    why dont we start having empty holster protests in these places that have taken our
    rights away.. a group of people with empty holsters walking thru costco would send a message..
    I have a gold membership card to get us in.....

    It's their property and they can very easily kick you out for staging a "protest" on their property. Unless of course you are going about your business buying stuff with an empty holster on, but then I have to ask how effective of a protest is it giving money to someone who doesn't respect your rights?

    I walked around with an empty holster in costco yesterday.
    didnt hear anything about it. I didnt buy anything, just broused.
    If they want to kick me out for wearing a piece of plastic that is definately their right.
    JUST to make a note... nowhere did i see a sign saying it was a holster free zone..

    I don't think they'd kick you out for a holster. By the title "empty holster protest" I got the idea that you would be attempting to draw attention to yourself and be vocal about your displeasure with their policy, all while not actually buying anything. Essentially staging a protest on their private property.

    Now it sounds like you're going a little more low key. Still, I prefer the approach of writing letters and staying out of a place where I must go unarmed. If you're willing to be unarmed and protest, it does little to prove the point that you need a firearm for self-defense. My protection is more important than trying to change the policies of a company I can easily avoid.
