I don't know about anyone else but I'm all for legal gun owners being a protected class since we have so many of them already anyway. Mind as well have second amendment believers protected from discrimination.

These are the rules of my business.... you are the employee and do not get to pick and choose which ones you want to follow. If you choose not to follow the rules, you may not have a job here any more.

That said.... sucks that they can't carry at work.

Why would you want to work for them anyway? I don't get it, if you didn't like the rules, why did you take the job in the first place? Shrug

Also, this has nothing to do with the second amendment. The second amendment prohibits the government from infringing on your rights, not private entities.

Be a man and get a new job. If you are going to piss on their rights, you deserve the same in return. Yeah, it pisses me off to read shit like that. Individual rights aren't your concern, it's your own convenience.

at least you admit it.

^That. As much as it sucks, I stand behind that comment.

I work for a big company in the private sector. Unfortunately most companies prohibit weapons at work. It's hard to find a job that allows its employees to be armed. I have to make money and pay my bills, so unfortunately I have to suck it up and work for a company that disarms me.

Sure, but if companies aren't allowed to have a plethora of other rules, because they're discriminatory, why not have the same protections for armed citizens? Call it the "Americans with Guns Act" and have the same language as the Americans with Disabilities Act and replace every instance of disability with firearm.

Companies, private or otherwise, already aren't a lowed to make whatever rules they want or take whatever position they want because of Political Correctness, why not protect the citizen's rights to bear arms while were at it.

You're the first person to mention the second amendment as the protection. Don't get it twisted. This is not an issue of Constitutionality. It's as presented by her lawyer, it's an issue of discrimination. Something doesn't necessarily have to be unconstitutional to be wrong.

You know as well as I do that the Constitution is a form of protection for the citizens against the Government. This isn't about the Constitutionality of the company's policies, it's about the legality and whether or not it's discriminatory. I, for one, would rather live in a country where anti-gun discrimination is as illegal as any other type. Let's face it, gay-hate, gay-fear, etc are all based on ignorance. Gun-hate and gun-fear are also based on ignorance. Let's all band together and say no to hate. How many gun owners are forced to live in fear of discovery by their employer? How many gun owners live as closet gun owners out of fear of persecution? Why should we be ashamed and secretive of who we are?

Back to how the Constitution fits in, if at all. Here's a legal opinion that finds that Constitutional Rights ought be protected in publicity accessible private property. This draws a clear line between whats allowed "In my home" versus what's allowed "in my store.". If we're going to protect first amendment rights, or fourteenth amendment rights on private property open to the public, why not include the second?
