    Peninsula Town Center stickers

    I rarely go there anymore but I was invited to go along with some friends last nigh to dinner and a movie and it seems that all of the businesses there have "no firearms" stickers on the doors. This may have been discussed already but it was news to me. I'll definitely be more wary of taking my money to any of those businesses anymore.

    Not that it will guarantee any change of mind, but it does help the cause if you let the store know why you are choosing not to patronize them any longer.

    Google will probably get you the corporate HQ address info. A short letter to the head person.

    (A personal note: reminding the company that their policy hurts the law-abiding but does nothing to stop criminals - except to let them know there will be no opposition to their criminal behavior.)

    stay safe.

    I haven't been there in a week or so but my daughters drag me there often and I OC into Holister, Deliahs, Pink, Bath & Bodyworks, Justice, Claires, Abuelos, Chipotle, Five Guys, Macy's, JC Penney, Barnes & Nobles, and a few other stores that we don't frequent but we went into.

    So I prefer going to PTC rather than Patrick Henry Mall since I can OC everywhere. The only place I noticed a sticker was at one of the new restaurant/bar (which I never plan to go to anyway).

    People here had already confronted the management of PTC such that they understand that we are allowed to OC outside everywhere but it is up to the individual stores/restaurants to set their own policy. I would be surprised if all of them suddenly put up no-gun stickers. Can you name some of the businesses that you saw the stickers at?

    It looked to me like pretty much everyone was sporting these. Cinebistro, Dahlias, Monsoon, etc. I don't think passed by a door that didn't have one on it. Some also had the "no knives" sticker as well. I can only assume it was something pushed by the development rather than the individual businesses.

    Sadly, Hardchrome is correct!!!

    I went to Barnes & Noble today in PTC so I decided to walk around a bit to see if what Hardchrome was saying was true. Unfortunately I didn't have to go far to start seeing no-gun stickers on stores. I drove down one street and saw a few from the car and parked and walked down the main street my daughters shop on and took some pictures. These stickers weren't there a few weeks ago so there must be some coordination for all these stores to all of a sudded decide to put up the stickers. I don't know how to go about investigating that assumption other than to talk to store managers. If anyone has a good idea lets hear it.

    My battery on my camera was running out so I only took the below pictures but I may go back and investigate more. We might write to these stores corporate entities to see why they are putting up anti-gun stickers.

    The only good news is Chipotle had no such sticker. :-) Macy's, JC Penney, Pink also were good without stickers.

    Peninsula Town Center is a LOCAL Authority. They are preempted. This means that open carry in their two parks is perfectly legal. I open carry there often. They have mostly rent a cops. They also have some off duty Hampton Police. Hampton does not have a stop and identify law.

    You are correct and that was cleared up a year or two ago. The problem is that the individual tenants can decide on their own to ban guns or not. For the last couple years I have been OC-ing in all the stores we shopped in and never been asked to leave or any other negative comment. It seems that recently some effort has been underway to ban guns. It would be interesting to hear if PTC management was lobbying for the ban. Should a pre-empted entity be able to lobby against rights? Say if Hampton notified all businesses that they recommend banning guns from their store do we have any recourse?
