Another fight over who controls the glove compartment of your car

No bill yet.

Thursday, January 4, 2007, 09:28 AM

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

We hear tell that the National Rifle Association plans another, but bigger, push to pass a bill this session that would allow employees to keep firearms in their automobiles on company parking lots. Many companies currently bar employees from carrying weaponry onto corporate turf.

The bill would set up the re-match of a classic fight between two conservative principles: the right of property owners to control their land without government interference, versus the right of individuals to preserve their right to bear arms in a society that’s increasingly dominated by the rules of the workplace.

This time, to avoid provoking big corporations, the bill would exempt companies that have their parking lots secured by gates and fences. Opposition from corporations did the bill in last year.

I used to work for Ford. Our parking lots were fenced and had gates...gates that were very rarely locked. According to this, the company could still bar employees from having guns in their vehicles.

I didn't see anything in the article stating the lots had to be maintained in a secure status, only that they be capable of being secured. Sounds like a loophole. A BIG loophole...!
