    I'm not sure about this but I doubt that a sign saying that guests are subject to search actually gives anybody the right to search you.

    I would not consent to a search and would leave first.

    Rocky mountain raceway has the same type sign. I got pulled out of line there once, spread eagled against a wall and searched during the midnight drags. I guess I looked like a gang-banger that day or something. I know I could have refused, but I was curious as to the outcome.

    The "security" guy that patted me down was wearing ski gloves(to avoid drug needles he said). Know what? He flat out patted my concealed sp101 hard,TWICE!! Told me I wasgood to go, and have a nice night....

    Iwonder who else got what else in there that night?

    Nice. I got a patdown at the NIN concert last night, and almost laughed at the inadequacy. A SOB holster, an ankle holster, a shoulder holster (if you'd twisted it back a little bit) would have all definitely made it through, and I am betting a standard IWB would have as well, as light as the patdown was. The only visual check was in the front of my waistband. Hell, my knife made it through in my hand! We were told to empty our pockets, so the knife I keep cliped to my belt was in my hand with my cell phone and wallet! Great security you have there, Red Rocks.

    It should make you feel safe. After all, you still have your sidearm.

    I hope they don't stick with the anti gun stance. I really like that place.

    Zachary,



    Thanks for your feedback. You obviously know Matt who has expressed the same concern recently. Your statement is not correct when you state that I am not pro gun. I do have a conceal carry permit and am also a member of the NRA. I would like to get more details regarding your being “turned away” from our facility due to our no weapons policy. I am not aware that we have turned anyone away. I think you are both getting a little carried away with a non issue. We have not been kicking anyone out of our facility for legally carrying a concealed handgun. Other than law enforcement, I am not aware of anyone open carrying in our facility. This would be of some concern due to the nature of our business. I’m sure that if you or Matt were to be carrying your handguns concealed at our facility no one will ever say a word to you about it. Let me know if you have any other questions.



    Respectfully,



    Michael Brooks

    General Manager

    If they do, just conceal. If they ask to search, refuse. If they make an issue out of it, then take your business elsewhere. Seems pretty simple to me.
    Why would you(anyone) recommend breaking the rules of an establishment? If they don't want you there, why give them your money?
    So a company has an anti gun policy, but chooses not to enforce it. It's still anti gun!

    Im not recommending anything for anyone. Im giving my personal feelings. Im saying if they have an issue with OC, then CC.If they dont want CC, dont go there. Its REALLY not that big of a deal. But its a moot point now, right?
    A company that has an anti gun policy is still anti gun - just because one of the managers chooses not to enforce or push the issue doesn't make the establishment any less anti gun.

    Did you read his letter? Where does it say hes anti gun? If he is indeed an NRA member and a CCW holder and is really against guns he has got to have a severe moral tug-o-war going on inside of him. His letter says we are welcome. Hes not "one of the managers" hes the GENERAL manager, which has a little more say, no?Why are you beating a dead horse? If you want to disagree with methats fine, but back it up with fact, not delusion please.
    Oh sorry general manager. He still chooses not to enforce a policy that says no guns.
    Maybe he wrote the policy, maybe the owner did, maybe another manager did.
    The point is, he refuses or doesn't have the power to remove the sign.
    Your right, nuff said I'll take my business elsewhere.

    I agree any bussiness has the right to do and post what they want I agree I am stating I will not go to a bussiness that prohibits firearms It is my choice to go other places it is also my right to send a email to the owner and let him know how I feel that is how changes are made.

    If the thought police can not understand this Idea and what the fourm is about maybe it is time to find another site for posting that may better accomadate your views. Until then I welcome your thought provoking thoughts about why you don't like open carry.
