    Hello,

    I'm sorry for the crappy cell phone pic. I had it set on high resolution, but on a 2.0mp Blackberry camera zoomed to 3x, that doesn't matter much.

    notice1.jpg
    The sign reads "No Person shall carry firearms or concealed firearms on these premises." Idiots. The address of this particular store front is 1304 N Cass St, Wabash, IN; feel free to write 'em!

    I pulled up in front of this place to walk to the Subway next door and saw this.

    I just burst out laughing as, in Indiana, these signs carry no weight of law. I have no use for places like this, anyway. Legal loan sharks is what they are.

    But, I felt they should get negative publicity for their token stance, anyway!

    Enjoy boycotting 'em!

    Regards,

    Josh

    Another gun free zone easy pick ins. The thugs know if you want to hit a place, hit one where everyone is unarmed.:) I would never go in there.

    LOL, the idea of "legal loansharking" falls under the guise of the advances being high risk. As for being easy to rob, who says the folks behind the counter aren't armed?

    Also the case here. Signs like these can be ignored. The business owner can ask you to leave, but you are committing no crime.

    From a loan shark no less. That 358% interest could certainly make someone want to start shooting something. :p

    Have the same signs here in Or. I don't use them anyway so I won't go in. But they do not carry the weight of law here either. Ask you to leave and so long as you do they can do nothing.

    There's a couple "no guns" signs in CO- one of the venues is a movie theater we go to.

    I carry anyway, as well as my wife and our friend. I thought to myself once, "Will- are you being a little psychotic about this? Do you really need to bring your gun to the MOVIE THEATER and risk getting caught?"

    As it turns out, no. No I wasn't.

    On another note, the "no guns" signs have been removed for the past few months.


    And DON'T FORGET - concealed means concealed. Your results may vary.

    One negative thing about these signs is not every employee agrees with them. Some would like it if they, or patrons of the business, could carry. And it also increases the odds that something WILL happen there, involving a firearm, and it will be more fuel for the fire of gun control, because it wasn't stopped. I wish people would just CC everywhere. And when something bad does happen, and we stop it, we get to be the heros instead of the villains. At least to the people who matter (the potential victims).
