This is the text of an email I sent to Toys 'R' Us.
To whom it may concern,
Earlier today I was open carrying a firearm in accordance with Utah law in the Orem, Utah Toys 'R' Us store.
I was going to buy a toy for my daughter, but before I was able to, I was informed by an employee that I could not have my firearm in the store. I was further informed there is a sign to that effect on the front door of the store.
I replied that I would leave, and not spend any money there. I put the toy back and left.
I went to a local Wal-Mart and bought the exact same toy there, despite the slightly higher price.
I am a concealed carry permit holder, and carry a firearm for defense of myself and my family.
I would like to inquire if this is a corporate policy, or if this might be an individual store doing it's own thing.
Pending your response, I will not be spending any money in any Toys 'R' Us stores, or Babies 'R' Us stores.
I will also being asking members of www.utahconcealedcarry.com and www.opencarry.org as well as everyone with whom I regularly associate with, to join me in such a boycott.
I would appreciate a timely reply on this matter.
