BMW in Spartanburg, SC has a no gun policy. If you don't like it, don't work for them. It would be no different than me saying to not bring a gun into my house when you come over for dinner. Not that I would do that though. Unless we were drinking, which is how it usually works out.

BMW also has a seatbelt policy while on the property, wear it or you can get fired.

Both the BMW facility in Carolina and the Mercedes facility in Alabama are foreign trade zones..

I would be surprised if the VW facility were not also.

Don't know specifically how that may affect firearms laws, but it governs many other things.

Who cares about the Krauts offshoring their jobs to the USA because they don't want to pay their own people. If they think that little of their own countrymen than they will think less of Tennesseans. Besides, I thought we whupped their butts in two World Wars. They should be working for us.

The government telling a business or private citizen they have to allow guns on their property is every bit as bad as them telling people they can't have them.

Simple solution is for the state to buy the property next to VW and build a parking lot on it. Then they could charge $1 a day for parking or some such. That way the employees could park there and not at VWs' plant and could still carry.

They may have a longer walk.

"the Krauts" build their cars all over the planet.
As well as their heavy trucks and precision equipment.

If we were building BMWs, Mercedes, and Volkswagens they might be working for us...

But we don't.

In this economy, I'm sure the employees will follow the rules of VW.

But it's not in your house, or thiers, it's in the car parked outside.

The question is if you have one in the car how would they know, like the guy stated in the article:

"Because I will guarantee you there are gun carry permit holders that have a firearm in their car in their parking lot as we're sitting here speaking," he said. "And all we're doing is making those people legal."

We did it here in Florida a couple of years ago, so far it hasn't led to any problems.

This whole thing started when anti gun groups started to lobby corps. to enact these rules and came to a head when one company used dogs to search cars:

http://www.thehighroad.org/archive/i.../t-113443.html

VALLIANT, Okla. -- In late summer of 2002, Steve Bastible put three bullets into a dying cow at his ranch, threw the emptied rifle behind the seat of his pickup and forgot about it.

A few weeks later, the rifle cost him his job of 23 years.

That Oct. 1, in a surprise search, Weyerhaeuser Co. sent gun-sniffing dogs into the parking lot of its paper mill here. Mr. Bastible and 11 other workers were fired after guns were found in their vehicles. The timber company said the weapons violated a new company policy that extended a longtime workplace gun ban to the parking area. The fired workers said they knew nothing of the new rule.

The whole gun flap actually started with an apparent drug overdose at the plant. Plant manager Randy Nebel hired a security company to bring in four dogs to search for drugs and guns in the parking lot. The dogs didn't find any drugs but zeroed in on several vehicles containing firearms.

The company then ordered the workers to open the suspect cars so that they could be hand-searched. A dozen workers, four Weyerhaeuser employees and eight who worked for subcontractors, were suspended for having rifles, shotguns or handguns. A couple of days later, they were fired as part of Weyerhaeuser and its subcontractors' zero-tolerance policy for major safety violations, the companies say.

http://www.policeone.com/police-prod...sniffing-K-9s/

The gun dog is trained to focus on odor that relates exclusively to the oils, powder and residue commonly associated with a dischared firearm and not human odor.
Another benefit to a gun canine under the aforementioned circumstances is that the dog handler does not have to worry about human scent contamination of the area to be searched. Every handler, at some point in time, has come across a scene where their colleagues have inadvertently trampled through the area to be searched. With the use a gun dog, those issues are not a concern for the gun dog handler that is trying to locate a firearm, because the dog focuses only on the odor associated with guns and ammunition.

Above post is interesting... We learn something new each day.

If a gun sniffing dog ever came near me, it would do back flips...

It is none of my employers business what is inside my car. In the state of Texas, the vehicle is now seen as an extension of your home and you can carry in the vehicle without a permit. Since the vehicle is now an extension of my property, seems to be a major win for property owners rights.
