Hope this happens in Utah. Then we can pretty much carry wherever, except federal buildings and secure areas. This was passed in Florida.
Guns at work
Guns at work
I work for a subsidary of H&R Block(currently looking for a new job), and they have a no gun policy. I most likely will keep it in my car or deep conceal. If I do keep it in my car is there any risk of a discharge with the hot summer heat?GeneticsDave said:Where do you work (if you can tell us)? Is there an option to follow the don't ask, don't tell theory and carry anyways?
I think the same would be fore someone who is renting. When the landlord says that they don't allow weapons or guns on their property and have it stated in the lease, you sign the lease, but is that going to stop me from having a gun in my apartment? NO!! I can always find somewhere else to live, and like Thomas said I can find a new job. There are no legal ramifications on carrying a gun when it is against a policy of a business or property owner. I have never had a job where they have searched through my desk or car even though the policy might state that. I think that if you are at that point in your job it's time to look for a new job anyways. If I were a business owner I would base my policy on the state laws. You will be backed up much more when problems arise. Could you refuse service to someone because of their race, maybe, but BIG problems would arise. Where you own property that invites the public you must welcome all types of people who will obey the law on your property. People are more familiar with laws than policies. I think the word 'Policy' has a negative conotation for businesses. You try and return something and they say, "No, it is our policy." It really ticks off the customer. I do think that policies have their place, but not when they conflict with law. Restricting someones rights on your property is asking for trouble. Now, when someone breaks the law, not your policy, then you call the police and police issue a trespass and a citation for the crime that was committed and then you can get rid of the customer/employee. It looks a whole lot better. In Utah though, you need no reason to fire an employee, which is not good in most cases. Like some other threads that talk about business signs, maybe the law should state that illegal weapons will not be allowed in cars or on the property. That would make it legal for CFP holder to legally posses his weapon in his car.UtahCFP said:When you park in a store's parking lot, do you feel they have the right to search your car? If they can specify that normally legal items may not be brought on their property, then there is an implied ability to verify those items are not present.
