Turning Lemons into Lemonade
Unfortunately, my local bakery was robbed at gun point about a week ago.
My wife and I wind up there at least once a week, and while it's not in a "bad part of town", we've had 2 friends robbed at gunpoint within 100 yards of it in the past couple of years -- one at an ATM and another paying too much attention to his IPOD vs. his surroundings.
While the bakery has excellent products, they have been posted as "no handguns" for longer than I've had my CCW. I've reluctantly continued my patronage although with less frequency than I would have had they not been CCW unfriendly.
A few days after the robbery, I thought I'd leave a comment on the local news site to point out the NO gun policy and it's ineffectiveness, and also to ask Buskens to change this policy. I also planned to stop by and ask them to consider changing their policy as well. However, when I stopped by today, I was pleasantly surprised that the no-gun signs had been dropped already. :wave:
I am considering how I may use this further with United Dairy Farmers, our local C-store chain, who also has a no-gun policy that is causing me to go out of my way to more ccw friendly chains.
