    Workplace carry

    i was in a meeting the other day where i work and we have a policy called "10 deadly sins". they are a list of 10 things that will get you terminated with no questions. one of the things on the list is carrying a weapon on the premises. i dont have my ccw yet, but ill be getting it soon and i was wondering if anyone else have had to worry about this while carrying? do you carry while at work considering your not a LEO? if so, how is your take on this?

    my work does not allow carrying a weapon as its a county building. i carry to work place my weapon in a gun rug in the car and i carry as soon as i leave. i carry everywhere all the time but its not worth me losing my job and families income over. besides i park as close to the gate as possible.

    We can carry on company prop. as long as it is something that has been run by the boss. I am usually the first one or two here in the morning and we work in a less than desirable part of town. There are many transients, prostitutes and drug deals that happen around here. It is nice that I can carry into work. They would prefer us not to carry around the building and to secure the weapon during the day.

    My Thoughts...

    If you don't mind getting fired for not following company rules, then carry.

    My company has the same rule. I obey it.

    The company I work for does not have a written policy one way or the other. I carry at work, but do not tell anyone there. If there was a policy in place, or management asked me not to carry, I would not. It's not worth losing my job.

    It was demanded and required that I carry mulitple weapons at my place of business. Of course I was a Federal LEO for 20 years and a Chief of Police for 14.

    Maryland flight paramedics are also Maryland state troopers so they are armed while treating but if one of them is working on you, you are in very bad shape and will not notice their sidearm.

    They are always looking though.... http://recruiting.mdsp.org/medics.asp

    If I would carry at work under those conditions would depend upon if it's a company policy or a state law. I work in a FL school, so there is no choice.
    If it were only company policy, then I have to weigh how tough the neighborhood is as compared to my willingness to be fired. Concealed is concealed!IMHO (but it has to be legal)

    Makes two of us. Teaching at a state university in FL means no choice for me...and the U where I work has also made it policy to exercise its right under state law to prohibit even having a weapon in one's vehicle in the parking lots on campus.

    I have no doubt I would face termination were I to violate this.

    i guess i should have chose a different way of asking my question as i didnt mean to offend anyone on my question. i was thinking that with it being concealed it might be a little above and beyond that law. i understand not carrying in schools and such but as for where i work (a major hotel/restaurant), it might be one of them things where out of sight/out of mind applies. thank you all very much for the thoughts and comments!

    Obey the Law and Company Policy you won't be going wrong.

    I have a "gun box" in my truck, carry to work, lock it up and carry after work. So I guess if there is a "workplace shooting" I'll be one of the "unlucky" unarmed victims but i will keep my job.

    In Utah businesses MUST allow their workers to keep their guns in their vehicles in the parking lot. Otherwise a worker would be denied protection to/from work. However, businesses can have a "no weapons" policy in the building and can enforce that by firing the culpable.

    My company has such a policy and I don't like it. Once I was in working on a Saturday and the place was being robbed. I actually unknowingly bumped into one of the thieves. It's a big place so I didn't think anything about not knowing the person. Also, we had a bomb threat recently.

    I'm actually thinking of approaching the management and asking for a quiet exception to the rule.

    I am not a lawyer and this may be completely wrong. (I'm going to have to add this to my sig :) )
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.
