    Businesses with security officers

    if you were working at a business that had its own building and security officers would you go up and tell the officers that you had your license and that you carry while at work?

    Of course, check state laws. (Btw, I'm not a lawyer.) I would say "no" since even in "Must tell" states, you don't have to tell every police officer that you're carrying. Some say only if they ask for your ID, and others say only if it's "official business."

    Now if they're just hired security guards, no way!

    That's just my understanding of the law side. Now, your employee code of conduct is a whole other story.

    Edit: Just noticed you're in Dallas, and Texas is a Must-Tell state... (even though there's no real penalty for not telling)

    Why would it be any of their business? This is a great opportunity to keep one's mouth shut, especially if you are carrying against company policy. Even if carrying isn't against your company's policy, it's still a dumb move.

    The only exception I could see would be if you had permission to carry and the company required that Security be notified of the fact.

    I don't believe a security guard counts as a "sworn peace officer" and besides, why would you want to give them something to do?

    In Texas you only have to tell a magistrate or a LEO and only if they ask you for ID and you are carrying at the time.

    No, why would I, or anyone want to give away our secret. It makes no sense to show your hand before being called.

    Always carry, never tell. (unless required by law) The last thing you need is somebody outting you at work.

    NO! If there is not already a rule against carrying at your jobsite, this is a quick way to get such a rule imposed.
