about the only places i dont carry.. are at work.. the courthouse, and when i go to kids school...... because work can and will fire you, if ANYONE ever suspected you had a gun....... and the court house has a metal detector, and get caught on school grounds permit or not and you will be hurting bad.

....... i have no problems going anywhere else..... and i ignore no gun signs. all they can do is ask you to leave the store. iv never had anyone notice that im aware of in 20 years of carrying.

I don't carry where I know it is prohibited, and they are likely to check. However, I typically avoid such places altogether.
Link Posted: 5/2/2015 12:40:16 PM EDT
My job is chemical, water, pulp, waste, collection and testing at many different paper mills. GP, IP, R-T, etc, all have no gun policy posted and some search every truck entered on their property.
So carry is a no no. But I do keep a glock hidden in my truck that the $8/hr security is too lazy to find.

Chances are if you work for a national corporation they have a no gun policy.
If I'm reading the law correctly, we have the right to have a gun locked in our vehicle on company property, just can't carry in. But all jobs I've had or companies I've visited say they will search and fire you for possession of weapons.
I think if someone followed the AL Sharpton method and sued them for just saying that in training the anti gun policy would stop.

The only time I've ever carried at work was when there was a huge flair up in the whole Ferguson mess. I was working in a comedy club with a well known black comedian who is very opinionated on the situation. Carrying at work is verboten. Grounds for immediate termination.

It's prohibited to carry on company property, but since I am outside sales and rarely on company property, I carry everywhere the law allows.

Too much variation in whether or not the listed places are legal to carry. Some vary by state. Airports can depend on where you are on the airport.

I carry where it's legal.

...and there may or may not have been an occasional "oh shit" in the past, after realizing I had passed through a prohibited area.
