I turned down a security job once because they would not let me carry. Even though I have a CCL and am licensed by the state as an armed guard. I told them I would not put myself in a position that would cause a bad guy to want to hurt/kill me, not without being able to defend myself.

"You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth - and the amusing thing about it is that they are."
