Guns at work? Only the bad guys have them: "People often wonder why anyone would want to have a gun in their car at work. The answer can be found in The Daily News Journal: Shots ring out in parking lot. SMYRNA -- Gunfire split the Wednesday morning air as employees prepared to start the work day at Cumberland Swan. An employee lay shot, and the ex-husband she recently divorced is now charged with attempted murder. ... How much are you willing to bet that employees of this company are disarmed by company policy? How clear is it that said policy did nothing to stop this tragedy, and probably aided it? How clear is it that any policy of the company had no chance of keeping guns off the property? The guy was barred from having guns by law but that didn't stop him."
