a new job in a no carry zone

looks like i may be re-entering the workforce. i applied for all kinds of jobs, but got a call from a CBRF, group home. needless to say, i won't be carrying while at work. so, i guess i will need to fasten my little travel vault inside my vehicle. time to adapt.

Yeah, not being able to carry at work stinks. I work at a school. So no carrying for me. I often find myself making sure my gun isn't showing when I bend down to get something. Then, I think duh, my gun is safe in my car. I have a safe that is underneath my seat. And just because I'm anal, I take the mag out and carry that with me.

A few people I know got their guns stolen out of their cars while they were working. One guy just purchased a new Glock 19, 4th Gen and had it only for a few weeks before it was stolen.

Just count your blessings that you're not part of the roughly 15% of the population who are unemployed, underemployed, or have given up looking.

When the economy turns around, you can afford to be picky where you work.

Community Based Residential Facility? I hope you have Corrections experience, cuz that sounds like a warm and fuzzy name for a work release Even if you don't, work release isn't so bad. Even if it's not a work release, I imagine any situation like that is going to be quite an experience.

Good luck w/ the new gig.

One learns to appreciate work after not having any for a while. Good luck with your career. Follow your conscience as well as your wallet.
