    No Firearms Allowed sign....but good

    I saw this and I gotta say, it is certainly the first welcoming sign I have seen. They must have had issues with open carry in the past.

    There's a local Mexican restaurant that has a prominent sign that welcomes concealed carry on the premises. Its nice to see signs that aren't restricting me from carrying.

    If they are restricting an otherwise legal activity I still would not shop there. But that's me. I bet their issue is that they don't want to explain that it's legal to someone that complains.

    If Open Carry is legal in the state the store is located in, then I do have a problem with the sign.

    I have a huge problem with the sign. IMO anybody that thinks this is cool or a good idea is not pro 2A. One could flash their NRA card in my face or have 30000 posts on this forum declaring their love for the 2A and their support of it and it wouldn't mean doo doo.

    Similar signs appear in all the large gun stores I visit in Ohio, Michigan, and West Virginia. Gun shows, otoh, have no tolerance for armed customers whatsoever.

    If they sell firearms I am fine with it. I have seen way too many people with little or no experience in these places mishandle firearms. Conceal is concealed. Most people that conceal have the legal permit and some training.
    There is no permit required for OC here.
    Because they work on firearms they set a policy to have them checked. It is for safety. Customers could be bringing in defective and possibly loaded fire arms into the building. Since they have a policy against OC you can make a choice to shop there or not. It is unfair to call them against 2A.

    I do not use gunsmith services from places like this or any other chain stores.

    So, because THEY work on broken firearms, people must surrender their operation ones for safety? How does that make any sense?

    Hmmmm, I'm pretty sure using their ability to disarm otherwise legal citizens is the definition of against 2A. Their are members of the Brady Bunch who are hunters! They have no issue's with long guns....just handguns. Are they PRO 2A??? You can't pick and choose, your either pro or anti. When you start using your person opinion to disarm people against their will you are an anti, plain and simple. The fact that people can choose not to go in there is irrelevant.

    Maybe it's more of an anti-shoplifting thing instead of anti-open carry???

    a friend of mine has a gun shop, he posted a decal on the door that says that there is nothing inside worth dying for. I think it sends the right message.

    How does restricting OC deter shoplifting? I don't need a visible gun on my hip to shoplift!

    As in shoplifting firearms...

    I was just thinking of some reason why they would post that sign; I don't agree with it.

    the guy at the counter wouldn't notice someone putting one of their guns in an empty oc holster. Or swapping one gun for another.
