A group of Oklahoma employers are making a novel argument in opposing a state law requiring employers to allow workers to have guns in locked vehicles where they work.

If company policy denies anyone the right to defend themselves and they are killed or injured because of this policy the company should be liable for both punitive and actual damages. Get a good Lawyer!

Windwalkers Iddy is a good one. If the employers win then they should be held liable for there employee's safty.

If ONE (count 'em ONE) employee who could have carried a firearm for self-defense is injured or killed by a bad guy on the way to or from work because of these inane corporate policies, perhaps they (or their estate) should sue the company for multi-millions of $. The companies are creating a dangerous working environment by banning firearms everywhere (which have demonstrated high value in protecting people for self-defense, deterring crime, and posing virtually no risk). If all that the corporations with these incredibly stupid "no weapons" policies understand is lawyers, legalisms, and money perhaps someone should hit them there.

I've thought about this Thread a lot over the week end.
What if you've left for work and decided to stop at a convenence store to buy a breakfast Item or gas.
You walk in and the store is being robbed and the robber has a gun.
You also have a gun BUT it's at home because your employer doe's not allow guns on there property.
The robber decides he doesn't want witness'es so bang your dead.
Oviously the odds of not becomeing a crime statistic is greatly reduced if you would had been able to carry your handgun.
But because of your employer your not able to defend yourself.
The Employer should have to pay restitution to your family if your killed and to you if you become permently disabled from being shoot, stabbed, clubbed.

I agree, A.H. The company that employed the injured or killed person best pray that I don't set on the jury.
