    Pro gun jobs?

    Does anyone know of any businesses that allow you to carry while working?

    Where I work I can carry openly. But I guess being a self employed firearms instructor will do that for ya. lol

    Several gun stores around here. Other than that, I am not aware of any.

    That leads into a question I've had for a couple days but didn't want to start a thread for it...With concealed carry not having been around in WI. I'm guessing a vast majority of workplaces don't have any mention in their handbooks about carrying. Or do they normally put a catch all phrase like "weapon" in there? If there is no mention and nothing is said to you otherwise, would you be under any obligation to ask before CC'ing at your workplace?

    If it were not in the hand book, and no sign posted, I would never ask. I would just carry, and not talk about it.
    All of the places I have worked have had a "no weapon" rule in the hand book... It was a large part of the reason I was "let go" from Johnson Controls. I would make the same choice again...

    I work in the family business for my father. We were recently updating our employee manual and our "consultant" recommended we add language prohibiting firearms on the premises. I told my dad he should fire me right then and there because I would continue to have a firearm in my car, whether or not it was in the handbook. We compromised and the rule states you cannot have a firearm on company premises unless you have permission from the owner. It looks like the new law will require us to re-write that part to only require permission to bring the firearm into the building as the law does not allow companys from prohibiting firearms in the employee's car on company premises.

    I am going to be interested in seeing how our church handles this. The senior pastor is a big time hunter. I know at least a couple of the elders are gun guys.
