I’ve run into the same thing; I’ve also been dropped from consideration because I own guns.
You told the job interviewer you own guns? Why would you do that? How did the subject even come up?
Well, wearing a shotshell bandolier to the interview has a turn off effect to some.
why did you divulge that you own guns?
You didn’t get a job because you have guns? Wow. However, why answer such a strange question during an interview. Smoking and guns have nothing to do with employment interviews. I never was asked either question.
