    Great Wolf Lodge Sign

    The attached picture is just inside of the front door of Great Wolf Lodge. No metal detectors, no way to enforce it. If it's concealed how would they know anyway? This bit of information is not anywhere online on their website.

    Open carry is ok (per the sign)

    No sign saying it's not

They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands.

    LOL, love your thinking. I would love to see a scenario play out,

    Great Wolf Employee, "sir, we don't allow firearms in this facility, there is a sign over there"

    OCer, "yes I saw the sign as I walked by with my concealed firearm so I have now positioned it to not be concealed"

    GWE, uh uh uh....but....let me talk to my manager...

    Some will see the sign, go back to their vehicle, and lock it in the trunk.

    Some will see the sign and just proceed with it concealed, ignoring it.

    Then there are those who are carrying illegally to begin with and won't give a crap if there was a sign or not.


    The way I see it is it's just something their corporate shyster told them to post as another CYA move.
    "If I shoot all the ammo I am carrying I either won't need anymore or more won't help"

    "If you refuse to stand up for others now, who will stand up for you when your time comes?"

    Half of those probably couldn't read the the sign anyway.

    The main reason why I say that is because in MT and other states that are specifically by law off limits only to conceal carry, while open carry remains lawful. Of course, here we know that its just the business posting the sign but ones to wonder if there actual intent of the sign is just directed towards conceal carry as it would imply or any carry. Myself, would take the sign literally and carry openly like normal.

    I was actually thinking this same thing about MT... I took a quick look around their corporate site, thinking they might be HQ'd in MT. Looks like they are out of WI actually. They might have someone in upper management or corporate security that is from MT, which could also explain the sign. Lets me honest, that isn't a sigh that you see a lot here in WA. Usually it is crudely put together signs with incorrect RCW's listed on them.

    Remember, WI, up until last November was OC only...there was no CC.

    If this outfit??? (whoever they are) is headquartered in WI, it is very possible the sign means exactly as read...don't conceal, however OC is OK.
