Carrying at a job?
#1
So I'm about to start a little part time job while I work on getting out of my bad shop/business situation (long story, but I did post on it in another thread)....

Can I carry deep concealed without asking permission at a new business? (Like in a SmartCarry that nobody can tell...)

Basically meaning, if I carried without permission (and no signs or written rules to the contrary), and had to use it, could I get prosecuted?

Or should I just forget it, and not carry?

No rules, definetly carry! Can they fire you if they find out.....they can always find a reason to let someone go.

Prosecution....not sure what crime there is?

Oh I dunno...if some crazy guy with a knife or gun walks in the business and you pull the weapon and they decide to say "We didn't know you carried and would not have allowed it."

Hopefully though they'd be grateful you had it at that point I guess.

IANAL!!!!! It all depends on the rules as they were explained to you. If they did not specify that you can not have a weapon/firearm then you can carry, I would recommend deep. If they have rules against it then you have little choice but to follow the rules. The other option is to accept the fact that they could fire you for having a weapon on their property. I believe that the only way that they could prosecute would be for defiant trespass though.

Its a small, privately owned business and nothing was ever mentioned about weapons, but I figure if I ask, the answer would be no. haha.

In that case take a line from Slick Willie, Don't ask, don't tell. Wink

I'm an investigator for my company. I screw a lot of people over when they break the law and it affects my company, and I screw a lot of employees over when they break the law or violate company policy. That said, it is against our company's policy to possess any kind of weapon at work. I know a lot of people at my work know what I drive, and I often leave my job late at night. I will not carry on me while I am at work, but I do keep my firearm SECURED in my vehicle. There are two negative scenarios I face while at work. 1) If somebody comes to my work and starts engaging targets via firearm. 2) If while walking to my truck after work, somebody comes up to me and threatens me prior to entering my vehicle and retrieving my firearm. I'm working on allowing my company to install lock boxes at my site for securing weapons, but considering our headquarters is located in New York City (the majority of the company's higher ups are New Yorkers), I doubt they will be okay with it.

To answer your question, you may defend yourself with a firearm if your life is threatened at work, however depending on what their company policy is, you may lose your job if they discover you are carrying.

I've read plenty of news stories over the years about people stopping a robbery or assault with a gun they carried concealed and they lost their job afterwards.

That just seems ridiculous and ungrateful to me, especially if they actually stopped a robbery or assault!!!!!
