After hearing about rising crime rates in the Atlanta metropolitan area, Lance Toland decided he needed to do something to protect his aircraft insurance business, and his employees. While most businesses owners would consider hiring private security, Toland went a different route. He decided to arm all of his employees instead.
Having a concealed carry license is now a requirement to be employed at every location of Lance Toland and Associates. Due to Georgia’s status as a “shall issue” state, it’s very easy for law-abiding citizens to conceal carry, and within a month every employee had a permit. “A lot of my clients are high fiving when they hear this.” he said in a recent interview “They think it’s the best things for a company to mandate gun ownership and be responsible.”
Fortunately the employees don’t have to buy their own gun. Once an employee receives a license, most of who are women by the way, he issues them a sidearm. Specifically, they all get a Taurus Judge. “Everybody has one of these in their drawer or on their person. I would not want to come into one of my facilities,” Toland said in reference to any potential threats “It’s a 5 shot .410, just like a shotgun and you call it hand cannon.”
