I'm getting to the point where I'll be packing at work on those days I have to terminate an employee, even though it's against corporate policy. Today one of my guys refused to take the random drug test so he's a goner. The official firing will take place next week. Another victim in the WOD, but also a potential disgruntled employee who might lash out.

If your boss had to fire you for packing, would he be packing too? [;)]

What will end this kind of thing is to remove employers discression on alowing firearms on premises. They should not be alowed to even ASK if you have a CCW, much less fire you if you do. Its no ones business but yours, and in certain circumstances the police's, if you have a concealed weapon or not so long as you have a permit for it.

Hopefully, they will realise that the only thing that can stop this is for everyone to carry at least a hand gun at all times.
