I saw one like the above, that is bolted down from a tray that holds the box and it seemed like the best option but where to mount it seems to be the problem.

The cable boxes seem more convenient but less secure.

I do not understand "Zero Tolerance" policies anywhere. To me, it's implemented so that no one has to be an adult and make a judgement call based on circumstance. As long as we have zero tolerance, no one gets any sort of trial or get to explain their circumstance. A woman who has a stalker shouldn't defend herself? A man threatened by a crazed neighbor and has a restraining order has no reason to carry a gun? Zero tolerance is a coward's way out.
You have discerned the situation precisely. Avoid making any rational decision that results in taking personal responsibility.

State law prevents them from making a policy forbidding guns in cars. Otherwise they would.

I'm with you about there not being a good solution. She would almost be better off parking on the street and keeping the valets out of her car. I have a strong suspicion that there is more to that than meets the eye.
Brandishing depends on state law. In Oklahoma they recognize the car as an extension of the home. The law about what an employer or store owner can and can not do is pretty clear. Storing a gun in the trunk to comply with a declared gun free zone is not brandishing.

When I am out and about and have to leave my handgun in my car, I have some police handcuffs with one end mounted around the frame of the seat, and the other end through the trigger guard of my revolver. (empty of course) and then tucked in one of them soft gun pouches like pictured in Witmeba's post to keep it more out of sight and to help keep the dirt out.

They would have to either cut through the seat frame, or remove seat or steal car to get to it in open public parking lots.

Anna, good plan! I can see you coming out to the car after shopping and some genius criminal is trying to figure out how to get the gun unfastened! Make it look like a puzzle and you can keep them entertained for hours.

Picking handcuffs isn't all that difficult, though the double lock on it can be a bit of a pain sometimes.

If it's not obvious from just looking into the car from the outside, it's more likely that someone breaking into her car would be going for something else, or the entire car (unless it's someone that knows she keeps a firearm in her car).

Have you thought about getting some nice furry cuff covers to protect the gun finish? <grin>

I'm sorry, but I just couldn't resist that one.
