Agree with all the above, I carry to church with my pastors blessings and have all my career and into my 2 years of retirement...Starbux is over-priced and over rated but that being said, they only took this position cowering to the Demoncats demands.Ratfink2u,
I suspect that those of us who carry concealed will go right on carrying our handguns.
(NOT even most of my friends know that I essentially go NO place W/O my Sig-Sauer, though I've been retired since 2006.)
I recently saw a restaurant down in Wetumpka that just posted a 'NO GUNS' sign. I can only presume it was aimed at the new OC crowd who just HAD to strut around with their pieces showing.Not a problem, Ratfink. I don't drink their coffee anyway. Too expensive and in my opinion the quality is overrated.
And to be honest, this isn't a ban on guns per se...it's a request not to open carry there. In Alabama, under our new law, business owners do have that right.
But like I said....meh. I don't spend money there anyway.
Pete, I totally agree with you. I have never seen the big attraction in Open Carry. I understand that some think this is a matter of constitutional principal, but in our state, with CC permits so easy to get, I think it is more a matter of ego than anything else..."Look at me! I gotta gun!"I recently saw a restaurant down in Wetumpka that just posted a 'NO GUNS' sign. I can only presume it was aimed at the new OC crowd who just HAD to strut around with their pieces showing.
I also know of at least one church where CC is no big deal, but is considering posting signs, since OC on private citizens is not considered appropriate to a church environment.
Well, I just bought a new Colt M4(orgery) and put a new Eotech on it ....but I ain't takin' it to the local mall slung over my shoulder or elsewise!....I'm still waiting for some schmoe to walk into the mall with an AR slung over his shoulder just to "make a statement". :-?
Love the Keurig! But it hasn't cured me of having a Coffee at Cracker Barrel or other breakfast haunt.I'm not sure why you'd want to give up the tactical advantage of the BG -not knowing- you were armed.
And I hardly ever drink coffee out since I got a Keurig.
Businesses that post "NO GUNS" signs have every RIGHT to do so BUT they do NOT get my business, as leaving my handgun in the car is NOT smart.
Further such places are TARGETS OF OPPORTUNITY for armed lunatics & vicious predators.
(This is PERSONAL for me, as I lost a cousin, his wife and one of their daughters in The Daingerfield Church Massacre. I also lost several childhood chums to that CREEP, who told the sheriff of Morris County that he intended to KILL "them [email protected]#$%^& Christers" AND that he KNEW that NOBODY would have a gun in the church.)
SPOT ON SW!!! This is the reason I DO carry Concealed at my church. I agree that the OC folks have gone overboard but it is still my right to spend my $ somewhere else if they ban guns...
