    Buy Buy Baby vs Babies R Us (Gunbuster signs)

    For parents of young children like me or grandparents buying for their new grand kids, just noticed that the Babies R Us's here in the metro Detroit area have gunbuster signs. Buy Buy Baby does not. Not sure if it's corporate policy nationwide or just here. I know where I'll be spending my money at from now on. Just sharing.

    To my knowledge, here in S. FL, the only businesses that post no gun signs (Outside of those that are already prohibited by law) are Toys/Babies-R-Us. Unlike some Applebees, etc., that others post about, I think it's a corporate decision with the "R-Us" stores.

    Off topic but there is a smartphone app called "GunFreeZone". As you go about your business you can mark locations as either "no guns" or "gun friendly" and they will also be visible by other users. It hasn't been out a long time so in many areas there aren't a lot of entries but the more people that use it the quicker it will become very useful.

    One of the cool things about the app is that unlike most, the developer doesn't collect any personal information from your phone.

    Toys/Babies R Us is corporate policy. :( As a parent of young children, it's quite irritating, but thank goodness for online retailers.

    Toy/Babies-R-Us has been known to ask uniformed officers to leave the store or remove their weapons. They are VERY ANTI and should not get get any of our business.

    The only places I see gunbuster signs in the Tampa Bay area are some gun shops and all gun shows.

    It's a r-us corporate policy. Both toy's and baby's are posted everywhere I've seen. The only good thing I can say about the outlet is it appears they are going down the tube and closing the doors. I think they have all closed here in the Richmond area.

    A "fitting end" IMO for any business that does not have any regard for the 2nd

    I have been to the the R-US stores here in TX (Sugar Land). They have a gunbuster sign at the one i have been to, but since it's not the one RECOGNIZED by THE STATE OF TEXAS (30.06 sign). I still carried mine in their store.

    Good thing I don't read any signs posted on places of business. I completely believe it is the business owners right, to prohibit what they want, and I will not violate that, but I will not go out of my way to look for their signs...

    Funny thing with the T 'R us here. The sign is in white letters on clear backing on the sliding door. Down about kneehigh to a kid. On the part that slides out of sight when you approach.

    Not that it carries any force of law here, but still, it's kind of silly.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    I noticed the no-gun sign on my way out of Babies-R-Us a couple of weeks ago- they don't have weight in Colorado so I don't look for them. I think they're more afraid of photography than guns as price comparison is really killing them.

    I saw their signs...once.
    The 1911 is an antiquated weapons system but then again, so am I.

    Here unless you have an ARMED security guard and you preform physical or electronic searches for firearms, those signs mean nothing.
