We are currently not protected by state law from being fired by our private company if we are found to have a gun in our vehicle. Many companies do have and enforce such a policy that disarms their employees from their own front doors, all throughout the drive to work, throughout the workday, and back to their own front doors again. Of course, these same companies do not provide real physical security in their own workplaces, let alone during your commute, so these are unconscionable policies.
AOL in Ogden fired two employees who were seen on security cameras to be transferring their guns from one car to another to go to the range after work. That resulted in a lawsuit which the fired employees lost. That went all the way to the Utah Supreme Court, where they still lost. We all lost that day.
I'm sure that this is why a bill is currently before the Utah legislature that would protect employees who keep self-defense firearms in their own cars in the company parking lot. Let's pray that it passes. Not only that, let's urge our own legislators to support it.
BTW, buck50, please take a moment to post a thread in the Introduce Yourself
forum so that we can welcome you to our forum properly. That's one of the forum rules.
