    No carry at work; No car to secure it

    So, what about folks who are not allowed to carry at work, but walk, take public transportation, bike or ride to work? Meaning, that they don't have a car to secure their gun(s) while at work.

    I know that one option is to leave the gun at home and carry pepper spray but, what if the employee really wants/needs to carry his/her gun?

    Sounds like you are out of luck. You either break the law/employer rules or go without a handgun. It's that simple. Find something else like a knife or spray.

    I typically bicycle 30-40 miles in shorts and a t-shirt while comfortably and confidently carrying my Kahr undetected in a Brommeland holster. I am not advocating that anyone violate laws, rules or anything else. Just saying what I do in long-term deep-conceal situations.

    We all make choices in life...many involve sacrifice...is it going to be the car or the gun? Stay legal, 'wanting' has nothing to do with it.OMO

    ^^^ That sums up your options, unless you have lockboxes at work or can figure out how to attach a safe to your bike.

    As stated above, one of three things gets left at home, you gun, the worth of your word, or your non criminal status.

    When you agreed to employment, you agreed to follow company policy. Nothing said you had to agree. Remember, your word is your bond. Is your word worth anything to you?

    You might discuss this with your employer. There is a small possibility your employer may be willing to provide secure storage for your firearm while you are at work. This is especially true if there is a guardhouse, or gate, through which you pass in order to enter your facility.

    Good luck, but if the above does not bear fruit, I agree with the others that have said:

    "When you agreed to employment, you agreed to follow company policy. Nothing said you had to agree. Remember, your word is your bond. Is your word worth anything to you?"
