Indiana gets law allowing firearms in parked cars on company property
Commuters have rights, too. Commuter Defense is a common-sense gun law that respects individual property rights.

orry, I have to weigh in here, in a way that refocuses the lens, as it were, as I see it.
My car is my property. There's a whole large apparatus devoted to registering my car as my property with the state, because that property is self-propelled. It can move, so there are serial numbers and State-provided license plates and insurance to cover my liability for what trouble it can get into as it is moved about. And I accept that apparatus, and pay for it annually, with the understanding that if my property is stolen from me, there's at least a chance that this self-propelled property can be identified and returned to me by agents of the State.
Where it is parked is kinda irrelevant. I'd like to think that I'm paying for more than just an opportunity for recovery after theft.
What I keep on my property is my business. Particularly any property of mine in which I have a Constitutionally recognized and protected right.
I have an agreement with an employer that he employs me and I need a means to get to and from his premises to do his work. It's none of his business what I keep on the property that I use to transport myself to and from his premises.
It's about damned time that legislatures see it the way I do, and tell employers to pound sand about what I keep in my glovebox.
