    i think im going to carry at work.. wwyd?

    Ok so on the main concealed forum i posted that i felt bad for kicking a guy out of the company building i work for (security guard). I caught a glimpse of his weapon and the building is posted. I confronted him and said the weapon had to be removed from the building. He complied and returned without it. Now i am an unarmed security officer, and i got to thinking about that. What would have happemed if he was some nut job, or a guy just having a bad day? And when confronted pulls his gun? FREEZE! i have no cover in the huge lobby, and no defense.... i think im going to risk my job and company policy, and carry should that situation every arise. But what would u do?

    I would change jobs rather than break the rules/laws if it bothered me that much. IMO, CCW holders who PURPOSEFULLY carry into forbidden buildings, businesses or locations simply reinforce the anti-CCW crowds point of view and agenda. Please don't misunderstand, not passing judgement on anybody, just my opinion.

    Being retired for a few years now I've become somewhat board, especially during the winter. Not much to do because of the weather. I know, I can get a part time job at the local smash & grab gas and snack store, and make some extra 1911 buying money to boot. Long story short. They have an employee no gun policy. Before the interview began that was my first question. We didn't get to the interview before I thanked him for the opportunity and departed. So it won't be Dearly Departed there anyway. The employer has the right to expect there policies will be followed. Just MHO.

    Not a good idea in Milwaukee. A woman in Milwaukee, who is also a member here, was arrested for carrying concealed. She didn't have a permit yet, but also claims she was open carrying, her words against the police officers. Either way, its a misdemeanor if she is convicted. She had to fight to be able just to keep her guns, but per judges orders, she is not allowed to transport them anywhere. Although this isn't exactly the same situation, the outcome could be very similar. Not worth it in my opinion. If you are okay risking your job and charges being brought up against you, you may as well just find a new job where it's not an issue.

    If you are working as a security guard, and you are armed, you must be certified to do so. It is so in every state that I know of. Not only would you be breaking company rules, you would be breaking state law. Being that you state is the newest CCW state, I'm not sure I'd want to be the schlep that tests those waters.

    Wait a minute. You told someone else they can't carry at the job because the building is posted, but now you are thinking about carrying in the same building that is posted.

    Ever hear the word "HYPOCRISY", might want to look it up.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    You say the building is posted. My understanding is that in WI signs do carry the weight of law. Your job aside, is it worth the chance of losing your permit, and possibly the right to own a gun, if caught?

    Absolutely the Wrong answer here in Wisconsin. Our Law Signs carry the weight of the Law.

    I am honestly wondering how long we will even be able to keep this privelige in Wisconsin at this rate? maybe a year before the law is repealed due to people ignoring the friggin laws.

    CANT is one thing, but in this scenario you'd be risking your job, employer recommendation, ownership of firearms, and prosecution by law. Don't do it. Not worth it and stupid to even think about it when you fired an employee for the same thing.

    In order to carry a firearm as a Security Guard in Wisconsin, you must obtain a certification from the Department of Regulation & Licensing. This requires the successful completion of the State's 32 hour training course. This is required by RL 34.02 Wisconsin Administrative Code. Do not carry a firearm as a Security Guard without the Certificate of Proficiency issued by the State. Not only will you lose your job, you may also go to jail!!
