State trumps company policy, but it's worth clarifying that federal trumps state, to the effect that the same thing is not true for employee parking lots that are part of federal properties, correct? And especially Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) parking lots, where many different rules apply. Do correct me if I'm mistaken.
I believe you are correct. This is why I can't keep my firearm in my vehicle when I visit customer locations (ie Federal Prisons).

I know a guy whose company sent out an email titled "Workplace Safety" that said unless otherwise provided by law, <deleted> workplaces include the buildings in which we work as well as the parking areas of <deleted> workplaces. This means that you are prohibited from keeping a licensed firearm in your personal or rented vehicle while at a <deleted> workplace.

Admittedly it is a global company and the email also included that caviat about the law. To be safe he emailed the company's legal counsel referencing SB 321. Counsel agreed that LTC holder is exempt from that policy in this state and that email does not apply.



It pays know the law! You could get run over if you don't.

I did not think you had to be a LTC holder for the law to apply.
