Fix Bayonets! Here is what I wrote! [i]On your website you stated that houses with no firearms in them are safer. Where do you get your facts, because they are wrong. Your stance on firearms just cost you a customer. [/i]

Corporate Lowes don't give a rats arse what you think. Call the locale Lowes and let the manager know, especially those rural, small town ones located in consevative areas, that you'll pickit their store unles they do something to get "Mr. Lowe" to change his mind. I kinda of know the Assistant Manager at the one near me and will mention to him the next time I'm there, that as much as I like the place I would be more willing to spend time and money there if he would have a word with his bosses.

[i]LOWES REPLY TO MY E-MAIL[/i]
RE: {Case#177-799} Lowes: (Lowes.Com Feedback) Dear Valued Lowe's Customer, Thank you for your recent email regarding Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse The following addresses concerns expressed by yourself and the NRA about certain firearm safety-related content on Lowe's web site and the web site of our non-profit home safety organization, Lowe's Home Safety Council. Lowe's is a home improvement retailer, and it is certainly not our intent to take a public policy position on the overall issue of Second Amendment rights in the U.S. The information in question was provided to Lowe's by a third party, the Consumer Federation of America, who had obtained it from Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy. We understand that certain elements of that information may be viewed as being subjective; therefore, it has been removed from our web site. Frankly, a more careful reading of that information by our staff, before it was posted, may have eliminated this issue before it occurred. As the world's second largest home improvement retailer, Lowe's sells many of the products used to make America's homes a safer place to live. For that reason, we're very proud of our efforts to promote home safety awareness among our customers and the public at large. However, as it relates to firearms, Lowe's position is to simply encourage the safe storage of firearms in and around the home - period. Thanks again for making us aware of your thoughts on this issue. We certainly regret any confusion the information on our web site may have caused. If you would like to discuss this issue further with a staff member of the NRA, Bill Parkerson- Director of Research and Information can be reached at (703)267-1187. Sincerely, Lowe's Customer Care Lowe's Home Improvement
