    I have to say it depends. I don't carry at work namely because I can not legally carry in that state. I live in a great state and work in a horrible state and do not have the permit for my work state.

    I have a desk job and everyone is required to badge in. Is it secure? No! There is safety on duty but they also do not carry. If something bad happened, there are multiple ways to escape and enough cubes to hide in and move through.

    If you have a public facing job (like walgreens) it might be worth it, but depending if its a desk job in a cube farm, it might not be worth it.

  3. Sux for you in the state y r in. My state is a shall issue,MN, but my thought on it is need and don't have, yet have and don't need.

  4. Read the past thread, I'm.a garbage man. And I do work in some shady areas.

    Personally I stay well clear of carrying at work. My company has the signs on the doors and in my State they carry the weight of the law. If anybody found out I was carrying at work I would defintely be fired, no question about it.

    If I get gunned down at work my wife gets the life insurance money - if I get fired we all get nothing. And I have a pretty good job right now.

    Seriously, for me the balance between risk of needing it at work and risk if discovered is just very unfavorable but to each his own.

    I'm in MN and work for a company that is nation wide with a no firearms policy. The question that I am asking (I do work three days a week where it is either a really bad area or bears) is "what's more important, my job or my life?"
    If you cannot answer that then I would recommend you do NOT carry a gun let alone even own one. Now, if you are asking that question just to start a conversation (and you do think your life is much more important than a job of course) then please understand my answer to your (then) rhetorical question comes with all due respect.

    So my answer is: DELETED ...I took pity on the poor OP'er.

    So your wife would rather have the money than you? Your life is worth less to her than the insurance money in your mind? ...Just ask'n.

    I carried on the job. It was against company policy but I broke no laws. No one in management ever found out but I did know of at least five others who carried every day. I was nearing retirement and the loss of the job would not have been convenient but neither would it have been the end of the world.

    In the end the decision is all yours. If it bothers you then start looking for other work.

    In my state if you carry where it is posted not to you are breaking the law although I don't believe just breaking company policy would violate the law if it is not posted.
    The big issue is the liability you are exposing you employer to. It may not be completely his choice. His liability insurance carrier may not let him allow employee CC. If he gets sued because you had to protect yourself the money will come out of his pocket. Why should he have to take that risk when he explicitly said don't do it. Either don't carry, change jobs, or try to get the rules changed but don't decide to expose him to added financial liability just because you choose not to respect his rules.

    As an Underwriter by trade, the only time guns come up is on inspection when there is one under the counter or otherwise unattended. People carrying a weapon NEVER comes up. Unless the owner has a BIG mouth. As Gump said, "Stupid is as stupid does.) Once I know about it, I have to do something about it as the company dictates.

    Now national companies are going to have loss control professionals, attorneys, and others pressuring them and advising about carrying at work. Those are the ones who usually have the most rules. And, their insurance companies MAY direct them of same just because of the numbers involved.
