CUs not exempt from Texas gun law
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (9/6/11)--Credit unions are not exempt from a Texas law that restricts employers from preventing employees from having firearms or ammunition in their vehicles parked at work. The bill, SB 321, went into effect Thursday. It restricts an employer from prohibiting an employee who holds a license to carry a concealed handgun--or who otherwise lawfully possessed a firearm or ammunition--from transporting or storing the firearm or ammunition in a locked, privately owned motor vehicle in the employer's parking area. The law does not permit a person to carry the firearm or ammunition where it is otherwise prohibited by state or federal law. The law exempts certain schools and businesses involved in oil, gas and chemicals. Credit unions are not included in the exemptions, according to the Texas Credit Union League LoneStar Leaguer (Sept. 2). The league advised credit unions to review and possibly revise employment policies regarding employee possession of firearms or ammunition in cars parked in their parking lots.
