... about allowing firearms:
Across the country, employers are grappling with new laws that bring guns closer to the office.
Starbucks Corp. SBUX +1.83% made headlines recently when its chief executive asked customers to keep guns out of company cafes. His appeal thrust the company into local and nationwide debates about the role of private business and public gun laws.
Today, some 22 states have passed laws that limit property owners’ ability to ban firearms in vehicles in parking areas, according to the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, a San Francisco-based gun-control advocacy group.
It's always been my opinion that employers can proscribe, for their employees, firearms inside their premises.
It's also been my opinion that those businesses that operate as a corporation of LLC should be required to follow state laws regarding the carriage of firearms. After all, if you're going to take the protections provided by the state, you have to allow what the state allows.
