File this story under “things make you breakout the happy dance.” While leftist alarmists are out decrying anything they deem remotely dangerous, like “hate speech” or man made “climate change” all the while pushing abortion on demand, along comes a pioneer. Lance Toland, an insurance company owner in Georgia, has insisted his employees pack heat. Yes, guns. He’s definition of a “safe space” includes asking punks if they feel lucky.
When a longtime employee, a National Rifle Association-certified instructor who’s been the company’s unofficial security officer announced her retirement, Toland wanted to ensure the remaining employees were safe. He now requires each of them to get a concealed-carry permit, footing the $65 bill, and undergo training. He issues a Taurus revolver known as “The Judge” to each of them. The firearm holds five rounds, .410 shells that cast a spray of pellets like a shotgun.
“It is a weapon, and it is a lethal weapon,” said Toland, whose company specializes in aviation insurance. “When a perpetrator comes into the home or the office, they have started a fire. And this is a fire extinguisher.”
First of all, this guy? He’s my hero. Secondly, if a bad guy decides to enter his place of business?
How could I not use a Dirty Harry gif? It would’ve caused me physical pain to omit that. Real, physical pain.
You know who else is in real physical pain? Okay, besides any crap weasel who enters this insurance business intent on causing a ruckus? Anti-gun nuts. According to people who are afraid of those inanimate objects which go pew pew pew, even having one around is cause for fainting spells. Heck, even a representation of a gun, from a half-chewed Pop Tart, is cause for a freak fest.
Well this guy just issued a giant screw you to all of those ninnies. His security guard retired. Rather than erecting a mess of “GUN FREE ZONE” signs with the hopes the baddies would steer clear, he armed up. He’s insisting his own staff protect themselves should the worst happen. Which happens more often than we know…
More than 400 people on average are killed in the workplace each year, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. Just last week, a gunman with a criminal record who had just been served with an order to stay away from his former girlfriend began a shooting spree, eventually landing at the lawn mower parts factory where he worked. Authorities say he killed three people and wounded 14 others before a police officer shot and killed him.
We call this being proactive. Lance Toland is keeping his office safe, he’s keeping his employees safe. He’s entrusting his staff with weapons not platitudes. He’s giving them revolvers not anti-gun propaganda. Because he understands that the only thing which stops a bad guy with a gun? A good guy with a gun. Read also Armed Robbers Raid a Barbershop.

Here’s hoping plenty more people follow in Lance’s badass stead.
