I would like to start by saying hello to everyone, and being my first post I am writing this with respect to the people that contribute to this website.I am not flaming or attacking anyone.
When I read stories of open carry in a Ct business and thefirearm owner is asked to cover up and thefirearm owner "Educates"
the store personal on gun laws I cringe and yell at my computer screen.
CGS..Sec 29-28 (e) The issuance of any permit to carry
a pistol or revolver does not thereby authorize the possession or carrying
of a pistol or revolver in any premises where the possession or carrying
of a pistol or revolver is otherwise prohibited by lawor is prohibited by the person who owns or exercises control over such premises. http://www.cga.ct.gov/2005/pub/Chap529.htm
As a business owner I can assure you, we are not required
to post a sign stating if you can OC/CC. I am also a gun owner and I know the confusion of Ct gun laws, and what this website and CCDL are trying to accomplish. The last thing CCDL or any organization wants is business owners complaining to the legislative body or the Ct Business Assoc. how their employees are being "Educated",
on gun laws.
To all OC'ers I respect what you are doing and commend you on you bravery, but please, when/if you are approached by store personal, be courteous, wise, and respectful.
Thank you for you time, and again I write this with respect to all OC'ers.
