    Do you OC at work and what do you do for a living?

    Just curious if your employment allows you to OC? How did you go about starting to OC at work?

    Obviously officers and military do, but I'm curious about other careers?

    Yes, at retired 'work' in the home as a homemaker and house husband house keeper.

    I retired from federal civil service of twenty-five years with DoN/DoD, so I can say with some small authority that most military is not armed and, apart from police functionaries, none in the US.

    As soon as gun carry of any sort was legal in SC, where I retired, I put on a gun. Coincidentally I was involved with my PD as an activist citizen.

    Oh i'd love to find an OC friendly workplace. But here in Seattle, it's SO liberal, even stating you're pro 2A can be grounds for dismissal

    Really? I've been there a few times, but I can't OC there as I'm out of state and your state doesn't reciprocate with mine, plus I've never transported my firearm through the airport and I'm apprehensive about it.

    Your state is beyond gorgeous though, I've been to the ice caves, heather lake, a few of your waterfalls...so pretty there!!

    You don't need a "mother may I" card to OC in WA.

    The military, except Police on duty, are disarmed on our bases!!

    In Montana an employer cannot restrict your right to carry UNLESS they provide equal or better security

    Welcome to OCDO brianbonner.

    Please take note that military bases are not normally subject to state law or local ordinances. Such bases are under the rule of federal law and military authority.

    I could not carry when I was in the service...not at any base I worked at or visited. But you know that the military is a socialist society right?
