One Georgia-based insurance company is making sure its employees are prepared in the event of an active shooter situation, and the gun these workers are given should put fear in the hearts of any would-be criminals or terrorists.
After a spike in violent crime in the Atlanta area Lance Toland decided to do something about it, making it mandatory for his employees to be CCW permit holders.
But a permit is not the only thing they will have. They were also each given a 41o Judge pistol.
“They all had their conceal carry permit within three to four weeks of me announcing that this was something you had to do,” he said. “With the presentation of their license, they all got a 410 Judge Pistol.”
According to Bearingarms.com, Toland employs a number of women who will be able to protect themselves in the office.
“Everybody has one of these in their drawer or on their person. I would not want to come into one of my facilities. It’s a 5 shot 410, just like a shotgun and you call it hand cannon. I have a number of offices and most of my employees are women,” he says.
While his employees may be safe, what do the high rolling owners of private jets Lance Toland insures think of his policy?
“A lot of my clients are high fiving when they hear this. They think it’s the best things for a company to mandate gun ownership and be responsible,” he said.
