Like I’ve said on here before, my boyfriend is on a goverment contract. He drives an hour and 15 minutes to get to the city to work. He has to park on some gravel lot somewhere and then take a 15 minutes bus ride to his job from there. He can NOT have his firearm at his job and he can not even have his firearm in his car parked on the gravel lot because the lot is also government property. This is the same gravel parking lot where one of his coworker’s Harley Davidson was stolen just a few weeks ago. A guy walked up, jumped on and drove away with it.
So for the entire 11 hours that my boyfriend is away from the house during the day he is without his firearm all because he can not take it with him to work. If he stops at the gas station, he is unarmed, if he stops at the store on the way home, unarmed. At work, unarmed. In that parking lot in a bad neighborhood, unarmed.If he breaks down on the side of the road, unarmed. Because he’s a law abiding citizen who works for the government and does not want to get in trouble or lose his job, he will be an unarmed victim just like this lady was.
And someone mentioned for him to get gas in a gas station near us in our own town before he goes into the city. Well, what makes a gas station near us in our own town any safer? The station two miles from us in our town got held up at knife point not that long ago. There is no “safe” place to get gas or be unarmed.
