I'd rather like an "idiot-free zone".

I already do a job where we are better armed than all the cops in the state.

This isn't a political issue, it is a safety issue, and gun-free zones are inherently unsafe.

I was going to make a joke about my political opposition - but don't want the mods to delete the post...

I do and I feel safer than if not. We have many security measures in place such as work badge access doors.

Unless the gun free zone has some sort of security pat down/detector it's rather easy to bring a handgun in if it concerns you.

I've never asked an employer what they think, never seen a sign one way or the other adressing guns, never give it any thought. I don't go about my life under the assumption that I might need to shoot someone so it's not an issue. I'm far more likely to have to give someone CPR than shoot them, and I even let that certification run out years ago. Besides, I have a tiny purse and no place to put a gun. I don't even like having jewelry on.

I don't eat at restaurants or shop at stores that are opposed to concealed carry so NO I would not work for a company that is gun free or restricts carry.

Default Would you work at a company that advertises "Gun Free Zone"?

Man, if nothng else this thread highlights how different people think when it comes to guns. And not just about guns but life in general. Not going somewhere that doesn't allow concealed carry? That is seriously one of the last things that would ever cross my mind. But then I'm not big on "boycotts" over people holding different ideas than me.
