 I would like to take this opportunity to request a small token of consideration. Before you enter our store please ask yourself this question: will I need to handle my currently loaded firearm at any point during the course of business in the store? If the answer is yes, for the love of humanity, please unload your firearm before you enter the building. Those of us behind the counter and your fellow customers are loved by friends and family alike. Out of respect for them and us, please do not handle a loaded firearm while surrounded by so many lives. Life is a precious gift, highly valued by most of us. Please do not treat the value of all the lives around you so lightly as to draw a loaded firearm in a store. While you may feel completely confident in your capabilities of handling a firearm, please understand we have guns pointed and waved in our direction all the time (1st NRA Safety Rule broken). Frequently, those guns are loaded and the finger is on the trigger (2nd and 3rd Safety rule broken). Forgive us for reacting strongly but we have numerous examples of negligent discharges permanently embedded in our range and therefore do not trust anyone with a loaded gun in their hand. Even employees do not handle a loaded firearm in the storeroom. To do so violates all safety rules. We understand it is your Constitutional right to carry. Truly, we do. Rare is the gun store employee that does not support the 2nd Amendment. However, please realize by handling a firearm in an unsafe manner you are providing fodder to the anti-gun crowd and thus damaging the pro-2nd Amendment efforts.

Sincerely,

Gun Store Employee
