of a firearm. The company will be held liable if anything happens in their parking lot because of it been loaded with weapons in cars. For that reason, it will be good for them to get more concerned about the issues of any sort that might happen in the parking area. Significantly, to avoid such issues, companies have the legal obligations to prevent their workers from putting their guns in their cars without authorization.
ASSIGNMENT 2: WORKPLACE ETHICS 4 Question 3 In my opinion, I believe that the state legislatures should not get involved in such matters and they even have no right to be involved in the matter since the legislatures allow citizens to keep their guns with them everywhere they go. Significantly, the second amendment allows workers to possess a gun but they should abide to the rules of their employees. As a result, when it pertains to the matters concerning privately owned properties such as the property policies of a corporation, the state legislature should not get involved in such matters. Essentially, the federal and state laws safeguard the right to possess a registered weapon (Shaw, 2014). Therefore, I believe this matter should be left for the companies together with their workers to settle since they understand their workforce better. Question 4 I believe that it could be reasonable for companies to allow their workers to have their guns not only in their cars in the parking lots, but also in their offices of work. However, this should be allowed only under certain conditions and work environments. In some circumstances, organizations may allow their employees to bring guns in their workplaces and in so doing, this will be reasonable since it will guarantee workers a safe working environment.
