Murder Risk Higher in Workplaces Allowing Guns

Well, duh!

A study by the University of North Carolina has found that workplace policies that allow employees to carry guns are more lethal than those that prohibit weapons, reported April 27.The report, published in the May issue of the American Journal of Public Health, compared workplaces that allow employees to carry weapons and those that don't. It found that murders are three times more likely to occur in workplaces where employees may carry
weapons, and the risk doubles when the weapon is a gun.
