    Harbor Freight/Coaches Corner

    In Harbor Freight this week, sign posted "All Firearms Prohibited." Returned everything I bought in last week for my employer. Coaches Corner has ambiguous sign that reads something to the effect of "We have the right to refuse service to anyone conceal carrying." I called later to clarify and the manager reported their intent is conceal carry is not allowed (bar or eating area), also that open carry is not allowed "because they serve alcohol." He restated no guns at all in their building is their intent. Feel their sign is open to interpretation, and I will not renew my touchdown club membership with them.

    Is that for all harbor freight, or local store only? It's been years since I've been to the one in West Allis.

    The touchdown club, with free sweatshirt, two for one drinks, cheap wings, is awesome. Too bad I will not be able to partake anymore!

    It is hard enough to keep track of these. Please keep them in the stickied thread.

    I've personally had a hard time keeping up with the 20 pages in that thread! It's getting very irritating, studying every entrance of every buisness I enter, trying to make sure I am not breaking the law.

    That is why I keep the first post up-to-date, with links to what post it goes to. The ones without links are ones on the WCI Facebook page.

    Sounds like Coaches wants to keep the immunity from liability by not posting

    BUT..............won't serve anyone who is CC.

    Neat little trick there don't ya think ?

    Wonder how many other businesses will try this little stunt.
    Any one of you lily livered, flea bitten, bow legged varmints care to slap leather with me?

    It's kind of funny that Harbor Freight would post after running two page ads in the NRA publication 'America's 1st Freedom' magazine, and probably others...

    Thers a Harbor Freight Tools across the street from where I work. I will drive by and see if they posted.
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    Rogue manager?
    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    So Coach's Corner reserves the right, but does not have a sign posted banning firearms according to law. Therefore, unless they refuse to serve you, you can go in armed, right?
