I don’t know what having a firearm in your home has to do with being armed when you are on the job. On the job means in the field investigating. It’s really simple why they don’t want you to. Cause when you are investigating people and in the field you are on their clock, which means they are liable for you. If you use a firearm they can be sued. Plus considering you don’t have the training, company training, company firearm insurances it can become messy fir the company. Plus, you are a BI, not a criminal investigator, so what is the real point.
