DAILYKENN.com -- If you want to work for Lance Toland Associates, you'll need to get a concealed carry permit.
Once permits are acquired, each employee is awarded with a hand gun known as 'the judge.'
Toland cites safety as the reason for the requirement, though we suspect the background search required to obtain a permit is an added bonus for the firm.
Here's more from wsbtv.com:
A local business owner with several offices in Georgia is now requiring all of his employees to get a concealed carry license and be armed.
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 after hearing about recent home invasions and violent crime in the metro Atlanta area, he came up with the new office mandate.
“They all had their conceal carry permit within 3 to 4 weeks of me announcing that this was something you had to do,” he said. “With the presentation of their license, they all got a 4/10 judge pistol.”
