Pa. Employee Parking Lot Protection Amendment Filed to Transportation Bill
Pennsylvania: Employee Parking Lot Protection Amendment Filed to Transportation Bill

Posted on June 23, 2014

This week in Harrisburg, an amendment has been filed by state Senator Rich Alloway (R-33) to House Bill 1317, a transportation bill. This amendment would amend employee parking lot protection language into HB 1317 and could be voted on sometime this week in the Pennsylvania Senate. Thus, it is critical that you contact your state Senator TODAY in support of this amendment.

The Alloway amendment would prevent public and private employers from establishing, maintaining or enforcing a policy to prohibit employees who are concealed carry license holders from storing a handgun secured in their motor vehicle parked at their workplace.

There seems to be a plethora of businesses micromanaging the lawful contents of one’s private vehicle at the workplace. These policies are widespread across the Keystone State, and something needs to be done. These types of gun bans only serve to jeopardize the safety of employees commuting to and from the workplace, and the employer holds no liability if you fall victim to a violent crime during your commute. You shouldn’t have to be the next potential victim of violent crime because you decided to seek employment at a steel company or a department store that arbitrarily bans the storage of firearms in your privately-owned vehicle.

It’s important that you call AND e-mail your state Senator TODAY and urge him or her to vote for this pro-gun amendment to HB 1317. Urge your state Senator to stop the banning of firearms inside one’s private motor vehicle. Tell them that 23 states around the country have employee protection parking lot laws, and that Pennsylvanians should have the same rights as nearly half the country!
