    Wow. He and the other manager should be terminated immediately for having pistols at work.

    exactly! they should have called 911 and waited for the proper authorities to show up.

    I dont worry about needing a gun while actually at work, but I sure as **** want one when I go to lunch in fuggin SMYRNA and/or lower Marietta (*cough* I mean Mexico). :shock: Too bad I can't even have one in my vehicle so I can protect myself when I'm off-base. But hey I have a pocket-knife and a bad attitude! :roll:

    Luckily we have an unarmed security guard part of the day at our building. That makes up for our company policy against ccw. :rotfl:

    "I was anointed to sit in on what was expected to be a tense termination of an employee. They wanted a witness, and wanted extra muscle in the room should it get physical."


    Ive run into this situation where I work. Fortunately we have an AP office we call if we suspect trouble and they arrange for LEO to be on sight at the time and as long as needed for days to come.

    If any threats are made they are arrested then and there.

    BTW, Im not saying these guys did anything wrong , but I wonder if they had any other proactive options for security prior to the actual termination knowing it could be a tough one.

    I guess I've just been blessed. I've never worked any where I wasn't encouraged to carry. Well, since I turned 21 anyway.

    I have searched our HR rules and regs many times as well as that of our parent company and never found any mention of the words "weapon" or "firearm" listed anywhere.

    I'm still a little skeptical though. I've been going back and forth in regards to inquiring as to whether or not they are listed anywhere. I'd like to know for sure, because if they are not barred from the jobsite, then I don't see what recourse they would have against me should I choose to CC at the office. On the other hand, I don't want to ask and then be labeled as "that guy."

    Don't ask.

    If it is not in the handbook then it is not prohibited.

    Remember, Ga is an "employment at will" state

    So if they don't prohibit it and then used that reason as cause to fire me, wouldn't I have a case - or would the discrimination against gun owners case be better. :?:

    Do they list pooping in your pants and failing to clean it up before dealing with customers?

    If they do not prohibit it, and they use that as an excuse to fire you, do you think you might have a cause of action?

    :lol:
