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

    Like the title says how many of you work at a job that says you cant have weapons on it;s grounds? After being layed off i got a short term job till something better come along at the golden arch( not my first pick but it;s something to support the family) They say you cant have weapons on it's grounds, no pocket knifes,guns,tanks and so on. I will be working the night shift i will be getting out at 4am what i had planned on doing was. Bring a backpack to work leaving it in "MY CAR" in it would be a change of clothing ( my carry clothes) and my holster,gun,mags,mag holder,flashlight, and my spring assisted knife and some other stuff. After my shift i would get it change and be on my way. The way i see it is the second i clock out i'm no longer on company time i'm on my time and company rules do not apply to me. Yes i would still be company grounds. They have no right to search my person or my car. Just like if it's my day off and i go to the store to get something to eat and i'm carrying they cant fire me for not following company rules can they? I would so no as i'm on my time and not on the clock getting paid. What do you do/what would you do if you worked at a place with a rule like this? Now from what they told me you are locked in at night and can not go outside ( they don't want you to get mugged lol). Me i feel i will be fine doing what i have said and also plan on having a pocket knife on me in my pocket ( again thats on my person and in a pocket no one can see it).

    THEY MAY TAKE OUR LIVES BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM!!!!!

    I am not sure about the laws where you are located.... I am in TN - and we have a Handgun Carry Permit - we can open or conceal carry. But if we carry on grounds that are posted, even if it is in our cars in the parking lot - we can risk losing our HCP FOREVER. I do not carry if I know that I am going to be somewhere that is postedor that is a GUN FREE ZONE.... I carry everyday and I will do nothing that will risk me from that right. My employer allows me to open carry in the office - and I do.
    You might want to check into the laws of the state - are you going to lose your right to carry.
    I am completely with you on the reason..... but I would hate to see you lose the right to protect yourself/your family.

    Let me get this straight. You get off at 4 am, walk out to your car, change into your carry clothes, put on your holster, gun, mags, flashlight, switchblade etc. all to drive home!!!!! May I ask where you work and what kind of territory you drive home through.

    Second, when you clocked out you are still on their property until you drive off.You may be on your own time but you are still in their parking lot and the rules still apply. Whether the rules are legal or not and whether they can search is a different question but having clocked out doesn't mean a lot.

    As for carrying the pocket knife doesn't matter one way or another but don't think that because you keep it in your pocket that they won't find out. I don't know what the rules are about pocket knives but it's your decision.

    I work at a college in New York State. Just having a gun in my car on the grounds of an educational institution is a felony. It sucks.

    Yes and like i said we have some other 24 hour stores in town and i may do my shopping. Like i said it's a job just to make money nothing i would be heart broken over losing. Yes I would put all that on it's your EDC or EDCG ( Every Day Carry or Every Day Carry Gear what ever one you want to call it). Why have a gun and permit to carry if you leave it at home for work? That could be the one time you need it. I live in a small town but more and more thugs and drug dealing TRASH are moving up from NY,MA,CT,NJ and so on. I do not carry a switch blade you can not have that stlye of knife unless you are ( active duty Military,police,Emt or Fire). It's a spring assisted knife not a AUTO knife. As for the parking lot it's a huge lot with other stores and i'm sure they do not own the whole thing. So i can just park in another space not owned by them. The other stores in the lot are closed at night so it would be no problem and i know the manager at one of them. So i could ask them ( before someone posts something about not parking in other stores spaces).

    Sorry if you made you think I'M talking about a gun free zone or a posted zone. It's not a gun free zone or a posted zone it's just a company rule in the books THE GROUNDS ARE NOT POSTED!! Even if it was i would just park across the street with the gun in the car.

    Nothing in the policy about firearms where I work. "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

    I understand that it is a company rule, the rules here in TN are that - if the company, stated in their hand book or you are told in an orientation, or even informally that we can not carry - even if posted on the doors of the establishment, here that includes our car if parked in that company parking lot... I understand that you will get permission to park elsewhere... I am not in any way trying to cause you grief or give you a hard time... I just know here in TN if they (Company) says - no guns allowed - and we do, either on our person or in the car - we could risk losing our HCP - PERIOD. No questions asked...
    It seems that it is clearly your decision, and since I do not know the laws of where you are located, I can only quote the rules that apply to me and the state that I reside.
