Mayville market place the grocery store in Mayville put up a NO Weapons sign in the last week or so.
I asked the Manager about the sign today.   He said Corp asked them to or someone asked the to put the sign up.
I told him I was surprised a business would do that because of the liability they assume when the sign goes up.
He was not happy I mentioned liability.
Just thought i would let people know about the change.
Be sure to mention the sign when you are shopping there.

The home of MEC?  Seems as if spreading the word might impact the grocery sales.

My reason for starting this thread.

MEC service is great.   I can go to their service center and get anything i need for reloader.  They are good people.

I do safety and risk consulting (OSHA stuff and similar).  Part of that work is company policy review and development. I'm always amazed at how many businesses have written employee policies that ban weapons on site.  It seems like the lawyers always recommend these policies and I'm not sure how much experience they have with this particular law.  

I always laugh at the HR manuals that forbid bringing bombs to work.  As if that policy means anything. "Oh, sorry. I came to blow this place up, but I really don't want to get that third strike in my HR file, so I won't bring the bomb in."

For employees or customers?

I've turned away vendor accounts for my business because the 'contracts' specified no weapons carried by me or my employees, not even in vehicles brought to the work site. Pick & Save, fuck them. They still call me when the local store has an emergency, and I always refuse the job, and tell them exactly why, too. I always wondered if that weapons ban included long pointy screwdrivers and hammers too.... I've asked, and got a snarky reply every time. The call is from the 414 area code, so I guess that explains it.

Pick & Save was the only customer to give me a policy guide that forbade weapons by contractors in writing, but it has no "no weapons" signs posted at the local stores for customers, and the only Piggly Wiggly in my AO has no signs either, and I've never been given any bullshit "policy" guides by them.

Wobbly Hog would be a good name for a BBQ joint.

I was a lead repairman where I worked ( since retired).  My last stupidvisor was a young women.  One day she was complaining about the knife I had setting out because it was a weapon.   I proceeded to take tools out of my tool chest showing all the weapons I had in the tool chest
screw drivers for stabbing, hammer for smashing, pliers for squeezing, and  10mm sockets for throwing.  She walked away shaking her head.  The subject of tools never came up while was working there again.

I just walk on by the signs and don't even look anymore. Weapons are concealed, right. Been in the bank numerous times, nothing. Police station nothing thought they might notice but nope. Mall, stores, bars and restaurants nothing. Stop worrying about stupid stuff.

In Wisconsin we fought for the right to carry concealed and for open carry.   WE had lost those because people did not think they were important.
Now that we have these rights you are saying not to fight or challenge people when they want to take these rights away again.

Fighting for our rights is important  If you do not understand why, then you will be one of the reasons we will loose them again.

Yep. As if there's a guy fucked up in the head enough to be thinking of shooting up his workplace going "Damnit, I would so shoot Debbie in shipping if it weren't for that employee handbook I signed."

Luckily I work from home now, so firearms are not only allowed but encouraged in my place of work.

We need a short handout detailing the liability risks to businesses that post no weapons signs. Be handy to leave with the manager.

I like this idea.


Last line should be "I will return as a customer if the No Weapons sign is removed.
