Would You Like To See a “Guns Are Welcome Here” Sign In Your Local Store? [POLL]
Guns and gun control has become a massive topic of discussion across the United States and a focal point of both national and state politics. The conversation has run non-stop on both sides of the issue. This latest YouTube video for a company advertising the sign pictured above has caused yet another heated round of discussion.
The video was posted to the YouTube account 'nesafetysupply' which is owned by the company North Eastern Safety and Supply. The video features a person advertising a sign for sale that reads:
“GUNS ARE WELCOME ON THE PREMISES. PLEASE KEEP ALL WEAPONS HOLSTERED UNLESS NEED ARISES. IN SUCH CASE, JUDICIOUS MARKSMANSHIP IS APPRECIATED.”
These signs are for sale starting at $19.00 and go up to $35.00 and as state in the video, can be shipped anywhere.
Montana's laws on concealed weapons does allow for private citizens to carry concealed firearms. However, that person is required to have a permit issued by the state of Montana, or an equally legal permit from another state. You can see a full run down of Montana's concealed weapon laws at the Montana Department of Justice's website.
We would like to hear your thoughts. Does seeing a sign like this posted in a place of business encourage you to shop there? Or would you choose to avoid shopping in a place that displays this sign?
