    Jewelry Store Fail

    Jared, at GLX apparently didnt like open carry very much. Let's see them point the sign out to armed robbers and see what it gets them.

    I would say that this sign is a dangerous ordinance.

    But you really have to admire the way they're Trying to make it look like they are quoting a section of Michigan law...... without actually quoting anything or giving a citation to anything. That takes Talent.

    those signs are at every jared in every state and they pre-date the OC movement, at least in its current, more public form. i emailed them about this silly policy after their sterling heights store got held up. i asked them how the policy was working out for them... all i got in response was a blank email. they are VERY anti.

    I didnt see a sign last fall when I went in there OC, nobody said anything. Im sure if such a strongly worded sign were in place at the time, it would have come up.

    i don't know about GLX, but the pittsburgh and sterling heights stores have had those identical signs for years and all jared locations have been listed on the MCRGO unfriendly list

    You know, I was just about to rob this store with my gun, and then I saw this sign on the door. I had to turn around. I mean, no guns means no guns, right? Signs like this are going to put me out of business!

    lol.

    The sign can only cost them money, if we go there, see the sign, we will leave. If an anti goes there, sees the sign, they are already there, they dont gain. If a thief sees the sign, cha-ching.

And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    We have a jewelry story here in the Milwaukee area (Robert Haack Diamonds) who plans on putting up signs. He keeps saying how "we need to work together to find the best option." We've had OC forever and there have been a number of people who have carried in that store. What we've told him a number of times is, if he puts up a sign and something happens in his store, he can and will be held liable. Oh, and he says is pro-gun/rights.

    Thanks for post & links Protias. Whenever I need a morale boost I shall watch the Penn & Teller videos, they give me hope for OUR/"We the peoples" country I will use them also to sway some of the gun control people I know. {fat chance, but have I to try.} It is hard to have a factual conversation with someone who can only speak in terms of "feelings" & "fears". A history forgotten is a history that shall be repeated...
