Gun UNFRIENDLY Businesses!

Rachel@OT
There have been many attempts to list businesses that allow or do not allow guns on their property. This is for our website visitors, customers, students and friends to have a place to post and view businesses that are gun friendly or not gun fiendly. This list as the title indicates is for the GUN UNFRIENDLY businesses that we do NOT want to support and encourage other carry holders NOT to visit or spend money with. There is a seperate topic for Gun Friendly Businesses. If you patronize a business and OBSERVE any "No Guns", "No Firearms", or "No Weapons" allowed signs posted, please reply to THIS post and list them here so we all know what businesses no to give money to.

ANTI GUN BUSSINESS LIST:

Exxon On the Run - Corner of Veterans Blvd. and Williams Blvd. Kenner, LA - Sign Posted - No Weapons Allowed - I saw the sign on the left side of the door in white letters. NO GUNS = NO BUSINESS
Come on girls... grab your guns!

This next GUN UNFRIENDLY business leaves me scratching my head...

FED EX in Harahan - this is the drop off/pick-up center. It's just off of Old Hickory across the street from Donovan's Marine Supply and Union Maintenance Service. - There is a sticker on the entrance door that bans guns and knives from the property.

They do most shipping of firearms for licensed gun dealers. I can bring 20 guns in for shipping or pick up 20 guns, but I cannot have my legally permitted to carry firearm which is concealed in it's holster under my shirt. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I guess they want their cake and eat it too. They will make money off of gun shipments while denying you the right to defend yourself. In the evening the place gets a little dark and I've seen many shady characters in the place. Company policy set by some anti-gun leftist piece of crap will take my money to ship a gun, but won't allow me to have one on me legally to defend my life or others just in case somebody decides to go on a rampage..... and we all know that those happen in the real world. I guess this means, I'll go out of my way to no longer give them any of the money my gun business earns.

John...

I too have run into the same problem with FedEx. I have sold some of my weapons to others that needed to have the weapon received through their F.F.L. and the choice was FedEx. I took the gun into the FedEx branch office and had the firearm properly marked and went through the entire process only to be confronted by the manager and told I could not ship through their branch office. I was told I would have to drive an additional 20  miles to the main branch office to send a firearm. When I got there I was confronted with signs that warned of not being allowed to bring a firearm onto the premises. That was odd in not being allowed to bring a gun on the premises when I needed to send the weapon through FedEx. Even the person behind the counter could not explain why the signs were posted when he regularly shipped weapons. The gentleman behind the counter also could not believe that the branch office would not accept the weapon because the packages would only be picked up at the branch office and brought to main shipping to be processed.

CONFUSING... Absolutely. Do I still use FedEx? Yes! It's the only game in town. I think FedEx needs to make things more stable in how they treat their customers. If you can send a gun through the main branch you should be able to send at any branch office. The packages end up at the same place. Having this happen to me on a number of occasions does not make for good client relations. If they want our business then let us do business.

Rant over,
Tye

Kevin,

Not sure I would have given them my business that night.  Understand it was the anniversary so maybe it really wasn’t an option for you.

Hope you don't give them any repeat business.  Might want to let them know too.

This is another Exxon On The Run gas station and store. It is located at Loyola Blvd. @ I-10 in Kenner. Just like the Williams Blvd. store, this one has a sign posted that prohibits weapons on the property.
Try your hardest not to do business with these businesses and support those that support you and your right to defend yourself.
Exxon no longer gets any of my hard earned money. Neither should they get yours.

I was thinking that maybe the NRA or  "someone"...On Target could design a gun friendly sticker that pro-carry businesses could put in their windows.  Something not too conspicuous.  Kind of like the thin blue line stickers idea.  That is if you don't know what it is you wouldn't think twice about it, might just think it is identifying you live in a certain neighborhood or whatever.  Nothing on the sticker that would indicate guns.  An inside thing that is in plain sight but only known to those in the know.  Once developed I'm sure the NRA would pick it up and run with it.

Semper Fi,

a'ka koa

Thanks Chuck.... I won't let this idea of yours go to waste.

John,
 
Haven't been on the matrix for a few days so I just got your message.  Glad you like the idea and it sound like you have the tools and passion to make it happen.  It would be awesome if it goes national!
 
Just caught a show on Spike TV this morning that pleasantly suprised me, Concealed/Carry School.
 
 
Shows like that would be a good marketing point too.
 
Semper Fi,
 
Chuck

Technically, this is Anti-Gun business #4 if we were asigning numbers to the list of places that deny people the right to defend themselves.

#4 The Palace Theatre - Elmwood 20 in Harahan. There are "No Weapons Allowed" stickers on all of the entry doors.

Who are these signs for? It's for the law abiding CCW Permit holder.... that's who!
No criminal is going to see that sign and say "Awww.....Man! I can't bring my gun inside this place! How am I going to bust a cap now?"

This is corporate America trying to condition us for being unarmed and protecting criminals rights instead of the law abiding populace. Mass shootings occur where? In "No Gun Zones" that's where!
I will no longer give the Palace Theatres anymore of my money. I will search for the nearest theatre that does accept my right to self defense and I'll spend my money there.... heck I'll even buy a large Coke and popcorn along with some candy!

Whoops knew i was forgetting something important. Duplessis Buick is in Gonzales. Signs are posted at all doors and also in the service department. I got the info off of www.bayoushooter.com and i feel its pretty credible.

That's good to hear Meredith! Businesses that REFUSE us our Constitutional rights deserve no support from us! To deny your patrons the right to self defense by creating a GUN FREE zone is damn near EVIL! Where do mass killings occur? At places set up as GUN FREE zones that's where!

Law abiding citizens are not the problem. Why prevent them from concealed carry if the state has granted them a permit to do so. Permit holders do not commit crime, they get permits to defend themselves from crime. Criminals and psychos go to gun free areas because they want easy pickings with no chance of them getting hurt while doing there dastardly deeds. If a permit holder is carrying concealed, how would all the other patrons know there was a gun in there presence? That's the wholwe point behind concealed carry.... bad guys don't know who has the gun!

The only businesses that prohibit you from legally carrying a firearm are those ran by anti-gun zealots. Criminals do not obey the law to start with, the only people in their businesses with guns will be the criminals.....duhhhh!

Give ni financial support to any business that refuses your right to self defense. I go out of my way to make sure in these tough economic times to refuse them my business. Maybe they will change their minds when their profits drop, or they will go out of business while pro- self defense businesses prosper. Please keep that in mind the next time you spend money!
