You are some frightening peoples!

Log this under employer issues, I suppose.

Mr. sts_47's employer saw that he was visiting this forum and cut off all internet access.

They weren't complaining that he was excessively using the internet. They didn't object to other, non-firearm related sites. They shut down his access because this site was considered "scary." Problem is, a lot of the forms he needs to do his job are also online.

Why did they think it was scary. Does he have a stupid liberal boss?

supposedly they are a non-profit Christian republican organization, and even the facility manager that I report to knows my military background and that i'm recruiting for many of the local LE positions. Hell, sometimes the staff ask me to escort them to the parking lot for safety because there's only one security person unarmed for a fairly large complex that's next to a not so nice area, and sometimes they can't come over.

she literally told me that corporate office thinks that i may "go postal" (that's exactly how she told me). They are supposedly concerned of me spending time on GT, manufacturers, and firearm review sites. She's trying to get my internet access at work reinstated (like my wife said, i have to use the web for some of my work)

i'm actually taking a few $/H pay cut working there, but the benefits are decent. if they continue in this direction, i'll just find different employment. with my job, i can spit in any direction, and an employer will be there to hire me.

oh, and they do have the (no guns) sign on the entrances, and i comply with them. though i really don't like it.

I work 12 hour night shifts, and sometimes at night there's not much to do after everything is done. GlockTalk has been very helpful.

oh well i've got an interview with a local police chief in a week, i just might move up my career change sooner. or if not, i'll be moving out of state in June

I think Mrs sts47 is more pissed off about it than me. I just think they are stupid, and don't deserve my time.
