    Tomorrow is "Bring your Gun to Work Day" in Texas.

    Yeah - It is just a holiday I made up.. but it is the truth, tomorrow is the first day the new law goes into effect that all Texans (well, except felons) may now bring our guns to work without fear of being fired. Well, when I say work, I mean the parking lot. Still, it is cause for celebration because I know this law will affect so many law abiding citizens in a positive way.

    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.

    I work for a small Structural Engineering firm in Raleigh NC. I am very fortunate at work in that my company is privately owned and of the 8 employees and owners five of us have our CCW and carry at work every day. Our owners encourage it. We also have a corporate membership at the local sporting clays range and shoot and hunt together frequently as a group.
    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    Sadly the law does not apply to school districs. So teachers driving to and from work are still out of luck.
