As many as 800 people die a year from work-related violence in the US, 80 percent from guns. Yet amazingly, the NRA believes employees should bring their guns to work. They might need to protect themselves--against other employees who have brought their guns to work!

Thanks to the NRA, laws were passed in Indiana and North Dakota that allow employees to sue their employers if asked about gun possession. Hey, they have rights! In North Dakota the NRA pushed through a law banning employers from asking if employees' vehicles parked on company property have weapons in them and a law in Georgia that bars employers from making employment conditional on not bringing guns to work.
