Why would it get anyone in trouble? They want someone who is a licenced security guard and is also licenced to carry to patrol a private road. The way they talk about it, the patrol area is private property. You can have all the armed guards you want on private property. What I don't understand is why there would be multiple homes...that sounds a lot like public property. So if it is truly private property, I'd think it ok. If it's public property, and they are calling the road a private road because it's not a throughway, that's different.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
Sounds just like hired neighborhood watch. The carry part is a little scary though. At $7-$10 per hour minus patrolling and using your own gas, how much would you end up making
That pay is very low, IMO, especially considering you may have to use and be exposed to deadly force during your "job."
Plus, if you do get shot/stabbed/beaten on the job, who pays for it? I'm going to guess there is no worker's comp here.
I read it this way: You will patrol and report suspicious activity to the sheriff.
The gun is for your own protection, you are not expected to apprehend BG's.
I am not a lawyer, but in order to work as a security guard, you need a license in Florida.
armed or not doesn't matter: if you take money to guard someone's property, then you need a license.A security officer is any individual or business who, for consideration, advertises as or is engaged in the business of furnishing security services described below. The individuals and agencies are required to be licensed:
* Guards property
* Attempts to prevent theft, misappropriation or concealment of property or other valuables

Read the listing... They do not ask for a CCW holder they ask for a person with a security guards license which is different. Also, The whole thing can be private even with multiplal houses if a municipality has not annexed the road. This means that they also have to take care of the maintenance of the road and run the there own water lines and sewers to tap into the local city services. This type of set up is very common with housing and condo developments here in Ohio especially your higher end ones. This could also be a gated community and I am not talking about the kind that issues orange jump suits and slip on shoes. I see nothing wrong with this listing. Look up the info on the licensing required. class D is un armed certificate and class G is an armed certificate. Each require special training courses, A person with a class G is also qualified to work for an armored truck service.
God invented cops so that firemen could have heroes too!
They should also post another add looking for people to sue them. The whole thing spells TROUBLE.

The way I see it I am not about to miss 3 hours sleep between 2:30 - 5:30AM for a lousey $21 - $30. Not even if it was off the books!
You guys gotta read, they wanted someone with guard license, and gun license. Pretty simple. Its probably a private road with a few homes. Either polygamists or some guy rents out homes on his property, who knows.
I wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole. The money sucks and if you end up with gun play the lawyer will cost you a lot more.
$7 - $10 buckaroos per hour???? HAH!!!!
