This is a discussion on No Guns = No Money cards within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Had 250 of these made. I borrowed ideas from others ideas, combined these to make my own. Have been giving to my CC friends to ...

I suggest you change the word "unlicensed" to "illegal" on the back side of your card. That would provide greater utility in states such as Vermont, Alaska and Arizona.

Great idea. If someone can give me the text that would be more universal. I as a graphic designer will make a "pretty" and universal one in a PDF format for all to use. Send me a pm and I will provide my email to receive the proper universal text to make it for you. If you want state seals and such please let me know. Thanks and God Bless
Play in the heavens baby girl. For we will again one day see you.

Good way to get the message to those business owners.
Those are well-made and pleasantly concise.
If 'mental illness' is a main cause of gun-grabbing sentiments, then mental illness is the true enemy.
The March of Dimes worked. There's an opportunity there for being pro-active in defense of your rights.
Alternatlvely, please just actually give actual money occasionally.
Hope you have fun doing this. Personally, I believe that when I spit in the ocean the level of the water will go up. Hey--if this makes you feel better and makes you think that the bigger companies, who are the ones who usually have the "no gun" signs, will change their opinion, have at it--- IMO, you are sadly mistaken, considering the asylum run by its inmates and formerly known as the USA. I do, however, find your cards to be well written and to the point and can congratulate you on your initiative--I just think it is spitting in the ocean.
I like that card a lot.
I haven't been able to figure out what an 'Illegal Gun" is. The gun isn't illegal, the possession is. So I'd have to say, use the wording, "No Illegally Possessed Guns." In Vermont it's illegal to concealed carry if you have done the things listed on the card, but they don't check that unless you do something wrong with the gun, in which case that charge is added on. I've never been to Vermont, I'd be surprised if there are many "No Guns" signs on stores or other places of business.

BUT if enough spit lands in the ocean; the level will rise. When I was going to High School I was a ... wrestler <LOL> there I said it
Sometimes, to make weight, I would sometimes spit in a pop bottle throughout the day. Teachers laughed ... kids made fun ... but it worked!
With the up hill battle faced with today's LEGAL UPSTANDING LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS who CCW. If enough of us continue to spit in the ocean the level will rise. And any rise despite how little, is still an increase. YMMV
Signs have no force of law, so personally I don't care. I carry concealed.
Cute idea though. I doubt most larger businesses would get the message since the card is being handed to a non management, non-decision maker.

Do what you can; then do what you must
Well thought out & a great idea. Will it do any good? I doubt it unless the establishment banning carrying of guns gets so many that it at least makes them think.
Not that you want to add so much information that the card gets too crowded but you might also want add " Your business has been added to a 'do not shop' list widely circulated among the legal gun carrying community".

Do you disarm before you walk in to hand them this card?
Just wondering. :-)
