    Lightbulb Banks and general carry

    I have a CCP from NC.

    Places forbidden to carry are federal and state buildings, financial institutions, banks, schools and establishments that serve alcohol.

    I do a good bit of travel for work and check out the states I am going to be in and traveling through before I go. Most have the same restrictions.

    The recent 10 Circuit Court ruling may have some effect on company parking lots but inside a prohibited building or building where to owner doesn’t want it is a felony.

    I guess a couple of things are good in OK about bring weapons to work. If they are not allowed the employer can not keep from storing them in your locked vehicle in the parking lot. Also any employer can not ask if you own a gun. Not carry, but own!!!

    I was at my bank today (monday paydays) I disarmed only the first payday after ccw permit. I have carried every time after that. IWB with a lose shirt is even deep enough for my bank. and there is no law agenst it. I was asked at one time to remove my sunglasses. that is because they were robed by a guy in clear glasses and a baseball cap 3 days prior. single guy, single teller with a note.

    Actually it is a lousy policy. How can we sit and say it's wrong for Pizza Hut, Radio Shack, Universities and other businesses to forbid employees and customers to carry, then turn around and say it would be OK for a bank to not let employee's carry.

    Should the bank employee who has to walk 2 blocks from where they park have to be put at risk of being unarmed? If they have gone through the process to obtain a carry permit their rights should not be denied.

    Amerika the great! With all the restrictions placed on us it's hard to believe that we even have individual rights sometimes.

    My wife worked at a bank several years ago and they have a a simple no weapons policy for employees. Simple as in they put a single sentence in the handbook that ended with the phrase "....may be subject to termination."

    They never asked anything about firearms and they don't have an issue with customers OCing.

    As a side note I've noticed recently that it's simply amazing the amount of new CCW'ers that believe it's a federal law that they can't carry in banks.

    I have worked for a large national bank, and now work for a smaller credit union in both a large city and rural country. Both have no gun policies. I carried and still do at both. Depends on your job title, at the larger bank I carried a brief and just stuck it inside. The small CU I carry it in a gym bag and put it under my desk. I am thinking of switching over to ankle carry though. You can carry, but just have to know that if you get caught you will likely lose your employment. I know this thread is pretty old, but in case someone new reads it....thats what i do

    At my bank The manager used to sit in his office . People had a clear view almost any place in bank . Talk guns and show our latest bought or trade. In plain view of every one . . Was a sad day When he got a promotion and transferred.

    Bottom line: not worth getting anybody, employee or customer, hurt.

    I respect this philosophy and take my piece off and put in gun safe in trunk when I enter bank.

    Liquor stores and 711s are another matter. Lower class of robber and they tend to shoot clerks just for the fun of it!
    I completely support each individual making their own choice on whether to carry into a bank or not. But for the record, no banks I've seen in Oklahoma forbid bringing weapons in. I've carried into my bank many times. But then, I've also chosen NOT to "strap up" before going into the bank.. depends on my situation.. was I already carrying or not when I got there.

    Most armed robbers want the money and not the hassle that comes with murdering someone.

    If your bank is held up, freely give the money over and be thankful they didn't start shooting.

    The banks I deal with prohibit employee carry.

    The hardware stores I buy from prohibit employee carry.

    The grocery stores I shop at prohibit employee carry.

    None of them prohibit customer carry.

    I work with a couple of banks. I'll have to ask about their employee policy. For the record none have signage prohibiting carrying a weapon for customers. My business acct is with Wells Fargo and personal with USAA. It might help being in Utah which is fairly gun friendly.

    Those that work for me get their CCP class paid for and are encouraged to carry. I even bought one a gun - of course she is my daughter (She is my exit strategy in a few years). My atty carries but not my assistant. I may have to take her to my LGS and let her pick one out.

    This would be exactly what I would be thinking. I wouldn't draw to save the banks money but you simply do not know, until it's over, if they're going to kill folks. If they're crazy enough to rob a bank, it'd be foolish to assume that there's no way that they'd not shoot folks.

    This is no longer true in NC. You can carry concealed in banks and financial institutions as long as they are not posted. Most that I have seen are posted, however, our credit union is not posted.
