I like their reply and now I can shop there in good conscience. I like to follow the rules when I can and I avoid shopping anywhere that displays an anti-gun policy by sign or other action.
Does that make more sense?
Actually, I would refer to the previous comment from a Home Depot employee regarding that North Carolina statute. If what he says is correct, then the local store is not in compliance with corporate policy, and I will guarantee you that the guy in the local store is not the legal owner of the premises. Even the in control of can be questioned, as that control comes from the corporate level.
If you see that sign, report them.

Here in FL there is no need to ask any business about their pro or anti position on firearms.
Signs mean absolutely nothing...there are very few of them anyway.
If one is carrying in the correct manner, no one is going to know your SD business.
Get on with life.

Most corporations do not allow individual store/managers to set a lot of "policy" for the same reason many states (and hopefully more) have "preemption" laws on guns--if anybody and everybody sets their own rules, no right hand knows what the left is doing. Franchises, on the other hand, are individually owned and operated, paying a hefty fee to use the brand name and products. Home Depot are coprorate stores, not franchises.
In the case of the NC store having a "no-guns" sign, I would document it by photograph and submit it to corporate HQ as a complaint. I guarantee you HD does not want to lose business to Lowes, especially in NC!

Hello All you gun lubers....We need to tell Home Depot when we shop there we support them. Lord knows I sure let others know when I will not be back. If we do not tell them we will continue to get what we are getting. Off my soap box now, thanks for listening.
