Because you're reading it wrong.

Let's break it into separate sentences:

Pretty clear, right? Except for the word premises, which is defined as building and land together. But let's just assume for the moment that they're referring to the building, and this is because of the second part:
"including property owned or leased by Acme, unless otherwise expressly permitted by operative state or local law."
Since they went to great lengths to separate "premises" from "property owned or leased" I'm assuming that they're now referring to everything surrounding the building, which could be grass, parking lots, access paths, etc.
In this case they're referring to recent laws in other states that allow an employee to keep a weapon locked in their vehicle. IF there is an operative AZ state law that allows an employee to keep said weapon in their vehicle, then company policy has to allow that.
As I said, it's poorly worded and confusing, hence all the interpretations.
And if you don't believe my interpretation, then ask your favorite lawyer for his/her take.

The way I read that was:

2-UNLESS...they had a permit from the state that allows one to carry...Carry laws do not specify where one can carry, only where one CAN NOT carry...so in your reading of the part about "expressly permitted by state law" is specious at best. One SHOULD NOT need a lawyer to read a stinkin' public sign...
3-If you know something I don't know about the policy, I don't see a reference to anything about other state's laws...I'm taking the policy as it is (poorly) written...at face value, thus, that is why I'm still on the side he can carry. I do not see where any other AZ law or other laws are referenced or inferred.

They don't want guns on their property, unless state law says they can't forbid it. Pretty simple.

I think you and I are going to have to agree to disagree.

I know that a lot people don't want to hear about our Governor; Jan Brewer, here it goes anyway.
Jan Brewer recently signed a bill that basically said an employer cannot forbid an employee from having a weapon in a locked vehicle parked in a company parking lot.
I know the parking lot is not the work place and I am not a lawyer, I am just trying to shed a little light on the subject.
Don't tread on me or mine.
