    List of OC friendly businesses ?

    The more I read here it seems the more questions keep popping in my head about the new open carry law here. Would it be possible to start a list of OC friendly businesses ? it would seem two fold to me, one being a easy way for a person to find out who welcomes and who doesn't at all. Two, it might save a lot of businesses from being questioned to death about it and possibly causing ill feelings towards us. Thanks.

    Kum and Go

    Please add Kum & Go to the list of friendly to gun owner stores.

    “We do not prohibit customers with a valid permit from carrying in accordance with their rights and limitations under applicable law. That said, we do not allow on-duty associates to carry weapons even if they have a permit.”

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    That is really good to know, i don't understand why they will not let employees carry, or at least cc.

    Listing OC-friendly locations

    Some folks believe that publicly listing businesses who are friendly to anything 2-A related (be it concealed carry or open carry) gives the anti's an instant target, to go by the place and either feed them a crock about "the law" requiring them to post (it's been done), or just scaring the bejesus out of them until they do post.

    Some folks suggest, instead, of listing only the 2-A UNfriendly locations. That way, legal carriers can simply take their money where the business owner respects their rights, but doesn't give the anti's a target.

    It's one train of thought....

    Do you think the friendly ones will see the business they have then if persuaded to post see the loss in business then decide to take the posting down. Just a thought that way we know who is friend and don't have to second guess.

    I am not for letting the anti's get a toe hold on anything but, I tend to think if they walk into a business that allows OC that they will most likely turn and run knowing that they have allready been defeated there and probally won't change the owner's mind. I am with Gary S. here in that I for one do not want to second guess about a business's 2A posture. Not trying to straddle the fence here but maybee a list of both might be in order.

    Why would you question a business? If they have a sign, go somewhere else. If there is no sign, come on in. If you are asked to leave, just leave. Don't act upset that there is no sign, or you will make one appear. This causes a business that was good to go with concealed now off limits.

    Because if a customer uses a firearm in their store, they are not specifically liable. If their employees do this, they are very liable if something goes wrong.

    I have seen a sign that said the carry of firearms is strongly supported. Please keep firearms legally holstered at all times unless the need arise for defense, in which case marksmen ship is highly appreciated. I think we need to see more of those posts go up. Just my opinion.

    Yeah i can understand that i just think if i was a clerk at a gas station, like i was about 9 years ago in Florida, i would want to be carrying a firearm on me, like i did then but with permission from the store. It had to be cc and they knew it was for my protection and nothing more, if a bad guy wanted the money from the register it was his but if my life was threatened "surprise"

    Company policy would not prevent me from concealing in that situation.

    I tried that one. Several places on the map as negative, one neutral, no positives. Not enough information in the Tulsa area yet. And nothing on the mentioned location.

    Anyone can add reviews for businesses to this site. It's all community driven so if you see a place with a sign up, post it as a negative. Otherwise you can either leave it off the list or post it as a positive.

    I personally am just going to post up the neg, the only real reason is like you said Bryan if there is no sign come on in and not to question the owners about it, that and the map for friend or foe would get plugged up quick if I went to every business and then uploaded it good, bad, or neutral on the website. It can be done, however if I find a sign or talk to owners that do proudly support it then I will upload it, but if its just a "go about your business" kind of store, I will leave it off the map.

    What about Walmart and Homeland stores?

    Not sure about Homeland, but Walmart is Neutral. Their corporate policy is to comply with state law. Local managers do not have the authority to post signs, as they are not the owners. This is my understanding from reading a lot of posts from different states.

    My local Homeland doesn't have any signs posted, so I may have to try it and find out.

    After more reading it appears:

    QuikTrip is ok with OC.
    Arby's has removed their signs.
    Reasors will be putting up signs.
    BOK doesn't really have a problem with OC.
