Here is a little story of my Wednesday Home Depot shopping.
Went to Home Depot, where I go at least once a week. As I'm entering there stand 2 greeters. I know most of them and usually chat for a moment. This time there was a short older guy with a beard. Never seen him before.
He looks at me and says cover that up! I asked what, this? (my 1911) Why? He said because the sign says so. I hadn't seen a sign there and always open carried in there so I turned around and went out and looked. I walked back in and said 'well it says I can't bring my dog in here and that's all I see". So he goes out and looks and says they must have taken the sign down. I very sarcastically said 'yea, I guess they did!' But, he says, cover it up anyway.
I have reached my limit on BS so I asked him if he was making store policy. He was quick to say no, but added that some people got nervous when they saw guns. I then explained that we live in AZ and if folks got nervous when they see guns they needed to get back to CA ASAP. Enough already!
Reminded me of that old song, Stuck in the middle. "There's clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right"
After that, all went well.

Had this happen to my 23 yr. old son in Mississippi at Cracker Barrel by the manager except there is no sign and they knew it. They said there policy say if a customer complains they have to ask you to remove the gun. They threaten to call the police and since it was his first time to be challenged they had words but he put the gun back in the car. He wasn't sure of the law if he was right or wrong when ask to put it up or leave a business. I believe if there's no sign they don't have a leg to stand on. Call the police.
