AZ: Chandler Costco no longer posting

Today (8-18-13) I noticed the large sign at the Chandler Costco prohibiting firearms was missing. This is the store just south of the mall. I don't know what brought this about but I welcome the change. To the person(s) who wrote letters/made the change--THANK YOU!!

Costco is a member only store and the no firearms rule is in the agreement you sign when you become a member.

hmmmm, I downloaded an agreement form and there's no mention of firearms restriction on site.

BTW, membership card isn't needed to visit Costco Pharmacy.

In approximately 10 years of Costco membership I've never seen the letter posted by Lee-online (my wife probably tossed it before I could read it). My policy is to look for the sign at the door. If there's no sign, there's no prohibition; I will excercise the liberty. And NOBODY KNOWS I'M ARMED!!!

Life is good.

No where in that letter does it say firearms are forbidden. They hem and haw but never actually say it. Saying they are not necessary is not saying they are not allowed. Splitting hairs, yes but Arizona law is very specific.

1. I am not going to pay for the privilege to shop at a store.
2. I sure as hell wont pay or shop at an anti gun store.

If I would notice a no gun sign, they don't carry the weight of law here but I would still take my business elsewhere.

Costco is an anti gun company, why support them when there are others who do support us gun owners.

I don't shop at Costco. I shop at Sam's Club and the small yearly fee is more than made up for in savings.. I was only pointing out that regardless of their store policy, in Arizona (and a lot of states) if they are not posted properly they cannot enforce it.

for your position, I would say check twice and make sure you are not mistaken. The reason I say this is that in TX the properly ban CHL carry on any premises that is not already pre-emptively banned, then one must inform CHL carriers that they are not permitted to carry therein. That requirement to inform can come in one of three ways.

1. properly worded and formatted 30.06 sign
2. verbal informative - being told directly "you can't carry here"
3. any form of written informative - including that letter that is posted.

I keep on wondering why LEOs are exempt from the no carry rules. LEOs would shoot someone for the same reasons that civilians would.

It says the policy isn't new, which means they have it written down somewhere else, and in that version they might specifically say firearms are not allowed. You'd have to read the membership agreement to see.

However, as in most states, if they don't post, then legally it's allowed, but they can still ask you to leave, and I'm sure the Membership Agreement would allow them to revoke your membership.

So just keep your weapon concealed and nobody will know.

That's right - there is a CC in CCW.

In TX, LEOs are not exempt, not all of them any way... According to the wording of the law here, they must be actually carrying out their official duties. Can they go in armed and investigate? Sure. Can they go in armed and buy something? Technically, no. But here's the catch... who's going to arrest/cite/prosecute them? No one.

Exempt? No. Above the law? As long as no one prosecutes, yes.

Interesting that Costco letter is from Delaware. I would have thought such a policy would come from corporate in Washington. I've cc'd in Costco.
