Microtech is anti-gun?
Today, social media got their panties in a bunch in response to a poorly written article in which it showed a “no guns allowed” sign on Microtech’s front door. In typical fashion, people on facebook didn’t investigate this issue for themselves and spread a shit storm all over their news feed and Microtech’s facebook page.
For the love of the church people, learn to think for yourselves. Below is a response from Microtech’s General Counsel:

Seems to be a little confusion going around social media today about the Microtech Manufacturing facility and our support of the 2nd amendment. Microtech is very supportive of the individual right to keep and bear arms. To us, this means that individuals have the right to possess and carry weapons in case of a confrontation. We view this as a fundamental and inalienable right with which all are created. We also recognize that “arms” within the scope and meaning of the right encompasses anything an individual wears for his or her “ defence, or takes into his hands, or useth in wrath to cast at or strike another”; within the words of Heller. Essentially everyone at Microtech is armed all the time. Everybody has a knife. We make the best edged arms in the class. We also have a “Proprietary Armed Security Force” on premises. Our employees and friends know us as avid owners and users of firearms. The Microtech facility is not a place open to the public. We do, as a part of our security program, reserve the right to ask that visitors with whom we have no experience or familiarity not bring firearms into the secured spaces. We do not “post against carry” and certainly do not discourage people from exercising their rights.
