Sign the company policy and not carry as they wish.
Sign the company policy and carry anyway.
Sign the company policy and not carry but try to get it changed when you get the job.
I pray some of the posts on this thread are simply trolls. If not, it's pretty scary. Some imply I should live in a single-wide and sell birdhouses from my drivway rather than go unarmed anywhere. That's just nuts.
Do you tell your kids they shouldn't attend university because they can't carry there?
Others would have you believe a loaded pistol is like a talisman - guaranteed to preserve your life in any and all situtations.
Most people live to a ripe, old age without ever needing to use a handgun.
Please tell me these were troll posts. Please. Someone.

Seriously, you knew that right?
Obviously there is no way "ALWAYS" can be absolute.
(Oh yeah, that applies to "NEVER" as well.) SHEESH!
ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

Again, how is this statement
Invalidated by the fact that a majority of respondants to this thread agree W/ it?I’m sorry but I find a huge disconnect between all of that and deliberately lying to my employer. You knew when you accepted the job, that one of the conditions was no carry. If you signed that paper knowing you had no intention of following it That's lying.
In Louisiana, those that carry in their vehicles and park in a private parking lot are protected by law, as long as that parking lot is not fenced in. In other words, if the parking lot is publicly accessible, you can legally keep a firearm in your vehicle same as if in your home. I have actually seen people terminated for carrying in their vehicles, only to have lawsuits ruled in their favor.

It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.
I didn't conceal carry until long after I retired. However, the company where I worked had a "no guns on company property" policy. During deer hunting season, most hunters who worked there ignored this. No one flaunted their guns by leaving them in a truck rack or anything, but most of us hid our deer guns behind the truck seats, then headed for the woods as soon as we got off from work. The security guards were a joke anyhow, doing things like checking employee lunch boxes the day after 5 sheets of 3/4 inch plywood disappeared. Their main interest in the employee parking lots was in writing "company parking tickets" if you had a wheel on a parking space line.
