A 7-11 store is robbed by a man who attacks a clerk with a cup of hot coffee, pulls a knife, and attempts to steal the contents of the register. The clerk, who had been robbed several times during his six years there, drew a handgun and the robber fled without anyone getting hurt.
Like I have said before, the employer faces liability if they do not prohibit weapons. They face no liability if a defenseless employee or customer is killed by a criminal. The truth here is that the business thinks that their bottom line is more important than the lives of its customers and employees.
That is why I don’t care what your policy is: I carry everywhere I am permitted to by law. I don’t give two shits about your policy.
