Sounds like a move by the upper management. I'll bet the manager who got stabbed would rather have that sign down. But then again, maybe it is a good idea because the gun totin' zealots might pop out of the woodwork.

I don't go to businesses that have no gun signs. I usually carry a gun.

I do go to the post office, but I can secure my gun in a locked compartment in my car. Few violent crimes in the Post Office, lots of violent crimes in stores and gas stations, and restaurants.

Businesses are free to make any rules regarding guns they wish. There are always other options for me.

I guess I'm a gun totin' zealot, but if I'm ever shot at again I want to be able to shoot back.

No you're a normal adult human who is making normal adult human decisions such as, "Oh shiat this store doesn't want me to carry inside, I guess I'll find somewhere else to spend my money."  Maybe a little paranoid but no more so than a guy in the suburbs putting motion sensor lights on all four corners of his house.

I of course called Keith's Superstore in Lumberton, MS to find out what their logic was. Long story short, they were quite rude, and refused to answer any questions pertaining to this incident. Perhaps I should've asked why they didn't post a "No Knives" sign!

Yes, I'm sure he asked his questions in a non-rude manner.  That whole article is dripping with assholeishness.

Another responsible gun owner.

Hopefully the irresponsible gun owner is banned from those stores in the future.
 
2014-06-26 07:40:11 AM  
Good for him! Props to the guy. Too bad people with CCW are far more likely to get killed or kill an innocent than stop an actual bad guy.

This. The businesses are free to decide whether or not to allow guns, and you're free to decide whether or not your (presumably concealed) carry piece is worth the hassle of finding a competing business to do what you need done.

The people who AREN'T reasonable are the open carry farkwits who lose their mind and act like spoiled children when a business tells them not to carry.

Just don't be a farkwit. It's really not hard to understand.

Do armed robbers even no how to read? Most of them probably can't read so I think these signs should be illustrated. Dude with stocking over face pointing a gun with a big "x" on it. I think they'll get the picture.

They probably had a life insurance policy on the guy getting stabbed and were pissed on missing out on the million dollar + policy.
 
2014-06-26 07:43:13 AM  
It's concealed. How would they know? And even if they did find out, other than kick you out what can they do? Could you be arrested? I mean, it's a store policy not a law.

Just a little clarification.  You can insert the 'person with documented mental problems' into almost all the mass shootings, but guns are the problem not neglecting mentally ill people.

I'm a little amused by the mention of a post office since the whole "shoot 'em all up" thing was originally called "going postal".
 
2014-06-26 07:49:57 AM  
They should ban the good guy with the gun from the stores permanently. For good measure.

Double this. I'll go elsewhere or leave it behind (secured, obviously) if whatever private property I plan on entering bans firearms.

I could be a dick and do it anyway, with the worst outcome (if I was dumb enough to practice open carry to begin with) being asked to leave and a $25 fine from my county. But I'm not THAT much of a dick for no good reason.

This is an excellent way to keep guns out of one's store.  Just look at how well the "Drug Fee Zone" signs at schools have worked.  Actually, they should start putting signs at the entrances of high rise building saying:  "No jumping from roof top".  I bet that would get rid of a lot of bad DNA.

So I guess logically then being a right wing militia goon qualifies as a documented mental problem?

Or is that why you said "almost"?

I was getting shot at in a 'secure' federal building in Washington DC a few months ago. The reason I frequent there is to get a paycheck.

This was also an act of an untreated mentally ill person.  If he were treated appropriately, he would still be alive, and so would several of my co-workers and friends. But of course, this is all just because guns are bad.

Banging on your window is not life threatening and is no reason to pull a gun.  Don't pull a gun unless you plan to USE it.  I recommend option C - be uncomfortable for a few seconds.

Most states with CCW laws also regulate where they can be carried. A common law is that if a business posts a "No Concealed Wepons" sign it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon there. It varies from state to state, of course. In North Carolina, such a sign must simply be posted at the entrance. In South Carolina the size, symbol, placement and exact wording are specified. If a South Carolina convenience store owner puts an index card sized sign with no symbol and the words "No Weeapons" written in sharpie on the door, I can ignore it because it doesn't meet the legal requirements. The same sign in North Carolina would make it illegal for me to carry there.

Of course, I would not carry into a business that didn't want me to because I'm not an asshole.

Ohmigawd, the Lumberton Chevron. That's where I fuel up whenever I go geocaching up in that area, which is often.

Telling folks in Lumberton not to carry guns is like handing out speeding tickets at Talladega.

Trust me, people around here don't see me as a "guns are bad" kind of person.  I'm just naturally curious about mentality of people who seem to be stuck in a state of hyper-vigilance to the point that it seems they seek out opportunities to defend themselves.  Not saying you're that type, but an awful lot of vocal "second-amentment rights advocates" seem to fit that mold.

Government with a huge arsenal of weapons kills civilians during a "surgical" strike.

Unintended casualties.
Human Shields.
Democracy.
Liberation.

They can call it anything they like.

How is the government any better than a criminal that kills indiscriminately for false ideals, manufactures evidence and shiats on not only it's own laws, but the Geneva Convention's? Who then shiats on the veterans that fought wars for the political gain of a small elite class of people and called it "Honor and Duty."

Yeah, I would call shooting 20 five years a random isolated incident in the context of a fighter jet that can kill hundreds in a minute and have some politico farking call it "unintended consequuence of war."  Which you call a "Random isolated incident. "

"Whoops sorry!"

Fair enough.  How about we agree to begin by restricting gun ownership for psychotics, sociopaths, and admitted tea partiers until they get the medical help they desperately need (which will of course be provided free of charge under the new single-payer universal health care scheme).

A blog entry by a gun nut - aping other gun nuts from a different website - about a story they don't cite and with enough basic grammar mistakes to give a first grade English teacher the shakes.
