Yet another easy hit for the bad guys since most buysinesses will not allow their employees to be armed with anything more than a phone that can dial 911.
I like carrying my revolver but things like this make me want to start carrying my hi-capacity Browning more. Grrrr.
As a business owner myself.... I would not trust my employees to be armed and shoot criminals.They aretoo inexperienced and lack the training to make those decisions.
The legal ramifications could bankrupt my company if I were to be sued. We all know that thefamily of a dead bad guy can sue even if he was committing a crime. The law needs to change on this!!
I am in business to make money.... Armed employees can scare away customers. Accidental discharges can scare away morecustomers and get you sued.
If my business is likely to be robbed.. I will hire a guard.
If the employee wants to be armed... He can find employment elsewhere.
EDIT: I am all for the people being armed... But when something you do can hurt me financially... I have to draw the line.
