    Don't forget the opposition

    Home Depot and Lowe's both allow open and concealed carry in their stores. They also allow non-service pets into the stores. They are doing a lot better than some other box stores.
    There are four boxes to use in effecting change. The soapbox, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box. Please use them in that order.

    A plot to kill animals? Deviously clever...

    I noticed a yellow sign on each side of the entrance doors at Lowes here in meridian, Idaho that states pets are no longer allowed in the building. The exception, is of course, that service dogs are permitted. My first thought when approaching the entrance, was it would prohibit firearms, but I was relieved to find out that it had nothing to do with that. I am glad Mothers Demand Attention have not persueded HD or Lowes to fold on policy and I am sure they reached out to them even though it has not been reported as far as I know.

    I have not verified but our son told us Home Depot no longer honors a VA ID card (plastic Gov issued with photo) for the 10% discount. You are required to complete some form they keep on record. I'd almost bet that the VA ID card is needed to complete the form and used for verification. Anyone heard or experienced this?

    I'll stick with Lowe's for the time being.

    ...I carried my DD214 for a long time...no problem...then the cashiers told me to go get "Veteran" put on my TX driver's license...it would be accepted and no more paper shuffling...I took my DD214 to the Driver's License office and got "Veteran" put on my license...that worked for about a month...then the cashier showed me a memo they'd gotten that week from corporate requiring the DD214 and refusing the "Veteran" designation on the license...


    ...I went to Staples with my old, beat-up, barely legible DD214 and came out with 2 3 1/2x 2 3/4 laminated copies of my DD214 that fit my wallet and were sharper and easier to read and they accept them w/o comment...cost me almost $9 at Staples but well worth the discount...I much prefer shopping at Home Depot to shopping at Lowes...at Lowes, on larger orders, I've had to wait 15-20 minutes for a Supv. to show up at the register and card-swipe their authorization for the discount...
    ...no matter the trouble...it's still a real nice gesture on their part...and much appreciated!!!

    Until Next Time

    Couple of months out of date. Let's hope they hold another, nationwide.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    I use both Lowes and HD and I use my retired "grey" card. Always works. Nothing in Washington about "keeping it on file".

    This is Truth!
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    Virginia offers a Veteran's ID card for a modest fee, using the DMV database information. It has the same photo as the driver's license and shows the date of issue, date of discharge and branch of service. I use it every time I go to Home Depot or Lowes and I have never been denied the 10% discount at either store.
