Back to the original topic, I find it odd that the lakes are posted 30.06 but the power plants themselves are not. I was in industrial sales until I retired recently. All the power plants from LaGrange to Marble Falls to Christine were my accounts. I always look for 30.06 signs and recall that only San Miguel in Christine was posted. I never carried on my person while making sales calls because, while not against the law, they did have various “no unauthorized firearms” signs so would be violating their company policy. If found out, I’d likely be banned from doing business there which would significantly effect my income. I did have one in the Console Vault in my truck though.
An interesting related side story. Right after open carry went into effect, I was going to meet one of my customers at one of their plants (company will remain nameless). I arrived early so parked next to guard shack to wait for him to show. It was January so was wearing a jacket and have a cell phone case on my belt, partially covered by the jacket. I was standing outside the truck when one of the security guards approached and asked if I had a CHL. (Had to provide drivers license to enter plant and didn’t know if they had access to CHL records like law enforcement). Somewhat puzzled, I answered “yes, but how’d you know”. He said, “oh, we don’t care if you have a gun in your truck, probably everyone who works here does, we’re just trying to figure out how to deal with this new open carry law”. He saw my cell phone holster and wasn’t sure.
The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
