View Full Version : Carrying in the workplace?

07-01-2006, 2:33 PM
After researching this topic, I'm left a tad confused. What are the laws in regards to carrying a handgun at work? Or is it not even possible? My family owns a furniture store which unfortunately is in a fairly bad part of town. We've been held up several times in the past which made me think about this question.

Just to clarify:

1. We do not own the property, but we lease it.
2. I do not own the business, but I was wondering if I'm able to carry?
3. If it's possible for me to carry on my person, can it be concealed?

All legal and lawsuit liability aside, It's legal to carry open or concealed in your home or place of business. If you don't have the business owners permission to carry, you'd probably get fired for violating company weapons at work policy.;)

I don't think RVs and cabs qualify as homes or places of business if they are on public property.

I'm not a lawyer, read the actual law.

with the business owner's permission, you may carry any way you like in that business.
