MICHELLE BYINGTON (Legal expert at U.S. Law Shield, specializing in the workplace gun laws) WORKPLACE GUN LAWS CREATE SAFETY CONCERNS FOR EMPLOYERS With recent mass-shooting tragedies across the country, gun laws have been in the spotlight, but what does this mean for your workplace? If your state allows concealed or even open-carry, can an employee sit at their desk with their gun? This is a large issue for many, especially those who will be going to work with individuals who carry guns. Does an employer have the authority to tell their employee to leave the gun at home, or must they comply with all state regulations and laws, even on private property. Arguments are made that guns in the workplace could make it safer, while the other side states that they can only make an office more dangerous. -- What happens if an employee starts bringing a gun to work and it's making other employees nervous? What about customers or visitors to a business? Do the rules extent to the parking lot? Does the employer need to put up signage? How do these regulations vary from state-to-state?

Fox News Radio's RACHEL SUTHERLAND (Live from Washington) STATE OF THE UNION PREVIEW The White House says President Barack Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night will be non-traditional. Obama will deliver his final State of the Union address a week after bypassing Congress by using his executive authority to expand gun rules. He could use the speech to highlight other issues on his agenda that he'll address without the help of Congress, like Guantanamo Bay, echoing previous executive actions on everything from immigration, carbon dioxide emissions and re-starting diplomatic relationship with Cuba. In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union," White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough signaled that Obama will pit the American people, watching on television, against Congress, his in-person audience, and its members' donors.
