Re: Firearm in vehicle at work

So to answer a few questions:

1. I work for a liquor distillery, so in theory that could be a caveat to the law, however I don’t think it would apply to being in a vehicle. When I worked at a bar there was no statutory rules about not keeping firearms in vehicles.

2. The parking lot is fenced in as well as the main facility, requiring a guarded gate, and then keypass entry from the parking lot into the facilities.

3. I managed to buy myself some time, and have not signed anything yet. If I do end up signing I will absolutely make sure to keep a copy.

4. The plan so far was to buy a safe and “lose the keys” while at work in order to avoid conflict.

Thanks everyone for the feedback so far

Firearm in vehicle at work

Not sure where this goes but seemed political enough in nature to go here.

I work for a company outside of Austin that maintains a strict no firearms policy. There are level 3 armed security guards at every gate entrance, that think they are cops and take their job way to seriously. Recently we were required to sign a sheet saying that we were not allowed to have any firearms (among other things such as drugs) in our vehicle, and that we are subject to a personal and vehicle search at any time. If found in posession (locked in your vehicle) you will face termination.

If I understand correctly, an employee has the right to keep firearms in their vehicle, in the state of Texas. Am I correct? What can I do to fight this? I really like my job and do not want to lose it over a bogus rule that doesn’t follow Texas law to begin with.
