Lance Toland doesn’t want his employees or his business to be victimized, so he’s requiring all of his employees carry firearms at all times.
And the Georgia businessman buys each of them a gun – a Taurus Judge – as soon as they receive their concealed carry license.
“Everybody has one of these in their drawer or on their person. I would not want to come into one of my facilities [as a criminal],” Toland said. “It’s a 5 shot .410, just like a shotgun, and you call it hand cannon.”
After hearing about a recent wave of home invasions and armed robberies near some of his offices, he decided it was time for the new mandate.
“They all had their conceal carry permit within 3 to 4 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.”
