ConocoPhillips News & Updates

The NRA is urging a boycott of ConocoPhillips for opposing an Oklahoms law that allows employees to keep firearms in their cars in the parking lot.

Given the fact that employers can drug test you, fire you for smoking, run criminal and credit checks on you, and spy on you with cameras and computer software, prohibiting a deadly weapon on its own property doesn't sound like it is out of line.

If the NRA cared as much about all of the other personal rights that an employer tramples on, I might be inclined to support them on this one. But, they are silent on the others, plus, disgruntled employees can be NRA members too, so I am not going to be protesting at the corner gas station this weekend.

Out of all the things someone can protest, this may be one of the stupidest. Have they ever heard on the news of disgruntled employee's shooting each other? if a guns in an angry persons car just outside, than that isn't very safe.
