Parking Lot Gun Bans?

The Star's Crime Scene KC blog points to this story on some states considering laws that would protect gun owners rights to leave a weapon locked in their car while at work. Kansas is currently one of only six states to have such a law.

The Star of course has no problem leaving their bias out of the story...
Opponents, though, say it doesn't make much sense to ban guns from the workplace if Crazy Bob can quickly fetch a shotgun from his car when he snaps.

Advocates, on the other hand, remind us that it doesn't make much sense to ban guns from employee parking lots if Crazy Bob does show up to work with two hand guns, a shotgun, and a backpack full of ammo and goes on a media-fame inspired shooting spree and no one is able to run out to their car to get their gun and shoot him dead before he kills or mames too many people.
