    City Municipal Employee

    I am a full time employee for a City Municipality in Texas. Can I carry here at my work? No 30.06 signs are posted and they do not have a weapons policy. I also drive a City vehicle daily. Please give me your thoughts. Tks!

    Absent a sign or policy, what is to wonder?

    I too am a Muni employee over here in New Mexico.

    No signs posted at city hall, nothing in the employee rule book I was told to read and sign off on.

    I dont ask and they dont know.

    My point also. You should have learned that during your CCW class. No sign, no policy? No problem!

    In the absence of signage or a written policy (make sure you check that one out), you should be OK to carry as stipulated on your permit. You mentioned you were a municipal employee.....remember that if your duties take you to a City Hall, Courthouse, school or Police facility, many jurisdictions prohibit weapons in these areas. If you are caught carrying in these buildings/properties, you could have big problems other than just your job.

    My point, too many gray areas for me to feel comfortable to carry. My office "workspace" is owned by the City, (Govt entity) and so is my City work truck (Govt entity). But none are "utilized by the court". I guess Im just scared to death to carry not knowing 100% clearly in black and white so I can back up my fight if something were to arise. Again, thanks for the opinions and comments. Please continue with your input or if there is a known court case on this subject. Much appreciated!
