CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia’s business and manufacturing associations are almost all against a bill working its way through the House of Delegates that would prohibit employers from banning guns in the cars of employees or customers on their parking lots.
House Bill 4187, also called the Business Liability Protection Act, would allow employees who work at businesses that ban guns on their property to keep a gun locked up securely in their cars while parked in the business parking lot.
Several major employers in the Mountain State, including Walmart, have policies that restrict guns both in their businesses and in their parking lots.
