      Businesses that don't want us

      Time to have a list of both local and national businesses that have anti-gun policies for their customers so for those of us who choose not to patronize anti-gun businesses, we are more informed. Please put the name of the business, it's location (town and state), and whether or not you contacted the business regarding their policy. If you did contact and hear back, please let us know the reposes. Note: this is not a thread to post if you work for a company that is anti-gun for its employees.

      Edit to add: This is not a call to boycott thread. It is simply a list of businesses that have anti-gun policies. What you choose to do with the information is up to you.

      While I haven't been in every store, I have yet to find one with the LEGAL sign posted in the Conroe/Woodlands/Spring area yet. Gotta love Texas, hot summers and all.

      All Texas Hospitals (guess I better not need ER care or surgery of anykind)

      All U.S. Post Offices (who needs snail-mail anyway?)


      San Patricio County and Aransas County jails

      All Texas State Prisons (I don't wanna get arrested)

      All Texas schools (who need education?) (Local school just started a clays shooting program, wonder how they're working that out?)


      ............

      I'm not so sure I'm ready to brand any business who has a No Concealed Weapons as someone who doesn't "want" my business.

      Maybe uninformed or bowing to corporate lawyers.

      This is a bit like my personal policy of not going in restaurants that allow smoking. The owners don't know, don't care, and (until the laws change) are within their rights to allow smoking. It could bug me if I let it, but not as much as the smoke would affect me if I went in.

      If I made it a policy to not go anywhere that forbid (forbad?) concealed guns, I'd miss out on doing busines with people that I need for my business. And they would probably never miss me.

      Now if they should start supporting anti-2nd amendment legislation, that would be a concern, and one that would call for a letter of protest.

      Fortunately, I live in Texas, where guns have the governor's approval. And for now I have better things to do with my energy than be angry over not being able to take my gun in to the hospital.

      I am pretty sure that all banks and post offices are going against concealed handguns. Funny thing though if I was going to rob them or do anything stupid why would I pay attention to the no carry signs.

      I know I work for the city here and they have the no guns for the office and the garage. Not only that Applebee's has the no handgun sticker on the door. But it doesnt say no concealed handguns so I have to double check on that one (as I heard a rumor it had to actually say no concealed handgun on the sign).

      Most of the credit unions here are pro carry for members and employees, My wife works for one of the biggest CU's in the state

      NC State law does not specify the exact signage required, only that it be posted at all entrances.

      NC State law prohibits concealed carry at banks.

      (I'm not touching the post office can of worms)

      ETA: laws have changed, cocealed carry in banks OK as long as no sign is posted prohibiting it

      Applebee's (and all the other big chains) are kind of a moot point since we're not allowed to carry there even if there was no sign; due to the rule about not carrying where you can purchase and consume alcohol on premises.

      True I forgot about that since I dont drink. To me I think it is supid. Of course if I was going to rob a place or something I would go where law bidding citizens werent allowed to be strapped. It is safer to rob a bank, any place that serves alcohol, or doesnt allowed carry, than to rob a gas station or something were everyone has the pontential of being armed.

      The Sportsmans Warehouse in Colorado Springs had clearly visible signs in front of the store (outside) prohibiting firearms within with the exception of on duty uniformed officers. I haven't been in the one here in Lacey, WA yet, but intend to carry a few of these in when I do:

      Ohhh I want some of those. But my luck they would just get thrown away.

      I know about NC and banks. I meant banks all over the country. Post offices are classified as a government building so techincally you arent suppose to carry in there.

      Post offices are Federal property and technically only on duty federal agents may carry legally. No gray area available for interpretation. Not all post signs as a reminder so just plan your errands accordingly. It will be a Federal offense to violate (not state, county or otherwise local), posted or not. Bad ju-ju.

      Texas Law says you have to have their 30-06 sign in English and Spainish. Those hardware store no guns signs mean nothing in the eyes of TEXAS LAW!

      I was surpised that there is no law in Florida against carrying in a bank. PO,schools,and hospitals. Of course Gov buildings.

      That's part of the reason I like Colorado.

      I guess I'll throw one of those "chains" out there. Buffalo Wild Wings in Fort Collins, CO doesn't allow concealed carry in their restaurant.

      That's interesting. I wonder if the Sportsman's Warehouse by me in Northern Colorado is the same. I have carried there, but I guess I wasn't paying enough attention to see whether there were signs or not. I must have just assumed that since they sold firearms.... I don't go there much, but next time I go, I'll have to look and give an update here.

      In Alabama you are allowed to carry in a resturant where alcohol is served, just not a nightclub/bar. As long as the establishment's alcohol sales are less than 50% of it's total sales your okay. It's the same rule for allowing minors into your business.

      Hmm, so you could go off of whether there are kids around to figure out whether you can carry?

      For these large chains, like Buffalo Wild Wings and Kroger, would CCW policy be determined at corporate or by the local manager or owner? I know the local guy does get some leeway in how he runs the store.
