Why would you need to carry a gun to work?

Oh, I don't know...maybe because sum dood could show up and threaten to bash your brains out with an axe.

The threat level out there is high. I don't go without a gun these days. I may have to leave it in the lockbox in my vehicle on occasion because of state law, but if I can have it, I have it.

If you don't have a concealed carry permit, you need one. If you have one and you don't carry, you need to start. It really is that simple now.

How about this. I worked the last two years before I just retired as a maint. man at a trailer park. I was walking down a street once, when all of a sudden, a pit bull lunges out of a yard at me. I had a yard blower that I was pushing with me, and got it between myself and the dog, and the owner came out, and grabbed the dog, who was "babysitting" his kid while he was doing something else, which I found out later was dealing dope. I couldn't carry at work, but you can bet your life that I had pepper spray with me after that. And now that I am retired, I never leave home without my firearm. If I thought that I would need it, I would not go. I take it, because you never know when you might need it.

The local police incident reports have many instances of "stranger knocking at door, stranger then kicked in door" where the lawful occupant then flees to the neighbors. My former office manager (a former city cop) verbally informed me "no guns at work". I work in a home with wheelchair-bound people who can't flee. I arrived at work at oh-dark-thirty to find the back dead-bolted door open with footprints in the snow. What to do, what to do...
