    IMO the best scenario is for a bank guard to be armed and in business attire.
    Have a desk and totally blend in with the other employees. The element of surprise would belong to the guard.

    A Securitis guard relayed a story when he was guarding a bank and his post was outside the front door unarmed.
    One day the bank was robbed and the perp walked right past him and got away. I see no sense in this unless the bank got some sort of insurance break by having a guard present.
    THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A 911 CALL IS FOUR MINUTES
    THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A .357 MAGNUM ROUND IS 1400 FEET PER SECOND?

      Um, that is blatantly false, and wrong.

      States where all stun devices including TASER are illegal:
      # Hawaii
      # Illinois
      # Massachusetts
      # Michigan
      # New Jersey
      # New York
      # Rhode Island
      # Wisconsin


      Cities where all stun devices including TASER are illegal:
      # Annapolis, MD
      # Baltimore, MD
      # Baltimore County, MD
      # Dennison / Crawford County, IA (*According to Sheriff Tom Hogan*)
      # District Of Columbia
      # Philadelphia, PA

      As you can see, they are only illegal for citizen carry in 8 states, and a few cities in America. As far as "I said security, not private citizens," security officers are private citizens with no more or no less authority than other private citizens, unless they are sworn officers, who then could carry a peace officers in states where TASER is illegal.

      The statement "I most states it is illegal for private security to carry or possess a TASER or electric weapon. Police only." is blatantly false. Taser just came out with the C2 personal defense weapon and showed it CES, not some tacticool expo, but the same place they showed the latest toasters.

      No law-enforcement only weapon comes in electric pink.

        There you go. Most of your clients get an insurance reduction by having the guard present, AND, if it can be argued that it was the guard's fault, the guard company's insurance company picks up the tab, whatever the liability-incurring event was.
