Did you ask "him" if cops are permitted into the business after that incident? If a cop or a number of cops come into that business are they required to unload their duty weapons or leave their duty weapons in their cruiser in order to patronize Ron's Gun Shop? Are cops prohibited by their employer from entering Ron's as a result of one nitwit cop? Citizens likely CC in Ron's Gun Shop and it is also very likely that those firearms are loaded.I realize that it has been some time since the original post was made but I will add this. Today, Feb. 13, 2013, I went to Ron’s Gun Shop to purchase some ammo that was hard to find in my home area. Keeping in mind that I had just this morning read the original post I entered the shop with that statement in mind. As you walk in the door just above you and to the right is a 8.5 X 11 inch sign stating that loaded firearms are not allowed to be carried in this shop. This is not a quote but it does provide the reader with the wishes of the shop owner. Upon cashing out I mentioned this original post and he said that he was aware of it and he further went on to say the reason for this sign is because earlier a police officer came into the shop carrying and his weapon went off firing into the shelf of ammo. From that day on it has been posted and been a shop rule. This sign has not hindered his business or his relationship with his fellow firearms owners. One of the best small gun shops around. Bear
Your thinly veiled threat to complain to the [CT] legislative body or the Ct Business Assoc. is noted. Every property owner has the absolute right to set the terms for entry onto their property. Any business owner that prohibits me from having the ability to lawfully defend myself or my loved ones, if the need arises, is not worthy of my patronage. I too have the absolute right to inform my fellow citizens of a business owners views on lawful self defense.
