Gov. Bill Haslam says that the key to an agreement allowing employees to store their firearms in vehicles parked at work is to exclude college campuses. The National Rifle Assocation and other proponents of the bill argue that banning guns in company parking lots prevent workers from being armed during their commute, while opponents such as the business lobby argue the measure infringes on property rights. Haslam said his administration would not take a lead on the issue, but would fight to keep educational institutions out of the final version.
