    Victory for Gun Owners

    Indiana law now allows people with a LTCH to keep a handgun in your car at work. Some companies do not allow this practice, state law now makes it legal.

    Hmmm....

    Actually, my understanding is that the new law makes it illegal for businesses to prevent employees from keeping firearms/handguns in their vehicles at work. This is a big distinction, since there were/are businesses that already allow this. You always could legally have a gun in your vehicle, however your place of employment may have had a policy against it. So now its not a matter of you are no longer breaking the law (you never were in the first place), but that said place of employment would now be breaking the law if they retained a policy preventing you from doing so [keeping a handgun in your vehicle].

    Hi guys!

    Were all friends here!

    My understanding of that law is that a employee cannot be fired specifically for having a gun in their locked vehicle in a public parking lot.

    There are companies that were excempted, Lilly being one.

    Also remember Indiana is a right to work state. This means you can be fired at anytime no reason required.

    So if your employer's policy is no guns and they somehow find out you have one in your vehicle they can whack you as long as they don't specifically state that's why.
