My job forbids them. Even on property. Ky state law makes it illegal to tell you you can't have them in your vehicle. I drive 270 miles one way to work.

Depends on the state.... In Florida, you may have a firearm in your car except in very few exceptions: Schools (including colleges) and prisons come to mind. Our laws forbid employers from discriminating against anyone having a gun in their car.

That's why I said could. It depends where you work and your state and even possibly city.

If there is an expressed policy of no firearms on the work premises, then I would not carry at work. The parking lot is another situation entirely. Many states have recently enacted laws that prevent an employer from prohibiting firearms from their parking lots, and that may apply to your location.

My CCW is important to me. I don't go anywhere without my firearm, and I'd hate to jeopardize my future ability to carry by doing something careless that I might regret. I even disarm just to drop a piece of mail in the Post Office. It's silly, but I didn't make the rules. I know, people say "concealed means concealed," but I'm not taking the chance.
Good point. Iowa is a right to work state. I guess you have the right to carry at work...they have the right to no longer need your services.

I was jealous of other members' freedom to carry at work, and more or less hoping that state signage laws applied the same for employers.

every state has different laws as to what an employer may do in regarding possesion of a firearm on company property. in Texas, they consider your vehicle an extension of your home in reference to the Castle Law, so therefor i carry a pistol with me everywhere.

check your state laws regarding firearm carry and see what they stipulate as in those laws.
