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.
