I am usually carrying where ever I go, and I was very surprised when I stopped at 'Priscillas' in Merrillville. Signs at the entrance of the store say "no weapons allowed on premises." For those of you who don't know... Priscilla's is basically a porn store.. lol. But still.... what's the big deal, why don't they want us to carry our guns in there??
I've been here a number of times ~3-4, I never noticed the sign, is it recent? Last time I was there was a few months back, OC'ed as usual, did not see any signage...
They probably have the same misinterpreted notion that all the other gun free zones do, crime will run rampant if people can bring their guns in, when we know it is just the opposite. That area of Merrillville borders Gary somewhat, especially at night the surrounding areas do have quite a bit of crime, vandalism and that sort of thing. Also, the business is in that little alley way kind of far from the main strip of malls adjacent to it, if I had to guess, thats what I think their reasoning is.
