Hello, I am Administrator to Open Carry Advocates, a page on facebook. I write letters on behalf of my members concerning treatment by LEO and corporations. Right now I'm working on Huntington Bank, I can't seem to find out what their corporate policy is concerning concealed or open carry. Since this State has branches, I thought I'd ask around to find out if anyone knows of one posted 'no guns' or not. Thanks, jeff
Stopped by the main branch in downtown Morgantown and no signs prohibiting carry were posted.
Initially, one of our members contacted a district manager in loss prevention, in Toledo. I then contacted customer service in the corporate office. This jewel didn't have a clue and had to ask another associate who told her 'no guns whatsoever'. Since we got two different answers I wrote the Senior Vice President in charge of Human Resources by snail mail, due to a lack of cooperation getting a e mail address. I haven't heard back from him, but a day after I called customer service I received this:
Huntington respects the rights of Ohio’s citizens to carry registered, concealed weapons where allowed by State Law. As a whole, we have maintained our dedication to our customers and the citizens of Ohio by choosing to not ban firearms (and posting “do not carry” stickers on our doors) from our locations. However, there are specific locations that due to the security features in place require us to not allow firearms in those locations as such they do have stickers advising our customers that weapons are not permitted on the premises.
I understand the branches that are posted have 'man trap' doors. Apparently they won't let someone in if they are carrying a lot of metal and need to be let in manually.
Thank you for your response.
It would've been cheaper to just post some Pro Guns signs around the outside of the building. No robber with a note would dare to go inside.
