    Hopefully, you also sent an e-mail to their international headquarters, explaining why you don't eat at their establishments anymore.

    The almighty dollar is all that matters to them, and Mickey D's has a lot of competition these days from Wendy's etc. Gun owners need to stop eating there, and let their international headquarters know why.

    I work for a world wide corporatoin who does not allow weapons of any sort in any of their buildings or even on their property. I can't keep any sort of weapon in my truck and park it in their parking lot. I'm technically not suppose to carry the knife I keep in my front pocket. I disagree with it 100% but at the same time I need the job so I can keep my wife warm and dry and keep some food on the table when hunting seasons out.

    I worked for a rock quarry for awhile, and they have the same policy. Breaking this rule would result in immediate termination. They never searched (nor did they have the right) our trucks but if they did then they would be forced to overlook it. Of the 20 or so guys working 1st shift, at least 10 of us had guns in our vehicles at all times. Several guys had more than one gun at a time. We never talked about it around the supervisors and they never asked.

    This is common in the world of construction & contracting. I have NEVER worked for a company that said it was "A-Ok" to carry, but I frequently have worked in some third world sh!tholes within our borders.

    Oakland, Sacramento, Indianapolis ( the North Section ), Dallas/Ft. Worth, Chicago. Never once was I in one of those places without every member of my crew packing.

    We used to carry two First Aid kits on the trucks. One was the large size, truck kit. Had all the usual stuff, plus tourniquets, rubber things for putting over the mouth of a victim to avoid AIDS, all the good stuff. Then we all carried the little 6" by 10" "personal" first aid kits in the cabs of the trucks with us. Metal box, two clasps, all white with a big red cross on the front.

    The nice thing about these is, they can go anywhere, they look completely normal to have around you at all time, and with a little foam and some time, a full sized pistol ( like a 1911 ) and 2 extra mags fit in each and every one of them. Nobody was ever the wiser. If someone ever needed a bandaid, you told them what bin door to open on the truck and no one ever thought differently about it. :cool: Camouflaged in plain site.... :D

    The good thing about residential construction is that if your building a house in the boondocks, you can shoot on your lunch break. We used to sight-in our rifles and shotguns at lunch, since most of our jobs were outside of city limits. City limits of a town of less than 10,000. We always got permission from homeowners. Hell, on one jobsite, not only did the 60 year old homeowner give us permission to shoot but he came back at lunch with his M-1 Garand and various other WWII weapons.

    I work in an office... If a person came into this office with a gun they could cripple the largest segment of this corporation. Where I work customer service center for the world, we never close! This is the type of place that has back ups for the back up for the back up system on the phones, faxes, computers, etc.... One man, one gun could shut this place down. Our security isn't allowed to carry a gun! IMO, it's completely nuts... This is a sucessfully company in a very difficult time, they highly qualify as a target.

    I think it's completely and utterly stupid that a company would have the balls to tell someone that while at work, thier not allowed to carry and make themselves feel safe. This situation is made even worse when that same company won't hire an armed security company to keep thier people safe. I hopefully start a new job in the next couple of weeks as a security guard at the local casino/hotel. I asked if the guards were allowed to carry and was told "absolutely not", well my gun is staying in my truck whether they like it or not.

    Condoms.....I think that’s what you were thinking of.;):D. I also work for a nation wide pharmacy chain and we're not allowed to carry and guns or knives at all. Like you guys though I think it’s stupid. If you get caught with a gun or knife your fired instantly. Luckily I work in a good area there are many people though that work in the trashy dump that is Philadelphia and they're constantly getting robbed. A few months ago a worker was shot in the thigh area just missing her femur artery. Maybe if the workers could pull guns on these worthless punks then they wouldn't get robbed as much. Even better shoot some of them dead and kill two birds with one stone. You take some worthless trash off the streets and you get the reputation of not being afraid to pull the guns out and open fire. If it was up to me and if it was legal I would stow an Ak47 under the counter. Next time one of those punks come to rob you they'll think twice when they have a 7.62mm semi auto Ak47 shoved in their face.

    Oh please. If the cops ain't at Dunkin Doughnuts they are at McD's. stuffing their fat face at least in my area they are.

    My hometown had 2 major truck stops both had CAT backup systems to power the fuel pumps and computers and lights as well. Where do you think all the cops were when we had a power outage not in town at the 7-11 that was getting robbed no they were out at the two places that had power and lights. I think the cops were afraid of the dark to tell you.

    Does the "Castle Law" allow me to keep a gun in my vehicle? I've always wondered if a gun in my vehicle was legal when I was picking my kids up from school. I intend to install a lock box for my guns in my Jeep. They can't look in there if I can't find my key. I need the box for when I go inside places I can't carry my gun and the top is off of the Jeep. I'm considering raising my seats 1" and mounting a box below. When I get in, I can unlock the box or put my gun in a holster.

    I guess I need to ask some local cop friends.

    I doubt that McDonalds is truthfully anti-gun. I think they just stated it to jump on a bandwagon.

    I still won't eat there just because their food is horrible for your health.

    Many companies have the "no guns"rule for employees because of fears of liability. That's their call. But when they attempt to regulate the patrons (me) that's my call- and I will let them know why they just lost my trade. As far as work, my office is in my home, and there are about 60 firearms in my office.

    I don't care if McDonalds is anti gun or not. I've been anti-McDonalds for many years. I don't like anything about the chain. They have become another item on my "don't care list". ;)

    Asking local Cop friends is the WORST thing you can do. They have "minimal" legal training at best. BTW: It's not Castle Law" it's called Castle Doctrine, and it has NOTHING to do with guns in cars. You need to read HB1815, this is your reference to conceal & carry in a motor vehicle.

    Your best bet would be to get the latest edition of Texas Concealed Handgun Laws... it's free from Texas DPS.

    I've never been much of a McD fan either. If they closed their doors tomorrow, I wouldn't give a crap.
