    Concealed Carry At Work Surprise Today.

    I looked at our corporate employee handbook online and it says nothing about CHL. Someone in my group took the class on Saturday and sent a note to HR today and asked them what our policy was on CHL at work. They wrote him back and called him and said that we do not have a policy against it..... and our building has no signage on it!

    While this thrills me, I think I would still rather leave the gun locked and hidden in the car in the parking lot just in case.

    But, this IS promissing.

    Nice to hear about a "friendly" company! As long as you feel safe inside its boundries, I wouldn't think leaving the gun in the car would be a problem.

    Put it on when you get ready in the morning and take it off when you go to bed.

    Sounds like HR gave you the thumbs up to carry at work to me. You'll be at a real disadvantage(or worse) if something happens and the weapon is in your car.

    Why do some people insist on ASKING for trouble?

    Hope your company stays on the right path.

    I think it depends on if the person in HR that was asked is pro gun or not. It may never escape his/her desk.

    Keep it on you all day. Numerous accounts of attacks in company parking lots walking to & from car ... what then? Not to mention the obvious "What if" shooting in the office. How frustrating would it be to need it at those times with it locked in your car? Most forum members with office jobs can't CC at work & wish they could, & here you are, able to but don't! Don't wanna be to hard on you, but ... WHAT THE **** ARE YOU THINKING!!

    PLEASE put it on & stay safe. Repeat after me ... ANYTIME, ANYPLACE, ANYBODY!

    Hope your HR inquiry didn't throw up a "red flag" that will be addressed at the next board meeting, resulting in new anti CC policies in the near future. If my employee manual has zero mention of firearms, no legally posted signs, work in a legal facility (ie. not school, Post Office, courthouse, etc.), & I haven't received any UNPROVOKED verbal instruction from a superior on the matter, then I'm CC'ing & not asking / not telling. Concealed means concealed.
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!

    depends on the company, how sharp the lawers are on civil law, etc.........I'd be on pins and needles.

    I agree... why on earth would anyone want their gun with them when a disgruntled worker comes for a killing spree. Much better to leave it in the car so you can find it gone at the end of the day when someone broke into your car looking for checkbooks, cash, GPS, and CD's.

    Ok, sarcasm off! Just giving you some food for thought and a different perspective.

    Btw... now that someone spilled the beans... look for a policy change in the near future. Sheesh... some people boggle the mind.

    We just past a law that we can have guns in our vehicles at work, but a friend just got this memo:

    Gov. Mitch Daniels recently signed into law legislation that allows employees to keep guns in locked vehicles even if those vehicles are parked on company property. That law takes effect on July 1, 2010.

    Cummins’ policy prohibits employees from bringing guns onto all Company property – and it remains in effect. We are in the process of reviewing the applicability of the law to each Cummins' facility. Until further notice, Cummins employees are not permitted to bring firearms onto any Company property, which includes vehicles in the parking lot.
