    I took my wife's wedding set in for it's annual inspection/check-up today and was pretty disgusted when I saw the entrance. A legal 30.06 sign. We've been using this store for 10 years, now we're going to go somewhere else. A friend of my wife works there and has always given us great service. I'll go ahead and send the whole no-guns = no money emails, but I doubt they'll reach anyone that cares.

    Several hours later....

    Suprisingly, I got a fairly quick response. Not surprisingly, it's the typical sheeple speak.

    Simply put: Their choice and your choice.

    I would, however, choose to shop elsewhere.

    In many ways, Jared's is a clueless chain store... Moving your business, regardless of their ccw policy is a wise move.

    Sounds like they do not want your business or mine and maybe a lot of other peoples as well. I do not know about Texas but here in Missouri you can not be arrested for ignoring a posted store, just asked to leave is it. Now if you do not leave that is another matter.

    Even though its a stupid policy, I personally have no problem with a person or company wanting to exercise their right to be "king of their castle." After all, it is their private property, not yours or mine.

    And on that note, I'd also choose to shop elsewhere, where my guns are welcome.

    Oh I definitely agree that they do have the right to post the sign. I'll excercise my right to shop elsewhere. But... I'm going to do my best to make others aware of Jared's "corporate policy".

    Come on in, spend 20 grand on our rocks and then we'll watch out the window as you try to get to your car with it. :fire:

    Perhaps they are connected with Jared of Subway ,who's from Houston.
    No surprise then.:rolleyes:

    "dangerous ordinance"

    Indeed, it seems to be if one must go into a 'trinket n' bauble' shop sans weapon.

    "Ordnance" may have been proofed before being sent out, but theirs surely wasn't.

    This is what spell-check does to people.

    They are over-priced on watch repairs also, IMHO, the swine.

    Just so you know, Jared's is a subsidy of Kay jewelers.(per my friend who runs a Kays)

    So Jared's in Texas has an armed guard?

    Mr. Miller,

    As a law abiding CHL owner I too have gone through extensive background checks and training, as well as training that i have instilled upon myself. Unlike your hired security guard, i have a vested interest in protecting my own life. Since your security guard probably makes somewhere in the area of about $12 per hour, I suspect that his first action upon being encountered with a dangerous situation would be to decide that his meager paycheck was not enough to get killed over your stores property or your customers safety.

    Enjoy knowing that your company has successfully ostracized a significant portion of the law abiding community, people who most likely have enough money to spend it on jewelery. Also keep in mind that the presence of signs are usually not an effective deterrent to a criminal intent on committing murder or robbery. I should hope that one day the difference between feeling safe and actually being safe will become apparent to you and your company. Hopefully this will happen before one or more of your employees or customers falls victim to a murderous criminal.

    Lawfully and respectfully yours,

    Yeah, go ahead and boycott, but they are definitely capitalists, not socialists. Just because they don't like guns does not mean they are socialists.

    With 289000 CHL holders, the potential seems significant. However they only comprise about 1.2% of the Texas population. Of the 289K, I wonder how many actually shop at Jareds?

    Good email Mekender.

    Well, that is THEIR description. I would describe it more as a person with a sidearm that they may or may not be able to deploy due to their lack of physical and or mental ability.

    I've been boycotting Jared's since a go-round with my wifes engagement ring several years back. Whenever I do buy "rocks" for the wife (admittedly not often, neither one of us cares all that much for jewelry) I still send a copy of the receipt to Jared's HQ along with a "this could have been your sale" note.

    They don't seem to really care but I enjoy giving them a poke in the eye when I can.

    So does this mean that after you make your expensive jewelry purchase that Jared's highly trained security personnel are personally going to safely escort you back to your vehicle where you had to leave your firearm?

    Frankly, I fail to see what the controversy is. They don't want your business...so don't give it to them.

    When Jared's (or its parent) go into Chapter 11, you'll have your revenge.

    In the meantime, if you want good deals on jewelry, go to the show at Dallas Market Hall on May 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.
