I'm not sure if the "Wall of Shame" on the Posted app might lead some people to not go to locations that are not posted at all. It seems that many chains must leave the decision as to whether or not to Post up to the manager or possibly the franchise owner, because several businesses listed on the Wall of Shame have locations here in Rockford where I live that are not Posted. The Walgreens that frequent is not posted, Nor is the McDonalds, or the Subway. I would hope that gun owners not penalize a business that is not Posted just because others owned by the company or by other franchise owners has decided to ban guns.

There are a few Buffalo Wild Wings that are not posted (even some that do not have the generic no weapons language on their doors). I don’t know if it is an oversite, or the franchisee doesn’t agree with the rule. Either way, I patronize those locations.

I should check out the Buffalo Wild Wings here in Rockford. I used to enjoy their wings, but had a hard time with the noise level in their restaurants. Putting up "No Guns" signs was enough to make sure I did not patronize.

The "Wall of Shame" is businesses who have the most locations posted.  McDonalds & Subway are just a matter of volume.  They leave the decision to the individual franchisees, and they're both so big that the anti-gun franchises are enough to make the list.  I would suspect that far fewer than 10% of McDonalds and Subways post anti-gun.

 

I agree that one should make their decision on a location-by-location basis.  There is the option to add "pro-gun / neutral" for a location which isn't posted.  I hope this helps!

The BWW in Sterling IL has no signage.

Baxter Credit Union. No signage.

However, they do not support the Second. I HAD a personal account with them and attempted to open a business account. Baxter Credit Union or BCU said they have a policy about not doing business with firearm companies. So long story short I closed the personal account because Baxter does not respect nor support the Second amendment.

Email sent.  I have a nice "stock" anti-gun posting email that I just change the name and a couple of details. :)  But I don't expect any response.  There are an awful lot of Hiltons who are posted, and they've all ignored me (and others) in the past.  Consider switching to Marriott / Starwood properties.  They are overall much more carry-friendly.

 

From my research, usually Hilton, Hyatt & Holiday Inn are frequently anti-gun on their various properties.  Usually (but not always), Marriott, Starwood, Best Western are not posted.  Of all the chains, I think Hilton is the most anti-gun. :(
