Your National Rifle Association is currently seeking information from our members in Pennsylvania on employers who prohibit employees from transporting to/from and storing firearms in their locked, private motor vehicles while parked at work. This information will be a valuable tool in advancing state “employee protection” legislation in Harrisburg. Businesses have no legitimate interest in micromanaging the lawful contents of one’s private vehicle at the workplace.
These types of policies only serve to jeopardize the safety of their employees commuting to and from the workplace. You shouldn’t have to be the next potential victim of violent crime because you decided to seek employment from a company that banned the storage of firearms in your privately-owned vehicle.
If your company has such a policy, please contact NRA-ILA's State and Local Division at firstname.lastname@example.org and share this information. We have already received some information about companies who have similar anti-gun gun policies, but we need to know more.
Your NRA-ILA will be making “employee protection” a legislative priority and so should the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Contact your state legislators today and ask them to make employee protection a priority this session! Tell them that 23 states around the country have employee protection parking lot laws, and that Pennsylvanians should have the same rights as nearly half of the country.
