These workplaces and businesses posting NO GUNS allowed are ignorant. They think a sign is going to keep the idiots and terrorists out of the building? Its an open invite. These types of wackos search for easy prey.
IMO - If a person has applied and received a conceal carry license then they should be allowed to do so. As long as the gun is as stated on the license... 'concealed'
The only place guns should not be allowed to carry is in a court house. There are plenty of officers around with guns in these places. Just my 2c on the NO GUNS allowed B.S.
Glad to hear that the OP's cousin is OK.
Sad to say is that Corporate America (and Globally as well, it's even worse in UK) just doesn't get it. I was given the duty of writing my company's Anti-Weapons policy. I fought long and hard, to the point of nearly downright refusing to write it (and thereby losing my job). Made me physically sick and burned some bridges between our GM and me...I needed the job, so ended up writing it the way they wanted it. Still leaves a bad taste in my mouth...
I even brought it up again when we were given the instructional video on Active Shooters that gives the Run-Hide-Fight levels. I said that I'm going to be sure my wife sues the Company for giving me the instruction to fight a shooter, but only allows me to throw a stapler...
Sad state of affairs indeed.
