    Smile "No gun Signs" Poll

    I think it is important that those that carry respect the wishes of business owners and disarm if necessary. If those that carry disrespect others it makes everyone look bad. Of course if everyone would Respect others no one might have to carry to defend themselves. Be Safe!

    I answered that I do not go in...armed or not.

    However...in all honesty, I should say that I really don't look very hard (if at all) when I am entering a restaurant or retail store...partly because the signs have no legal weight here and I sort of figure it is up to the owner to post in such a way that I can't miss it if he/she is serious about it.

    If my armed status is noticed and an objection is made, I am happy to leave...whether there is a sign or not.

    PS...it is good that today we can have an at least somewhat rational discussion...a big thanks to Luke for eliminating yesterday's problem child.

    WHAT?!? I'm still here!

    My concealed firearm affects no one's ability to make a profit in their business, it does not harm them, it does not cause property damage, it does not require clean up, it emits no odor (except sometimes a faint Hoppe's), it causes no noise.... I just really don't see my concealed firearm as infringing upon anything, except for a criminal's ability to accomplish their goals unhindered.

    It depends.
    Do I see the sign?

    Do I really, REALLY "need" to buy anything from a posted POB? (If yes, I'll usually disarm. However, I usually find what I want elsewhere.)

    "IF" I have to do business with a posted business and I feel disarming will GREATLY increase the danger & risk, then my answer is "concealed means concealed". (BTW; there are VERY few places that fit this criteria in my day-to-day activities.)

    Finally, I will speak to managers, write letters & drop emails.

    I go in shooting. It's the only safe way.

    You shouldn't have to worry about anybody shooting back, at least...

    At least not from certain people.

    I was wondering something. Those that feel it is a violation of a business owners rights to carry past a no guns sign, does it matter if your an LEO? On or off duty doesn't matter.
