Just curious what your employers firearm rules are.

The large oil company that I work for doesn't even allow ammo in an employees vehicle, let alone
any firearms. What a pain in the *ss when waterfowl season rolls around.

Welcome aboard byrdman77, and now down to business.

When a endentured servant or slave is freed a ceremony is held where the person is armed as a sign of a free man.

Most general contractors I have worked for have a no firearms policy. I always disregard, but am ultra aware when I am working on a school.

Don't ask, don't tell, its realy not a problem with them, just be discreet. Durring hunting season even the bosses usualy have a rifle or are gone hunting. Discussions of balistics, calibers and guns are the norm.

I work for a VERY Pro-Gun company, and for a good reason.

My employer insists I wear a weapon.

My wonderful Gov't/tax and give to maggots employer has a 0 tolerance policy for firearms, even in employee vehicles. I wonder how far I could take it in court as I park on a city street and not private/gov't property. They do get to see my disdain on the Mondays after I hit the GF pit and haul out bullet shredded garbage in the back of my truck .

Somewhere in the boilerplate that usually passes for employee handbooks, manual, etc., there is almost always a blanket statement banning weapons.

Not sure I just changed jobs, but on the first day the owner had to tell me and my supervisor a story. Seems like that morning he went out side to go to work and one of his dogs was barking at something, turned out to be a rattler, so he goes in the house, opens up the gunsafe grabs his WIFES 20ga and shots it.

We sale paintball supplies, my supervisor has an issue or two of one gun magazine or an other on his desk, I only worked there 2 weeks and I got them to underwrite some stuff for our Friends of the NRA banquet, the bosses WIFE won a rifle at some event a had them order one in lefthanded so she could shot it, the boss and his dad are always talking about going hunting.

Man it seems like I started work at a place ran by gun grabbers.

I drive a truck so I'm not allowed to carry firearms on the truck per state and federal law.
Most companies I've worked for have had something in the handbook about not carrying firearms on the truck but had no problems with other "Tools" in fact my last employer gave me a nice little knife as a safety award.
This company has a "no dangerous weapons of any kind" rule, no biggie, my knives, hammers, hatchet, tire thumpers are legitimate tools that haven't been questioned even when inspected in Commiefornia.

My company provides free wireless internet at our terminals so the drivers can surf from their trucks, a couple months ago I tried using it to srf the boards and got a message that this and several other gun related sites were blocked, the message said to refer to a specific rule in the handbook which bans porn, occult material, hate speach and weapons.
When I looked up that section of the handbook it was rule which specifically said we are not allowed to "carry" weapons on the truck.
I grabbed my handbook and a copy of the message and went in to the IT department to see what was up, they refered me to the HR department so I inocently go skipping off to HR.
I'm met at the front desk by a perky little secratary that has no clue what I'm talking about so she sends me to her supervisor, thes person is also at a loss for an explanation as to why we aren't allowed to read or see information about weapons so she refers me to her supervisor, she also cna't find any rule against my request to have the filters removed but points out that it's their network and they can do what they like with it.
I calmly point out that I agree it's their network but if their is no written rule then is she sure that somebody with the proper authority had the filter put in place? this gets her undies all up in a bunch so she drags me in to ask her stupidvisor(this company has WAAAAAAY too many STUPIDvisors )
Anyway, this woman is apparently the great high muckety muck in HR and goes over the "it's our network and we'll do whatever we please with it" speach to which I once again request to see the written rule as signed by an apropriate officer of the company, she agrees to find the info for me within a couple days.
I thank her for her time and go on my merry way.
The next day as I'm boogy'n down the super slab I get a message to call my dispatcher ASAP, when I stop and call I'm immidiately asked if I made threatening comments to somebody in HR? NO, I was very polite and never threatened anybody, I just asked to see the written rule so I explained this to my dispatcher and offered to write an apology letter if he thought I should.
Apperantly she made it sound like I was some raving lunatic that wanted guns or else.
About 2 weeks later I ran by that terminal and saw the lady at lunch, her eyes bugged out of her head and she suddenly lost her appatite but I never heard another word about it.

The GOD$$%^^%&^$ F%#^%$^& filter is still in place tho

Can't have a firearm in my possession or in vehicle while there for "Official company business". So when I am off the clock, I am good to go.

This is Bullshi!t that companys say to restrict you. Ask them to SHOW you the laws both state and Federal.

I can't find it right now but I'll look em up later.
I drive 48 state and Canada and I've seen the regs for several of the states I have to deal with which prohibit carrying a firearm on a commercial vehicle in interstate commerce.
I definately wouldn't be able to take one to Canada.

The company I work for has a draconian 2A policy. However I beleive in don't ask, don't tell!
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 8:32:43 AM EDT
Just reviewed my handbook, YEARS ago, it mentioned weapons. Seems to not be in there anymore.

Link Posted: 8/29/2005 9:04:07 AM EDT
Absolutely verbotten. I've gotten some flak from others, even been accused of harrassment for discussing BRs at work.

I practice don't ask, don't tell. Smartcarry is your friend.

We're not allowed firearms in our vehicles, buildings, etc.
Of course why would I violate their policy. I don't even own any firearms. Lost them all in the last wind storm.

I had always thought it was illegal under Federal law, but after you called bullshit, I cant find aything in the CFR.

IIRC there is something in the Fed Truckers Regs about hand guns on interstate trucks. But it is legal to have long arms on interstate trucks. I aways kept mine with me. Don't ask don't tell.

What I thought everybody was armed.

They can kiss my ass if they want to search my car to look for my (cough) non existant guns.
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 3:20:17 AM EDT
My employer doesn't have a policy on it. A bunch of us are hunters (duck, deer, bears, birds) and routinely have guns in our rigs. I ride the motorcycle to work (KLR650) and bring my Super Redhawk in my backpack so I can look for bears after work. I carry it in an Uncle Mike's bandoleer holster under my riding coat and at least three coworkers are jealous. I think some of my coworkers carry but haven't asked. I know at least three or four who do.

No way, not on company property, so I park off property, My company actualy has a pokicy of non- agression, basicaly if you fight back you are fired period. we used to have fist fights on the production floor at least once a week as a matter of course befor this policy now if I get knifed, beat, or generaly harrased because I am not willing to risk my job and I am on company property I am going to sue my employer for creating an unsafe work place. You guys should have seen the look on my operations manager's face when I told him that I work nights in one of the worst parts of town and it does make me nervous walking to and from my van to go to work. Our company policy is very general but I have always thought that those small colapsible batons were cool they are also a handy size to put in a pocket or so I've been told....... .
