    I cannot per the rules of the company handbook. And I prefer to not bypass that rule. But I do keep a Glock in my truck in the parking lot. And my employer could legally disallow me keeping my gun my my truck while on their property, but they haven't yet had the need to add that to the handbook. And if that did change, I'm not so sure it would affect my current carry routine. *winkwink*

    Against company policy, and in this economy, I don't need to give them the slightest reason to consider dismissing me. I just leave it in the car before I come in....

    I recently read my employee handbook, I'm a mechanic in Illinois, right by where they talk about no alcohol on the premise, they state no firearms, but when Xmas comes around the boss is the first one to bring a bottle and start doing shots on the parts counter, he doesn't follow one rule, I won't follow the other when concealed carry comes

    Legal by state law, against company policy.

    Two of the three of us do anyway.

    CEO and the one 'urban' employee don't.

    Of course if I get caught, I'm past SS retirement age.

    My wife also carries in a hidden purse pocket. Totally against hospital rules, but she figures if the surgeons can show her their guns while in her office, she can also be safe on the three block walk through a bad part of town to the parking lot.

    She says she'd rather be alive and looking for work, than buried.

    State Law says we can't carry on any Hospital grounds...

    We can't carry on premises, so I leave mine in my glove box while I'm at work.

    I guess it comes down to how strongly you feel you need to carry vs how much you like your job, and how much you need it. Work rules don't permit carry at work, so I don't. That doesn't mean I'm not prepared and that I don't have a plan in the event there is an unfortunate event.

    Sadly Im in the military.....and yes we cant have guns on base???;(

    I was laughing the other day. I watched a bunch of troops escorting a load of armament from one armoury to another. They had M-4s with no magazines in em. When I asked one of them about it, they said the M-4s were just to deter people, they didnt have any ammo....what a sad world!

    It absolutely amazes me that military bases are gun free zones. We have gone completely insane as a country. Fort Hood could have been diminished with casualties if only the soldiers were allowed to carry. Thanks for you service...

    I work remotely from home so I am a bit lucky. If I go into the office (which is in an Office Park) and the parking lot is free and open access, there is a gun in the vehicle I drive. I park near the door and have not had any issues as the company name is not on the door or building. Yes there are stealth companies out there that do work that you would never know what it is. The company is well known world wide, but certain offices are 100% stealth. You just don't know who it is going in and out, but their access card works the front door.
