Gun unfriendly.....
#1
Lets use this thread to let each other know what establishments are not gun friendly.

Many chains and franchises are gun unfriendly even in the states that are gun friendly. Seems to be their corporate policy.

Since allot of us move around or travel for work or leisure, it would be nice to know where you shouldn't be spending your money.

Right now, I'm down in Chesterfield county, VA. I meet my landlord once a month for lunch, dinner or coffee. When she suggested coffee at Starbucks, I didn't have an issue knowing they were 2A friendly, even though I do not like their coffees. Last month, she suggested TGI Fridays for dinner. I got there a couple of minutes before she did, and waited at the front door for her. When she got there I told her I WILL NOT go in there. I will not give my money to a place that has a no weapons policy in a state that is gun friendly. She fully understood, she rocks!

I'm fully aware that this link is geared for VA however, most of these are franchises with a blanket corporate no guns policy.

So, where are you NOT spending your money?

If so, they are not displayed prominently enough to come to my attention every time I have been there...

I have not noticed a no weapons policy on the conshohocken ikea, and I looked for signage.

At the one here in Pittsburgh, yes, it is small print on the bottom of a sliding door..., which is why I missed it when I went in.

They were nice about throwing me out, though. Rolleyes

Here is a copy of my encounter at the Robinson Ikea, from PAFOA;


This happened literally five minutes ago. And, I should have know, reading what I read now so it probably isnt a surprise to anyone else. But going in, I didn't realize they werent gun friendly. There is a sign, that I missed because it is small print on the sliding door which was opened when I went in.

Anyway, I needed a new desk so I made my way through the store and wrote up my purchase order. I was almost to the end when this husky girl runs up to me and says:

"Excuse me sir! I hate to do this to you, but we have a no firearm policy and I have to ask you to take it to your car or something."

Me: Oh, ok, do you have a sign posted?

Her: Yes, it is on the front door.

Me: Oh ok, I must have missed it since the door was open when I came in.

Her: No problem! You can just put it in your car and come back in.

Me, handing her my purhase order with over five hundred in items on it: No thanks, I will just leave. Can you show me the fastest way out?

Her: No problem, and again I am sorry. I know that your are legal, it is just company policy.

Me: Ok thanks for the info.


On the way out, I verified the sign as I described above.

Like I said, this probably isn't a surprise to most of you but I guess I just take for granted my carrying since I've never been asked to leave anywhere before.

To her credit, she was friendly and non confrontational. I know where I was "made" too. In the desk area, an older male clerk ask me if I needed help as I was leaned over looking at a desk. He came up to me strong side and my p30 was in his face. When I said no, he bugged out and I caught him staring at me from behind a pole. I though nothing of it at the time because peoples irrational fear is of no concern of mine. I'm betting he called the boss on me.

Oh well, I'm glad they caught me before I blew 500+ there. I would have been pissed to learn about them after the fact.

Ps sorry for spelling errors and what not, I'm on my phone in the lot.
