Awesome job thanks
3 of the Valero stores in Ponca are owned by the same guy, and when OC became law he posted his stores with signs "No weapons allowed except for police." I talked with the gal working the register that first day and she knew nothing about it. I explained to her that the signs won't stop folks with bad intentions, they will only keep the good guys from spending money there...talk about a deer-in-the-headlights look!
Fast forward 6 weeks and the signs have mysteriously disappeared so I go in for a little fact-finding mission. Apparently the store owner decided that it would be better to have legal guns welcome in his POB in case an illegal gun wandered in and started trouble. I told the (different) gal at the counter that I was glad to hear it and tucked in my shirt so my CZ82 could get some air. She smiled and said she was glad to see folks carrying in the store...made her feel safer as she had been robbed before.
Another win for the sane guys!!
good to hear, ok people see what just a couple minutes of your time explaining things may get you, i'v found that a lot of the owners/managers dont even know that you have to be licensed to carry, my sisters boss at family dollar thought anyone as of nov 1st could openly carry a gun...if these people are willing to listen we can get the correct info across to them and in return maybe a win for us and of course the store ,employees and general public, carry on guys..keep fighting
For some reason the link to this was reported by Facebook users???! Do we have a troll in the group?!
I wouldn't use FB for any firearm related discussion. I deleted my account months ago. I'd rather network on gun forums or in person over a meal.
From what i understand is that Facebook is going after any pro gun pages.
You say that as though there were something wrong with it.Originally Posted by metz
Look at the states which don't interfere with the right to carry, look at the states which don't interfere with the right to carry openly, & compare their rates of problems with problems from states which require a license to OC.

BTW, I see you're all pretty new to OCDO.
The new Valeros at McArthur and Memorial is still posted. Stupid gas pump wouldn't give me a receipt and I had to go in to get it. I didn't notice the sign till I opened the door to leave. Good thing I wasn't carrying.
Websterz - Good Job!
We should all be outspoken advocates for legal carry, be it concealed or open (preferably open)
Thanks for the effort, looks like your talk with the employee got the ball rolling on this one!
