^^^ This. My post should have been clearer. While the Auto Zone "encounter" is an awesome example, it's WAY not the rule...it is definitely the exception.

Streaker, what you say it true, and I get that...and it's probably valid. But the "chance" that I might do wrong will never be (of course) a reason to relieve me of my weapon, or my rights. I own a business, and appreciate the possibility that an employee could either take or save my life. That being said, it will NEVER be the responsibility of my employee to protect my business.

Here's a story on the efforts to allow people to carry guns to work and leave them in their cars in the workplace parking lot.

I am opposed. I don't think people should ever leave a firearm in a car unattended.

I would however support work supplied lockers on the premises, in the place of employment.

Another angle to view this issue: Your commute to and from work.

While there has been discussion of crap going down while at work, one major reason to have this pass would be to give you protection while going to and from work, and while out on lunch.

One place where I work is very shady, but they have banned all weapons on the property. So, I violate policy and hope for the best, or I leave my gun at home and risk an event during the commute.

Neither option is pleasant in my mind.

This is why I would support it. I drive 20-25 miles to work. I don't like being unarmed that long or far. However, right now, I rent a secure storage facility near my work to park at, but it would be nice to not have to do that.

Very mixed feelings about this.

I work at large research facility, many very bright people are bipolar and many are medicated. I would be conderned if they had handguns at work.

Ask Valorius how he feels about crazy scientists with access to handguns.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

I work in a very large skyscraper. I'm up on a high floor.

However, there is a big bank on the ground floor. Granted, the bank faces a numbered street and not a big 4-lane street and it's turned away from the lobby... but the MAC machine is right next to the lobby entrance.

It has been robbed at gunpoint before. Last time I believe was last summer.

I am not a depositor at that bank, although my mortgage is with them. When SHTF over there, the only comfort I have is that there's expensive Italian marble paneling up on the walls over the sheetrock that separates the bank from the lobby.

I don't carry to work except I do take pepper spray b/c I'm way more likely to run into a BG encounter on the train or coming/going from it. When I'm in CC it's quite a bit safer, since it's during the day. If I had to head down there at night though outside normal working hours I definitely would carry instead of taking pepper.



That being said, any bad shit situation and it's involving work---I would imagine even if it were in the lobby... terminated. The normal security that's there doesn't carry either, so they're going to get overrun if there's ever a bad situation in the lobby. There are many places to get out of the lobby though including underground and I know where all the pull switches are.
