but each night when I leave the hospital grounds I feel like I'm in someone's crosshairs. My having a firearm on hospital property I would be comitting a Federal Crime and if caught would lose my job and go to jail.

    What does "I live in Jersey" have to do with my post - if anything. Just curious.

    Some here have mentioned to never tell anyone that you carry etc.... this is the best advise you can take. At the job I just got laid off from we weren't allowed to carry on their property. A friend from work and I took our CCW class together. He like a moron came to work the next day and blabbed to EVERYONE that we had CCWs. Contrary to what the instructors advised about carrying, the company now knew that we were packing. I love this guy as a friend but he obviously can't keep a secret. The plot thickens. Next a guy we worked with had gotten into a legal problem involving a drunken attempt of arson of a alleged drug dealer's house. I never said anything bad about the guy but I did say "If we read in the paper of it happening elsewhere that they should hang him." Of course he hears this and threatens to have me arrested for frightening him. I would have been in some doo doo. Next the boss is dead set against guns and over the course of several years had been trying desperately to get rid of me. it took me forever to get him to lie me and be on my side for a change. When the company sold off our unit, the boss even gave me his home phone and said I could use him as reference.
    And yes I do and always have kept my gun in the car at work. Trust no one and tell no one. By the way it is legal in Michigan to keep it in your car no matter what the company says. There are exceptions like post offices etc...
