Now for the other side, regardless of how your boss feels, will you still carry a weapon to work for your protection, you still have to get to and from work, but knowing how he feels about you having a gun makes a whole different set of rules for you if he is anti gun.
Living in the south you wont wont have as much anti gun bias as in the north but remember it is your bosses bussiness, and you should respect his wishes regarding his property EXCEPTION BEING YOUR OWN SAFETY
if he says he does not want a gun on his property ask him point blank.... Are you saying you dont want me to interfer with crime, but you dont have a problem with allowing me to protect myself. If he does not want you armed that is his right as an employer. It is also a good sign to move away from that neighborhood/employer. Dont ask dont tell is a great policy as well, if you work for a corporation, but you dont, and you will know your boss/his wife better than I do. In fact you may decide not to ask, if you have gone that route then I suggest you NEVER show, if you have to use it he cant tell the court he didnt want you to have a gun to start with.
Carrying at work is a burden, there are times I have to let things go that I would have never tolerated when I was unarmed, it all boils down to this ......... Why do you carry a gun.
if its for your safety there are different rules, if its for protecting your bussiness there are different rules for some people, I merge the two, bearing in mind that my work means nothing to my family if I am dead.
There is a reason the store down the street from me gets robbed frequently and I dont, It has nothing to do with the criminal knowing if I am carrying or not, I was cased again last saturday, and took steps to make sure the thugs knew I was not the target they wanted to hit. Stay alert and aware and most criminals find easier targets.
KEEP THE CASH IN THE REGISTER LOW, dont break big bills for minor purchases, its not being unfriendly to the customer, its protecting yourself from being robbed. I get a lot of people who try to break their $100 for a six pack, I lose those customers to the guy down the street, of course he has also been robbed 6 times that I know of, to him its an acceptable risk to keep 200-500 in his register, and the crooks know where to get the most cash, he is good for my safety.
