An Atlanta business owner made a smart decision in his office by requiring his employees to get conceal carry permits. He then gave each of them a gun to keep.
Atlanta business owner, Lance Toland told the Palm Beach Post, he made the decision “after hearing about recent home invasions and violent crime in the metro Atlanta area.”
Toland, who owns multiple offices in Georgia, said he created the office mandate, keeping his employees safety in mind.
“They all had their conceal carry permit within three to four weeks of me announcing that this was something you had to do,” he said. “With the presentation of their license, they all got a 410 Judge Pistol.”
The Taurus Judge handgun is a revolver that is capable of shooting .410 shotgun shells for short distances as well as .45 caliber bullets for longer distances.
Toland told the Palm Beach Post that the gun is one of the most effective weapons for self defense and all his aviation insurance agencies openly carry them.
“Everybody has one of these in their drawer or on their person. I would not want to come into one of my facilities,” Toland said. “I have a number of offices and most of my employees are women.”
Toland added that his company insures “several high-profile business owners who have private planes” and they may do the same thing for their business.
