    "No Guns = No Business": Business Cards for Texans

    I put together this simple No Guns = No Business biz card. I'm going to print up a bunch with glossy coating and if anybody in TX wants a handful, just PM me your name/address to ship to and I'll send you free of charge in a padded envelope.

    I'm also including original artwork in case anyone wants to get a large batch printed on their own.

    I wanted to keep it super simple, and applicable to both OC and CC, and not just for TX. I could've written chapter and verse on the back but sometimes short and sweet and to-the-point works better.

    Also wanted to thank Matt for giving me a starting point with this since I was having trouble finding the original NG=NB card posts here.

    I like it. Might need a spanish language version, or at least the slogan.

    Beautiful work. These business need to feel our thoughts. So far there has been an aggressive MDA campaign to get business to put both signs up.

    Exactly! The crazy thing is, I believe half the businesses agreeing to it don't even understand the signs or what they're for.

    Nice!
    Maybe we should form a chapter of Gun Owners Demand Action or Open Carriers Demand Action. I mean there are probably more moms killing people than Open Carriers.
    And why is it that people think we are going to use a gun to settle a disagreement?

    Because they're projecting.

    I strongly believe that most anti-gun people feel the way they do because they feel that they cannot be trusted with a gun. Perhaps they have anger management issues, bad temper, etc. So because they feel that they cannot be trusted with a gun, nobody else can be either.

    So Papouli's Greek restaurants in S.A. have posted 30.07. This is the letter I'm sending them along with one of the cards.

    I've already mailed out the first batches of these cards to TX members that requested them. So I wanted to reiterate: if any OCDO members in Texas want some, just PM me and I'll send some free of charge and on my own dime. Also feel free to use a variation of my letter as you see fit.

    Outstanding letter!!
    Will be interesting to see if you get a response. As you indicated, too bad they feel that they can't just ask an INDIVIDUAL to please place their weapon in their vehicle if another customer feels uncomfortable rather than "mass punishment".

    You are very welcome buddy! Just let me know when you need more. Would love to meet you too--though I maybe go DFW way once every 2 years unfortunately. I just posted on the experiences thread about the possibility of setting up a meet somewhere between the big 4. Meantime, I know nonameisgood is in your area and was asking if anyone wanted to meet up.

    I'm fully expecting to not get a response, but if I do get one, I would suspect it wouldn't change anything initially. Only a concerted effort from numerous gun owners/carriers will make an impact which is why I'm willing to fund these NG=NB cards out of my own pocket so others can join in (BTW I'll give you a bunch next time I see you hehe).
    I had originally thought about going in and handing them one but then I thought a letter to the C.E.O. with card included would be a better choice. That way, I can get my points across [before getting thrown out or argued with] and those points are made directly to the top of the food chain.

    So now, I keep a small bunch on me just in case I need one while out OC'ing. And I will target specific ones by writing C.E.O's and upper management types.

    My only regret with that letter yesterday is that I had mailed it off before coming across that news article about the convenience store near Houston that posted 30.06/30.07 then got robbed (I posted a thread about it this morning). In future, I will include a print out of that article with any letters I send out to solidify the point made in the last paragraph.

    Today at Taco Cabana (I was CCing since I was working):
    The problem is that concealing makes far more sense that leaving a weapon vulnerable to theft.

    I've boycotted Taco Cabana for years but more due to their food than anything else. Not really sure what they're trying to achieve with this sign rather than a 30.07 other than they clearly still don't want OC'ers in there but somehow still want/expect their business. I personally don't think that works. If I'm not 100% welcome, I'll spend my money with their competitors.

    They had 30.06's up for a few months a few years ago. They weren't quite up to spec and came down pretty quickly. I expect the same.

    You are very welcome buddy! Just lemme know if you need more. Just heard this morning that Denny's has posted 30.07--looks like I'll be sending them a card with one of my letters.

    The Minyard's in Irving has some gun busters signs up now. I guess I will have to tell them their signs are illegal and give them a card.

    If you tell them anything I would say "the [gunbuster] sign is not legally binding." The [gunbuster] sign is not "illegal" as in there is no law against them putting up the sign.

    That's what I meant. I was going to tell them it has no weight in law. On thinking about it all it really boils down to is that when I shop there, which is not often, I will just cover up. The only reason that I even go there is that they have a brand of salt-free potato chips that I like.

    I figured that's what you meant, sorry to be pedantic

    The only reason I said anything is because I think that there have been people going around to businesses implying that they are legally required to post 30.07/30.06 signs, so I think we just need to be careful to not give any businesses the impression that they may be doing something illegal by not having the proper signs, to help avoid confusion in case they are lied to by the antis.

    No worries, like I said I will just cover up when I have to go there and let them live in there little fantasy world until some punk comes along and shows them what the real world is all about.
