    I've only been in one grocery store which had a security guard (can't remember if he was armed or not.) this was at a food lion in a predominately Afro American neighborhood.

    It's probably not that odd. I had a part time job as an armed security guard in a grocery store in Richmond, probably 20? 25 years ago. There was also always a plainclothes policeman (armed also of course) who was there most of the time.

    During the time I worked there, one of our guards was killed in a botched robbery attempt.

    the gun is only as good as the man (or woman) behind it...loaded or not, still if it's concealed leave it concealed

    I see security guards with no guns now. Just what is a guard without a gun going to do in a situation? I have heard of guars losing their lives during robberies..pretty common actually.

    They are there to observe and give a good description of what happened to the police.

    In Idaho, no. Guess I forget about the crime rate in the big city's. I was a armed guard for the Hispanic dance clubs, now those do get wild.
