    Just what makes someone believe they have the right to dictate how someone who's got skin in the game opening a retail store operates said business?
    1. Here in TX, no-carry signs have to be in a specific format. If a building is properly posted, I won't carry there. Probably won't cross the threshold in any case.

    2. Most retail stores are corporate owned and policy is set by some faceless corporate bureaucrats a thousand miles distant. I have a constitutional amendment on my side that spells out my right. They're concerned with minimizing lawsuits. Again, if the store is properly posted, I simply take my money somewhere else. If they have a noncompliant sign, I'll feel free to enter with my snub in pocket.

    2. Why do you believe your right to carry trumps the store owners rights to deny access to those carrying a firearm? No! Their property, their rules. But I have the RIGHT to shop elsewhere as well.

    Just what makes someone believe they have the right to dictate how someone who's got skin in the game opening a retail store operates said business? I don't have a right to dictate to someone else. I have a right to choose.

    Thanks @jmf552 . You've made some interesting points in several posts I hadn't previously considered. I find your points quite persuasive, and I gives me new perspective on avoiding posted businesses. I may choose to avoid them on principle of not funding a business that is openly anti-gun, but I may choose to ignore the sign. TN signs have force of law, but they only kick in when a business owner asks a person carrying to leave. And then it is only misdemeanor trespass should one refuse. I of course would never allow it to reach that point once asked to leave.

    Many gun owners are willing to support posted businesses even when other options are available.
    There could be a posted restaurant "2A Sucks Pizza" and right across the street non-posted "Pistol Packing Pizza" - "concealed is concealed" would support the posted place.

    My principle is strong and definitely not lacking.

    One movie theater in town is not the same as a dozen restaurants and patronize a posted one "concealed is concealed" because they have good rolls. (whatever)
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    OK- I understand your thought process and do agree. For example, I have never given "Jared, the Galleria of Jewelery" any of my business due to their "in your face" no weapon signs at the entrance. Zales has no such signs (except maybe the old mall code of conduct) and Shane Company definitely doesn't.

    The only places I disarm are in a government building or hospitals and some doctors offices when posted assuming I have to go there . Other wise if ( no gun ) signage is legal with in the state and placed properly at a business I go else where .
