Missouri Introduces Bill To Hold Businesses That Post “No Guns” Signs Liable

Ohio – -(Ammoland.com)-Fellow pro-gun Ohioans,

Most of us are frustrated by the prevalence of signs that prohibit us from carrying in various businesses that we encounter day to day. There are many schools of thought on how to discourage these “Criminal Protection Zones” or CPZs. One way is to hand them a “No Guns = No Money” Card:

Another way would be how Missouri is dealing with it. There, legislation is being considered to hold businesses who prohibit firearms liable for injuries to people who could have defended themselves.

Certainly, businesses are averse to incurring liability. Such a remedy would bring more CPZ signs down faster. That's good for everybody.

Please feel free to contact our Ohio Representatives and Senators to express your pro-gun views in general and your desire for a solution to CPZs such as Missouri is attempting in particular:

Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty!

I think that this bill should be a Federal bill. I am tired of these businesses just doing what ever they want and most of these signs are illegal. I believe as I have been doing some research that most if not all of these signs must have state or federal ordinance codes on them to make them legal. I am tired of these idiots who put who sign and then think they can just call the police and the cops will arrest any one who has a gun on them. I my self when I see any of these… Read more »

Best idea ever, next to just removing signs and allowing people to carry.

Simply REFUSE to do business with them and tell them why you refuse to shop at their store. There are too many other good businesses around to have to deal with the anti-Second Amendment businesses.

Be nice when you contact them. No threats. Simply a loss of business and MONEY. Include the fact that you will make sure all your friends know about their anti-gun stance.

Schnucks grocery in St. Louis had signs posted for a while. Several of their stores were ROBBED. The signs came down for whatever reason!!

Funny how that works, eh? Aadvertise a Certified Defenseleses Victiim Zone, and guess who shows up armed? Duhhh… the stupid criminals aren’t THAT stupid.

I seem to recall a similar situation with some fast food chain, making a big fuss about “we want our places to be safe” so YUO can’t bring your guns inside.. and all the GOOD people either stopped coming or left their guns in the car. The thugs realised “hey, they’ve created a very rich target zone……..”.

Didn’t take long for the owners to wake up and smell the coffee…..

Boycotting seldom works because there may not be another business in the area that provides that service, especially in smaller towns/cities. And there are likely plenty of libturds and spineless conservatives that would patronize the store anyways. It’s far better to hold these businesses accountable for the safety of their patrons, with the possibility of legal action in the event of an incident.

This type of legislation has been successfully implemented in Tennessee. A great number of no gun signs disappeared the day the new law went into effect. Also in Tennessee, the sign poster’s liability extends all of the way to and from where the permit holder had to leave his or her firearm for it to be safe while they went to the posted property. It does not violate property rights, rather makes the property owner liable for protecting those they are not allowing to protect themselves.

That is an excellent idea. If owners will not allow us to protect ourselves then they should provide security if not then pay the price.
