Exactly. I believe it would have been a good time to ask her what exactly is the purpose of the 'no gun' policy? Does she really think that a person, intent on doing harm to others or retaliating against the company, is going to give a crap about such policies? The only thing such policies accomplish is to make the work place a 'soft target', just like Ft. Hood was and 'still is'. They deny a person (an employee) to protect themself.

Even in states that allow the use of bulletproof vests specify that they are legal unless they are used in the commision of a crime. In other words, it's a tool to be used for one's protection unless used to do harm or to commit a crime. Just as well, a firearm is a 'tool' to protect oneself from harm by others unless it is used to commit a crime.
Bottom line is- their current policy does nothing to protect the employee, it only protects the 'Bad Guy'.
That's my 2 cents.

THere was a case here in the Houston area a couple of years ago where a CHL holder was robbed in his company car of ALLOT of computer equipment. The company fired him and tried to hold him accountable for the value of the lost merchandise. He sued them on the grounds that he has every ability to defend himself and the property in his care but was refused the accessibility to this protection by not being allowed to carry on the job. He won the suit, got his job back and compensation for the lost time at work and then put in his two weeks notice. If I am not mistaken, I think I heard later he was running a security company or something like that. Anyway, the point is things are slowly but surely changing to our benefit.

Where I work there is no known policy of Firearms. I decided not to rock the boat by not talking about it. I carry everyday and only one person knows (this person carries also) Neither one of us speak of it and we rarely even talk about our guns at work unless we are alone. We both agreed to keep it hush hush. Keep your mouth shut and your firearm of choice well hidden and you should be fine. Better to ask for forgivness than permission. IMO.

I would stand up and request that the company safety officer be present on the job site at all times so when the guy shows up to retaliate you can use that person as a human shield.......:)

She should at least authorize armed guards on the various work sites.
