Although we all know that carrying your weapon loaded while on post is standard for police work - is it necessary or even legally right to do so while working part time as a CCW officer or a private security company?

I have heard on several occasions that guns were discharge in a store or business and I am not sure why there are no regulations as far as how should a CCW carry his / her weapon while working or a private company.

If there are such regulations, please post a link with your reply

I appreciate your help

Why would anyone who is carrying a firearm for self defense or defense of others carry it without a round in the chamber? If you are not going to carry a round in the chamber you would be better off carrying a baseball bat.

Iam sorry but iam not sure what a CCW officer is :confused:
As far as carrying an empty pistol, you might as well be carrying a small stick :twak:
Always carry loaded, your life may depend on those few vital seconds your trying to chamber a round :yup:

CCW Officer? is that one of those Concealed Weapons Permit holders that bought one of the badges?
No it is somebody who bought the sash.

Here we go again.

OK, if this is not trolling you will have to explain and clarify you post as it makes very little sense as written.

CCW officer? Have we all been promoted?

NO, a "CCW Officer" should never carry a firearm with a "bullet in [the] barrel". If he does carry his weapon with a bullet in the barrel, and he then fires it, a bulged or ruptured barrel (at a minimum) would almost certainly result. This is not desirable at all. Please tell this CCW Officer, in no uncertain terms, to remove the bullet that is lodged in his barrel, and then he will be good to go.

While I'm unsure what you mean by "CCW Officer" I'll post some thoughts on your other questions. I'll try and address things in order:

"Is it necessary or even legally right to do so (carry with a round in the chamber)..." - As far as I know there are no legal statutes that cover this. In my personal opinion there is no need. Just as you are legally obligated to take responsibility for your actions behind the wheel of a car, you must take responsibility for your actions while carrying.

"...several occasions that guns were discharged (negligently)...not sure why there are no regulations as far as how" the weapon is carried - The several occasions in which firearms discharged that you refer to were caused by humans. The single constant is the human factor. This is what the firearm community refers to as a Negligent Discharge. Someone was negligent. As far as regulations governing a chambered round, refer to my first answer.

I'm assuming based on your post that you are not from America originally. I applaud you for reaching out and looking to learn more about our firearm laws. I assume the laws are much more stringent where you come from. I would ask that you elaborate as there is general confusion about the CCW Officer reference.

And as mentioned previously, a round is loaded into a firearm. The bullet is what exits the barrel, while the case (now empty of powder) is ejected to the side.

To my knowledge the is no such term as CCW officer in any state.

A private security company will bond and qualify you to carry a weapon on duty or you are not authorized to carry on the job.

Off the job as a security guard, armed or un-armed during work, you are a private citizen off duty and must abide by your state and local laws for carry, concealed or otherwise.

YR2009, I just looked at your profile and noticed you listed "Police Officer" as your occupation. As I would imagine you would know more about this subject, please explain this. I would hope you are not in fact trolling.

I spent a good 5 minutes on my previous reply, after all. :rolleyes:
