PetSmart Corporate OK With Open Carry in Wisconsin! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Hello my friends! I received two phone calls from PetSmart Corporate in Arizona, stating that they are not against Open Carry in their stores nor have they been. They fully support State and Federal Law and profusely apologized for the incident occuring in the Onalaska/Lacrosse Wisconsin Store. George of PetSmart also stated that his managers have received training on this subject in order to avoid any further misguided actions.

Please contact Corporate with your thank you and if you patronize their store, please continue.

We appreciate businesses that recognize our inherent right to self defense and PetSmart is just such a store.

I would like to thank you, my friends from Sea to Shining Sea, for standing up with me. Thank you!

Hardballer out!

P.S. I will Post the Audio later today.

Wow....this is GREAT NEWS!

This is incredible! Especially after what you received in the email from Petsmart earlier....IE...no guns allowed!

Looking forward to hearing more!

And to think, the corporate office is in Arizona...didn't know that!

I will reserve thanks until proof is in the kitchen. (have no idea what that means). Its easy to say we are in accordance with the law, but until someone walks through the doors bearing arms and they accept him/her as a law abiding citizen....

I just read your earlier post today and was thinking how I wouldn't shop there until this was cleared up, but lo and behold it got resolved pretty quickly. Good job everyone!

This is good news. I'm buying more Chinchilla food today and was instead going to drive to Janesville, but will give them my business later tonight :)

Naw, no need to rub it in. She thought she was right, she wasn't. Done deal.

Hardballer rocks! Well done! Thank you PetSmart
Thank you Shotgun, I really didn't do much. It was the solidarity of Open Carriers across this nation. I am proud to be in the company of such men and women! Patriots and friends. Thank you all...

Glad to see this worked out well.

I thought it was weird that we never have issues at PetSmart down here, that's what made me wonder if it was something regional.

Solidarity...and...public relations..we win! Now, let this be good practice for a few months down the road when businesses are posting those big bright Orange NO GUNS ALLOWED signs on their store windows & Doors. oNce they begin posting we will need a thread on here so we can fire mission them all.

Keep this in mind in consideration of the upcoming Constitutional Carry debate/vote. If we stand together we can get what we want. If they defy us, let's either recall the sumsab1tchs or vote them out, out, out!!!

That is why it would be nice to get a straight up and down vote on SB93. That way we can figure which Senators we need to run someone against.
