Please avoid Costco.

As many have posted, Costco is not friendly towards CCW. What is far more important is something I have recently found. The exit doors at Costco have a 15-second delay on them. Charming! So when some maniac opens fire on you, you get to dodge bullets for 15 seconds. Unarmed, of course.

Consumers need to fight back. Corporations have to listen. It has to stop!

I am avoiding a very strong temptation to use a certain s-word. In any case, of course the 15-second rule is to prevent dashers. However, why not just have a camera? I do not want any delay in my egress. If I got in any way injured because of this 15-second delay, I would sue for everything.

I suspect Costco isn't the only big-name retailer that does this.

Actually, many retailers do not do this. It turns out that they have to post the delay time very conspicuously. If you do not see it, then there is most likely not a delay.

What will get them really sued is having a delay without a sign. I've looked at the laws, and most specify a maximum time of fifteen seconds. I'd like fifteen seconds alone in a room with whoever wrote those laws :evil: .

I have never seen a delay on a door at a store. Is this normal or just certain times of the day? I would think customers in general would get upset about that.

Can't resist anymore. :evil: :evil: :evil: . SHEEPLE. This is the exact same corporate mentality that allows no-gun signs to be put up. Why would anyone care about a 15-second door limit? If it was a real problem, the door would of course open automatically. Besides, there would NEVER be a madman running loose with a rifle. There's a law against it! Costco know that thugs spend most of their time reading weapon policies.

Well, at least you can nail the thug if he tries to gun and run! :fire: . Yet another example of corporate evil. You will never see such a policy at a family-run store.

Costco must be paying their PR firm pretty well these days. Working weekends!
