Alabama lawmaker's bill would allow employees to bring guns to work so they can shoot the employers that are exploiting them for pennies on the dollar.

Alabama is a right to work state. most/all the laws are to protect companies and employers. the workers are dangling in the breeze, ripe for the pickin'.

companies pay, on average, 3% state income tax in 'Bama. employees pay ~11%. its a win win! (for companies anyways)


this bill sound like another great idea in 'Bama. wink wink.

Smackledorfer: 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.


Fair enough... I always keep a small swiss army knife in the work bag. Mostly for cutting up grape fruits and sandwiches and such. The bottle opener comes in handy, too. And the tweezers make great roach clips.

burninbeaver: In Colorado you can marry your cousin. You can also marry a minor with parental consent. Homosexuals can also marr... wait a minute, that's crazy talk.

Link


if either party is less than 16 years of age at the time of application:

Parental consent as listed above; and
Judicial approval (court order) is required
There are NO EXCEPTIONS


o.O

keylock71: 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.



That is the irony here, it is not a violent state. It is a state filled with people who carry paranoid delusions. There are a few violent areas in the larger cities but there are counties that have not had a homicide in years. The whole state had 301 murders in 2011, Philly had 360 the same year.

Don't the Southeastern states have a higher rate of violent crime per capita than other areas of the country?

Hmm. According to this, Mobile, AL with a population of 255,178 has a higher rate of violent crime per 100,000 people than does Philadelphia which has a population of 1,558,378.

LittleSmitty: 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.


I remember myself and a few guys at work challenging our company over this once. Out of state headquarters, we're a satellite office in FL. It was after one of those mass-shootings. Memo comes down from HQ reminding everyone that firearms of any kind were not allowed on company property, even if locked in employees' trunks.

Us: O RLY? Does the company's general council know Florida law?

Them: Doesn't matter. Guns are bad, mkay?

Us: A quarter of the office has CCW permits and already have guns in our trunks. Your move.


We got a clarification memo a short time later.

I'm making some popcorn for this one. It pits the Business Council of Alabama against the knuckle-draggers over at the NRA.
Peace-loving peons will enjoy watching the proposal work its way through the "system."

Even without this law, how would an employer prevent employees from keeping guns in their cars? How would such a policy be enforced?

From the bill:

Section 1. (a) For the purposes of this section, 10 "motor vehicle" shall mean any automobile, truck, minivan, 11 sports utility vehicle, motorcycle, motor scooter,
