Atlanta Business Requires Employees To Get Concealed Weapons License

posted on February 24, 2016

An Atlanta business with offices in other Georgia cities is requiring all employees to obtain a valid concealed-carry permit. Upon presentation of their license, they all received a new Taurus Judge .410 pistol. 

According to PalmBeachPost.com, business owner Lance Toland became concerned for his employees’ safety after hearing about recent home invasions and violent crime in the metro Atlanta area. After instituting the new policy, “They all had their concealed-carry permit within three to four weeks,” he said. 

Lance Toland Associates insures aircraft worldwide. “I have a number of offices, and most of my employees are women,” said Toland. “A lot of my clients are high-fiving when they hear this. They think it’s the best things for a company to mandate gun ownership and be responsible.”
