A couple of weeks ago I lost my job so I am busy as a fire ant filling out applications. Tonight I was filling out an online application for an unarmed security guard position when I came across a question asking if I had a CCW permit. When I clicked yes a separate form popped up requiring all of the information such as permit number, state, and all that good stuff. What really bothered me was when it asked (required) me for a listing of ALL FIREARMS in my home by make, model, and serial number! I did not fill out any of the requested (required) information, for $9.00 an hour they can keep their job!
At that point I looked in vain for a reset button and when I could not find one I closed my browser. About thirty minutes later I received an e-mail thanking me for my application. I never clicked submit. So my question; is it normal for an unarmed security position to require information about every firearm that an applicant owns? I might be able to understand if the position was armed and required me to carry a personal weapon to list that weapon’s serial number but to me it was an invasion of privacy to ask on the application.
Well, no matter what, I know one place I won’t be going to work. I just hate that they now have as much information about me as they do.
Thanks for letting me rant!
