    In all fairness, you have to consider the business as the manager's house, and he has the right to set the conditions of patronage. Would you just let anyone enter your house carrying a firearm, whether open or concealed?

    You, on the other hand, have the right to patronize his business or not. If you think the product's not worth leaving your gun in the car, then by all means, go to another place. That's your option, your choice.

    As for me, I understand that I cannot carry my firearm anywhere, any time. That's a fact of life, and I can deal with it. If I don't want to go somewhere that I can't carry, I don't go. If I feel okay going there and not being armed, I go.

    If a gunstore says "no loaded guns allowed" I comply. Besides, every employee there is usually armed. I'm not too worried.
    Amen to this one.

    I respect my life and common sense above ANY and ALL signs. Concealed is concealed.

    I see the logic in that. But we had the Von Maur shooting in the Westroads Mall here in Omaha where its a gun free location and an armed citizen might possibly have made a difference. Yet the mall and Von Maur aren't getting sued for it. Is anyone suing Virgina Tech over it? Anyone suing the Federal Government over the Fort Hood shooting?

    Matt, you have made some excellent points there, thanks for bringing them up, it made me reflect and while I still agree with OldVet in the context that you can go elsewhere, I do understand your legal/non-legal aspect of it. I guess it just depends on where you reside.

    You can believe what you want, but this tired, old cliche kind of falls apart when you're stuck in a cell and surrounded by the scum of the earth for the rest of your life. Then you might think, "Maybe if I had..."

I believe that it is understood that if a place of buisness asks you to disarm, then they are liable for my safety. I would certainly sue, and most likely lose.
    Maybe more people should do that.

    Yes, they would probably lose, but it might also start to get a point across - and it's not cheap to fight lawsuits, even when you win.
