The Business Next Door and CC
I have a less than reputable business opening next to mine that will essentially be a place where thieves can hock stolen jewelry, no questions asked. The only positive thing about it that I can come up with is that they will possibly take the focus off my business if someone decides to rob the area again, which has happened to a couple other businesses in the complex.
What bothers me the most though, is when they came in to my place to ask about the general area and what the landlord is like to deal with, I mentioned all the crime and the section 8 housing close by and the one guy says to the other, "Well, I guess we'll have to start carrying" and then leans in likes he's about to tell me classified information about Area 51 and says, "We have our concealed carry permits"......as I am standing there with my Glock 27 in my CB Supertuck. Obviously, I said nothing. They then went on about how they had prayed to God and he had told them this was the business they needed to be in and that God will protect him and so on......
So, I've got a high risk business next door separated by nothing by drywall and paper thin metal studs that will be manned by a guy that felt it wasn't important enough to be carrying his weapon until a guy he had never met before told him the area wasn't exactly crime free and he thinks he will be protected from harm by talking to the almighty sky wizard. My lease isn't up for another 2 years if I have to get out of here.
Body armor time? Find out what he carries and buy him a box of frangible rounds?
