Being a stupid person, Joan Asks a Stupid Question.
Yes, I understand that sometimes bad people come in to work places. But the need to carry at work is just not on the minds of most people when they get dressed in the morning. It is the 2-3% of you who try to change the culture for the rest of us. It’s like the quotes from the articles about the Kroger shooting- people who aren’t trained and don’t keep up their skills shouldn’t be shooting in a work place. As we all know, accuracy is a problem and panic is another problem. I just don’t see it, Bryan. But some of you insist that you would and could carry in spite of the desires of employers or CEOs of companies. What is that all about?
What IS that all about. Well again Joan is flailing against a righteous shooting that likely saved several lives at that Kroger. Of course the elephant in the room for anti-rights cultists is that guns are used to save vastly more lives than they take, so they must discount as many defensive gun uses as they can to keep the lie alive.
As for people putting their guns on in the morning, I’d say its a thought of every gun owner who keeps arms for self-defense. If you own guns and are proficient in them, why wouldn’t want to keep one close at hand? As for percentages, I suspect Joan is pretty tone-deaf in this endeavor. Every place that issues permits is noting a rise in applications, and Wisconsin is FLOORED with the number of applications that have been received since carry became legal there in November. These are the people who will be carrying guns in their day-to-day lives, and not particularly considering WHERE they are going, just that they’ll be going there and where they go, they’ll be armed.
The question of training of course is more flailing as Indiana carry permits don’t require a training class, and this shoot went down as clean and perfectly as anybody had hoped. Of course like Joe Zamudio Joan wants to focus on what DIDN’T happen because what DID doesn’t fit with her fabricated view of reality.
Of course the reason why people would carry at work is simple…bad things can happy any time and any where, and if we KNEW where bad things were going to happen, bad things would only happen to stupid and reckless people. Of course any place that deals in cash can be robbed, and ANY robbery can turn violent by its very nature. Also if you work in a secure office building that does nothing to stop a troubled employee from entering. (Note that the shooter in this case was a prohibited person, was ignoring the countless Massachusetts gun laws…and one of his victims died with a New Hampshire Conceal Carry permit in his pocket…gun laws only disarm the lawful). And even if you work in a “Gun Free Zone” that does little to protect you as we know from various College Shootings, as well as stories like this.
As for the will of my employer. Well I work at their pleasure, so I will do my best to be a good worker…what I will NOT do is die for my job, nor do anything unsafe for a paycheck. If that means I get terminated from a job, there are better jobs to be had. I will note that my employer has no policy against firearms, and I’m happy for it!
Carry your guns people, the life you save might be your own!
