Default Browning and FNUSA and the Second Ammendment

I stopped by the Browning/FNUSA's USA customer service center, which is very close to where I live and noticed something a bit disconcerting.

They have a huge sign plastered on their front entrance declaring that any firearm on the premises is to be unloaded.

Tell me how this is an indication of the right to keep and BEAR arms. I don't know about you, but I prefer to carry a concealed weapon with bullets in it. Seems to work better.

Your thoughts??

I agree with your thoughts but I agree more with the rights of private property owners. Respect of others rights on their private property is very important.

Probably been pressured by OSHA.

I highly doubt they do this without a good reason.

Won't keep bad guys from doing it but it will reduce ND from happening. Most law abiding half-retarded firearm owner is going in there without unloading the gun after seeing the sign.

Any gunstore ive ever been in requires you to unload firearms when bringing them in the store.

Does it apply to concealed defensive weapons?? common sense says no, it only applies to those firearms being openly displayed for reasons of commerce.

Most likely people show up there all the time with loaded firearms for repair and service. Usually only takes one instance of an unloaded gun perforating a ceiling for such a sign to show up.

All the gun stores in my area have the same signs but in small print it says it does not apply to CPL (concealed pistol license) holders concealed weapons. It is intended for firearms brought in for trade, smithing, or to be sold.

Live ammo and guns being built or serviced DO NOT MIX. I understand the need to prevent accidents. When officers show up for qualification they are required to leave all loaded ammo in their car. They enter the facility with unloaded weapons. They are given their ammo for qual and leave with an unloaded weapon (reload it before you drive off). Do You think they feel "naked" for a bit? Sure. They just have to get over it.

Private property owners have every right to regulate who comes onto their property carrying guns.

I would agree that these restrictions are simply a matter of avoiding ND's. I know we are all suposed to be highly trained profrssionals, capable of carrying a fully automatic weapon 24/7 with the safety off, "this is my safety sir" (from Blackhawh Down). But the reality is, anytime people are handling firearms that they "assume" are unloaded, bad things can happen. If you are going into this facility with a firearm, someone is probably going to be handling it. This is not a restriction of your 2A rights, its just safety rules on the part of people who are responsible for safety.
We as 2nd Ammendment supporters do ourselves a diservice when we rant and rave about this kind of stuff. While mayors and city councils get away with blatant violations of Constitutional rights all around the country, we are busy whinning about not being allowed to carry our locked and loaded pistols into the gun show. Let's get over it and put our attention where it belongs.

None of the guns stores in my area have restrictions. Actually very few business places in town have restrictions. Public buildings all have restrictions.
