You know, there are a few bakeries around the country that are now being sued and put our of business for refusing to bake a cake for a same sex marriage. Seems that you can not discriminate no matter what your personal beliefs may be. Sort of makes you wonder if some law that is written regarding discrimination can make a business owner do something they don't want, or believe, they should do. Then it makes a lot more sense that the Second Amendment makes gun owners a protected class, and we are being discriminated against. If there are any lawyers that are a part of the group, would you be able to weigh in and tell me if my logic is off base?

I know that it would not go over well with the ruling political class to have to admit gun owners have as many rights as anyone else, but it would be an interesting argument.

I personally like their policy a lot, as I can disregard it when eating burritos as long as I make sure I'm concealed.
On the other hand, Los Cucos (my favorite Mex joint) just hosted a CHL class yesterday. Just one more reason to support them. Go Los Cucos!!

Not that complicatedů You worked hard for your money and right to CCW, take your money elsewhere and do not support the anti's! Simple!

When the bad man comes around their establishment with the mental issues and starts whacking people, the carnage will stop when the police show up and the nut job kills himself. Played over and over...

+1 There is one near me that I frequent from time to time. However, they haven't hosted any CHL classes that I'm aware of.

I agree the only thing to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. I have seen it here in Ohio like everone else in here I simply eat or shop elsewhere.

I carry concealed most of the time, and could really care less about these silly signs. No one tells me where I can and cannot go, armed or otherwise. My right to keep and bear arms does not end where someone else's right to free speech starts.

You can't carry into our sportsman's club bar/restaurant as Michigan law prohibits doing so in any place licensed to serve alcohol. While this is a major inconvenience at a club with a large portion of the membership involved in shooting sports and also having concealed carry permits, most of us would rather not risk having the bar closed due to violations.

On the other hand, the sign at the door to the indoor range prohibiting loaded guns in the ready-room, including concealed carry weapons, is just, um, "poorly thought out." You want me to take out and unload my weapon in the car, carry everything through the ready-room, and reload it once on the range??? Prohibiting loadING weapons in the ready-room makes sense from a safety perspective. Stopping someone from simply carrying an already loaded weapon through the room, less so. Nonsensical rules are less likely to be followed, and lead some people to hold other rules there in contempt as well.

Don't patronize the place, and tell all of your 2nd Amendment supporting friends about their policy. We can vote at the ballot box and with our wallets.

I believe here in PA. if the establishment posts a sign and you enter they have the right to ask you to leave and you must obey. If you do not it becomes trespassing and is anoffense and they can get the police. however just because they put up a sign they cannot arrest you if you come in with your firearm but they have a right to ask you to leave and you must comply. I know it is that way in the Casinos.

In Wisconsin, you can have your CCW on you as long as it is not posted otherwise, and you are not partaking of the barley pop... which makes me

This is the signs Texas has:

In Texas there are two different signs that restrict a concealed handgun license holder from carrying into a place of business. They are a 30.06 sign, and a 51% sign.

A 30.06 sign is a sign that a business owner can post to restrict a CHL holder from entering the business with a concealed handgun. The sign must contain the exact words required by Section 30.06 in both English and Spanish, be placed in an area visible to the public, and have 1" lettering or it will not be considered a legally-binding 30.06 sign. "Gunbuster" signs, or signs with a red slash through a gun, are not considered valid 30.06 postings.

A 51% sign is a sign that a business is required by law to post if 51% of their revenue is obtained through on-premises drinking, such as at a bar. Unfortunately this also has the consequence of not allowing CHL holders to enter the premises where the drinking is taking place while carrying their handgun.
Additional places are not required to post a sign to forbid CHL holders from entering the premises with their handgun as Texas law already forbids it, such as court houses and educational institutions.

If you get caught you may louse your license to carry in Texas. If the owner has the correct sign take your business somewhere else.

As it's been said, it's different in every state. In GA, they are allowed to do that, but the most they can ask you to do is leave the premises, and if you don't, they can have you arrested for misdemeanor criminal trespass.

Took my 8 year old grandson to Chuckee Cheese on Tuesday and was surprised to see a "No concealed carry or weapons allowed" sign. Had some verbiage about trespassing too.

Will not be spending anymore cash there.

With the exception of hospitals, I simply refuse to do business in places do not allow concealed carry where carry would otherwise be allowed. I vote with my wallet.
