Not many stores, businesses, or restaurants is this area of Northern Illinois are hanging the NO GUNS ALLOWED signs and my wallet certainly shows my appreciation.
I decided that some quality jewelry would be appropriate for my lovely wife's birthday, so I decided to shop a local high-end big-name stand-alone store. My concern was that I was armed and I remember the store as (at least on occasion in past years) having armed security; I assumed that they would have a NO GUNS ALLOWED sign by the entrance. I hate the idea of leaving my gun in the car, so I decided to shop elsewhere if I saw a NO GUNS ALLOWED sign posted. I drove by the entrance and saw no such sign. I then parked and walked to the entrance and again could find no sign. Once inside, there were no signs posted so I happily gave the store my business.
I am not going to name the business because I do not want to make it a target for the anti-gun zealots, but I want to say THANK YOU to them and all other businesses that decided not to hang those worthless signs.
