    Probably a bad idea. If he should happen to kill a robber, a lawyer could turn that against him.

    Because it could scare customers away?

    Lol at all the oc people just conceal your gun when you go in if you can legally do so. If not don't shop there if it pisses you off that much.

    I must say that is one of the most idiotic things I have heard in a long time. Maybe all stores should just post no gun signs and change all the laws so they have the force of law. Got news for you. It is not contest between CC and OC. The Brady bunch just loves reading this forum when there is an issue about OC and CC.

    i go to a dialysis center that has a no firearms sticker on the door. My kidneys are bad, and it is one of quite a fw that i actually agree it should be.half of us there are dying anyways, BUT....
    i disagree with the no guns allowed on a shop door, its their prerogative to run off all of the legal carriers and their dollars, but it really only lets people that are carrying ILLEGALLY into their business with a gun, and of course not everyone, but im sure alot of them are intending to use it for no good.
    but hey, im just some old war vet that refuses to shop in a place that wont let a cripple take a leak...what do i know.(that includes gas stations-if i gotta use a restroom and you refuse, there are 25 others out there that want my money)

    A lon time ago I worked at what was then called GI Joes, at the sporting goods counter. The store policy there was to check all guns at customer service and have them bring them back to the counter so people weren't walking around carrying rifles, etc... for "safety" reasons. I can kind of understand that, we had some pretty crazy people come in and really scare me with how they handled their firearms, but to allow CC and deny OC seems really odd to me.
    Walk softly ...

    ^^^^^^^^Maybe I can lend a different perspective on this..^^^^^



    It is LEGAL for women to go topless in public in the Province of Ontario and perhaps a few places in here in the states.
    Is it legal for a female to be topless in public places where men can be topless

    You are a store /business owner, restaurateurs, etc, etc,etc,,,

    You put a sign stating that you, the proprietor, do not want women to "open carry" what God has given them, but "concealed carry" is fine.

    Why you say, its legal and you don't know too many guys who would object, right?

    I think the same argument could be said for open carrying a firearm.
    Some people are gonna think its fine, and unfortunately, some people are going to take offense.
    They are trying to appease every one of their customers, and that would be counterproductive.
    Its a trade-off, but at least we're making headway, so we should celebrate the step in the right direction, albeit a baby step.

    Some stores like Bass Pro Shops have a similar sign. Upon asking once upon a time, I was told that they referred to firearms brought in for repair and not firearms being carried. Also, for example, Cincinnati Bass Pro is attached to a mall and has signs warning "no weapons past this point" at exits that go into the mall itself. I assume others may do the same.

    Gander Mountain has a sign here like that. Keep it concealed and there isn't a problem.

    I think it's more a matter of not wanting someone walking in with a loaded gun on their hip (or wherever else they OC on their person) and trying their LOADED gun in holsters, checking magazines for it, etc. Which is VERY unsafe, VERY 'unprofessional', and VERY disrespectful to the people working there.

    I think it's more of a matter of safety, not a matter of denying 2A rights. If it's concealed, it stays there- concealed. If you're planning on checking accessories, and you're a CCer, you will unload before entering the building and let the person at the door check to make sure that it is unloaded. I'm sure that it also helps with potential insurance issues; kind of like a sign at an automotive shop that tells people not to enter the service bays for safety/insurance reasons.

    If I had a similar store in a state that allowed OC, I would put the same sign up- it's not about denying rights, it's about making sure that my store is safe for everyone. I wouldn't want to be in a store where someone whose proficiency I am not sure of is trying to cram a loaded gun into a 'strange' holster to check the fit.

    I'm not trying to upset anyone, but can we please try to look at it from the owner/operator's point of view before we get mad and start making accusations?

    2A rights do not trump the rights of the owners of private property. Your right to swing your arm stops where my nose begins. My house, my rules.

    I don't allow cussing in my office. I suppose that's another right that I'm trampling on.

    Now, I happen to allow legal carry in accordance with SC state law in my place of business, but that's because I choose to. I respect the rights of those that don't, as well as the sub-rules that they specify in their place of business.
