    What exactly are you saying? Legal for companies to restrict firearms in POV’s in the parking lot? Kinda cryptic. Lol

    There are numerous ways a person can be terminated without breaking the law, such as violating company policy, especially in an 'at will' employment state...

    "Employment at will" does NOT give employers carte blanche. This is a common misperception.

    Actually they can fire you if they have a 'rule' regarding certain weapons or firearms on THEIR property. I work for an oil company that allows concealed carry permit holders to leave their weapons in their vehicles but do not have provisions in their rules to allow weapons under provisions of the Castle Doctrine carry provisions.

    Actually, no. As long as you are abiding by the state law, they cannot fire you for having a firearm in your locked car.

    Not true according to this video by U.S. & Texas LawShield Gun Law Center


    "It is not 'illegal' to keep your firearm in your locked motor vehicle while in your employers parking lot. However, many employers have a policy that no guns are allowed in the parking lot or in the building. The Texas legislature tried to remedy this with the employee parking lot bill, that many people are familiar with, unfortunately the bill was written without a remedy. Although it may not be illegal to keep a firearm in your locked motor vehicle in your employers parking lot, you may be subject to discipline or even termination if your company has a no firearms policy."

    Edit to add more about those laws here:
