G-Tac's hired security firm defending the use armed guards around mine

ASHLAND, WI (WTAQ) - The owner of an Arizona-based security company is defending the use of armed guards at Wisconsin mining sites.

Bulletproof Securities president Tom Parrella told the Wisconsin State Journal that rifles are needed to protect those mines from opponents with strange or threatening behavior.

Parrella says several mine opponents have posted death threats and other criminal retaliations.

He adds that Bulletproof Securities will not put guards in a risky situation without a way to defend themselves.
