Business owner: All employees required to get concealed weapons license
An Atlanta business owner with several offices in Georgia is now requiring all of his employees to get a concealed carry license and be armed.
Business owner Lance Toland said after hearing about recent home invasions and violent crime in the metro Atlanta area, he came up with the new office mandate.
After each employee at Lance Toland Associates gets their license, Toland presents them with a gun known as the judge.
“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.”
After each employee at Lance Toland Associates gets their license, Toland presents them with a gun known as the judge. He says it is one of the most effective self-defense weapons and all his aviation insurance agencies carry them openly in the office.
“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. “It’s a 5 shot 410, just like a shotgun and you call it hand cannon.”
Toland said he did it out of concern for his employees’ safety.
“I have a number of offices and most of my employees are women,” he says.
Toland has offices in Griffin, St. Simons Island and Atlanta where they insure aircrafts worldwide.
