    Yes. I can CC or OC depending on my mood. I work remotely out of my house and my employer is 2000 miles away so I make the rules.

    My previous employer said no weapons on company property and that included the parking lot even though Florida law says they can't keep us from carrying in the parking lot.

    Thumbs up

    Nope, so I never park in the company lots. I park on the street right outside my office.

    I carry to work and leave in the truck in a gated parking lot. No guns allowed in the work place, yet they do NOT have any signs posted. Therefore, according to Missouri law, they cannot legally keep you from carrying on the work place since any other person could walk in. This was per a "labor law" notice to employers.
    Since company policy does not allow carrying on the premises then I will honor it. BUT, since MO law allows concealed carry in your vehicle then the company cannot do anything about it. I have my CC, but I need my job too!

    I cannot. I work as a teacher in a middle school.

    No firearms are allowed on the property except by LEO.

    Depends on your company's policy. As for me, alas, no - I work for the military, and can not bring my weapon on base...

    Same here.
    YOU are the weapon, your firearm is just a tool!

    I too work for a small company with no written policy. I just received my license last week and have carried not only to work, but all day at work while waiting on and helping customers. Don't ask, don't tell is the way I see it.

    Yes. And given that our building and lot has armed (and generally attentive) security, it doesn't bother me to leave it there.

    I'm about to start working for a government agency, so that is a no go. I guess I'll be doing what a lot of you do and park outside of our lot.

    Company policy states that possessing a firearm on company property (including private vehicles) is prohibited.
    Texas law provides me the right to carry in my vehicle - therein lies the conflict.
    The way I see it, the company cannot protect me from the time I leave my house until the time I arrive at their property (and vice-versa). I do not carry inside the workplace, but secure my weapon in a cable-locked gun safe under my passenger seat. Gun carry is my right, and I will accept the consequences if this issue is every brought to light (99.9% unlikely I hope - always carry, never tell...).
    I should not be punished as a law-abiding citizen. If I leave work and decide to got to the mall, the bank, the range, the anywhere - the company is not (and cannot) going to take responsibility for my safety.
    These blanket company policies are written into employee handbooks as a 'CYA' in case of a lawsuit or complaint, giving the employer the upper hand in these cases.
    Hopefully with enough organizational support, laws can be changed to protect the rights of law-abiding gun-carrying American citizens (sigh).

    Why argue with the 9mm vs. .45 issue? Carry the best of both worlds with some 40 cal !

    Stay safe out there - the Constitution needs you!
