A couple of really good points there.
Consequences of carrying a firearm where you are not supposed to would most likely have more consequences than just being sacked.
You could also conceivably do jail time on top of loss of job, CCW and firearm.
And that's just if they catch you with it. Gods forfend if you were to end up in a position where you had to produce and use it at work (or even somewhere that basic logic would reveal you were carrying it at work, such as in the car park on your way from the building to the car).
It'd suck big time to lose your freedom, livelihood and your right to carry a firearm for personal defence most places, just because some co-worker notices you're carrying.
Of course, as has been said, it's a personal call based on how you perceive the risks compared with the value you place on being able to defend your life.
While being sacked may be minor compared with your life, losing all chance of being able to defend your own life ever again could well be a lot more serious, as could being incarcerated and the myriad consequences that
has on your life, future job prospects and ability to hold a firearms licence or CCW - "YMMV" on this one.
Personally, I wouldn't risk it - or do anything else that would seriously impact what few rights I have to access firearms (New Zealand Law's pretty constricting).
