    It's called voting with your wallet....

    Funny how the liberals are applauded when they organize boycotts and attack businesses they don't approve of.... can you say Chick-fil-A? But when pro Bill of Rights folks decide to favor those businesses who support their rights over those who would destroy the constitution, it's a big deal.

    I've been doing this for years and make it a point to contact anti-gun businesses and let them know I won't be patronizing them. Just like the big fiasco with camping world not too long ago. They'll never get another dime from me.

    I can definitely see why gun owners feel this way. Why support anyone that doesn't support them? What disturbs me about these businesses that put up these signs saying no guns is it states that its a safe place for criminals to do what they like. That's been proven by the mass shooters. I'm very uncomfortable in a place that displays these signs.

    I can see that gun owners have determined that it's not people carrying guns and commiting crimes that are the enemy. It's those that are unarmed and don't want an armed populace that are the enemy. Thus the friendlies are like minded people packing heat and their foes are the unarmed populace who want to go about their business without having to worry about a firearm discharging while they eat their sandwich in the mall food court.
    This seems far less like gun rights than it seems like nutcase central and the true colors being shown.

    @frigginhell I don't want to fight you but I don't like your implication that in a nutcase either. I am a single woman that only wants to protect herself. I went and got the proper training and understand the laws and the proper way to and time to use force.
    All I said was I understand why gun owners don't want to support any business that doesn't support them.
    It is true that the mass shooters have mainly committed their shootings in gun free zones. So if I don't feel comfortable being in one I can't see why you would object. I never "pack heat" I conceal carry in a holster that you will never see. It cover the trigger to prevent accidental discharge.
    You are incorrect about something. The enemy is criminals with guns. I am not a criminal and never will be. Now people like you are a political enemy if you want to deny me the right to protect myself but not a physical enemy. Even politically you decided to be my enemy. I didn't pick you. I am happy to leave you alone and you can carry a gun or not. I don't care. But when you decided to deny me my rights I'm forced to do everything I can to stop you from doing that POLITICALLY. I sure wont do business with you under any circumstance. I would prefer not have anything to do with you whatsoever.

    @frigginhell I am curious about one thing. If we were in a restaurant and a criminal came in and started shooting, would you mind if I shot him and stopped him from killing an innocent by stander. ( I know when to shoot and not shoot I won't shoot unless I have a clear shot.)

    @EzraBlade I've heard this piece of fiction far to often. The "what if" scenario the hardly "ever is". The stats the nra like to quote about gun owners defending themselves against criminals to make their point are nearly entirely small business owners who are stopping robbers. Convenient store owners and liquor stores and of that nature. I have no problem with that at all. I'm all for it. Put a sawed off shotgun under the counter and cut em in half with it. Your scenario, the heroic conceal carry guy who rushes in to save the day, it's just a story. I'm not saying it never happens. It does but it's very rare. In fact, some of the most widely distributed accounts of it online are pure fiction. They've never happened. Like the little girl who saved her family when the mexican robbers came after them. It didn't happen. When faced with a lack of real stories to support this fantasy those who defend it make them up or as "what if".
    I'm not asking what if. I am saying that they are calling for people to arm themselves. I am saying they are calling those who object their foes. I am saying that people with guns going around calling people without guns the enemy and their foe sound as bad if not worse than the government overreach they're whining about. It sounds like an armed mob mentality. Mobs play to the lowest common denominator.

    I'm more concerned about service when I go to a store, but hey, I'm always for consumer awareness and as this cuts both ways it seems fair enough.

    Here's one we might be able to agree on vance--albeit for very different reasons I'm sure...I would use such a site...to avoid place where I might be surrounded by a bunch of pistol-packing-patrons......(e specially if that establishment sold alcohol)---No thanks...Don't want to be anywhere some wanna-be "Dodge City Saloon"....I'll just take my chances ----------without having to be around a bunch of wanna-be Rambos...

    @jaybebo84 I'm on my own side, just pointing out the divisiveness. I believe that not everything should be political.

    There were a few stores in my area that posted the no concealed carry after columbine, two of which we patronized for quite a while before the signs went up. When one of the owners asked why he had not seen us I told him I don't knowingly break the law and by entering his restaurant I would be breaking it. At some point the sign came down.As far as big box stores go, I try to support the local lumber, hardware and electrical stores which provide better service anyway. Now if they would just change their business hours to cover those of us coming home from work.

    @wonka45ACP I agree, but most of them do 9-5 which is an issue for someone who works for a living out of the area. I would prefer stopping at the NAPA store on the way home at 6pm, or the ACE, or the lumber yard but they close. I have a short commute of 30 min but most here commute 90 miles to NYC or jobs in NJ or Philly so they head out at 5am and get back at 7pm so the box stores are the only option.

    I wouldn't use it but I don't see why others shouldn't it it's that important to them. It might be of more value to some if they posted which hookers were armed and which weren't. Might save a few robberies?

    My hookers have arms.....but aren't armed! I use the TSA rules.....strip search them and/or require that clothes aren't optional.....the less clothing they wear, the safer I feel! LOL

    It might be nice to know in advance since I have a permit and frequently carry.
    Here in Oregon, a business can exclude permit holders who are legally carrying, but it has little teeth. If they discover you are carrying, they can only ask you to leave and have you charged with trespassing if you refuse.
    I usually ignore them. Unless they have a metal detector, they would never know. As a cab driver, I often have to get people out of the E.R. and other "gun free zones." I don't have a gun safe in my cab (I do in my private auto), and I refuse to leave my weapon unsecured.

    I don't know if there is Friend or Foe in my area, but I will look it up. I like the idea of knowing which businesses stand on either side. I do have a concealed carry liscence. But if I wanted to patronize a certain establishment, it would be good to know where I can't take my gun ahead of time. I am more likely to choose friend establishments, but I know I will not get everything I need or want for my child at those estaishments. It's just good to know. Also, how can businesses really know if a person is carrying a concealed gun?
  • #95

    I'm sure you probably know this, but just because a buisness places a sign in their window stating no concealed weapons allowed does'nt mean much, if you have a concealed weapons licences you can carry your weapon while you're in that buisness. I run into this problem at work when Kentucky passed the CCW law, a sign was placed on the front door of the office i worked in stating no firearms allowed. Being a state government office we thought that it was legal, however one of my fellow employee's was a CCW instructor and after making some phone calls the sign came down and was never an issue again.

    That depends on the state some states you can cc in stores that say no weapons allowed but if asked to leave and you decline you can be hit with trespassing also a place of employment can terminate for noncompliance to a weapons policy @zeke

    I think businesses have a right to post weather or not they support the second, however if they do not it doesn't make them my enemy. They are just doing what they think is right. Hopefully signs promoting the second will deter robberies and shootings.

    So if a store has a product you want, at the best price you wouldn't shop there because of their stand on guns? Yup. That makes a ton of sense.

    "It's a good thing" (Martha Stewart). When some crazed maniac comes in looking to kill everyone at a business, I'd rather be in the business where lots of people will be armed, not in the one where I'll be just one of the fish getting shot in the barrel. And judging from past experiences, the psychotic killers go where THEY KNOW everyone will be unarmed. For sure. Make sure to not just post it on the internet, but to post BIG SIGNS in front of the business(es) "NO GUNS HERE" or "STAFF AND CUSTOMERS ARE ARMED", as the case may be, to let the Adam Lanza wannabees know which is which, lol.
