    Only place it was posted was in he employee handbook. I drove a heavy haul truck. My usual gross weight was right around 100,000 pounds. Sometimes my loads were worth over a million and I have hauled truckloads of laptops and loads of liquor. I carried when the law allowed.

    Let's see, the rules at work say employeess can't carry a firearm while on duty. There are reasons for this. Probably liability. IMO the company would be entirely justified in terminating someone who cannot follow simple direction. If they can't be trusted to follow a simple rule, how can they be trusted at all? I wouldn't want anyone I can't trust to work with me.
    Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia...Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

    I was prepared for that and would not have had a gripe if they fired me. I thought my life was more valuable than my job. Now I am retired. My job is on the farm and I still carry.

    IMHO only:
    ...If I worked for you you'd never know I carry. (A former employer of 8 yrs didn't) If I needed the gun to save my life at work then at least I'd be alive afterward to be yelled at by you and fired, and prosecuted by the DA if I broke any laws. That's a better option than following your rules or laws and getting killed. That is what it is despite any employers wishes or demands to the contrary. This is only my .02.

    If the company cant be trusted to allow an employee to carry something that may save their (and others lives) then THEY cant be trusted in anything else either......

    Make sense to me....and they are probably Liberal Cultist Democrats supporters as well.

    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?"
    As for the 'bad area', carry the gun and keep you lips sealed. As for bears, I know of no adequate handguns for bears that could be conveniently be carried concealed.
