In my previous job, I worked for a small city and the employee handbook stated that employees were forbidden to carry unless specifically authorized by the chief of police. I never did get around to asking for authorization, though I carried everyday after I got my permit. My boss (a department head) & I were two of four people that worked in our building/department and she knew and approved (off the record) of my being armed. There were plenty of times that I was glad for it due to the nature of my job. And yes, I was absolutely prepared to lose that job over the issue. At my current job I absolutely do not carry. Not even a knife. I leave my gun locked in my car (in the secure parking lot.) Since I work in a jail, I do not disagree with this policy at all.
