McDonald's- ANTI-GUN
 
This makes me want to exercise my right as a citizen of Indiana and open carry in McDonald's. I stopped eating there over a year ago because of thier anti-gun policies.

Ah, but then what explains her being an unpleasant little leftwing pain-in-the-*ss?

Hopefully, you also sent an e-mail to their international headquarters, explaining why you don't eat at their establishments anymore.

The almighty dollar is all that matters to them, and Mickey D's has a lot of competition these days from Wendy's etc. Gun owners need to stop eating there, and let their international headquarters know why.

It must have been a bad experience with a rectal thermometer....

I work for a world wide corporatoin who does not allow weapons of any sort in any of their buildings or even on their property. I can't keep any sort of weapon in my truck and park it in their parking lot. I'm technically not suppose to carry the knife I keep in my front pocket. I disagree with it 100% but at the same time I need the job so I can keep my wife warm and dry and keep some food on the table when hunting seasons out.

I worked for a rock quarry for awhile, and they have the same policy. Breaking this rule would result in immediate termination. They never searched (nor did they have the right) our trucks but if they did then they would be forced to overlook it. Of the 20 or so guys working 1st shift, at least 10 of us had guns in our vehicles at all times. Several guys had more than one gun at a time. We never talked about it around the supervisors and they never asked.

This is common in the world of construction & contracting. I have NEVER worked for a company that said it was "A-Ok" to carry, but I frequently have worked in some third world sh!tholes within our borders.

Oakland, Sacramento, Indianapolis ( the North Section ), Dallas/Ft. Worth, Chicago. Never once was I in one of those places without every member of my crew packing.

We used to carry two First Aid kits on the trucks. One was the large size, truck kit. Had all the usual stuff, plus tourniquets, rubber things for putting over the mouth of a victim to avoid AIDS, all the good stuff. Then we all carried the little 6" by 10" "personal" first aid kits in the cabs of the trucks with us. Metal box, two clasps, all white with a big red cross on the front.

The nice thing about these is, they can go anywhere, they look completely normal to have around you at all time, and with a little foam and some time, a full sized pistol ( like a 1911 ) and 2 extra mags fit in each and every one of them. Nobody was ever the wiser. If someone ever needed a bandaid, you told them what bin door to open on the truck and no one ever thought differently about it. :cool: Camouflaged in plain site.... :D

The good thing about residential construction is that if your building a house in the boondocks, you can shoot on your lunch break. We used to sight-in our rifles and shotguns at lunch, since most of our jobs were outside of city limits. City limits of a town of less than 10,000. We always got permission from homeowners. Hell, on one jobsite, not only did the 60 year old homeowner give us permission to shoot but he came back at lunch with his M-1 Garand and various other WWII weapons.

I work in an office... If a person came into this office with a gun they could cripple the largest segment of this corporation. Where I work customer service center for the world, we never close! This is the type of place that has back ups for the back up for the back up system on the phones, faxes, computers, etc.... One man, one gun could shut this place down. Our security isn't allowed to carry a gun! IMO, it's completely nuts... This is a sucessfully company in a very difficult time, they highly qualify as a target.
