Parking lot bill is right constitutionally

The Oklahoma parking lot bill won its case saying it is right to allow guns in locked cars in private parking lots.

the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit ruled that a statute passed by the state legislature allowing employees to keep firearms locked in vehicles on company property--therefore giving citizens the means to protect themselves while traveling to and from work--is not preempted by federal workplace regulations. Nor does it violate employer rights to regulate what can and cannot be brought onto property that companies have designated a parking area.

  1. Judges got another one wrong.

    I am about as hard-core freedom as you will find, but this wasn't a victory for freedom. The bill of rights could just as easily be called a list of government disabilities, limitations and requirements for the protection of rights.

    No one has a right to come on another person's property and do whatever they want whenever they want.

    If there's a danger in the parking lot, how does having your gun locked in your car protect you before you get to it? Why can't you have a gun in the place of employment? Why can government define where it's acceptable to have a gun and where it's not?

    Should the government disarm someone suing a cop for police brutality and require him to be subjected to the 'protection' of the same police force which employees the officers that he's suing? Is he entitled to protection once he leaves the courthouse until he gets into his car safely, since the government has told him that he must disarm himself inside the courthouse?

    Where does government derive authority to tell some property owners that they have to allow guns in cars, while prohibiting guns in cars at schools and prisons, or any other place it so chooses?
