    Guns Legal Now In Texas' Work Place Parking Lots

    Texas senate yesterday passed in to law the prevention of any and all companys from enforcing restrictions against employees from bringing handguns and ammo if concealed in the vehicles and company parking lots. It passed 31-0!!! God Bless Texas

    Yay! This is a major boon for concealed carry license owners. It allows them to disarm and arm themselves when going to or leaving work. Beforehand you had to leave your firearm at home or not say anything about it if you had it in the car. Kinda defeated the purpose of a CCL.

    This is really only something that benefits the CCL members. Criminals or those bent on having a shoot-out field day don't really care if you can keep a legally registered and secured firearm in their car at work.

    This is unreasonable. Employers have every right to set restrictions on what employees can bring to the workplace. The right to own a gun does not mean you can bring it onto other peoples property against their will. If you want to bring a gun to work, find an employer who allows it or just park your car off the campus. I find the undermining of property rights disturbing.

    Do you give up your fundamental human rights when you go to work?

    Life, Liberty, pursuit of happiness?

    None of which means much if you get murdered in the employee parking lot, for lack of the means to defend yourself.

    I seem to recall the 1st Amendment right of freedom of religion has been seen by the Supreme Court to still exist in the workplace, as long as your religious expression is not disruptive to the workplace.

    Like it or not, the 2nd Amendment is just as important as the 1st.

    Tell me how much it means when a psycho is allowed to kill everyone he comes across in a garage when he is allowed to carry a firearm?

    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.

    .

    Yup, just like the law allowed the two Columbine boys to carry guns in school...oh wait a minute, that's illegal....gosh, I guess those psycho killers don't obey laws about not carrying firearms.

    What in the HELL makes you think that some psycho, bent on mass murder, stops outside the door with the "No Guns Allowed" sign and says:

    "Darn! I was going to go in there and kill twenty people, but I'm not allowed to bring a gun inside! Crap! I'll have to go somewhere else..."

    THINK for a minute. They call them criminals, because they don't obey the law??

    (PS if you're talking about people WITH carry permits, the violent crime rate for CCW holders is virtually zero.)


    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.
    You know nothing about me bud, and that was uncalled for. My best friend was murdered in a robbery at his store when I was 24, for starters. I saw all kinds of crap as a cop, for another. "Cold" is not what I am; passionate about the right to life and the right to defend that life, is more like it.

    All rights are not created equal. They exist in a hierarchy. Clearly, the right to self defense is greater than private property rights.
