Oklahoma and Kentucky have enacted laws prohibiting employers from excluding guns from the workplace. A bill has been introduced in Utah to do the same thing; a bill introduced in Florida would allow employees to keep guns in their cars even when the cars are at the workplace. This creates an obvious concern about workplace violence, since "[a]llowing employees to keep weapons in their cars cuts down on the 'cooling off' period of a disgruntled employee who has to go home to
get a weapon." For more, see Dee McAree's article in the National Law Journal.
