Default CCP & Work?

I'm in the process of getting my concealed carry permit in Tennessee and I've been having some trouble nailing down some answers.

Can you carry your gun to work as long as they aren't prohibited by your employer? I work in a small office and we don't have an anti gun policy.

Thanks!

It doesn't have to be pretty. It just has to always go bang when I pull the trigger.

If there's no rule... Then how can you break it?

Research the state law and make sure your office isn't located on a restricted property, or involved in a business that makes it prohibitive. Example: if you work in a courthouse building, there may be no policy because it should already be understood. Smart to leave it out of the employee handbook? No. Possible? Yes. Same as if your state prohibits carry in a bar.

If the state laws don't apply, and your employer's rules don't apply... Keep calm and carry on.

Thanks for the reply. It is not in our handbook, nor is our building on restricted property or anything related to it.

I'll be packing it on a regular basis.

Thanks again!!

Good for you... now for the important part... KEEP IT QUIET.

A part of CCW that many fail to consider is the "intimidation" factor for the lemmings and sheeple that surround us all.

I've EDC'd a concealed handgun daily for 17 years and in all that time, not 1 single coworker has ever know about my "armed" status.

All it takes is 1 person with a beef against you to make a false claim of brandishing or intimidation and BLAM... here comes the policy banning guns in your office and OH... by the way... Here's your pink slip Johnny!

Some good advice I gleaned from an article in American Handgunner, many years ago... went something like this...

"A gun does not make you a Cop anymore than a Fire Extinguisher makes you a Fireman. Both the Gun and the Fire Extinguisher are simply tools who's purpose is to allow you to survive a deadly situation...UNIT PROFESIONAL HELP ARRIVES."

Words to live by my friend. Good luck and be safe.

Tack

Thanks Tack. I'm not interested in others knowing my protection level. Not their business! And like you said- way too easy for someone to pull a line of b.s.

Thank you for the good advice. I've kept it in mind every day.

Andrew
