A bank the welcomes concealed carry
 
There is a bank in Kansas City that has no problem with concealed carry. And the president of the bank does carry. And he apprehends a robber.

I have yet to see a gun buster sign on a bank.

The only posted bank branches that I can think of in the KC area are in posted supermarkets. To tell you the truth, I'm not sure which supermarkets they are. I haven't been in a posted store since the Kansas law went into effect.

I work at the corporate HQ of a banking company which strictly prohibits employees to have weapons on the premises (Oklahoma law explicitly exempts parking lots from such prohibition). If I carried at work, it would be an immediate dismissal if found out, so I don't. Kudos to the bank in the article for allowing employees to carry.

JWagner got it right; the bank even has a "Welcome" sign on the door for lawful carriers. The Kansas City TV stations (especially the one I used to work for) gave the occurrence great coverage. Might be noted that the bank president didn't do anything in the bank, he followed the thief out the door and captured him in the parking lot, thereby not putting his employees or customers in any jeopardy. He held the perp at gunpoint with the assistance of another armed bank employee until the police arrived. Great story; great banker, great bank! I'd move my money there if it didn't mean a 75-mile one-way trip to cash a check!

I rarely if ever see a posted bank. I do, however, see them all the time with signs that say to "please remove any hats, hoodies, visors, and sunglasses" or you will be refused service until you do.

I'd bet the bank president ran though the options in his head before he ever set foot in the bank, or at other places too. I have and I don't even carry.

This man is a true blue, red-blooded American.

An American I'm proud to be in the ranks with.

The bank manager said he could see the robber was slow moving and frail. If the guy had been in good health Thompson would have let him go. He was likely pretty sure who he was dealing with.... He might not have remembered the robbers name but he knew it was a regular customer.

I've never seen a gun buster sign on a bank in Texas.

I'm pretty sure banks WANT CHL customers.
