Apples and oranges.
I disagree. This can be seen as a question of what container I carry my gun in. Under the current law, if the container is my car, the property owner cannot ban me from carrying at work, but if the container is my briefcase, he can. I only see a difference in the size of the container.
Can you explain why you see some other difference that makes the positions so different?
Very simple to me. It's the same reason folks are allowed to carry in their car unlicensed under MPA, for most practical purposes your car is an extension of your home. Your briefcase is not.
Of course ultimately the law is the law and it doesn't really matter what you or I think should be or shouldn't be. What matters is what can and can not be passed legislatively.
