Local Businesses to post "No Gun Signs"

Already local businesses are getting ready to post signs banning concealed firearms on their premises as reported in the Lincoln Journal Star.

With that the No Guns = No Money campaign is kicking into high gear.

Many of Lincoln's Pro CCW folks are already putting together the business cards that have worked so well in many of the other states that have enacted CCW.

Note to Lincoln Businesses;

If your hurting now from lost revenue due to the smoking ban and any of the other misguided things the Mayor has succeeded in accomplishing the last thing you want to do is piss off this communitties law abiding firearms owners. We can be a surely lot when we feel we are being disrespected or marginalized.

Understand that should you post "No Guns signs" we will respect your private property rights, because we are law abiding citizens. We won't leave our side arms in the car, we just won't darken your door or cash register with our hard earned yankee dollars.

Do you understand that; We are making a list and checking it twice to find out if your naughty or nice. Not only won't we patronize your place you won't even get a lump of coal.

My wife and I eat out regularly and just as an example we generally spend a few hundred bucks a month at a certain eatery. Should that eatery post signs they will be loosing approximately $2400.00 a year, and that is just from us. Consider that we have friends and family that are are pro CCW that eat there as well. By posting a "No Gun sign" that business will likely loose the better part of $10,000.00 a year, and that is just from the people I know. How many other folks will not eat there after the signs are posted? This one business alone could loose tens of thousands of dollars in yearly revenue.

But hey if you can afford it by all means go for it, like I said we the law abiding firearms owners will respect your decision and stay away from your businesses.

Didn't we learn anything from the smoking ban fiasco?

Authors note; Yes I know about the story included information on a proposed ban for public buildings. That will be the crux of a post all its own. Stay tuned!! Same Gun time, Same Gun Blog!!!!!!!
