Non sequitur.

I don't smoke, or chew (yuck) but everyone knowingly puts themselves at risk. However, they are doing so of their own volition and can remove themselves from the risk at any time of their choosing. That is part of carrying, being able to remove yourself from that risky situation. Not carrying removes your ability to do this.

I like the logic you use.

Question: does operating a pink back-hoe put one at risk?

LOL. They made it for the "Digging for a cure" campaign.

But I is a gurl. But don't drive them (I can, just don't)

With all the "new" laws, are they allowed to do this?

Every workplace has written policies. Ask to see those policies.

Is the broker the owner of the company? If not, it's not his/her call. If yes, well, verbal policies are also binding.

Do you carry a briefcase (or something similar) with you? Keep it in there. If there is an actual policy, it's all about the wording.

I definitely know the meaning, but since I work for the Military on an installation, CCW permit is useless.

For those not stuck on fed property.

CONCEALED IS CONCEALED.

Yes, concealed is concealed. Is carrying worth your livelihood? Is it worth your freedom? Is it worth your life? It is a personal decision.

Addendum to my previous post, just because I cannot carry my sidearm, does not mean that I go to work unarmed.
