    State laws will trump company policies, especially when dealing with a subcontractor any day of the week. Similar to carry on college campus, carry on publicly funded property, the Castle Doctrine, and CCW Reciprocity. Hell, why am I telling you this if you're retired LEO? Any person lawfully carrying; A. should be allowed, and will not be legally punished, and B. will not pose a threat to a driver, and if they're doing right, the driver won't even know. But, that whole "my car, my rules," is the gotcha there. Your car, your rules you're an ill-informed ******canoe!

    Yea Clearly, I only own my own law firm and do my own taxes and drafted my own LLC. I clearly no nothing of what I'm doing. That Juris Doctorate that U.W. Gave me must have been a mistake, or the fact I have never lost a legal case. I'm a complete idiot on these matters. I mean just look at my profile pic, that screams this guy must not know anything.

    And lets just be honest about this whole thing, This had nothing to do with his firearm. These are just more anti police people that like to do what they want and hate any rule enforcers, It was never about his gun, it was about his badge, he just used the gun as a excuse to be a jerk so he could come online and brag to everyone thinking he is cool. Well your not your just another jerk, I worked Corrections for 2 years. At the end of the day i just want to go home to my family. Most jurisdiction REQUIRE you to carry at all times, and FYI, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS OFF DUTY. A Officer when swore in, is OBLIGATED to ENFORCE the laws at any time it is committed within his presence or he has knowledge of it. LEO's are never offduty. If they are out with there family and see someone go at someone with a brick, THEY ARE REQUIRED to ENFORCE.

    Don't let them see your gun unless you are going to (you hope) kill them.
    That is all.

    Exactly!!! Anyone that would follow Uber or the leftwing nutjobs that make up Uber the company and would trust them for you or your customers safety by not allowing legal firearms in your personal car, must be complete moroons.

    Which is EXACTLY why I don't want to be around them. You are right; it has nothing to do with the gun (I have one too). It has to do with their never ending, and never questioning relationship with a para-military and corrupt organization. They can not use their own brain, they can not consider right vs. wrong, they can have no feelings of empathy, they can't 'give a guy a break'. They MUST follow orders. They are robots. Why do you think that cops only have friends that are cops?

    They are "the Kings men" who, if ordered by their superior, would put a bullet between your eyes with NO hesitation. And sleep just fine tonight.

    No, didn't you hear? Cops are mindless killer robots who don't have friends except other cops. I know it's true because I read it on the Internet.

    That is simply not true. For a law enforcement officer to bring a firearm through airport security, they have to have a letter from their department detailing the reason why they need to be armed on an aircraft. Generally, off-duty officers have no reason to carry on an aircraft.

    And even IF you have a letter to get you through security, whether the gun remains in your possession on the aircraft is strictly up to the Captain of the aircraft. I once escorted a murdered officer's family to Washington DC for the national Police Memorial Ceremony. That Friday afternoon, there were four separate families from four local departments on that aircraft. All of the escort personnel were in uniform and armed. The Captain was very gracious, but he said his policy was that all the guns had to be in his possession until we de-planed. We all surrendered our weapons.

    There are a number of other exceptions. For example, it is illegal under Federal law for anyone except a federal LEO to be armed inside any US government building or facility. So local/state officers going to Federal court have to surrender their weapons. (BTW, we also check our weapons in State Court).

    Again, this is just incorrect.

    State and Federal laws trump company policies in those situations where company policies violate those laws. Barring someone from bringing a gun into a building or business of any kind does not violate the Second Amendment (which I support, BTW).

    CCF reciprocity means simply that one state's permit is valid in another state; but you still have to follow the laws of the state you are in pertaining to carrying firearms.

    Rights are not absolute. They can, and are, restricted all the time -- perfectly legally.

    You really should fact-check your opinions before posting them as fact.
