    I sent a similar email to Cinemark. It was ignored as I guessed it would.

    What "OPSEC?" If they publicly display the sign, there is no need to protect their identity. I submit you post the name and location of the store in question, as it serves two purposes: 1) to warn others about this policy in case they weren't aware and 2) it allows fellow enthusiasts to join in on the campaign.

    Businesses need to know the ramifications of such signs, here in Texas we have the 30.06 sign requirement which means certain requirements must be met to make the sign enforceable. That leads to many businesses that display illegal signs to make their unknowing customers feel "safe" while in fact allowing CHL holders to carry on the premises without worry.

    Cheers! M2

    This is amazing. I'm really impressed. It's the first time I have seen an Email about this type of issue work (or appear to work).

    Great job doing the right thing for RTKBA.

    This is awesome. I'm glad that some stores actually listen to their clientele. Thanks for helping them to see the light.

    Outstanding!

    Very well done!
    Here in Texas, we call it the "30.06" sign. You have to LOVE the irony!:)
    In this economy, businesses can ill afford to alienate customers. Now, if
    somebody would come up with a vehicle to inform businesses of just how many there are of us who carry legally, we could change a lot of minds. I believe businesses would embrace us instead of trying to shun us.

    So what store was it that we might know and with whom we might consider doing business if we don't already?

    Here is my question to any business that is a self proclaimed GUN FREE ZONE. What security measures do YOU have in place to protect me in your store ? And what security measures do have in place that would keep a criminal for stealing my concealed carry weapon for my vehicle and killing everyone in this store ?
    Anyone that thinks a gun free zone is a good idea is a F'n Idiot.
