Charls,

Thanks. Looks like I am out of luck. The employee lot also has controlled access. It is behind a fence and last I checked a security guard monitors and records who enters the lot. This includes asking what the visitors business is. Thus the only people who are allowed to enter are those who have business with the company. Since I have an employee sticker on my car and in addition have a second sticker for the much coveted covered parking under the building it would look strange if I tried to park in the visitors lot.

Regards,

Oilman

Charles,

We have two parking lots one for employees and one for visitors.

All of the various folks you mention (non employee) do enter the employee parking lot. Some pull up to the front door, others go around back to the loading docks and others even park under the building in a reserved employee parking lot depending on what their business is.

Non-employees who are not service or delivery people park in the visitors parking lot that is adjacent to the employee lot. Cars in the the visitors lot cannot go from the visitors lot into the employee lot due to metal post barriers. But vistors can walk from the visitors lot into the employee lot.

Charles,

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately this new langauage does apply to my situation. The parking lots at my office complex fulfill all of the requirements you describe (security guards, new fence etc). However, our security gaurds are unarmed and would provide very little deterrent to a BG.

This new language disarms me from the time I leave home until the time I return home.

HB 896 Language Change?

Received this NRA alert:

Also, the House Law Enforcement Committee reported out the following NRA-supported bills this week: HB 896 by Rep. David Farabee (D-Wichita Falls), which now prohibits employers from enforcing "No Firearms" policies against CHLs who keep a handgun in their vehicle at work if the employer does not provide a secure parking area for employees;

The original version of this bill does NOT include the language if the employer does not provide a secure parking area for employees;

Was this language really added to the bill? What is a secure parking area?
