    Any internet laywers want to take a shot at this one?
    I'm sure the company policy states you have to listen to your supervisor, manager, the owner, etc,. All they need to say is don't carry a firearm. If you say no, it is insubordination (you would not even qualify for unemployment). Even easier to put the pieces together if you consider at will employment laws.

    We can scorn companies with anti-2A policies / views, but as far as what is legal, easy answer.
