Let your coworkers know you enjoy shooting or collecting firearms.
During yesterdays "Violence in the workplace" training the instructor mentioned warning signs.
Such as, the ownership of several firearms, closet full of ammo, etc.
Felt like every eye in the room was burning holes through me, and a couple of my friends cracked a few jokes at my expense.

When the class adjourned, I looked at my superintendent and said "Don't worry, its a small closet"

Did they mention that you can also tell who is a prostitute in your office? Things such as high heels, skirts, and a vagina are often warning signs!

Heard the same crap at my previous employer. They said the demographics of the most likely psycho are: white male, 18-40, w/ an interest in weapons.

I used to always get the looks and nods or pointing during workplace violence training/anger management training while someone would say "the only thing this training really needs to cover is that no one should piss Lance off, ever" It was all in fun really since everybody hates that type of training and I had taken a couple of people shooting so they knew some of the stuff I have. I have been given weird looks or been asked "are you one of those militia guys or something" for having a Shotgun News, firearms sales flyers or NRA magazines laying on the desk as well.

I got that too, but to add insult to injury they also mentioned that said person was likely former military.

With all due respect, the instructor is a fucktard. How about identifying BEHAVIOR or PERSONALITY warning signs!

No never mind that "Bob" walks around all day muttering "Kill, Kill, Kill" under his breath..... no that's not a problem at all because he doesn't own a gun ! But "John" over there, he's the nicest guy, would do anything for you..... but he has a GUN at home. He's one step away from being a mass murderer !

Fucked up liberal bullshit really pisses me off !

What does it matter?

What you do on your private time is your business. 'Nuff said.

People that have hobbies or interests don't need to be looked at as outcasts, gun people included.

I disagree. I found a new shooting buddy when I brought up guns at my office. He owns an NFA M16 and has more guns than me. I love AZ
Link Posted: 1/20/2006 8:38:11 AM EDT
this is what you should have said

Well, I gotta tell you: I'd be very, very careful who you talk to about that, because the person who has all that... is dangerous

And this button-down, Oxford-cloth psycho might just snap, and then stalk from office to office with an Armalite AR-10 carbine gas-powered semi-automatic weapon, pumping round after round into colleagues and co-workers. This might be someone you've known for years. Someone very, very close to you.

sorry bud,

this anti-guy stuff drives me nuts....

i am just so sick of these idiots acting morally superior because they are cowards, and they don't haver the guts to say and do what they want.

instead they mouth the current PC mumbo jumbo


one time this faggoty architect at work told me he would not own a gun because he did not believe in violence.

so i told him next time he has a break in at his house to be sure to not call the police since the police are trained to use violence to protect his life.

he reluctantly agreed that i had a point.

summary : most anti-gun people are basically mealy mouthed cowards and completely full of shit

i would not say that. these kind of jokes play right into the stereotype of gun owners being nutty.

just tell the guy to go fuck himself.

or report his ass for insulting you.

It's a joke around my office.
I spend the summer taking co-workers to my range at lunch-time.

During today's staff meeting, they mentioned next month's team building exercise/party at a games/laser-tag emporium.

"We're going to shoot eachother with lasers."
Looks directly at me, "With lasers."

No big deal at all.

I think I had the same fucktard present the same "information" at my workplace.

I was sitting next to my boss when the "Such as, the ownership of several firearms, closet full of ammo, etc." BS was tossed out.

It was incumbent apon me to say in my best Pvt Pyle imitation "You better be nice to me"



The laughter settled down after a few minutes.

My boss jokes around occasionally with it especially with new people around. We have a huge picture window in our office from one side to the other. He laughed and told the office as he pointed to the top of a nearby window saying that I would be up there one day picking them off. I said actually that one is too high and close and pointed to a further away building stating it would have a better tactical advantage.

I have alot of frequent customers who are into guns and shooting. A local LEO comes in every now and then and we'll talk for about 30min. Also a guy from the Environmental office who has alot of high dollar guns. A tree hugger with guns!

My co-workers are cool though. All of them except for two has guns. All of them have shot an M-16 before so they arn't freaked out about guns either just don't have an interest like I do.
