IMHO, not a wise thing to post. What you are doing is against company policy, and if you were called upon to use your weapon, posts like this might have a negative affect on any litigation. Perhaps the "Clinton Policy" might be wiser - don't ask, don't tell.

Got a guy at work that's a real jekyll/hyde type.. You can say 2 words and literally watch his face turn red slowly from the neck up.
I'm outside the office one day and he's on the cell phone yelling at someone, I walked by and said good morning... He turns around and looks me in the eye and says quote "I swear I'm going to bring my shotgun up here and blow a hole in every d**k swinging". Naturally, company policy says we can't carry.
a call to law enforcement should be mandatory in a case like this...in the event an act of violence does take place and information regarding ignoring a previous threat is released there will be legal repercussions...you have an obligation to take threats seriously...
there have been enough real tragedies to support a call to law enforcement...take it seriously...a statement like that is no different than saying you have a bomb on an airplane...if someone makes a threat like that they should be prepared to spend some time answering questions from law enforcement...
Good for you!
I'm a very honest person myself and I'll always try to do the right thing, given the opportunity. That being said, I also consider myself to be a realest as well as a survivalist. I'll follow the letter of the law until it puts me or my family in harms way, then my survival instinct takes over and I make adjustments to compensate for what's troubling about my situation. I have yet to carry where it's illegal as defined by my states CC code, but I'll ignore a policy in a heart beat. I have a good deal of respect for my fellow man, but very little for their idea of how and where I can defend myself, that my friend is totally up to me, and the situation.
Stay safe Rollo, and IMO, excellent choice on the LCP. Excellent pocket pistol IMO. If ya didn't get a chance to see the Best Defense last evening, try to check it out online, or rerun. Michael Bane was showcasing the LCP with Ed Head. It was pretty cool to see the LCP being praised as a viable option for SD instead of getting trashed. Ed illustrates IMO the proper mindset and use for the .380 round and the mousegun platform.

Remember Rollo, it is much better to be judged by 12 than carried by six. Stay safe and stay silent. You are so right, the policy needs to change.
Damn, I could not imagine having to wait 10 days to buy a new gun... I guess I like living in free America........... WOLVERINES.
just be careful out there, and tell no one.
guess you could start showing up for with in full SWAT armor..... some how I think you might get a label after that.. but he!! they should be stepping up security there.....
Just a thought here--if you can "safely" do this--I'd suggest that you send a written (maybe email) memorandum of concern to the school administration, stating your justifiable concerns for your and other faculty's safety. You should include these two incidents, with names and dates. You could state that you are concerned about the administration's failure to take adequate safety precautions.
This way, while you "run silent, run deep", if something were to happen(either you had to take action to protect yourself, or you were "discovered" and had the school take administrative action against you), your attorney could use your emailed concerns and the schools lack of response as justification for your actions........
Your attorney could argue in court that the school created or allowed a dangerous/hostile work enviroment and did nothing to correct it, even though you brought it formally to their attention......

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

Good move, Rollo.
I'll switch to a DeSantis pocket holster when I wanna carry the LCP up front. You could pat me down and never find that thing there.
The LCP may not be a rocket launcher, but it's always with me.
