    Well according to their statement, police officers are exempt from the no gun rule. If that is the case the employee is out of luck. I'm not sure where you saw the word uniformed. The company statement was "Our policy is that any member of law enforcement is always welcomed in our store at any time, as a customer or in an official capacity."

    Now if I owned or ran a jewelry store I would put coffee and donuts out if it would keep armed policemen in my store!

    From the link, the company posted this:

    "We have tremendous respect for law enforcement, and we thank the Office for bringing this to our attention. We will be sure to reinforce store training regarding our firearm policy with specific regard to uniformed law enforcement," [my emphasis]

    I didn't see any quotation of any policy, but just comments that Kay's had posted online somewhere, this being one of them. It sounds like they may have (or change to) a policy allowing uniformed officers to bring in weapons. It sounds like they are showing some special accommodation for some government agents.

    My favorite places have 2 signs posted generally-
    1) NO hoodies --No exceptions.
    2) Patrons may only wear 1 pair of pants when entering premises.
    both are good old boy Pawn Shops nearby.

    Signet is the parent company of Kays, Zales, Jareds and a few others. I was buying stuff at Jareds once and the lady asked if I wanted to put it on my account. I told her I'd never had an account with Jareds so she looked it up and said "Yes you do, you've had an account at Kays for almost 30 years". If you have an account at one, you have it at all of them.

    ^^^^^^Was there a balance on the acct?^^^^^^

    I know a lot of businesses put out their own “loyalty” cards AKA VISA or MasterCard backed “loyalty” cards. All they’re looking to do is get that 2-3% credit card charge for their own.

    And, very few businesses will let you start a credit acct these days; those which do usually do it with credit card backing.

    this is here, not sure about your area?
    most I believe are required to be armed while on duty, only a few exceptions are made to this as I understand it, like in areas where prisoners are incarcerated, court rooms etc.
    Anyone wanting these additional rights well Atlanta PD is accepting applications right now, a few moths of training and edumacation and you could probally be there.
    All of the above applied to the Department I worked in as well, in Oklahoma. As I have stated before in other threads, LEO's have Legal and Moral Responsibilities and Mandates to respond to threats to the public, other officers, and themselves. I don't know if I would call it a Right. LEO's have certain "considerations" while on duty and off duty as well. A very small number of LEO's abuse those considerations and give a bad name to all the good ones.

    My 2 Cents.

    "There was an indoor gun range in Raleigh N.C. some years ago that closed up over a cop feeling he was above the rules.

    Range rule, all guns have to be in a case when brought into the range. Cop came in with his on his belt. Owner told him
    to go back out and put it in a case. Cop refused. Cop didn't just refuse he started arguing with the owner about why HE
    should be exempt from the rule. Guy closed his range at that moment and never reopened. All it would take was ONE person
    not following the rules and someone getting hurt and the owner, not the cop, would be held to blame.

    Was pretty sad. Guy had a NICE range. Clean. Well kept. Sold guns and accessories at reasonable prices.

    All the Best,
    D. White"




    That is the "MY HOUSE MY RULES" response..

    Still, MY HOUSE MY RULES- at a private range. Officer should have just been an adult and left.
