Realtors protect yourself!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Jayson Hoffer Insurance Agency Inc.

Ok, lets talk about guns. I live in AZ an open carry state. Do you realize that every prison is full. They let people out daily because of overcrowding. 25% of our population has a mental illness. In Az we have tent city because the jails are too crowded. Its also a great way to deter people from stupid activities. Drive drunk- get a week in tent city! I live in a great community but police response times are 12 minutes. We live in Gilbert AZ. My wifes family lives in NJ. They would have a 15-20 minute response time. When seconds count, police are on minutes away!

I run a gun group in AZ because I met a client in his home 3 years ago. We were discussing his home owners policy. I noticed a gun holster and asked him what I need to protect because gun coverage is minimal on all insurance policies. He showed off by showing me an uzi with a silencer. By the way this was a felony without paperwork. 10 years in prison! Without a Tax Stamp this guy is going to jail.

I have a friend that worked for the court system for 20 years. She always says its better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. Realtors, you go into a ton of homes where you do not know what might be around the next corner. My wife is 100% anti gun! I came home a year ago to find the shotgun on the bed as she was sleeping. She heard noises outside the window. 

If you are looking for something small, discrete, and able to carry without anyone knowing look at the Ruger LCP. I bought mine as a business expense after the above uzi incident and a thorough discussion with my CPA. The pistol was about $330. It fits in a back pocket of ANY pants, or easily into your purse. I would recommend a carry holster. My wife hates guns so much she carries a cell phone stun gun which are about $60-100 for a good one! If you are anti gun this might be a great thing to carry on the loop of your purse or belt loop.

Hi Jayson,

I am not anti gun, but I still found your post disturbing.

I guess I would rather confide in God (which I have done all my life).

A gun can go off in your pocket and rip into your leg.

Your kids can accidentally shoot themselves or a friend.

A criminal can get it out of your hand and use your gun against you.

All these are situations that have actually happened.

Jayson - nice post!  It did make me think about a few of the Realtors I have worked with who have a quick temper - there are a couple around that I hope are not carrying!

Scary post. I am not a big gun fan myself. I'm with Phil, I'd be praying for some good negotiating skills!

Thank you all for commenting!

Phil, everyone needs to be responsible with their firearms to never let people get them. I will agree a gun can go off in your pocket. A responsible gun owner will have a carry gun with a harder trigger pull so it does not go off in their pocket. Meaning it takes a lot of force to discharge the trigger!

I also believe that we all need to have some defense training. I am not saying we need to be black belts but having a few classes of self defense will also help. My wife does a class or two every year!

Barbara. I certainly do not want everyone to carry. I have a friend who admits to having a short temper. I have seen it once. I would love to go shooting with him, but we both agree not everyone should carry. If someone is extremely responsible and LAW abiding, sure!

Michelle sometimes we can not negotiate.
