    The salesman that sold me my current vehicle was carrying himself! We got on the topic of guns when he noticed my ar15.com license plate frame. During the test drive we showed each other our carry weps and talked more about guns than the truck i was looking to purchase, lol.

    Funny you should mention this. I happen to work at a dealership in Kansas. It's posted with the official AG sign in all entrances/exits. Our owner is a very big outdoor enthusiast and gun owner. I have yet to have a conversation with him regarding his personal views on the matter.

    Well I'm actually in favor of Dealerships posting "No Guns" signs!

    The only time I have ever been seriously concerned that I was carrying a gun was while trying to get away from a "car salesman"!

    (okay, just kidding!)

    A bit off-topic: I posted this question, then when I came back to check for responses, CombatCarry was off-line. I then asked on another forum...which is off-line today, when I try to check for responses there. Is it a conspiracy of car dealers?

    No guns = no sale, and I'm NOT shy about telling them why!

    I almost bought a truck there.

    Glad Pollard got my money instead.

    Make sure you are writing these car businesses to let them know why they lost a sale. Tell them where you bought your new vehicle instead.

    This will make them rethink their policies when it starts hitting them in the pocketbook and they realize that law abiding gun owners are NOT going to sit back and take it anymore.

    I can understand why care dealers might want to be posted. Well especially used care dealers, There were reports of the local Ford dealer posting but then there were reports of it being taken down the next week. I guess they figured that they don’t want to drive away any business. (no pun intended)
