i saw this on another forum; this particular store is local to me, so i decided to go and take a look for myself. this is what i saw:
seriously? dangerous ordnance? guess i better leave the C4 in the glovebox.
the sign irritates me. not because i can't go in; i have no plans on getting married, so diamonds don't fit into any of my long term plans. plus, i don't like the idea of funding slave labor in other countries.
no, what irritates me is the wording. the store itself is located in a strip mall; the parking lot is shared by a dozen other stores. pretty nervy, if you ask me, to forbid the possession of C4, RPGs, slingshots, and toaster ovens, while i'm shopping at Bed, Bath and Beyond next door.
for my ladyfriend, mind you.
i contacted their corporate office; they informed me this was company policy, for the safety of their customers and employees.
well, that makes it alright, i guess.
I don't see a photo...
They actually had a blue frowney face with question marks over it??? Sheesh, I won't do business there either. How dare they infringe on the on line forum rights.
If you post a link I'll send them my "No Business" form letter.
The one pn the other forum was about Jared. I think,they are owned by the same company.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
I don't buy jewelry (especially diamonds) from chain stores - it's usually cheap, low quality, and over-priced.
Wasn't there a thread posted yesterday about the same thing and today I can't seem to find it, did it disappear or is this old age catching up to me again this morning in more ways then one.

I think that other thread was for Jarred's Jewerly Store,, But they won't get my money either.
You guys have to stop taking this as a corporate slam against CHP holders. These policies are simply legal butt covering. They don't really care if you are unarmed in their store when it's robbed by an armed person.
They can legally cover themselves by claiming the armed robber violated their "no guns" policy. Additionally, they are also covered if some doofus CHP holder exposes his ccw and is jacked up and injured by security.
This issue has NOTHING to do with your rights, and everything to do with legally protecting them from lawsuits.
Mac, you have a great point. It's a legal liability thing. However, that still misses the point that their insurance doesn't demand it. Do they have these posted in places where CC is infrequent? I doubt they are up in CA or MA, so that means that they are likely selectively putting them up in places where lawful citizens carry. And that, frankly, is not okay.

I agree with you, Reverend. However, if someone from MA walks in armed, they are either a LEO or illegally carrying. Again, they are "protected".
It's the same reason my company doesn't allow me to carry. They aren't stupid enough to assume the policy will prevent some loon from shooting up the office. They are just making sure they can't be sued for it
Until we get some legal reform, this will continue to be the case. If we keep voting in these politicians, we'll keep getting these results.
I agree we also need to continue to "vote with our wallets".
I acknowledge that businesses can legally exclude me. I will simply vote with my feet. Jewels in particular are of no importance to me; I haven't had a reason to be in a jewelry store for decades anyway.
All I saw was a blue frowny face emoticon, too. What did the sign say at Kay?
