Everybody has one of these in their drawer or on their person.
I hope all his offices have great security systems and insurance since they are advertising to criminals that it is a good chance you can get a gun if you break in at night.

old news, notice the date.
I remember when this story was covered locally.
seems the guy has a fair amount of cash flowing through the business, and mostly all female employees.
many times they are there by themselves, seems he also has auto lock doors and people must be buzzed in?
If memory serves there was some thought of a possible suit by some organizations as the conditions of employment might be illegal?
in any case it is what it is, not everyone is comfortable around guns, and certainly not everyone wants to be around those that may have a gun.
to each their own in these regards.

Was thinking the same thing? Also, this story is from 2016 so I wonder how it's going now?

I didn't catch the date when I came across it. I thought it was cool that he mandated a Taurus. Being that this is a Taurus message board, I thought I would share.

The Judge wouldn't have been my first choice if most employees are women...

One round should be sufficient to get most intruders to either fall down or turn tail.

With aviation insurance as their business, I am not thinking that they have a large cash exposure.

That's a pretty smart idea, actually... Not many folks are going to consider robbing a business in which each employee is open carrying such an intimidating-looking handcannon as the Judge, and seeing as there hasn't been a follow-up story on anyone attempting to rob the place, it's safe to assume that it has worked out for them.

I wonder what kind of ammo they use? Hopefully specialty loads for the tighter spread. I don't even want to think about the kinds of collateral damage a standard .410 load would do considering the amount of spread and the fireball coming out of the muzzle.

I have no idea, it was one of those overnight sensations and then disappeared!
made the news because of the subject and it was at a time when a not as friendly BATF /Guberment was in charge.

The way I read it, the boss gave his employees the guns (though the murky phrase, 'presented them with' was used), which would go home with them at night.

Well, Griffin, Ga is airwrench’s neck of the words. Maybe he’ll drop in with some kind of update.

In related news, at least two towns in Ga have made homeowner ownership of at least one firearm (with appropriate ammo) per household the law. Doubtful if they can enforce it but it is the law.

yep!
Kennesaw Ga did this many, many years ago but to my knowledge they have never enforced the law?
likely don't want to or want to encourage any litigation as to being a lawful requirement.

That’s right. Kennesaw passed their law in 1982; the small hamlet of Nelson, Ga. (pop < 1500) passed theirs in 2013. The article below discusses this as well as other American cities (and townships nationwide) who have considered it.
