What This Business Owner is Requiring his Employees to do Might Put a Smile on Your Face [Video]

A Georgia business owner is now requiring his workers to obtain concealed carry permits and to carry their firearms while at work. His new policy is the result of concerns about public safety, namely violent crimes that have been committed in localities where his offices are located. In addition to his concern about local crime, he also has concerns that most of his employees are women.

Lance Toland owns Lance Toland Associates, an aviation insurance agency, the main office for which is located in Metro Atlanta. Once his employees obtain their permit, he presents them with a 4/10 judge pistol, a gun Toland describes as a “hand cannon.”

He says it is one of the most effective self-defense weapons and all his aviation insurance agencies carry them openly in the office.

Everybody has one of these in their drawer or on their person. I would not want to come into one of my facilities,” Toland said. “It’s a 5 shot .410, just like a shotgun and you call it hand cannon.”

Toland said after hearing about recent home invasions and violent crime in the metro Atlanta area, he came up with the new office mandate.

“They all had their conceal carry permit within 3 to 4 weeks of me announcing that this was something you had to do,” he said. “With the presentation of their license, they all got a 4/10 judge pistol.”

Even many of Toland’s clients think it’s a great idea and may follow his lead. “A lot of my clients are high fiving when they hear this. They think it’s the best things for a company to mandate gun ownership and be responsible,” he said.

What do you think of the business’s new requirement?
