Way to go guys!! That was awesome.
What I don't understand is why they don't say "No illegal guns allowed." That way the legal carriers can still carry.
I just sent Holly a thank you too!
Word of the "No Guns" sign posting and subsequent removal has made it's way to Nevada. I and my family will go out of our way to be sure and visit Lenny's on my next visit to Memphis you can be sure! It is very refreshing to see a business that sincerely cares about their customer base."
UPDATE: Just received a very nice reply!

That is awesome! Word of mouth, and the internet. Businesses best friend or worst enemy. As more catch on in the future maybe they'll think twice before even thinking about consumer prejudice and segregation. In a few years, disallowing permit holders may become illegal just like biases on race, creed, color, gender or religion, and rightfully so. Breaking down the barriers. A commendation for those who made contact and made a difference. I would have, but just now saw the e-mail posting. One step at a time and before you know it, none of us will have to worry or 'look' where we go, or alter our normal routines and go out of our way because we're unaccepted for our values and our rights.
I'll check the Lenny's here in Oxford. I don't remember a sign.
I sent Holly a thank you.
Also got a reply from Holly...sign will be removed !!
Hit 'em in the wallet...and they cave in !!
Sending a "thank you" to Holly now...
Good job guys !!!!

Great results!!!! Thank you sent.
Ok, I see that some of you have gotten an email from Holly saying that the store has agreed to remove the sign. I have not gotten such an email but I will check tomorrow at lunch time and see if the sign is gone and I will let you all know.
For my update, I got a phone call on my cell from the owner of the store in question on my way to work not more than 10 minutes after I posted my initial update this morning. She was not the person I thought and referred to in my post this morning. She is a rather pleasant sounding lady who was in between flights at the airport in Miami as she was heading out of the country this morning. She told me that she wanted to make sure that she had gotten my email forwarded to her and that she completely understood where I was coming from on the issue and that she really had no strong feelings one way or the other. She told me that she had been told by a friend that she should put up a sign. She further told me that she would contact me again when she was back in the country the first part of next week and we would discuss it further. All in all not a bad call and she sounded very reasonable.
But, it sounds now like the situation may have changed during the day while I was off line and at work. Again, I will let everyone know if the sign is gone when I walk over and check tomorrow.
Thanks for all the help guys! We CAN get this kind of crap changed when we act in a unified way! A Big pat on the back to everyone!
