Indiana: Allowing guns locked in cars at work makes sense

Posted: 03.09.10 01:54 AM

In Valiant, Okla., on Oct. 1, 2002, during a surprise search, Weyerhaeuser Co. sent drug sniffing dogs into the parking lot of its paper mill. The operation found no drugs, but 12 workers were fired after guns were found in their vehicles. Weyerhaeuser's raid sparked a firestorm of protest that resulted in the Oklahoma legislature modifying its laws to hold employers criminally liable for prohibiting employees from storing firearms in locked vehicles on company property. After many years of legal wrangling, in February 2009, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that workers in Oklahoma have the constitutional right to keep guns in their vehicles parked on their employers' parking lots.
