ELBC Technologies; a Security “No Brainer”

If you ever saw someone sneaking into a movie through a theatre’s exit while the audience was leaving, you witnessed a crime/theft via an exit lane breach. That might not seem important; after all, it’s only a movie. Think again.

Security Guards Require Less Training than Manicurists

Lobbying by the security industry has been so effective that armed guards with tacit approval to use lethal force are offering armed personnel services state by state with inconsistent training and/or testing requirements. Big businesses have derailed attempts to require rigorous training standards for armed guards across the country, most of whom face fewer state training requirements than a manicurist in a California nail salon.

GUNS TO STOP GUNS?

Using armed personnel to stop or deter an armed assault is the premise behind using guns to stop guns. Using guns to stop guns promotes lethal conflicts. What about the general public in the immediate vicinity? What is their defense?
