I am curious as to why you first seem to have known your company had a policy at all was during this meeting with your boss? Shouldn't you have received a copy of all company policies so you can refer to then now to see what the wording actually was when you were first employed? Can you ask for a copy now? And certainly, I would expect, that if your company never made you aware of the policy then it's not enforcible this time around. And remember, they would have to PROVE you knew the policy was in place. Most company's will do this during your first day training and ask you to read it and sign something that says you read it. And then, often, they yearly put them back out and ask you to read and sign them again. If they left any of these things uncovered then they are going to have to review how they do these sorts of things and fix it. And policy is only enforcible if they can prove you knew them.
Good luck... but do some of your own investigation to protect yourself. Ask for the policy. And ask to see your files so you can see if you ever signed anything pertaining to that policy.
Best of luck to you. You did not mention, so I presume, yours is not a Union Shop. If there is a union, talk to the shop steward quick.
It sounds to me like you are in the clear as far as company policy is concerned. It may be wise if you left your "alternative cutting tool" home on Monday and use whatever is deemed appropriate on the job that day. Don't give'm any excuse for canning you.
As for the temper tantrum, unless there where witneses, keep it to yourself. Without proof, it is your word against hers. Trust me, us male management types invariably take the side of the "poor defenseless woman", no matter how much of a b*tch she is. Unless your company's management is full of complete and utter dummies, you should be fine.
Speak softly and carry a large caliber weapon.

Every well-bred petty crook knows: the small concealable weapons always go to the far left of the place setting.
I don't want any harm to come to anybody, but it would almost be poetic if she were held up in the parking lot. Even more so if you were to come to her rescue. Now, coming back to reality, I hope everything works out for you at work tomorrow.

Where self preservation is concerned, if you're not cheating, your not trying...
Best of luck. I hope that nothing further is said. However, if you are fired, I would get a written copy of your company's policy manual. If it indeed says that carrying illegal weapons are prohibited, then I would suggest that you speak with an employment attorney. You may get to retire early!
It's Monday.......Keep us up to date on the situation there. I'm hopeing all works out for you.

Was thinking the same thing - came here just to check on his postings!
"Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.
I am all tied up in a knot waiting this one out!
Me too. He should be fine, but you never know. Hopefully he didn't get mugged today because he isn't carrying.
