5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read - Many would do well to read this book, August 24, 2007
This review is from: Guns in the Workplace: A Manual for Private Sector Employers and Employees (Paperback)
The idea of having a firearm is hard for some to grasp, however as the world grows harder and we, the people, see more and more cases of the government being unable to defend us, many more people are starting to realize that "When seconds count, the police are still minutes away". The police are there to clean up after a crime and take a report, rarely will they arrive in time to stop a crime once it has begun.

Think about it, if someone enters your workplace and starts shooting, what are you going to do? Call 911? How many people can this madman kill before 911 responds? Is that acceptable? NO! If even one person at your workplace was armed, they could stop the crazy man much quicker then waiting for 911 to respond.

Does this mean you should take the law into your own hand? No, just take your life, and lives of those around you, into your own hands. Legal firearms owners are responsible, and have training, and understand that a firearm is a last resort, life-saving tool. It is nothing to be afraid of in properly trained hands. It is simply a survival tool.

As an employer, I allow all my employees, who are properly licensed with the state, to carry a firearm at work. It makes sense. We are all safer for it.

That is the point the author tries to make, that having a gun at work eliminates the wolf-in-the-pasture scenerio. You are no longer a helpless sheep when the wolf enters - you are capable of protecting your own life.

We all need to be more responsible for ourselves in our daily activities, and this is just one more way to do that.

Reading "Guns in the Workplace" will enlighten you to the reasons and advanteges of letting your employees carry at work, and why you, as an employee, should do so.
