Grassroots action at work: Another ''no-guns'' sign comes down

Submitted by: Robert H.

I was just walking in the door at the Best Buy on Monroe Street, when I noticed the dreaded "red circle with slash on handgun". I asked the greeter at the door about the sign, as it was worded vaguely about who was allowed to bring a pistol in. He cheerfully advised me that it meant law enforcement only were allowed in with handguns. I told him I would be back when the sign came down, and returned to my car. When I got home, I called Best Buy and asked to speak to the manager. I wish I had taken notes, because I do not remember the name of the pleasant lady that quickly informed me that Best Buy did not post the sign and was unaware of it, and that the sign would be pulled immediately. I thanked her, got into my car, and by the time I got back to the store, the sign was gone.

OFCC has been receiving mixed reports about Best Buy stores being posted with “no-guns” signs in recent days. There is some indication that this problem is a result of confusion over the “Compliance Kits” being sent out to Ohio businesses from out-of-state companies which imply the law requires them to hang a sign.
