Once again?

That was your first post in your own thread that had more than one word in it.

Once again I am not asking if I should or would be able to carry a gun. I do not and will not carry on my truck. I wish you could edit or delete post's on this forum.

What was your point then? (Is it a full moon?)

You asked for opinions; instead you got facts. Sorry, that’s how it works here.

“What were you asking for then - OPINIONS?

I think IT SUCKS that I am not afforded the right to defend myself due to company policies and the draconian firearms laws of certain states. Doesn't mean I'm going to break the rules to do so.

That's my OPINION. Not sure what you were asking for then?

I completely agree with you. I work in a corporate environment that has a strict no gun policy. However, it’s called conceal carry for a reason. Let me ask everyone here.... what’s worse....getting fired for a policy infraction, or BEING DEAD? I know how I’d answer. I should point out that my reply is only in relation to company policy. And, has nothing to do with carrying in a state that forbids it. I am licensed in CT, but if I cross the NY border I am immediately a felon.

When I was in Schneider classroom instruction, the no gun policy was made VERY clear. Well, all I own is a BB gun, so it really wasn't an issue for me. And at my next garage sale, the BB gun is going to be up for sale because my grandson has no interest in it anymore.

But because my hands are deadly weapons, I was afraid Schneider might require me to get them amputated. Thankfully, Schneider didn't require that.

Get fired for carrying a gun and most carriers won't touch you. There are other options to defend yourself. To each their own. Some members here have delivered to military bases, I've delivered to a federal courthouse. Weapons are banned there. So what do you do with your firearm while there? Any time you enter government property you and your truck are subject to search. If you tell them you have a firearm you won't be allowed on site so you'll need to explain to employer why you can't deliver. Don't tell them about it and they discover it during a search you're in even more trouble.

Old man I wouldn't be worried about your hands, I'm more worried about you rubbing that bengay in my eyes! Now that I wrote that I see it could be taken in a completely different way......rofl-1.gif

Rob T. For military bases, you simply declare the weapon when you arrive. They will fill out a couple quick forms, secure the weapon while you're there and then return it to you when you leave.

Politics aside, this is another thread that carries high level of potential for drama and name calling.

Remember that in most states, a violation of property owner bans on carry will likely carry a criminal sanction potential. This includes a ban on carry inside company property, and the courts are likely going to consider the truck a continuation of the company property. In my opinion, going to jail in general population is not conducive to a long career as anything other than victim.

Your actual mileage may vary.

Peace.

Rob T: Did you call me an "old man"? Do you know that is elder harassment, punishable by tickling? You should know that it took me many years to earn the title of 'old man'.

I am going to be 59 on Friday. I was texting my 26 year old DL this morning lamenting the fact. I commented that i didn't know what came after "OLD". His reply? "Old AF"

Damned Kids!
