    Don't ask don't tell?

    Just curious on what people think about this.

    Say you get a job offer, there are no signs saying you cannot have a CCW, and there is nothing in the company handbook about it.

    Would most people carry without asking? Or would anyone bring it up and "ask" permission?

    I'm personally thinking "don't ask don't tell" would be the default policy here. But are there those of you who would ask?

    You have permission, so why ask? The least people know you carry the better.

    I work for a company that has no rules at all about weapons, concealed or otherwise. I carry at work everyday and dont tell anyone. Keep it concealed.

    never say a word about it. if you do, it will not end well.
    if it is legal to carry, then carry. never ask. never tell.

    If you ask they will say no.

    Better for everyone that they don't know (as long as it is legal). It limits their liability while keeping you safe at the same time.

    No signs, nothing in the company handbook. Why would there ever be a question as to what to do?

    as long as it is not against company policy, I would carry but not advertise it.

    Hmm, I just started with a new company and this question never entered my mind. Of course I carry, because I just do. Ask permission? Thought that's what that card in my wallet was for.
