Thread: Businesses Which Allow Employees to Carry

    When I get my business up and running I will encourage carry.

  3. I work for too large of a company. They have a life insurance policy on me. They cannot tell me I can carry, or they might run into legal problems (read paying out a lot of money) if I do something stupid... but if I die from not being able to defend myself, then they take the life insurance money and spend it hiring a new person to replace me.

    Sadly this is how most business is in the US... its all about money. Most large companies would rather their employees die in a self defense situation, than take a chance in letting them carry a firearm.

    I work for one of the largest retailers in the country. They have a no carry policy. It is in our hand book under safety. I find it amusing because we also have what is called an active shooter policy. If a gunman comes into our office we should do one of three things. If it is safe to run, run. If it is safe to hide, hide. If you can't do either of those do this, and I quote, "find items to throw at the gunman". Real safe. Lol.

  5. yeah same here... run, or hide, but if you cannot do either, they say to acquire makeshift weapons and fight as a last resort... throw things or hit or whatever it takes... pretty stupid. Guy comes in killing people with an AR-15 and i can't shoot back, but no worries.. I have a stapler and will just hit him in the head with it... piece of cake!

    Yes, at Spy-Tronix Spy Shop, we encourage all of our employees to carry. Over 70% of our staff are either retired military or law enforcement - it just makes sense.

  7. Something needs to be pointed out here. There are several big businesses that do not allow or support the right to carry. There are several of these that are franchised out and the franchise owner is allowed to make that decision. I own a small business that is a franchise and I know that the main company is not very keen on the second amendment but I know several franchisees that are. Don't throw a business under the bus too quick. Do your research and make sure that the franchisee doesn't take a hit because of the name brand.

    I allow my customers to carry if they choose. We'll kind of. The employees need to keep it in their cars. I can't have them running around in a uniform with a gun from their side.

    Wait, what? Customers can "kind of" carry? And did you mean "well" rather than "we'll" (or was it supposed to be we will kind of carry--maybe some of us will carry?)? And what's wrong with employees having a gun in uniform? Why not let them carry it concealed? I'm guessing you meant "...with a gun at their side." Otherwise it sounds like the gun is running away from the employees in uniform, which would be an impossible but understandable reason why they couldn't carry it.

    Yes, I'm a grammar nazi. No, I'm not trying to insult you or deliberately misunderstand. I genuinely have no idea what you just typed. I'm a grammar nazi to the point that if grammar gets mixed up (understandable sometimes) I get exceptionally confused.

    First paragraph: If you are a franchise, you have paid the larger corporation for your ability to run a business under their name. Therefore, if we support you we have supported the larger corporation. Your point is moot.

    Second paragraph: How dare you allow your customers to be able to defend and protect themselves but disallow your employees to do the same.

    Big question... if the customers are allowed to carry, but the employees are not, do you carry at your place of business? If not, you are a fool, if you do, you are a hypocrite.

    I have always carried at my work. First time the owner (this is a small business) found out about me carrying was when I pulled a gun on one of our customers (he deserved it).... My boss has no problem with any of his employees carrying, even though he doesnt even own a firearm.

  11. Can Carry at my job

    I allow my employees to Carry at work, as long as it's concealed, and they have a permit for it. I own a Pizza Man in Minnesota, and we CAN open carry with a permit, but I don't allow that. I only allow concealed. Customers would probably freak out seeing guns.

    I also own a website selling holsters, and I allow my employees to carry there, since it's mostly only me :D. Over 1,000 different Holsters – GunHolsterDepot.com
