    I work for a non-profit organization that accepts about 1 million dollars from the state every year. Does this in anyway make it wrong for the corporationto prohibit the carry of firearms on their property?

    Thanks for any info.

    They may be non-profit but the money still pays the rent for the work space. This situation is no different than any other job. The people in charge can ban weapons if they like.

    Just because the state pumps a few bucks their way.. they have no obligation to do anything the state may like. If I donated 'one billion dollars...' (DR Evil) and I only want attractive females to work there... it is not going to happen. They would be happy to take my cash but how they spend it and run the corporation is none of my business.

    This might be a little different if I was a stock holder shelling out that much cash.

    It was worth a shot.

    I work for Thomas Jeffersons Poplar Forest. Everything here is being redone as close to the way Jefferson would have done it. I just didn't know that Jefferson was this anti-gun.

    poplar forest is a cool place. jeffersons octagonal summer home. we went there when the renovations first started. the entire house was gutted at the time, survey lines were still being pulled. (this was around 93-95 or so. I was in A-school at UVA at the time and was taking an Architecture of Jefferson class. It was a cool class as we got to visit the Dome room of the Rotunda at Monticello as well. what do you do there?

    I am a restoration carpenter. There have been some major changes since you have visited. The east wing is close to completion. The house is complete with the exception of interior trim. We are planning to do all the trim starting in 2009. It will all be done with period hand tools. Can you say popeye arms. I better eat my spinach.

    I have seen one guest printing pretty bad. Have not seen any open carry. Not sure what they would say if they encountered it.

    I have thought about carrying. The employee handbook states no illegal guns or other weapons. Maybe I will give it a shot before my departure.

    Your handgun isn't illegal, though.
