    put a sign up on their door "NO GUNS unless you are Police or Sheriff" but that would just infuriate an already unbalanced people who might find that provocative.

    •  Is it possible? (2+ / 0-)

      As a non American I remain confused (perplexed, shocked, disgusted, ...) with US gun laws, or the lack thereof.

      So a simple question.

      If a store can ban say the use of chewing gum in a store, or the consumption of food, or smoking, or say that all patrons must wear a shirt and shoes, can they also declare their store a gun free zone?

      If so ... big if ... it does create the potential for a grass roots movement to bring on some form of gun control ... as once there are areas you can not carry then it becomes more inconvenient to carry.

      Obviously it would need a bit of coordination but if say a number of chain restaurants announced together a common policy ...

      I know just dreaming ... too many nutcases about ... but the smoking ban had small beginnings too.

      There's room at the top they're telling you still But first you must learn how to smile as you kill If you want to be like the folks on the hill

      But it was a picture of a gun with the red circle with the line through it, the universal symbol for "No."
