I don't see it as the same thing... I'm thinking the same thing would be, telling someone they could not keep cigaretts in their car, at your house, in your driveway, when they come to visit...drsfmd said:Should you be able to tell someone they can't smoke in your house?

I have no problem with them having cigarettes on their person in my house. If an emergency arose that required them to light up a smoke in order to save their own life or the lives of others then that would be fine.drsfmd said:Should you be able to tell someone they can't smoke in your house?

You're right, it isn't anyone's business....if you own the property. Otherwise, the owner or lessee can restrict the use of their lot as they please, as you can on your property. NO PICK-UP TRUCKS ALLOWED!, or whatever. But I agree with you, as company (or government) policy, I don't like it either.sjohnny said:I don't believe it's anyone's business what I have in my car in a parking lot.
Same holds true on most college campuses and in school zones. It's a pain in the butt on the days when I want to go shoot a few rounds of skeet at lunchtime, but I need to drive home (east of campus), load up my gear and drive to the club (west of campus). When I'm done at the club I have to drive back past campus to my house, and drop off my gear before I can go back to work. It's a silly, silly law, but nonetheless, it is the law and I have to abide by it or face the consequences of not doing so.Jimbo63 said:Actually, I believe the Federal government has the same policy. I know a former Fed employee who got fired for having a cased shotgun and a cased rifle in his trunk in the parking lot of a Federal office building.
Well I feel it is wrong.bel_dad said:NO firearms allowed on premises. All vehicles subject to search.
Companies have taken to claiming the right to say what is in your car if it is on their property. How do you all feel about this?
