(Montgomery Advertiser)   Alabama lawmaker's bill would allow employees to bring guns to work, which in that state is about as necessary as passing a law saying it's okay to marry your cousin   (montgomeryadvertiser.com) divider line 60

I fully support this law. Already this morning, someone has taken the cupcake I was saving for after lunch right out of my desk, and no one saw a thing. God damned savages.

Link SFW ling on why people should not bring guns to work.

If I had to go to a workplace filled with people from Alabama I'd want a gun too. To shoot myself.

So this guy doesn't believe in letting JOB CREATORS control their own businesses and land? Doesn't he have any respect for property rights?

(yes, I know he's not a Republican)

It will allow them to leave their firearms secured in their vehicles.

Huh...likely guaranteeing that the rattiest white-trashiest vehicles in the lot are guaranteed to have at least a c-note per break-in.

That's great thinking guys! Let me know how that works out for you.
 
2012-11-26 10:54:37 AM
Just amend the bill to make it a capital offence to shoot anyone who is a fan of an opposing SEC team. Book it. Done.
 
2012-11-26 10:55:20 AM
Heh... People who feel the need to carry a gun with them everywhere they go crack me up.

Good for them, I guess. Personally, I've never felt the need to carry a gun with me to work or out on the town even though I love going shooting when I've got some down time. Seems like a needless escalation to me unless one happens to deal with criminals or violent people on a daily basis. I'm 41, owned firearms since I was 18, and have been able to handle almost every confrontation in my life with words and in very few cases (when I was younger and a drinker) with my fists and feet.

*shrug* Like I said... Good for them.

Girl from Bama wants to go to the prom and asks for dad for $75 to buy a new dress.
He replies, $75 you gonna have to do something for me and whips it out.
She replies, you are pig. I am going to the prom and never coming back.
She goes down on him and sits and yells yuck, your dick tastes like shiat.
Dad says, yeah your brother wanted to go the prom too

We've had a similar law in Florida for a few years. CCW holders cannot be prohibited by their employer from having a firearm locked in their car. Prior to that, employers could fire you for having a firearm on company property. The law prohibits that, but you have to have a valid CCW.
 
2012-11-26 11:17:08 AM
Wait, doesn't this take away the rights of the property owner, though?

I carry a knife. If you rob me with a gun I give you my money. If someone starts a fistfight with me I'll stab them.

/and before you call me a pussy, you just admitted you deliberately lower your self-defense state by leaving your gun at home, presumably because of the inconvenience of carrying it and how generally unnecessary it is. I see no reason why should be forced to get good at a physical confrontation just in case. This way I need much less training, time, and effort to defend myself.

//actually I'm ok with being called a pussy.

Felgraf: Wait, doesn't this take away the rights of the property owner, though?


A bit, but it says locked up and out of sight in one's car, so I don't see how this will have any significant impact on the operations of a business.

It may have an impact on how and why people rob cars though. NRA sticker? Lets hit that car up for a gun :D

DNRTA but my understabding of concealed carry laws state you can bring yer guns to werk... just as long as the boss gives you the ok.

Or you can defend yourself with red staplers and artisnal sharpened pencils.

"If someone's that crazy, hopefully the sheriff didn't give a pistol permit in the first place,"

I wonder if the law allows employers to keep track of which employees have pistol permits.

I just think there are far more important things to be addressing than whether people can bring their gun to their workplace. Has nothing to do with D or R.

If the multiple things you are doing do no good, your ability to multitask is of dubious merit.

Smackledorfer: I carry a knife. If you rob me with a gun I give you my money. If someone starts a fistfight with me I'll stab them.


Isn't that escalating pretty significantly? A knife in a fistfight is pretty "assault with a deadly weapon" and probably less defensible in court than drawing a gun.

Ummm, OK. Good for you, too. : )

I live in a city with a fairly high violent crime rate for its size (Fall River, MA crime stats). I can count the number of confrontations I've had with strangers or coworkers in the last 10 years on one hand. None of them turned violent or physical.

Like I said, it's just a needless escalation, as far as I'm concerned, and, to be honest, it's something I very rarely think about.

Alabama must be a violent place, I guess.

Well I'm guess the person punching him is also trying to rob him. If he is, then no court in the US is going to try him for assault for defending himself from a mugging.

I don't start physical confrontations and avoid non-physical ones. I don't know the specifics of the law on this one, but I assure you I'll be articulating the hell out of the fact that whoever is kicking my ass did so with intent to cause serious bodily harm.

Is it escalation? Maybe. If they really are intent on causing me serious damage, then I absolutely have a right to use a knife - I could use a gun. If they are merely intent on giving me a light bruising then there might be a legal grey area where I'm supposed to let myself get beaten up, but I doubt it. Still, stabbing someone who only wanted to rough me up a bit is an escalation - but so is starting a fight. I have no respect nor empathy for someone who starts a physical confrontation with someone weaker than them. fark that.

keylock71: I can count the number of confrontations I've had with strangers or coworkers in the last 10 years on one hand. None of them turned violent or physical.


Same, but keeping tactical knives in my pockets costs me nothing. No effort, no money, and a knife can and has come in handy for a wide variety of situations that had nothing to do with fighting. Carrying a gun, otoh, costs money, increases risk (especially if someone knows you have it, they might want to rob it because it is a valuable item), interferes with things like an unplanned trip to the bar, etc.
