    This does NOT surprise me at all and have no problems believing it. Here child services refused to approve someone for being a foster home if they had one gun, to out and get rid of anyone with a conceal carry license, no adoptions for those that have a CC license. They were sued , and the person won .... so they changed some of their "official" policies, etc. But, it's quietly still all done... the unofficial rules. It's totally stupid they do it ... but they do.

    Reminds me of a quote from a film:

    "That's right, and now they want to destroy me because we can't have monsters roaming the quiet countryside, now can we?"

    - Mitch Leary (as played by John Malkovich), in the 1993 film In The Line Of Fire, explaining his understanding of why "the system" was coming after him.


    I think the knee-jerk approach to dealing with "those" sorts in society is much the same as described by the above quote. Folks don't want "monsters roaming the quiet countryside." And many just assume that people who show a willingness to be armed must be the same sort who abuse and misuse arms to harm others. No matter how farcical the "logical" connections they make to come to such assumptions.

    Assuming the claims in the article are true, of course. Which, in many such cases they are, whether or not they're true in this specific instance.

    I hope she has a good lawyer to advise her whether or not she has a case.

    I would be surprised if she has much of a case in a right-to-work state. I fired a guy from a corporation in a right-to-work state. He sued me and the corporation for wrongful termination. The corporation often settled out of court to avoid publicity and litigation costs. During the depositions, I mentioned the porn I had found in his desk after he had cleared his desk and been escorted out of the building by security and that it looked like underage girls. His two female attorneys called a recess and then announced the case was being withdrawn.

    You're confusing "right to work" with "at will employment."

    "Right to work" means a person doesn't have to join the union to work where the union has exclusive right to be the bargaining unit.
    "At will employment" means just that...employed at the will of the employer.

    They were not good attorneys then.
    I find supremely ironic that God in his wisdom and grace has given man freedom of choice bounded by 10 simple rules. Man in his finite wisdom has created millions of rules to limit freedom of choice and personal responsibility of man.

    An update on this: The lady who was fired, Storm Durham, told a reporter that "...she is working with attorneys supplied by the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a Second Amendment advocacy group." The VCDL put out an alert that that statement is NOT correct. The VCDL does not provide attorneys for cases like this, they don't have anywhere near the budget for it. They would recommend an attorney if she asked, but she has never contacted them. The VCDL has asked news sources who reported that to retract it.

    The VCDL also said, "We have seen the reports of Storm Durham's claim that she was fired by Roanoke Social Services for simply having a concealed handgun permit. We are looking into the claim, but until we have the facts cannot issue a statement. (VCDL Leadership has not been in touch with Ms. Durham yet.)" Comparing that to what I have seen in the past with VCDL communications, it suggests to me there is some doubt about the facts of the case and Ms. Durham is not returning the VCDL's phone calls.

    Perhaps she was fired for other reasons?

    Perhaps the officers were there because management felt she may not take it well and may have her CC on her?

    They knew her better than I did so that call may have been valid.

    We may never know the full truth, but it appears her story is just that.
