    Used to leave it in my car. However, the shooting in Orlando was a huge wakeup call. We have let go like 75 people. I also work with 50% arabic people that come from Iraq/Kuwait/Saudi/etc.

    What's the point if I need it and it's in my car right? :dunno:
     
  2. 50% arabs? It's amazing you don't have shootings every day.

    Assuming you're not allowed to carry into work. Might not be a lot of use in the car - I've thought about this before. Not much you can do :hs:

    If your employer prohibits it then yes you are "wrong".

    If you never tell anyone that you carry then nobody will ever know. So, you're probably safe unless you use it one day to try and save the lives of others or you go on your own killing spree :dunno:.

    You really gotta watch out for people who look different from you, they're plotting against you as we speak.
     
  7. I usually just shoot arab people on sight.

    i'm perfectly aware of the fact that they are normal people and i shouldn't judge them.

    but our company supports the efforts in Iraq. we also lay off people.

    ironically, these 2 things were reasons behind the 2 recent shootings

    if you're not breaking the law then it being "wrong" is subjective. like others mentioned, you might get fired for it.

    Even if you are breaking the law "wrong" is still subjective.

    Is it wrong to smoke a little pot to help your glaucoma?

    to some people, absolutely :dunno:

    i meant wrong in the sense that it is against company policy, not wrong in the sense that it is illegal.

    if it's against company policy and someone found out you were carrying you'd lose your job, if that's a risk you're willing to take in this economy then go for it i guess :dunno:
