State bill 2122 (I think) is supposed to go into effect nov 1 from what I read in the Oklahoman a couple of weeks ago. Anyone heard of this yet? The law that states that employers in the state of Oklahoma has no jurasdiction over firearms in locked personal vehicles on company property. This will mean I can park in our company parking lot instead of the church lot across the street afte nov 1 and not worry about getting firedhis
Of course this excludes schools and federal places

(Don't want to edit out the whole law to just quote one line.)

Now, this says ANY business. Would you feel safe to include hospitals in this? I know they are always skittish about this kind of thing, and don't really feel like pushing my luck.

Thanks,
Craig

Local law cannot supercede state law my friend. As long as it is not a federal hospital like an Indian hospital then you will be good after nov 1. Only thing exempt from this law is schools and federal property.

No, People have been fired from their jobs for having a concealed gun in their car while parked on company property. And the ones I know about were not able to get their jobs back after investing 20+ years in a career. The company I work for has the same policy and I used to disregard it until a couple of months ago when we had some cut throats making alligations on another employee friend of mine just to try and get him fired. I have been parking across the street since then and will continue to do so until nov 1. Jobs like the one I have arent just handed out to people so this is a big step in the right direction for this state.
