    Citizen's State Bank NO OPEN CARRY. Heads up.

    I received a phone call from:

    Dustin Hundt
    Assistant Vice President-Commercial Lending
    dhundt@citizensstatebank.us
    620 Main St., P.O. Box 219
    La Crosse, WI 54602
    608-785-2265

    Asking me to not carry in the bank any longer. He asked this in deference to the females in the bank who were robbed at gun point a few months ago. He said that none of the girls were scared of me and that my manner was friendly enough but just the sight of the gun caused the gal who had a gun put to her head more personal distress.

    I can understand this.

    I recommended that he place no guns signs at all entrances because there are several open carriers in La Crosse area and he said he would take that under advisement. He said he is a strong proponent of the 2A but in deference to his employees, would ask that I keep the gun in the car.

    This is just a heads up, not a call to action.

    Beware the evil paradigm of consideration, expectation, and then requirement. He is asking your consideration of feelings, that he expects as quid pro quo for service, and will require of all with his signs.

    Jeez, if the place was robbed then the need to carry is even greater, sorry to the girl who got a gun stuck to her head by a criminal, maybe she should put in for worker's comp. for emotional distress, not let her fears influence the level of safety for others.

    I'd be banking elsewhere

    I feel bad for all those folks that have been in car accidents. How terrible to never be able to look at a car again.

    Time to find a better bank. Not sure that's possible but one that doesn't offend your rights is better than one that does.

    Well, it is hardly a citizen's bank anymore. Citizens are not denied their human right of self-defense.

    Welcome to The Sheeple State Bank of Wisconsin.

    Certainly, I won't be doing business there.

    But... If they want a "gun free zone" they need to be vocal about it. Well, maybe not "vocal, but you understand. Also, as far as asking for a posting and getting it... Yeah, that will happen... My bank kicked me out once, so I went in and talked to the president, and told him he should post up this policy, and let his bank become an easy target for criminals. That was 3-4 months ago or more, still no signs...

    By his 'logic' I should be afraid of men (raped), afraid of cars (crash), afraid of motorcycles (crash), afraid of blacks (held at gunpoint), afraid of guns (held at gunpoint), afraid of people in ski masks (held at gunpoint)...

    When the place I worked at was held up at gunpoint, we were jumpy for a few weeks, but eventually settled down again. (I spent that evening with large amounts of alcohol & chocolate, watching the Wizard of Oz. All in all, it seemed a good way to cope.)

    I'm sorry the woman is having problems adjusting; worker's comp should cover counselling.

    IF you must ask someone to post their premises, please consider asking them to use this wording:

    WARNING - Beyond this Point Only CRIMINALS have guns

    Otherwise, all you are doing is messing it up for the rest of us law-abiding citizens.

    stay safe.
