    How does a locked up gun increase personal safety?

      It doesn’t and I think that is the point stupid as it is. Plus, “I think it’s necessary so people will have peace of mind when they’re traveling to and from work,” is fairly asinine as well. Just lock it in your trunk and don’t take it into the office. I am for gun rights but there has to be limits on it at some point.

    I would prefer employees bring a good work ethic and use their brains at work.

    I would not feel safer knowing some of my co workers were bringing loaded guns to work. Even if they are locked up they would still have to carry the guns into the office.

    Don’t take your guns to town, son;
    Leave your guns at home, Bill.

    Although I fully understand the concerns and fears of some regarding workers having a weapon at work, how do you know that the person sitting next to you does not have a gun already? With the number of small concealable weapons on the market it is very easy for a person to have a gun in a purse or briefcase and for no one to be the wiser.

    Provided they know how to properly use a weapon I for one would much rather have a normal person next to me with a weapon.
    As in all matters there is always two sides to the story.

    You can’t stop crazy from buying guns. But if you made it where you have to complete a course to be licensed in order to buy a gun, maybe that would weed out some of the crazies. As for taking guns to work, some already do–legal or not. I use to work at a convenience store where the owner had a pistol under the counter at all times. He told me not to use it to protect the money–only use it if I feel I need to protect myself. I never had to, but having that option while working late hours on weekends gave me some comfort. Maybe each work place should have a couple of designated shooters in case of a nut or robbery. But if everyone brought guns, I think that is just asking for trouble. Passions run to high sometimes and arguments may turn deadly too quickly if a gun was nearby.

    I support second amendment right to carry a firearm however there are certain venues where the unrestricted presence of firearms constitute increased risk and the workplace is on such venue.
    Just as a property owner should have the ability to prohibit firearms on their property a company should have the authority to restrict the possession of firearms by other than individuals they so designate.
    Experience has taught that the issuance of a weapons permit by responsible authorities does not guarantee the proper future use of that firearm. Even when background checks are involved. While past behavior is an indicator of future behavior it is not a guarantee of future behavior.
