    It is hard enough to fight the anti's without this kind of crap. If you go with a gun you will deserve whatever you get.

    Take some advice; I work in the power industry so I do know something about the culture in a power plant. Leave your guns at home until you ace the interview and get the job. ONce you get on, you will find that 99% of the people you are now working with will be armed in some way shape or form. Eventually you will befriend the security personnel, even hang out with them, and once they get to know you, they will look the other way, and even give everybody a heads up for any random vehicle searches that may be on the way. That is what we do, and I promise you, we are for the most part a better armed power plant complex than most Nuclear plants in terms of sheer numbers of guns available.

    So swallow your pride, get the job in the bag, and enjoy your new co-workers, they are rabid gun owners like us.....

    P.S. I almost forgot to tell you; be absolutely truthful with them throughout the interview. Power Plants are falling under the new NERC security guidelines and they will have already run a background check on you through NCIC, the database managed by the FBI. So leave nothing out when they ask you about CHLs, arrests, etc no matter how trivial.....

    Guys, guys...
    Read the OP carefully. Exactly ended with "....or not."
    It may have been subtle, but even I got it was a joke!

    Exactly: Tell them you have a note fro DC. THAT will work!

    Absolutely not. I am enjoying this too much.

    Yes, yes, yes. It is a joke guys. I did add the "or not". As I told Hopyard in a PM, I may be crazy but I am NOT stupid. Come on. You don't see me open carrying when the President is visiting do you??

    Hey. I carry on a federal facility every day. Heck, if I don't, somebody will tell me to.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Good one. A few sucked that one up like Hoover Deluxe. Didn't think anyone was that anxious to be someone's girlfriend for five to ten.

    You know, I have to wonder how lax some of the fitness requirements are for contracted security guards at some of the plants I get deployed to... yeesh. Yeah, SOME sites do it right by having their own teams that are largely young, enthusiastic former mil, but the contracted guys seem (to me) to be overweight or overage police academy dropouts.

    Just talked to the recruiter. We discussed the security of getting in to this facility. Apparently it is a metal detector followed by wanding and more if need be.

    Dang. I am leaving my pocket knife and pepper spray in the car on the seat next to my firearm which will be in plain view. Heck. I will even put a sign up saying "Firearm on seat" next to my NRA and Impeach Obama stickers

    Just remember, there's no such thing as a Federal misdemeanor, whenever the Feds charge you, it's a felony.
    An armed populace are called citizens.
    An unarmed populace are called subjects.

    If it's a federal job then don't forget to wear your T-shirt that says:

    "Guns don't kill people, postal workers do." Trust me, they'll love it.

    Tell them if a full body cavity search isn't part of the daily routine you don't want to work for them!

    You say that like it's a BAD thing. I just wish I have the huevos to do something like that.
