I feel your pain. I work security for a residential building very close to some bad parts of Boston. The Board and Building Manager are pro gun, but for liability and insurance reasons they kept the Developer's no weapons policy, but we are allowed to have pepper spray.

However, due to a couple of instances of almost being mugged (me), my manager lets me carry to and from, just not while on duty - but, it's always next to me. Luckily, there hasn't been a need for it while here. Though, we are across from a state building, and there are generally a dozen or so State Troopers as well as Boston cops right out front - if needed.

Really wouldn't be that hard to logisticiate, really.
And of course, if active duty were allowed to carry on base, well it was already said.

I guess the reason some businesses and office building management refuse to let employees carry while in the building is that they are afraid of being sued if some perp comes in and gets removed from the gene pool. Also, they have to consider that they'd need to make sure the armed people have proper permits in states that issue them. That would be a logistic problem, and would result in a lot of the people who can't/won't carry raising hell about the ones who do. So they just say "no guns".
In other words, the management takes the road hat is easy for them at the cost of putting the whole workforce at risk.

that, and so many simply believe that something horrible could never happen at their workplace. that, and they are afraid that by allowing guns at work, someone will shoot their co-workers. which I am pretty sure, not having the mind of a psycho-killer, but my guess would be - the rule would not make them re-consider a shooting spree. just guessing here, mind you....

Our PD is really good and fast at resondibg to anything we have at the medical center. No pepperspray for us. Althought I am licensed to carry. Company also says no to tasers. I think because we'd tase each other

What do you do at the office/work?
What company do you own, where is it and most importantly....can i come work for you? I wish more work-places were like this.
