Fox59 News was there in Morgan County when lawyer Guy Relford filed what may be the first lawsuit testing the state's new so called "take your gun to work" and "don't ask, don't tell" laws.
He thinks he has a rock solid case.
"Yeah, we do," said Relford.
"My client was actually terminated for lawfully having a legally owned firearm in his vehicle and the statute reads directly on these circumstances. It really couldn't be a better fit the legislature had in mind."
Security guard Thomas Jordan said he was shocked.
"It was a blindside," said Jordan. "I didn't expect it to go this way."
Jordan said he was fired out of the blue from his job as a private security officer with ADM
Enforcement in Camby because he owned an AR-15 rifle and carried it in the trunk of his private vehicle.
"It was a lawfully owned weapon that I kept in my vehicle," said Jordan.
But, this is where things get a little sticky. According to ADM Enforcement, one of the reasons why they fired Jordan was because of what happened in an Indianapolis apartment parking lot. According to the police report, Jordan went into his trunk, pulled out his AR-15 rifle and showed it to his supervisor. But the gun accidentally discharged.
Maybe ADM thought that didn't look very good since ADM does security for apartment complex. ADM then took disciplinary action against Jordan.
AMD told Jordan "per handbook page 35, an AR-15 is not an authorized ADM firearm. The AR-15 was accidentally discharged while chained in officer Jordan's vehicle."
Then Jordan was fired.
Jordan argues he was off duty that day and it should not be an issue. Jordan's lawyer will argue ADM is violating Indiana's new gun laws.
"It's a bit ironic here that he's required to carry a gun as an armed security guard but only a gun that was approved by his employer but he can't have his own private gun locked out of plain sight in his vehicle that had absolutely nothing to do with the performance of his job," Relford said.
Jordan said he wants to send a message to other employers and empower gun owners.
"I believe I was wrongfully fired for just the basics of reasons that make no sense," Jordan said. "The law is the law."
