    I'm probably wrong

    Of course, the main thing to do here is to have the NRA announce at the next convention, that the NRA would appreciate it if members NOT use a Marriott Hotel.

    The best way to fix this is to hit them in the pocket book.

    There's a Marriot here in CO that has a gun show coming up. The one I'm referring to I know to be under corporate management because the franchise went into foreclosure.

    So I would say corporate probably doesn't give a flying leap as long as money is coming in the door.

    Cool

    Remember, in NC, if alcoholo is being sold at the dinner for consumption, CCW is prohibited under current law. It's not Marriott, it is the state. Now that you've crucified Marriott, check with your legislators.

    The membership should never accept that.

    I concur.

    I always employ the French phrase that literally translates, "You make me BM." [Tu m& fais chi&r]; it efficiently relays the message that the other party is doing something outrageously stupid.

    I concur! How stupid can they get?

    That they would book such a group and wait until after the event started is outrageous.

    Here is my email to Marriott:


    If and when you get a response from Corporate please post it. I'd love to know how important gun owners business is to them.

    That's easy to say--but what exactly is Marriot "corporate policy"? You've given an assumption. Don't spout assumptions; give facts. Assumptions only give birth to myths and misunderstandings.

    I stay about 100 nights a year in hotels and in the recent past held Marriott's highest rewards level. I just called in and provided my rewards number to add to my complaint.

    Has anyone recieved any word back from the NRA on why it chose Charlotte or has anyone written them a letter stating their concerns, that it could potentially make them lose members. Just curious. I'm sure some have written them I was just wondering if there had been any responces back.

    Cool

    Again. I'm sure alcohol was available at the dinner sold for on premises consumption. That is our current state law. Has nothing to do with Marriott.

    Of course if the dinner was booked at KFC, carry would be perfectly legal.

    I'll be damned! I just got a phone call from Marriott letting me know that it was "handled wrong" and "the action would be taken to ensure that it doesn't happen again."

    I didn't press the lady on what as I figured she was a secretary, but they at least admitted fault.

    That is the case, BUT if that was what they were guarding against there would be no reason to post the sign, since it was already in place. The manager actually created a 2nd legal issue.

    I think that's what he meant by this.
