Aside from all this argument about the bill the more important question is...By What authority can my employer search my personal vehicle?


My employer will NEVER search my vehicle without a warrant - period end of story. NEVER EVER!!!!! I will leave the property anytime asked.

Simple question:

Do you believe you have the right to ask me to leave *your* property if I have a gun in my car or on my person?


The gun is irrelevant IMO. I have the right to ask you to leave my property for any reason. A business owner, can do the same as long as it is not on a discriminatory basis.

I believe I have the right to ask you to leave my property regardless of whether or not you have a gun. Me having a gun is my right whether I'm on your property or mine. The 2nd amendment doesn't state I can only have a gun on my property, it says I can have a gun, period. If someone wants me off their property all they gotta do is say so. Laws that state I can't have a gun on Any private property go against the 2nd amendment, period. [/i][i]


This pretty much sums up my answer as well DRM. It's pretty clear that we're not going to change one another's viewpoint on this, so best of luck to you as I sign off on this thread. \:\)

Since this just passed the Senate, Might as well bring it up again.


I've dome some more chewing on this, and reading, and chewing...


And I think I've come to the conclusion that this bill is actually closer to my line of thinking than I originally thought.


I'm sticking by the concept that when one man's property (car) is parked *ON* another man's property (real estate), the owner of the car does not have the right to force the real estate owner to let them leave a gun in their car and parked *ON* that real estate property. I think this is a key component of the very concept of freedom in this country.

What I do like about this bill though - is that it removes pretty much all CRIMINAL penalties from the offense. As I have said - the ONLY recourse a real estate property owner should have is to say "leave", there should be no recourse available that includes any criminal punishments, unless of course the person refuses to leave the property.

But yet again, it is a shame this will not apply to ALL people, and only applies to permit holders. That part is, well, absurd.

I think if we can get that done, this is a great step in the right direction.


The next complaint really is not a property rights issue, it is an employment contract issue. I think we run a pretty big risk of damaging our "at will" employment arrangement in this state if we start telling an employer what they can and cannot fire someone for, especially when the employer willfully agrees to certain stipulations when they take the job.

I think the second step to resolving this would be to create a law that an employer can not - under any circumstances - search your car. Again, their only recourse should be to ask that it be removed from their property.

Now, it seems to me that if they can't search your car, and you didn't admit you had a gun in it and nobody saw it, then should they chose to terminate your employment for having a gun in your car, you would then have a legal case for wrongful termination. In essence, I see this as more of a "don't ask, don't tell" type arrangement.

Again - I think removing any and all CRIMINAL penalties for having a gun in your car on someone else's property is a GREAT first move.

Just passed in the house with no ammendments. On its way to the Governor's desk.

Not to distract the conversation, but did they try to pass this last year and did it fail at some point? Lastly, does anyone know if the wording allows it on federally owned property?


It states anywhere the permit holder is legally allowed to be, except where firearms are prohibited by federal law, like oak ridge and TVA nuclear facilities.

The law they tried to pass last year was to allow college employees to carry on campus if I am not mistaken. It may have been a couple of years ago. Either way, this one backs off the carry into the building idea and allows you to have a gun in your vehicle on campus, locked away out of sight.


Yeah, it is really going to help me to have my gun locked in my car in the parking lot 1/2 mile away when some lunatic busts into my classroom and starts shooting while I'm giving a lecture to 150 students. I guess I could politely ask him to stop while I go get my gun, or just throw some dry erase markers and board erasers at him as they are the only "weapons" I'm allowed. Don't get me wrong, this is a small step in the right direction but I am afraid that once this passes and becomes law, many lawmakers will pat themselves on the back and think the job of restoring ALL of our rights to carry and protect ourselves is done.


Remember the post a few weeks ago where it said get a pair of scissors and catch him off guard. Even though he has a gun homeland security says scissors can be just as effective...

Even though my employer says we can't have them in our cars I still lock mine in my center console. A few days ago a store got robbed right down the street from my office and the guys were headed my way to our building and I went to my car and got my gun out and put it in my Carhartt inside pocket and went back in. Nobody knew I did it.
During work hours our front doors are open and all we have between us the lobby is a double glass door.
There was only 3 people in the office and I wasn't going to let 3 armed guys run our way and just sit back and see if they were going to come in our building or not.

I pretty much made the decision I would shoot them and most likely loose my job and get to go home to my wife, or be shot for not having my gun and be buried at 25 years old.
I chose my gun and wife...

X3 if you are carrying correctly and safely, the chance of anyone finding out is miniscule. While the chance of actually needing it is also miniscule, the consequence of not having it if you need it can be deadly.
