Proposed law: Companies can't keep employees from bringing guns to work


NRA-backed bills raise freedom, safety concerns

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida businesses could soon face criminal charges if they try to stop employees from bringing guns to work in their cars, thrusting the state into a growing national debate pitting individual freedom against job safety.

Backed by the National Rifle Association, two state lawmakers have filed bills that would allow workers to have guns at work, as long as the weapons remain locked in their vehicles.

Eitherway, I wouldn't tell a sole you have a gun in your car. Its the fastest way to get your car broken into.

That won't protect you from getting fired. Since the business owns or rents the parking lot, thier rules apply in the parking lot. Make sure NO ONE at your job knows of a weapon in your car, or you could lose your job. The employer can't STOP you from keeping a gun in your car, but they can stop you from working there. And since Texas is a right to work state, you'll have no recourse.

Not true if you are a school teacher it is illegal to have a gun or cigarette on any part of the grounds including the parking lot. I don't smoke but I do prefer to have a gun in my car. I guess I'll just have to do without.

Just FYI, if the employer leases in an office building then they don't own the parking lot. It is a common area. They also don't have any say about the hallways, bathrooms, elevators or anything like that. Those are all common areas that the landlord keeps.

But they can still fire you at any time so it doesn't really matter.
