    As a carpenter I enter into people's homes to perform my work. While I could carry without the homeowner likely finding out, an anti-gun homeowner would very likely fire my outfit if they found out any of us were carrying.

    While the homeowner may not have grounds to sue, they would take their business elsewhere, so my boss could say "you can carry in the shop, but not onto a client’s property".

    I don't recommend doing electrical work while carrying either.

    It's a shame guns have a negative stigma.

    Depends on where you live. Take the UK, they have job protection laws for criminals. IF you shoot someone who breaks into your home... you go to jail. WTF is up with that

    True. Unfortunately its like that in the UK now.

    I was, of course, referring to the USA in general, conservative States in particular, and the great Republic of Texas most definately.

    In your example it is the homeowner who is already defending himself.

    In Texas, it is assumed that anyone braking into your home after dark is making an assault on your life.

    What do you tell the victims of his assault?

    Sorry but we allow people to carry firearms to work. Maybe if it was a family that got killed you would think differently. Unless you are a cold asshole that thought "Well who cares if my wife was killed by someone allowed to carry a firearm to work, I mean she was just my wife".

    Maybe you are just one of those folks.
    When was the last time a psycho cared about what was legal and what was not? I'm more concerned about law abiding people being able to defend themselves against psychos. When you hear about workplace killings, do you feel a sense of satisfaction when no one was able to get to a weapon to stop the killer?

    "Yeah, too bad 20 people were murdered, but at least no one had a gun in their car in the parking lot to defend themselves!"

    I'm curious. This law seems to unsurp the rights of the business owner. If I am reading this correctly, if the business owner does not want an employee to carry a weapon, this law negates that.

    So, for consistency's sake, those of you that agree with this, do you also agree that the government has the right to tell business owners that they cannot allow someone to smoke in their place of business?

    For clarity, this law only allows a lawfully owned weapon to be properly stored in the employee's vehicle while that vehicle is on business property.

    This law does not allow employees to carry into the business

    You mean in their car while parked on in their parking lot.

    Thank you for the clarification. This seems entirely consistent to me and I see no problem with it.

    Re: Guns Legal Now In Texas' Work Place Parking Lots

    I do not see a real problem with this if they have permits or whatever.

    Now.. If I could just get my crappy workplace to understand that my smoking out in my very own car is not near as bad as my right to carry a Glock or whatever to work?

    Honestly, some people can have guns in their cars at work but I am not suppose to smoke a cig? What is wrong with this picture and my police state?
