dude, i don't want to own your driveway. If you did not want someone to carry a firearm in your house would it still bother you if he took off the firearm and locked it in his trunk. I am not trying to own anything except the freedom to protect myself once i leave the property.
do what you can with what you have where you are at (theodore roosevelt)
Consider this. Can you go into my car if I park it on your driveway without my permission -- to check and see if I have something you do not want on your property?
Can you search my person -- against my will?
You can ask to do either and I can comply if I want. If I say no you can ask me to leave. If I do not then it’s trepassing
However, you cannot bypass my approval and not get in legal trouble for it.
Even if I have committed a crime within my car... while it is on your property (unless you are a cop with probable cause) you cannot search it legally.
Cops ask to search your car when they stop you in public (unless they have solid "can hold up in court" reason to not ask you). Why would any private person or entity have greater "search powers" when law enforcement does not?
Just about anything can be in somebody’s car.
What if -- instead of a gun -- it's some "start the union at work" pamphlets when the top-level executives are fighting to stop it? What if it's political speech documents during presidential elections?
What if you have a bomb-making booklet where anyone can casually see it – if they just bother to look in your car? Can they then search the car then?
What about porn in the car?
Let's make it really sick... it's kiddie porn... can a company then search somebody’s car?
Sorry… no (for what it’s worth). All you can do is call the cops and let them take it from there.
So why is it that everything else deserves the fundamental personal property rights protection -- even when going on another’s property... but guns do not?
