You can enforce anti-violence policy off-premises.

Three off-duty AOL employees met in a company parking lot. Each had a gun in his car and planned to go target shooting at a local gun range. A company security camera recorded the employees and their guns. All three were fired for violating AOL's violence-prevention policy, which banned weapons on company property. The workers sued, claiming wrongful termination in violation of public policy, asserting they had a right to possess firearms in the parking lot. The state supreme court sided with AOL, saying public policy doesn't alter an employer's right to ban guns in parking lots. (Hansen, et.al. v. America Online Inc., 20020288, UT, 2004)
