    I entered the pawn shop located in West Valley City Utah to look at their inventory.
    As I was shopping one of the men behind the counter noticed my firearm.

    He told me it was company policy for customers to have a concealed or open carried firearm in their store.
    I complied with their store policy and left the store.

    I called the Manager/Owner who stated that firearm carried by customers are not allowed in the store.
    The manager was very abrupt when talking about firearms.

    Seems like they don't trust the customer therfore does not deserve my money.
    As it stands I will not be a customer until the policy changes. I will shop at other pawnshops who support the RTKBA.

    So just a update to this situation:

    The pawn shop felt that by me posting about them and calling to inform them I would not be giving them my business both store's a total of four calls. They notified my employer that I was harassing them they found out were worked based on my email. I was called into my LT's office to explain my side of the story.

    They took it a step further and called South Salt Lake City Police department to notify them that I was harassing them. Their were no laws broken and no charges filled. The police were used by the pawn shop to intimidate me into stop telling people of my experience.

    The pawn shop is upset that their policy came back to bite them. The tactics used by this pawn shop were just dirty politics. Just think if you were a customer and had a problem.

    The police department stated by posting about them I was endangering their business and subject to criminal charges. I felt the officer was trying to use her powers to threaten and co hearse me to stop.

    Thanks

    In that case, delete your posts, and you won't be "harassing" them. I'll just post up your experiences instead. I wouldn't be violating any law and I'm a little far out of reach for them.

    Why? No criminal charges can be filed for a citizen truthfully reporting an experience with a store.

    There are no laws against "endangering" their business, and nothing I have seen could be considered harassment, and far from slander.

    The officer should have said it was a civil matter and left it alone IMO.

    Exactly. It's only slander if it's not true, and it's certainly not harassment.

    That's totally unfair and cowardly to boot on the pawn shop's part.

    Welcome to the real world of people who don't like what you may write, even if it's true! But that's what people who have some power do. And if they can track you down with information thaty have, they will use that information against you.

    They spit on the concept of free speech. West Side Pawn, you guys are cowards.

    And bullies.
