Property owners and guns
 
What do you all think about business or property owners banning firearms on their property? I think its wrong on one hand but on the other hand, I do realize that they have a right to make the rules on their own property. What do you all think?

If they get robbed they won't have to worry about a permit holder stepping in to save them.

i guess right now i feel pretty damn lucky(again) being i will be assuming or taking over a family business and therefore either way it will be up to myself and my partner regarding the company policy- our office is in an area (dead end street up against RR tracks) that could be considered questionable after dark.

When I ran my business most of my workers were felons and I was armed.

When you are the boss, you write the rules.

It's good to be king!

I think it can't be wrong if they make the rules. I'm not sure what you are getting at, but if your employer does not allow guns on their property by their employees, then you follow the rules. If you decide that you are more right than they are, then fully expect to lose your job with no gripe. If you don't want to work for them, don't.

I don't see this as an issue.

Theft of property is not a threat to anyone's life. In most cases and in most states, theft of property is not a shooting situation. The right to defend one's life with a firearm and theft of property don't always meet in the middle.

A shopping mall in Omaha put up "No Firearms" signs that forbid licensed conceal carry holders from carrying in the mall. Then a young deranged man came in with an SKS and killed a bunch of innocent people (in Von Maur, a high-class department store in the Westroads Mall in Omaha)--no one was there to stop him--he just kept shooting until he decided to eat a bullet. I believe the signs have since been removed...

The operative words are their property. I don't like businesses that have "Weapons Free Zone" signs and I try to avoid them. But they can do what they please.

You're exactly right, but it's up to the permit holder whether or not he or she wants to go onto private property unarmed.

I mean ARMED robbery specifically. There have been MANY cases here in Nashville where they go in to rob a place, get what they want and then shoot the person who gave it to them anyways. A liquor store in east Nashville was being robbed and a permit holder shot the assailants and was thanked by the business owner in person and it was broadcast on the news. I live in a very pro-gun state thankfully.
