    No, I am not allowed to carry at work.
    Nope, I do have 3 classes of DPD and a standard chain link fence for protection.

    DPD: 1, Retired in Place. 2, disciplinary problems, 3. Rookies being hidden on a DHS budget.

    Yes, I am allowed to carry, but choose not to do so.
    I can, but don't. Heavy equipment, ditches, water, mud, heavy labor.

    There are potential weapons everywhere, and enough danger.

    Anything can be a weapon.

    Just got some in. But not the cheap bulk stuff, the golden Remington stuff.

    Self Employed so I usually carry the G19 all the time. I take it off when I have to go in schools or Gov. places. I had to service the AC unit at the local PD a few weeks ago. The chief and I got to talking about firearms and how his kids were into skeet shooting. I eventually asked him what he and he showed me Glock 45. He asked me what I carried and I showed him my G19. Pretty cool when the chief is on the same side as us folks.

    This is sort of a trick question for me, as I work from home. I can, of course, but see no reason to. I do, though, have a loaded .22 pistol in my desk drawer. Does that count?

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    I don't really know. We had a 'human resources' person once, about 30 years ago, who instituted drug tests and made all kinds of draconian rules that everybody ignored. Fortunately, the next company president that came along retired him and told us all in a company meeting that anyone who had a CHL was good to go. Now, he is long gone, too, and none of the others who followed have addressed it. I just do whatever I want to, and figure I have a good case if anything ever comes up about it.

    Company policy at this dealership forbids it, but I know half the mechanics keep a pistol in their toolboxes. I keep a Gerber folding knife on me, you know, for opening boxes 'n stuff....

    What's work?

    Actually I could have carried in my office, but, checking the .38,
    one each, in and out of the armory would have been problems.

    We have covered the conference room table with iron a few times to checkout who's got what...its nice being a small business...we have taken office range trips a few times too...The other day I came out of my office and one of the sales guys was lying on the floor in the middle of the office with a FAL in front of him because he wanted to see how the bi-pod height was on another sales guy's rifle, kind of silly but it sums up my work environment...

    I'll admit it. Though I hold the ruler backwards to get that number...

    Not supposed to carry at work, So of course I follow the rules. I know the bad guys would stop at our gate when they see the sign, so I am safe right?

    Company has written policy forbidding weapons on company premises, which includes the parking lot since the company owns that too.

    However, what is in my vehicle(my property) is none of their business.

    Tennessee just made employees' personal vehicles off limits to employers, no matter where they happen to be parked. They need a search warrant and a police presence to inspect a vehicle, even on their own premises, and personally-owned firearms are exempt from restrictions.
