    Need help here in Oklahoma

    With our brand new OC law, there are a flurry of no guns signs going up in Oklahoma. We are trying to work on these, and our local members have access to this and are giving it to some businesses.

    However, I know that some of these national chains are corporate entities that y'all have dealt with in other states. I'm hoping that someone has copies of corporate policies, so that we don't have to do the same work that others have already done. Here's a short list of some we'd like to get some help with. In addition to corporate policies, we could use any corporate contacts that you may have.

    Golden Corral (one store in Norman OK)
    Walgreens (so far no reports of signs)
    CVS
    Applebees
    Texas Roadhouse
    McDonalds
    O'reilly Auto Parts
    Auto Zone

    Golden Corral (one store in Norman OK) - one local outlet loves to see us coming in OCing. The other one did not, but recently waas reported as not throwing someone out. Could be that the manager of the first place is supposed to have been promoted to area/regional manager.
    Walgreens (so far no reports of signs) - OC sometimes several times a day. No problems except they look at me funny when I try to buy all the chocolate-covered cashews they have.
    CVS - no problems with 3 locally
    Applebees - known unfriendly
    Texas Roadhouse - no experience personally but I think others have OC'd without problems.
    McDonalds - absolutely no problems.
    O'reilly Auto Parts - one time in there - no problems
    Auto Zone - they see me coming and start latying stuff on the counter. No problems.
    All answers valid for Richmond, Va only.

    stay safe.

    My buddy was the DSM for O'reileys, they follow state law. There was no change when they bought out Shucks, (CSK).

    Bill Starks in Washington would be a good person to contact he has copies of many corporations, corporate policy.

    http://www.friendorfoe.us/ is a very good way to keep up with who has negativity and who is positive. I am trying to locate the Corp letters we have collected.

    While I appreciate the responses, I'm afraid that you didn't understand the request in the original post. I'm not looking for feedback on who is nice and who isn't, I'm looking for specific documentation of corporate policies.

    Well most McDonalds are franchise, so they will not be the same policy from one franchise to the next.
