Currently, Senator Joe Uecker (R-14) is circulating a memo for co-sponsorship that would allow an employee to store a firearm in their locked vehicle without fear of employer retribution.

Throughout the country, many employers have adopted “No Firearms” policies that extend beyond the physical workplace to include employee parking lots – areas often accessible to the general public and not secure. In order to comply with these policies, many employees must choose between protecting themselves during their commutes and being subject to termination by their employer.

This legislation would correct that problem by prohibiting employers from establishing, maintaining or enforcing such a misguided policy. Nineteen other states have enacted similar laws including neighboring Kentucky.

The fundamental right to self-defense should not stop simply because you park your car in a publicly accessible parking lot owned by your employer. When companies invite employees to park on their property, they should not be allowed to dictate employees’ constitutional rights inside one’s own vehicle. The right to self-defense is a “natural right” affirmed by the Constitution.

It is important that you CONTACT YOUR STATE SENATOR and politely urge him or her to support and co-sponsor this legislation.
