    Deputy in uniform not allowed to pick up ring at jewerly store over no guns policy

    https://www.cbs17.com/news/north-car...pon/2055222748

    and in the story there is an update link where the corporate bosses apoligize profusely when they found out a cop got turned away, and the employee no longer works there.

    It sounds like the manager was just following company policy. He may have a great lawsuit for being fired over following policy. Interesting the corporate office said they should have allow uniformed law enforcement. Apparently plainclothes officers will still have to disarm before going in.

    Interesting that some think government agents should have privileges the rest of us don't!

    Where that store manager is concerned, play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    I wear my gun when shopping the jewelry stores; same as with banks and all other sorts of stores and markets. Course, “No Firearms Allowed” signs don’t mean anything in Ga.

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    Governments don’t create human rights; they either recognize them or suppress them

    You can expect 45 minute response time to the store alarm as we will have to run back to our house and pick up our gun. We told the fire department not to bring anything that might be a weapon as well and the will perform a safety check before they respond as well. That shouldn't take more than a hour. You shall get all the respect you want and them some.

    What a tool.

    Let's see if any changes are made in the screening process of applicants of Kay's Jewelers or if new policies and training are implemented. Now, every armed robber in the state (and some in SC) will make that location a major target because they know police will be slow to respond. Wonder who's carrying their insurance policy?

    Well, now we know what's at the opposite end of the spectrum from robbing a doughnut shop.

    ...every kiss my arse, begins with Kay.

    Was this a 21 y.o. anti cop manager, pulling a power play? Was it taking company policy, literally, to the letter? Or has N.C. gone fully psycho?

    I recently had a ring made for my wife and the first time I was in the jewerly store the manager had a .45 stuck in his belt in plain site! I told him I had a CCW and the next thing I knew we were talking about guns instead of the ring I wanted to have made. But this is TX not NC.
