I was hoping that it was that big headed, freaky a$$ burger king, but unfortunately it wasn't.

    Im sure he will get a nice letter thanking him for protecting his fellow employees as well as firing him for violating company weapons policies.  Ah MHI, life imitating art,

    This just makes me think of the scene from Indiana Jones - where the guy comes out and he's doing all the fancy sword work and Indy just rolled his eyes, pulled his firearm, shot him and walked away.

    In some states IIRC you may keep your CCW weapon in your car at work.
    Not that you will reach it to save anyone's life or even your own in time.
    But at least it's a possible option.
    Bad guys get to carry theirs anywahere they want.
    Why?

    Or, if you are the owner's son, you can carry regardless.  From the article, it seems that the shooter was one of the owner's sons.  For me, my father doesn't care what I carry, so long as it doesn't scare off customers...  :panic

    The problem they may run into will be from corporate. I'm sure DQ has some lawyerese in their franchise rules that prohibits franchise holders from permitting carry by employees. The question is if they will act on it or let it pass.

    We have a DQ here in town, and nowhere have I seen any posted prohibitions on weapons.  Not to say that corporate doesn't have them...

    Just a guess - one of two things will happen.

    1.  Because this has gone National and everyone- media included say good on that guy - they'll quietly mumble about it and leave it alone.

    2.  Wait an "appropriate" amount of time and send a letter to the franchise holder - terminate or lose your franchise.

    This is assuming that DQ does, in fact, have rules against employeee CCW.  Do they for sure?  Like I said, there are no signs forbidding patrons from carrying - if there were, they would lose my business.

    They don't have to post it for employees - could be in the employee handbooko website.

    After a brief perusal of the Dairy Queen Employee Handbook, I found no mention of weaponry whatsoever.

    Just because a lot of similar corporations have stupid rules, does not mean all of them do.

    Great, now I'm hungry for ice cream.  And I want to buy a pistol.

    But that doesn't go with the complete lack of trust of "corporations" that seems to go around these boards. 

    Which to me is hilarious.  Corporations are awesome, unless there's some niggling little rule from one company, then all of the same type of company are godless tyrants denying rights.
