Buckeye Firearms Foundation has "No Guns = No Money" cards for use with businesses that post "No Guns" signs. (http://www.buckeyefi...Stuff-Mall#ngnm
The front says " Your “no gun” sign prevents me from patronizing your business. So I, my family, and other gunowners will spend our money with your competitors. Look on the back to see why you should remove your sign."
The back says "Your “no gun” sign is bad for business. It does nothing to make you safer. It simply tells criminals you’re an easy target and drives away good customers with a concealed carry license. Unlike most people, license holders have passed a criminal background check. Statistics show we are far more law-abiding than the general public. Our numbers are growing every day. We are ideal customers and will patronize your business if you let us. Remove your sign and I, my family, and many other gun owners
will gladly return."
When we get concealed carry, similar cards will be handy for us to help educate business owners. Our Ohio brethren have had some success with these cards.
I like that idea, think I'll get myself a few for use after Illinois passes RTC
I recall reading on the Ohio carry site years ago, that some wag would go into a store with a no guns sign, load up on a lot of high ticket items, and just after the cashier rang it up, would ask for the manager to come over and explain that since the the store had a no-guns sign, he couldn't in good faith be in the store, since he 'might' be carrying. And walk out, leaving the merchandise, unpaid for and unpurchased, just sitting there, blocking the cashier stand, and smile on the way out the door.
I wonder how many times that was done, actually. Then again, how many managers and store owners would take down the sign.
Not saying I would do that here in ILL.......just sayin.....
