    Could being a member of DC cost you a job?

    I found this more than just a little concerning. Could being considered a "gun nut" keep you from getting a job? Our 2A rights are not very popular with many businesses and this kind of thing could catch on very quickly!

    Why would you be considered a gun nut? Isn't Montana a "free state" where the Bill of Rights is respected? Why would they violate your 1st Amendment rights and your right to privacy?

    Screw them. None of their business. Period.
    More people need to keep reminding them of that simple fact.

    Easy way around it, make up a fake account with a few photos. That's all the info you give, nothing more, nothing less.

    There are numerous other ways they can conduct background checks, and with more validity than a blog or forum entry.

    In this case I would do what my sister did when someone overstepped his bounds in an interview.
    "Thank you, have a nice day." and walked out of there without another word.

    The idiot tried to tell my sister how to spell her own name.....Kathern is how its spelled. Not Kathren.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    I think the city has stepped over the line on this one. I'm sure it will get challenged in court and the city will lose.

    Were talking the city of Bozeman here. The area is overran with people who have left California for the "good life". Unfortunately they are bringing their California attitude with them and screwing things up.

    "I'm sorry, Mr Human Resources person... in this day of rampant identity fraud, I could not possibly divulge that information. Apparently your company cares more about snooping in my private affairs than the skills, talent, dedication, and work ethic that inspired me to apply to this company. Should that policy change in the future, please feel free to contact me about possible opportunities with your company."

    This just a little bit intrusive.

    LAWSUIT!! That is all that needs to be said....

    People, we had better get organized on stuff like this quick, because what is coming down the road is not nice at all. I am charged with implementing cyber security and electronic security perimeters at work for the NERC Critical infrastructure protection protocols being mandated by the federal government. We recently had meetings regarding the background checks on any employee accessing the "cyber-sensitive" areas or anything deemed a critical asset.

    In other words, a private company will do background checks on all employees as a condition of employment. If anything is found, the employee will be terminated on the spot depending on the severity of the offense. When asked about the determining criteria an exactly how punishment is to be meted out, the HR reps close their mouths and tell everyone it is none of our business.

    Can you say "Big Brother" and the "Beast" has arrived. Keep buying those guns and ammo Brothers and Sisters, we are going to need them here pretty soon I think......

    The city has decided to end the practice.

    On one of my trips to Montana, I talked to a Deputy Sheriff about CCW. One statement still stands out years later, this ain't California, we love our guns.

    That's good news and hopefully will cause others to think twice!
