    a privately owned parking lot, regardless of what the lot’s owner wants?
  2. In your view, do employees have either a moral or a legal right to park cars
    with guns in them in the company parking lot? What do you believe should be the
    property rights and safety concerns of employers?
  3. Do you think state legislatures are right to get involved, or should the
    matter be left to companies and employees to settle?

    be reasonable? Or would the presence of guns automatically violate the rights of
    other employees to be guaranteed a safe working environment?
