Since I didn't hear from anyone and Jodie was back today, I stopped into Best Buy. After removing my pistol and leaving it in the car, of course.
Jodie was in a meeting, but the other manager came up to me. I said "Hi, I'm hoping to speak with Jodie," and he said "Is this about the forearms policy?"
He said they're still looking into it, but they were under the impression that it was Corporate Policy that no firearms are allowed in stores. Which is BS because if you read my post, one of the first things Jodie said was "I know, we're not posted." and "Oh, it's not policy."
I reminded him of that exchange, and he sheepishly admitted that yes, they got the email from Corporate, and they will not be posting the store. So apparently, we ARE welcome to shop at Best Buy, OPEN CARRYING, and will not be asked to leave.
And then he said "as long as you don't like, draw down on anyone, ok?"
Ok. Check. If they get robbed, I'm totally going to mind my own business and wait for someone else to call the cops. And then wait for the cops and be a good witness. Got it. Thanks Best Buy.
