I'd love it if Gratia-Hupp ran for federal office. We need more like her in DC!sm said:Bumper - :biggrin:
Prospector - I agree with your addtional statement.
Chris is correct. On THR we had Applebees and some other folks swamped with letters, emails and phone calls from not only the folks local to the NO CCW, included from all around the country.
Advising the Corporations that if that is they way they treated folks in Shall Issue Areas, then in support of , they would stop buying and advising why in other parts of the country.
IIRC Kroger was another. There was also another grocery chain, that posted this NO CCW and had something like 4 Armed robberies in like 3 locations in one week . Couldn't understand why - the sign "said" No guns :tongue:
Granted some areas have more restrictive Statues than others. We All need to support each other no matter where - other states and such in the Legislative efforts, and to educate the Corporations as to why.
Seems to me Some Corporations only "heard" from the Anti's and read only the "mi-information". When educated with the truth , Corporations can at least make a more informed decision.
The Story of Susan Gratia Hupp is always a great story to relate to Corporations.
She was the Dr., whom in Luby's in Kileen , TX had to leave her CCW in her vehicle due to state law. She lost both parents that day. She is now a District 54 Rep, and works hard for CCW and other 2A/ RKBA efforts.
That's true too, they literally are about to open a Best Buy and a Target and a couple of other stores very close to me. If CHLs aren't welcome at Best Buy I simply won't go in there because there's an alternative right next to it. Their loss.To Whom it May Concern:
It has come to my attention lately that Best Buy stores discriminate unfairly against certain members of the general public.
These people are often welcomed by other retail establishments but not Best Buy. These people are lawful citizens who have concealed handgun permits.
Anyone who possesses a concealed handgun permit has never committed a felony, has their fingerprints on file with both the local authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has had extensive background checks, and has passed mandatory training by the state.
Simultaneously, there are recorded incidents of retail stores such as Best Buy being targetted for robbery due to the presence of signs which state that persons with concealed handgun permits are not welcome. If there is less risk associated with robbing your stores than there is with your competitors, this makes me personally feel safer in your competition's stores.
You'll find many if not most people with concealed handgun permits are typically lawyers, doctors, business people, accountants, engineers, educators, and the like. These are people who either make use of the products you sell extensively and/or they are people with disposable income who like to buy fine eletronics for recreational purposes. If you do not get their business your competition will.
Would Best Buy not allow someone in their stores just because they have a permit to operate large commercial vehicles? Would Best Buy not allow someone in their store just because they have a permit to sell tobacco and/or alcohol?
It makes no sense for Best Buy to discriminate against a group of people simply because they possess a legal permit to do, own, carry, or operate something, especially when it means less in the way of sales.
There is a Best Buy opening approximately 3000 feet from me. A competing store is opening up not 150 feet away from your new location. I'd hate to think I couldn't shop at Best Buy while I was being welcomed at the other store.
Someone more creative will have to do that but I also had this one specifically for Texas if anyone wants it....armoredman said:Nice card, but could someone update it from an HR .32 revolver to something a little better? I would love to hand those out....
Help yourself, P95, they were snatched from somewhere a long time ago but can't remember where. I would like to have a good one to print out maybe 4 to a page and leave them at stores when I notice their sign. Boycotting doesn't help unless they know you are boycotting them.... :biggrin:P95Carry said:Randy - glad you posted that card image - I have meant to make up something on that line - and will try and make a new one very similar when time - if OK with you - probably a close copy but tweaked a bit.
