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

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

    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.

    As davew83 says...
    Before you are allowed on the facility campus they will be sure to inform you that it's a foreign trade one and all the rules that entails.

    Both BMW and Mercedes are on that list.
    FTZ 134 on the list is in Chattanooga, but it does not list the entity..

    I would have to assume it's VW, who else in Chattanooga would be granted foreign trade zone status?

    VW anti-gun? Then most big corporations are.

    What big corporations allow you to bring a gun on company property?

    Good point.
    Do business with any large corporation in the US on their property and you will be reminded that insurance companies run this country.

    Are you sayings they can't even have it locked in their car in your driveway? Because that's what this is about.

    Your employer, maybe so.

    Become an employee of companies like VW or BMW and they will tell you that their rules are the rules, including the parking lot.
    You will be required to sign an agreement to that effect, which includes your termination if you violate those rules.

    I've never seen a commercial insurance app that asks if guns are allowed on the property for rating purposes.

    This has become a very contentious issue in TN. It's come up before the legislature six times now. Last year there where enough votes to easily pass it, but the large corporations, FedEx, Bridgestone and VW, made campaign contributions to the legislative leaders, who wouldn't let it come up for a vote. One lost her primary afterwards due to the pressure and funds put against her by the NRA and TFA to send a message.

    The people in this state want this bill. Employers shouldn't have the right to force their employees to have to commute, some long distances, unarmed. Under the Castle Doctrine, the car is considered an extension of your home. Would those of you that support this also support them saying you can't have a weapon in your home, because you might bring it to work? Businesses are told all the time what they can and can't do by the government. And "property rights" don't trump your God given right to self defense.

    It's not just the risk of termination that's the issue here. In TN, a posted sign as minimal as a 3"gun buster decal has the force of law, bringing a misdemeanor charge, $500 fine and possible loss of your permit with it.

    VW is wrong. In Vechicle is private property. They do not have the right to search an employes Vechicle under any circumstance I can think of. LEO can not search unless probable cause exists. Many states have taken up this cause.

    VW is flat out a left wing organization. Don't believe me? I saw their newest commercial yesterday during the AFC championship game and they had a shell of a man attempting to play catch with his son, making a mockery of men, the guy looked like a complete bafoon. If you pay attention you'll see many commercials like this, not saying VW is the only one but I avoid those companies.

    Until you sign an agreement with them that states otherwise.
    Which you will do as a condition to doing business with them, including being an employee.
    Yeah, it's your vehicle, but it's their parking-lot.

    Don't want to be bound by those rules?
    Don't do business with them.

    I'm almost of two minds on this issue. That is I can agree with both the 2A argument and the property rights one. I think both sides can compromise a little - keep your gun locked in your car and it shouldn't be an issue.

    Are corporations allowed to override similar God-given rights? e.g., can your employer forbid you making gay-rights statements on the factory floor but allow you to have a rainbow sticker on your car?

    What if I require you to go to my church on Sundays in order to work for me?
