enjoy your holiday with family and friends...
see the last sentence in the first paragraph of my signature block
My older GP doc works in a facility where the facility is run in a tyrannical fashion by an narrowly focused office manager who 'has always done it this way' Clara Barton era mentality. They have no phone, no weapons, no firearms, no food\drink posted all posted on a 8.5x11 sheet on the sign in window... not on the door ~ sigh! I open holster there but there might be a time or two when during an ad hoc exam, a bug pops into the exam equation...a smile just crosses his face and he continues with the exam...
When we meet, the 30-45 minutes are spent discussing a myriad of topics, from my health to general social concerns, to a topic he brought up ~ prepping!!
address your concerns to the doc as well as the office manager. One hopes the doc sees your note... just saying.
Try carrying in there. make them ask you to leave. You might be surprised
Go back. See the manager. Tell him what I call the 4. His sign, your permit, sidearm and back as you leave. Tell him you will make it a point to advise all you know to not visit his place and discourage all and any you discuss local restaurants with not to go there.
Tell him you will post it to several local gun related websites advising all to not go there and you will check back every month or 2 to see if that policy is in effect and sign is up. If he takes it down you will encourage all to go there, but if its up its a no go place for lots of locals.
I did that with an Applebys in Ga. I posted a link to the corporate customer service email and from what I saw they got about 1500 emails in the next 3 days or so. The sign was down about 6 months later. I commended the manager and he advised he was surprised when he got the call to take it down. He was also pleased as he hinted he carried routinely himself.
Melvin, you need to go by that place and go inside and advise management you will not be a customer of theirs because of their sign. Let me know when you do and I will drop by a couple days later.
Maybe we can get a couple more to go and among us make some type of an impression on the economic validity of their sign.
As to the M&G, you organize the first one and I will be there (clear date with me first), most likely along with wife. She would not be real conducive to me getting it started the first or 2nd time but after than I can do some also. Maybe a revolving set up among the attendees?
Work for you?
