Indiana Gun Owner Takes Her Case To Court

posted on June 25, 2015

Melinda Voris was working at a retirement community in Shelbyville, Ind., when she decided to take five. The nurse went to her car, unlocked it and grabbed her cigarettes from the glove compartment. 

But a little smoke quickly turned into fire when a co-worker, who spied Voris’ gun in the glove compartment, alerted management. They inquired whether she had a gun in her car on company property, and the carry permit holder answered affirmatively. She was fired on the spot. 

Voris’ attorney Guy Relford states it was wrongful termination and has filed a lawsuit to get Voris’ job back. They should have good cause—Indiana law allows employees to have firearms in their car “if the gun is locked in the trunk, kept in the glove compartment of their locked car, or stored out of plain sight in the locked car.” Let’s hope justice is served and Voris is back on the job soon.
