Actually until last year I believe the law in TN was that a no weapons sign had to have a very specific verbage on it to be legal and could not be a "No Guns" or the circle with the line through the gun. Believe it changed last year though and now all signs are considered legal in TN.. No matter, if asked to leave for any reason, you must or face a trespass charge....


Otherway around...."Gunbuster" sign used to not be legally binding. Law has since been modified to essentially give legal weight to any signage that even remotely conveys the no-guns intent.

(TCA 39-17-1359) Tennessee Prohibition Of Carry Notice. This is the law that allows your employer to prohibit you from carrying on property.

This is also the basis for the "Parking Lot Bill" that is being considered at the current time. It would prohibit your employer from keeping a HCP holder from keeping his or her handgun locked in their car while on property.

Another reason to contact your Representative and ask them to support it.

Sorry....Fred Smith told the Reps to jump, and on the way up, they asked "HOW HIGH???"

It doesn't stand much of a chance again, so long as the super buisiness elites of the state have their way. Don't forget, Hizzoner Haslam is one of them. Even if it does pass, it won't escape committee, where I recall, Mr. "Put the Boot To 'Em" Ron Ramsey killed it last year.

My employer does not allow firearms on their property, and I honor their rules. It's not worth risking my job. They have been known to patrol the parking lot with dogs, trained to sniff out guns, and contraband. An employee was fired several years ago for having a firearm in his vehicle. He got caught by telling someone on the web, via his company pc that he had one in his car.

They passed legislation for this down here in Texas in 2011. Some of you may be interested in what is and isn't legally allowed:

Texas Guns at Work Law

It would be good to see Tennessee join this list of States...

"Texas joins a number of other states that have enacted these so-called “parking lot” laws in the past several years, including Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Utah. "


This is how it is in Florida; my vehicle is my personal property, considered my "Castle" and therefore I can store weapons in my vehicle, as it should be.

So i am wondering if that applies to your car. The way i understood it in the carry class and I may have misunderstood, was your car was your private property and since ou would leave the work premisses you could not be forced to not be able to protect yourself when you left. therefore No guns on premisses for employees meant in the building, so just leave it in your car.

It makes no sense that you would have to forfiet your right to carry to and from work, because your employer said no guns. If I am wrong in my above post I would say just leave it in your car and don't say anything to anyone.

Dogs can be trained to alert to drugs, gunpowder in ammo, and explosives. Most guns are loaded!!!
A guy got searched, because a dog alerted to his truck. The dog was able to detect an empty prescription med bottle in the glove box, and the windows were closed.
