    How would YOU interpret this?

    I work for a large international company. In regard to firearms on company property, the employee manual states ...

    "No dangerous or illegal firearm is allowed on company property."

    From what I gather, their intent is to bar weapons outright. However, I have not asked and I'm not sure I want to. How do you read this?

    That sounds like as close to a "Don't ask, don't tell" policy as you can get.

    I do NOT consider my firearm "dangerous," when carried responsibly, and it certainly isn't "illegal" as I do have a permit for it.

    No, I don't think I'd ask them about it, either. Just keep the "concealed" concept close to your heart.

    "No dangerous or illegal firearm is allowed on company property."
    How long is a piece of cord?

    I will take this (to suit my purposes!) to be -

    No firearm is allowed on company property if unsafe and/or not in the responsible possession of a legally permitted CCW

    If they said ''NO WEAPONS'' - that might have a lot less leaway!

    Follow your states CCW rules and don't tell anyone at work. As long as no one see your gun at work, you will be OK.

    most weapons are only as dangerous as the person using them. makes most cars downright lethal.

    I don't know if it's pushing the envelope, but I would consider legal carry as being a legal firearm. As to dangerous, I wouldn't carry a weapon I consider a dangerous. I consider all my firearms as being safe.

    I used to work in my much younger days in a slaughtering plant. No firearms allowed but take a guess how many people on the floor used VERY sharp knives every day doing their job (over 5,000). Definitely don't ask don't tell!

    Just make sure that you take a SAFE and LEGAL firearm to work.

    Hey! Sounds like a great place to work.
    I just "lost" my job working for a Boeing subsidiary where Firearms are banned. Not even allowed in employee vehicles "on the premises."
    I'd carry if I worked where you work. That is, if you carry "legally, and safely".
    Its so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    The way you get shot by a concealed weapons permit holder is, you point a gun at him, the Sheriff said.

    I'll agree with the opinion put forth by the rest on this thread...

    Don't ask, don't tell. Your firearm is neither dangerous nor is it illegal if you have the correct documentation. Carry and never tell.

    I see it like this:: NO firearm is dangerous in and of itself. People are dangerous.

    As for the firearm being "illegal", the definition of such would fall under the appropriate state penal code.
