    Is it against UPS Company policy to carry a handgun in your vehicle when parked on UPS property even if you have a concealed handgun license.

    Yes...came out around 2002 - 2003. Now I don't drive through downtown Atlanta to and from work.

    Yes. UPS apparently believes their rules supersede the 2nd Amendment.

    Remember that when you are attacked and lie bleeding and dying in the UPS parking lot.

    If its private property they can do as they please in terms of what they allow on it....and if you work out of an airport you face prison time if your caught.

    Darn, do you mean I'll have to unload my vehicles of all my knives, bats, clubs, throwing stars, & paintball equipment just to park at work ?

    You can in Florida as long as you have a concealed carry permit.

    I've always found it hypocritical that if you fight out in the parking lot you get fired..but if your car gets broken into..."Sorry,not our problem"

    But if it was another employee that broke into your car and they are caught then UPS would fire them...so it's not hypocritical.

    What about if the UPS parking lot is not UPS property? If I keep a gun in my car, parked off UPS property, but in the official UPS parking lot for our center? Is that against policy? UPS rents the property we park on here.

    What he was saying was that UPS can tell you what you can and can not have in your car in the parking lot. It is there property. And as such, they have jurisdiction.

    But let someone come by and screw with your car while parked there, they will not in any way assume any responsibility for the damage. Their insurance wont cover it (or so I have been told)

    Kinda speaking out of both sides of the face in a way.

    Ok, that attempt at humor did not go over very well.

    Actually happened here ("San Bruno" (sic)) a few years ago. Well, the victims didn't die, that I know of, but one pt supe lost some digits to a machete. I didn't know the individuals, so I'm a bit fuzzy on the details. But I'm not making this up. http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1P2-1388878.html

    In theory, the company is free to ban posession of weapons in cars parked on their property.

    However, without a search warrant or probable cause of criminal activity, they do not have the right to search a locked vehicle.

    We have been told that we cant have guns in our cars in the UPS parking lot----but come out there on the Friday night before opening morning of hunting season and you will see dozens of trucks with campers, trailers ect. all loaded up with gear and ready to head to the hills as soon as their owners (Some of whom are management) clock off. Something tells me that there might be a deer rifle or two in those rigs.

    Bottom line---its a rule, but it is not enforceable.

    I once brought a handgun to work---I was shipping it back to Smith&Wesson for a trigger job and I needed to take it to customer counter before my start time.

    I called ahead, and they had an LP guy meet me at the guard shack. He opened the box to make sure it was empty, and then "escorted" me to the customer counter where I taped the box up and shipped it just like any other customer would do.
