New Op-ed: Stop endangering employees

April Dabney and I have an op-ed in today's Washington Times. The beginning of the piece starts:

Banning guns from the workplace seems like the obvious way to prevent workplace violence. At least that is the policy at ConocoPhillips and many other companies. The nation's largest oil refiner bans employees from storing locked guns in their cars while parked in company parking lots. The issue erupted this month when the NRA announced a boycott of Conoco and Phillips 66 gasoline stations and editorial pages across the country attacked the NRA's action as outrageous.

    Two-and-a-half years ago, 12 employees at a Weyerhauser plant in Oklahoma were fired when they were caught unawares of a change in the company's ban on guns policy that was extended to the parking lot. The company had used trained dogs to find guns in employees' vehicles. Oklahoma's legislature overwhelmingly passed a law letting employees keep locked guns in their cars, but two firms, ConocoPhillips and the Williams Co., are challenging the law in court on the grounds that it endangers worker "safety." . . .


Gun Control Groups not so Grassroot

Chad Baus discusses where the so-called grassroot gun control groups get their funding from. Hint: it isn't from the grassroots. Of course, this is in addition to all the money that George Soros has given to the Brady Campaign to fund their suits against gun companies. Compare this to the millions of small donations that the NRA receives.
