    Senate Bill 730 and HB1301 would allow Employees to store legal firearms in their vehicles during the workday. Apparently my wife's boss is against this, so he met with and wrote a letter to our Senator Glen Hegar, Jr. (R).

    Currently my wife is not allowed to have a firearm in her vehicle, so she keeps it at the house NO MATTER WHAT.
    Here is his letter to Senator Hegar:

    I have a knee jerk response on standby, but I told my wife I wouldn't send it. Would be a bad time to 'loose' her job.

    1. A gun in the car in the parking lot isn't going to "go off".

    2. She doesn't work inside the gates of the plant plant, and no one parks inside the gates.

    3. If something happened to her on the way to or from work, that could have been avoided by her having the weapon, I'd file a lawsuit against the plant...whether I thought I could win or not.

    4. Thanks for three replies instead of editing, post whore :rolleyes:

    5. Original post fixed :run:

    my question is, do private companies have the right to regulate whether or not a firearm is allowed on their premises?

    i dont see the need to have a gun in the car and if you so desperately need your gun i suggest you take the associated risk and hide it well.

    so yes, i agree with the letter.

    I don't think companies should have the right to regulate what you have in your vehicle, which has been ruled to be an extension of your home.

    I believe that has to do with state laws?? I'm pretty sure that in my ccw class, we were taught that an employer can prevent you from carrying your fire arm into the building, but they cannot prevent you from keeping it in your vehicle. I'm not sure if certain types of companies are excluded, but I don't think so...

    This is why it's important to write your representatives. I've decided to write mine with quotes from her boss'.

    Therefore my vehicle is private property and I should be allowed to have whatever I want in my car right?

    for the sake of argument. private property extends to the parking lots as well.

    she can just park off site, but would negate the whole purpose of having a gun.

    think of it like this:
    you can't carry into certain malls, no matter what the state laws are, because it's private property.

    though your gun and your body are private property, you're still considered trespassing if you don't want to leave after they ask you to.

    or how you can't carry/posses a gun on federal property, like a post office.

    You can have a gun in your car in the parking lot of all the places you just mentioned. And that's what this bill is about.
