CCW v. "Private Property" Claims

The Scary Story people are out there, hoodwinking at least one Radio Guy (AM620, noon-to whenever) into swallowing the "property rights" line.

Odd that the RadioGuy bought it; he was a Fed prosecutor and should have known about this:

On Feb. 18, 2009, the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit ruled that a statute passed by the state legislature allowing employees to keep firearms locked in vehicles on company property--therefore giving citizens the means to protect themselves while traveling to and from work--is not preempted by federal workplace regulations. Nor does it violate employer rights to regulate what can and cannot be brought onto property that companies have designated a parking area.

...In 2007, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma ruled against the plaintiffs on their first three arguments--that the law was unconstitutionally vague, a taking of private property or a violation of due process rights

It's possible that there's a contrary ruling out there, but NRA-ILA doesn't have it noted.
