2ACheck Rating: “B” – Lowe’s is mostly gun-friendly.
August 8, 2013: Lowe’s Home Improvement allows lawful firearm carry by the public. However, we have just received confirmation that Lowe’s HR policy prohibits possession of any weapons by employees. For this we have dropped their rating from an “A” to a “B.” We believe Lowe’s policies are still generally supportive of gun rights, just not for their employees.
It is unfortunate, but employee restrictions on weapon possession in the workplace are commonplace in America and many companies that allow customer carry prohibit employee carry. Those companies are typically rated “B” by Second Amendment Check.
Most companies will not disclose employee polices to us, but we suspect many with an “A” rating would have a “B” rating if they did. If you see a company that we rate an “A” that you know bans firearms for employees and can provide evidence, please contact us: info@2ACheck.com
We recently came into possession of the page of the Lowe’s HR Policies and Procedures that covers “weapons.” Have a look:
