The parking lot law applies to all employees regardless of whether they have a CHL or not (with a few minor exceptions). Violating a 30.06 sign is a class C misdemeanor after 1/1/16, unless you refuse to leave. Violating a 30.07 sign is a "nothing" until 1/1/16 because the statute doesn't come in effect until then, then it's a class C, until you refuse to leave.SlowDave wrote:No, I didn't forget that. That's why I referenced it above (and in the original). But the parking lot law specifically applies to CHLs, not to those carrying under MPA authority. But if I'm reading correctly, the 30.06/30.07 specifically apply to CHL, not MPA. So, in the end, I think both are able to have a gun in the car.
Part of the problem is that I think 30.06/30.07 was written with the intention of posting a building. This place is a large campus with many buildings, roads, and parking lots. So gets a bit messy.
Again, the main big difference is the possibility of getting caught with a weapon in a building being a violation of company policy (for employees) vs. a Class A misdemeanor for everyone.
30.06 is not applicable to anyone in a vehicle whether they have a CHL or not. Theoretically a 30.07 sign WILL be enforceable even if you're in a vehicle, and will be a class C until you're told to leave.
If an employer posts 30.06/7 on a building, and an employee violates it they are committing a class C misdemeanor (after 1/1/2016) and they can be fired, regardless of the parking lot law, as it only covers vehicles. A non-employee is committing a class C (after 1/1/2016).
