So in Ohio, companies can’t trespass us for having guns in vehicle, and you must have a no gun sign on the door or asked to leave and refuse to do so to get the criminal trespass charge. I’ve been robbed 3 times at this gas station and I don’t want to hear the comments of quit your job, and this that and the other cause that is unrelated to the topic.
So in this gas station we have no gun sign, anywhere on the building. Customers can come in here and carry. But under our handbook under our responsibilities it only says “Compliance with the weapons policy.” I can’t find any weapons policy other than they can search my person, my bags, and my car whether the car is on or off company property for Drugs, weapons, and company documents.
Obviously I know if I’m caught with this firearm on my person or on company property. I’m automatically terminated. It’s against policy, but what I looked and found is that just because it’s against company policy, doesn’t mean it’s against the law.
My friend tried telling me that because I carry at work and it’s against company policy, they can make the argument that I wasn’t in defense of myself or add extra charges because I wasn’t supposed to have my gun when I was working anyway.
I told him I asked this lawyer in Ohio and he answered it publicly. So here’s the lawyers answers, and if you’re from Ohio give me your thoughts. Yes I have a concealed handgun license and I keep it concealed on my person.
