    Liquor store at Silver Spring Shopping Center posted. Read why this stinks.

    I don't live anywhere near this place 6000 W. Silver Spring, Milwaukee. And it's a crummy neighborhood. Right across the street from West Lawn housing projects.

    But every now and then I go there and stock up on some brew. They have this section of the store called "discount corner" and the deals are excellent:

    6 packs of Sam Adams $2.99
    12 packs of Sam adams $5.99
    12 packs of Corona $5.99
    6 packs of Strohs $1.99.
    6 pack of Wisconsin Amber $2.99.
    And so on.

    I kid you not. A fellow at work told me about it last year and I've been going there once a month since. Always armed, of course.

    Tonight I noticed it was posted "No weapons of any kind" on the door. The DOJ seems to think I might be able to legally ignore that sign but why should I be able to when other law abiding people exercising their rights can't? I had been on my way home from Gun World in Germantown and was open carrying tonight. As I was walking through the door I saw the sign and turned around and left. Took my money somewhere else!

    I didn't bother to talk to the 2 creeps working there as neither seemed to speak English in any proficient way. I can only guess what they were saying when they say my Glock on my hip. I will have to find out who owns the store and contact them as to why I will not be going out of my way to patronize his/her store.

    Any help finding this information will be appreciated!

    Do you have any receipts with the business name? Might not list it aside from something generic on a cash receipt but if you've made a credit/debit card purchase, it usually has the the legal name listed on their merchant account on any receipts that print from the terminal.

    I'm sorry I don't know the business in question, but I also don't understand the statement above.

    Are you LEO or something?

    I'm wondering about this too.
    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    Regardless if he is a LEO or not, he understand what our rights are.

    Well as I have never heard of a liquor store being robbed, and now that they have posted no weapons are permited inside they are perfectly safe. I mean how much safer do they need to be?
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?
