biggest worry on a long visit to head office in Texss...

For this Brit at least was "What if they have a round of lay offs?".

I go to a concealed carry state on business a lot. If you genuinely worry, your biggest worry at that, about someone going postal due to layoffs then I'd be more worried about your overly emotive and not very analytical mind, not my American co-workers.

You're more likely, almost 3 times as likely, to be killed by a driver. 31k vs 11k [1,2] You are in fact more likely to die falling down the stairs [3].

Remember folks - You can and should form an opinion from facts, but you can never form a fact from your opinions. Facts matter, emotion doesn't.
