Thread: Oh the sky is falling!

    I was just in your State before the law took effect and could not help but smile at the histeria. It will pass quickly except maybe for Madison. In the country, signs will never go up.

  3. This to shall pass

    In Ohio there was a flood of signs when CC first past, most have quietly gone away.
    As of Sept 30 of this year we can carry restaurants that serve alcohol. As soon as this passed many restaurants started posting, but some have already started removing them. I'm sure most will be gone in a year.

    The removal will not happen automatically though. You need to educate business owners.
    Don't argue with them, but let them know they are advertising to criminals that they are unarmed and unable to defend themselves.

    Ohioans for concealed carry has a good letter titled 'what every business owner needs to know about concealed carry'
    This letter is specific to Ohio, but you could easily modify it to fit your state.

    Do not carry where it is prohibited. Part of the argument against these signs is that CHL holders are law abiding citizens. If you carry where you are not allowed you are not law abiding (at least not in Ohio) and are only providing evidence against us.

    I simply will not patronize a company who does not trust me with a firearm.

    Go to your regular places and inform them if the signs go up, you leave and will spend no money, their argument about blood everywhere has been disproven in every state that passed open or concealed carry.

It's really rare to see one in MN now.
    I believe the "standard line" goes something like: "The streets will run red with blood!" (AKs and ARs and Glocks.... OH MY!)

    Of course, the standard retort is but to observe that an antigunner is typically a Liberal who hasn't been mugged, assaulted or raped yet. (Of course, it could also be equally valid an observation that ex-post facto "education" in the realities of life can be hazardous to your health. Forewarned are forearmed? At least amongst fast learners. LOL!)

    Now there is the problem. Trying to make a considered and statistically sound appeal, based on logic, is a lost cause for a bunch of folks who typically rely on emotion in place of reasoning in their day to day existance.

    I agree Gunny, but I am one very stubborn SOB.

    GG and Nightmare have hit the nail squarely on the head! LOL

    You simply cannot make a commonsense argument with STUPID!

    Good luck!

    I was surprise when I went to a local bank the other day(WI) they didn't have a 'no guns' sign. Maybe they realize a robber won't give a chit about such a sign.

    Signs

    One of the things that blows my mind is ccw states that dont take the time or effort to pass legislation to create an official standard sign for that state. I have to go omaha from kansas and I looked up NE law and its just a series of suggestions bur no clear way for me to identify unfriendly establishments. Laws are black ink on white paper making for a lot of grey sometimes; no need to make more grey.
