    Not just for carrying there. If they found out he was carrying concealed (unlikely) they would have to ask him to leave. If he refused to leave, he could THEN be arrested for trespassing.

    Don't usually and now won't buy from Goodyear. Perhaps an Admin can set up a running list of anti-self-defense corporations with their official policies. A brief internet search has shown that some state-level carry organizations have them, but a repository for such information would be nice to have.

    I agree, I sent a letter asking to verify this and if they did not rebuke it I would take my business elsewhere in order to preserve my safety and the safety of my family because the only people that will carry in their store will be criminanls. Letting them know customers will no longer be customers is the only way to combat ignorance because the more of us that write the more they will see money leaving.

    I thanked them for their reply and confirming their lack of concern for customer safety and informed them I would be taking my business elsewhere and would inform all I come in contact with. No reply to that one.

    My letter to Goodyear, and predicted reply -

    Message:
    I just got my concealed handgun permit so that I have the means to protect me & my family, if, God forbid I need to. I have been following a story that Goodyear has a "No Gun" policy on their property. In my 35 years of buying tires, I guess I have bought GY tires for 4-6 vehicles. Due to the "No Gun" policy of GY, I can no longer do business with a company that does not allow me to protect myself or my family while on their property. If GY decides in the future to rescind this unpopular policy, please contact me and I will reconsider my position doing business with Goodyear, Kelly Murphy
    I did leave my mailing address, & phone number.

    GY reply -

    My reply to GY -

    Though I respect your policy, I can in no way see how this statement ensures anyone's safety - " In an effort to ensure the safety and security of our associates and customers, we have had a clear company policy regarding weapons in the workplace, since 2004". Do the corporate folks that make these decisions really think that a person who is NOT legal to carry weapon and is set out to do harm is going to abide by this policy? The only people that this misguided thinking has the potential harm to are the law abiding citizens who took the time to study, pass, extensive background check and factually have a MUCH lower chance of committing any kind of felony. I will take my business elsewhere and pray that I never hear any news about a Goodyear store involved in tragic shooting event, Kelly Murphy

    It is going to take a monumental effort by "us" to change the way these businesses think. This forum is a good start, we need to stay vigilant with our cause, if you (like me) are on other forums, we need to get the word out in as many ways we can, Kelly

    As much as I think Goodyear's policy is misguided, I am curious about one thing. How many of you, that are boycotting Goodyear in righteous indignation, work for a company with the same policy?

    I let them know that I expected a generic response from them so I copied one of the other emails and sent it along with the explanation of such.

    It is difficult to do but I also try not to shop where I am not wanted.

    I guess that means Goodyear is willing to take responsibility for their customer's safety while in one of their establishments. I wonder if anyone has approached their corporate lawyers with that notion.

    What is the difference between a daycare or health facility versus a tire shop? To me there is none.

    Where do you get the assumption they are assuming responsibility for everyone's safety? Not allowing guns does not make them responsible for your safety? If someone is CCwing and the place is robbed or someone murdered, did the CCWer assume responsibility for everyone's safety?
