Hey /k/ I want some advice on what y'all think. I'm working part time and today out of nowhere two people from the main office (we have 4 three small and one main one) started putting up 30.06 and 30.07 signs. Apparently not even the boss at my office knew. My mother carries here and I planned on carrying once I was of age (i'm 18 currently). My family tries to stay away from gun free businesses, should I quit and stand up for what I believe in or what should I do? I'll take a pic once they leave they're putting them up currently.
Don't do that. Simply ask your manager if he knows who made the decision, then ask to speak with that person. Politely ask them to reconsider their decision in light of recent world events or something that doesn't make you seem like a nut. Be respectful and see where it goes.
Can you just this once not act like a clueless ape frustratedly pawing at a strangely angular, glowing stone and rotate your fucking pictures so that normal humans don't have to break their neck looking at your ultimately pointless post?
Here's a hundred to do it. Here's another hundred to claim it was your idea to show people how retarded this logic is.
>homeless people would get stopped by police and not just disappear
Ask them why they are violating your Civil Rights...
As a black guy, I could only imagine their reactions as I ask them "Why they feel the need to violate mine and other's Civil Rights"
>should I quit and stand up for what I believe in or what should I do?
Sounds like you don't need or care about the job, so knock yourself out. Just don't flounce out like a drama queen.
You're just going to start a bunch of pointless squabbling and office drama. No one will agree with you, they'll resent you for making their shitty office drone lives more miserable, and your boss will peg you as a trouble maker.
There's a big disconnect between how /k/ thinks the world works and how it actually does. In reality no one really cares about carrying, except for the one or two that REALLY care like OP and the person who's going to go batshit crazy defending these signs. Everyone who's stuck in the middle is going to hate you both. Quit and move on, or realize that you probably have a better chance of being struck by lightening than needing to defend yourself in an office and this isn't a fight worth having.
It's all about civil rights. Your second amendment and right to defend yourself is in fact a civil right.
By denying this right in your store, you are disproportionately hurting people of color and women and gays. All of those groups are at risk and commonly victimized, and by preventing their right to carry a gun you are making them into potential victims against a stronger or more aggressive attacker.
God damn. You have the right to carry and own firearms its a fucking essential right, alongside freedom of religion and freedom of speech and freedom to sit wherever the fuck you want on the bus.
Im so sick of these bigoted "Liberals" saying "oh you dont need that gun you probably wont need it"
But yeah when my girlfriend gets raped or I get beaten because I am different, then I will need the gun. What if I am a disabled veteran? Or a young attractive woman? Or a homosexual? Guess what, how am I supposed to fight off a 6' 3" attacker who wants to rape/kill/beat the shit out of me.
sorry pal, but "You probably wont need it" does not fucking cut it. Might as wel argue "you dont NEED to sit in the front of the bus" or "you dont NEED to shoot that guy who is going to rape and impregnate you." Because what you are doing is saying "dont fight it because you probably wont need your gun," well what would have happened had we not fought for equal voting rights or other rights we "dont really need".
So sick of these fucking racist rich white fucking demorats who claim to be for black and LGBT and women's rights but will use those rights as a bargaining chip as soon as it fits their political agenda.
They fucking use the uneducated and poor minorities as their token's and use them to get what they want. No different than modern day slavery.
You have to make compromises to keep a job. One of those compromises is not dragging political or personal bullshit into a working environment. It's like starting shit with a coworker because s/he has a pro choice bumper sticker and you're pro life or vice versa. It's a needless distraction from the reason you're there, which is to do work in exchange for money.
If OP can't abide not carrying a gun while he does whatever it is office drones do he's more than welcome to seek out new employment. I advised him that he can quit, it's just a good idea to do so in a way that maintains a good relationship with your previous employer.
It's probably a posting error. It's pretty common on phones for the uploaded photo to get rotated despite being correctly oriented when you went to post it. Fucking crazy, right? Dumbass.
I've never understood these posts. My boss doesn't give a shot about me carrying persobally, but since I'm classified as "unarmed security" in our contract, when I'm at our client site (which is 99% of the time, that's where my office is), I'm supposed to be unarmed as per the contract. If the client or any of their employees sees I have a gun I get fired. So I deep carry with a Kangaroo Carry holster. Slow to draw, but at least I have something, and under my button up shirt and suit jacket you can't see shit. 0% chance of accidently brandishing.
Unless your job is some temp shit you don't care about, do the same thing. There are other deep carry options also, even something like an LCP in a pocket holster. No one is going to be able to tell you carry that way.
Depending on the state it doesn't mean jack shit to an employee unless they make you sign documents outlining these regulations.
There was a notable example of this in NC where an employee got fired from the job for carrying but at no point had the employer indicated that employees could not carry while on the clock and on the property. Guy sued, it went to state, guy won.
Don't quote me as I'm having difficulty finding the source info atm
Tell your boss that you're getting lots of complaints about it.
You're not there to have any personal opinions on the matter.
It's just hurting business and you're concerned about that.
I've never understood people that carry this way.
You have 0% chance of getting to your gun in a self defense situation and best case scenario, you have to own up to having it when the cops are there or risk being in trouble for that but then if you do tell them, you get fired. It's lose lose with no benefit.
Just carry a black powder revolver. You can do it at any age in Texas and it isn't legally a firearm or handgun at both the state and federal level
>B-but Texas is da bess state dog bless
Why are Texans so delusional? Permits are expensive, you have open carry but can't do it anywhere, these signs are on almost every business in the state. Unlike most states, these signs carry legal weight.
No one in their right mind thinks Texas has good gun laws.
I've stopped shopping long ago anywhere that bans concealed carry but now almost every business bans open carry.
I spent a fuckload of money for my CHL and I can't even use it on half the places I might use it in because liberal faggots from california move here in droves and I live at the epicenter of their faggotry (Austin)
It's like "Hey, californians, we have our OWN kind of faggotry here, we've got Texas' Faggotry needs covered we don't need you waltzing in and really REALLY fucking up the place."
Austin has become little-California.
Irony is they are escaping the policies they themselves voted for and now importing them into one of the last free-states.
Move out of Austin before its too late.
Oh I fucking know, my wife and I are only here long enough now to save up enough money to put a down payment on a house somewhere fucking else.
I really wish these faggots weren't coming here and ruining my hometown. (And if you dislike Austin you've never been here, it's the best place in Texas to live and you're just a big baby party-line walking faggot milk-toast whiteboy who can't like anything different.)
Lone Star Gun Range in lockhart
I haven't joined Austin Rifle Club yet so the only decent range is, conveniently, near some pretty awesome BBQ.
(Kreuz's is the best BTW fuck Black's.)
I don't know why he's so mad, but my phone lets me check and set orientation of images and you can certainly get programs that let you edit exif data. There isn't an excuse for sideways images or portrait-aspect video apart from user ignorance.
