Q: if I am an unarmed security guard do I lose my right to concealed carry a firearm for which I am licensed while at work

I have a concealed carry permit. I also have an unarmed security license. there is no where I go in the course of my duties where possessing a firearm would be illegal. no provision in the concealed carry law States that I may not carry my firearm while working as a security guard. no provision of the security guard licensing regulations specifically mentions concealed carry with license for personal protection. the unarmed security guard licensing laws do make a vague statement that says an armed security guard may not carry a firearm while in the performance of his duties. in most other situations the verbiage States but you may not carry a firearm in the course of your duties thus disallowing carrying a firearm visibly vs completely concealed.
