Well, we went to our first training session. I was curious if firearms would even be mentioned during the initial training. When we first arrive at the main building I notice their are large signs on every door stating that firearms are prohibited on site. This is clearly for the safety of the staff. One staffer tells us of how they often fear an angered parent will show up with a gun to take revenge on the social worker. That makes perfect sense. We all know that if an enraged parent who is most likely on drugs gets angry enough to come down with a gun seeking revenge they will most certainly be foiled when they get to the front door and see the no firearms sign. During the first hour of the class they show an orientation film. Surely enough firearms are mention multiple times during the training. The video and the presenter make a point to stress the state regulations require that firearms must be kept in a non-breakable safe. Still, they make a point to always add "but it would be best if you just keep them all off site" at the end each time they state the regulation. It is very much evident that they are saying "legally you can have them, but we are going to make an issue of it if you do."
