    Here are the issues I have with this piece of legislation: It does not prevent your employer from searching your car, finding the weapon, and firing you on the spot. It does not prevent businesses from banning the firearm on their property, even if you have it in the trunk.
    Not very effective.

    Some folks think that a public business can make an employee do anything it wants on their property ... I disagree

    I'm curious what you mean by "public" business? Whether open to the public or private, if it's private property they CAN make employees abide by their policies. Are you referring to a business that's on public property? or simply a private business open to the public? There's a difference.
