    Unhappy Gotta find a new place to get a haircut.

    There's this nice salon I've been going to for the past ten years or so to get my hair cut. Prices are reasonable and they do a good job. I've always made appointments with the same stylist and tipped her well.
    Had an appointment last Friday. Pulled up in front of the place and there it is; a no guns sign in the window that wasn't there before.
    I drove away and called them as soon as I got home, asked for my stylist.
    Told her I got there and saw a sign in the window that said I wasn't welcome.
    She asked what sign that was.
    Told her about the no guns sign.
    "You carry a gun?" She asked.
    Told her I may or may not have had one with me every time she's cut my hair since January.
    Then I told her to pass on to her manager that while it was her right to post the sign it was my right to spend my money elsewhere.
    Told her I was really gonna miss having her do my hair and if and when the sign came down I'd be back.
    I'm a child of the 60's, but I got over it.

    Don't be sad, you were looking for a hair stylist when you found her (them). I wounder what got into them all the sudden? I'm thinking the Sheriff maybe! It would be nice to talk with the owner as well to probe some.

    I'd be sucking if my barber posted. I sport a flattop, so I need a BARBER. Real barbers are hard to find these days.

    The owner probably only conceives of criminals when she pictures people with guns in her store, and is unaware of the law-abiding concealed carry community. You might ask her just who she is trying to keep out of her store and explain that a sign will not stop a criminal who has violent intent.

    You made the right move. All the sign does is tell the criminals where to go!

    That sucks. The place I go is owned and staffed by redneck country girls. I might be able to get a discount for carrying in there. Hmmmm.

    Good work calling and explaining to her your point of view. Manger's and Owner's are often easily swayed by the recommendation of a consultant, lawyer, etc...and sometimes forget about their customer. If we don't speak up, who will! Good job!

    I think you made the right call....gotta make sacrifices sometimes, I've fortunetly not had to yet, but I'm sure I will sometime in the future....also, i've yet to find a good barber since the one I went to since I was oh, I don't know, 10, retired. I'm half Korean, and I have that stubborn asian hair, and if its not cut just right in the back, then I have a permanant cowlick...the woman that cut my hair was Korean and a very close family friend...she owned her own place, and just last year, decided to retire. So now I'm on the hunt...lol Hopefully you can persaude them to take that stupid sticker sign down.
    Better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6

    I will never understand the people who think a sign will stop the criminals. <sigh>

    Good work calling and explaining your POV. Maybe they will rethink if they get more calls like that.

    Good for you. It is good to see a man stand up for his convictions. Keep up the good work.

    Perhaps, as a form of protest, we could get some sheep decals made up, and stick them to the window right next to the "no guns" signs....

    Better might be a sign reading "criminals welcome, gun free zone"

    Thank you for standing up for our rights. Be careful selecting a new barber; I did last week, and my brother thought I lost a fight with a weed-whacker.

    A real barber shop has gun magazines to read while you wait and no silly sign on the door.

    I'd be willing to bet someone came in there for a cut that didnt conceal well enough. Maybe laid back for a wash and exposed the weapon. The owner may not have even been aware of ccw and was appauled that someone would carry a gun into the place.
    So even if they take the sign down, when you go back they'll know you are carrying, thus some will probably treat you different , you know, give you the sheep eye.
