My family and I had shopped at the XXXX store for many years and have been shopping at the XXX, XXX location since it opened. It has been brought to my attention that recently a No Firearms sign has been posted at the entrance to the store. What you have done is announce to criminals that you have create for them a victim rich environment. Do you honestly believe "criminals" are going to follow your rule? Why do you think they are called "CRIMINALS"?
I am license by the state of Louisiana to carry a concealed firearm and I possess City of XXXX Special Officers Commission. You have rendered both null and void on your property.
Since you have chosen to trample my Constitutional Right to protect my family while on your property we will be taking our business and our money to Wal-Mart. Why Wal-Mart. Not only does Wal-Mart furnishes "ARMED" Police Officers for our protection while on their property, Wal-Mart supports my RIGHT to carry a firearm while shopping in their facilities. Wal-Mart provides me with double protection; armed Police Officers and my own firearm. You, on the other-hand have decided to deny me the only protection I had while on your property.
Should you choose to either remove the sign or provide armed escorts to and from our vehicle and a guard to make sure a criminal can not steal my firearms from my vehicle while shopping in your store, we will then, and only then, consider making Whole Foods our grocery store of choice once again.
Grammar police, high school diploma and proof of graduation. Do you know why we are having this discussion?
