Tallmadge businesses advised to post discriminatory signs

The following was submitted to www.ohioccw.org by an OFCC supporter.

I was at Henry Bierce Co. in Tallmadge - they are a building supply store. I noticed they had a ''NO GUNS'' sign. I had some ''No GUNS-No MONEY'' cards in my wallet, so I gave one to the very nice lady in the office. She indicated that some organization in Tallmadge has told merchants that they ''should'' post the signs.

She seemed shocked when she asked ''we will lose your business?'' - to which I answered ''Yes, I am afraid so''. I went on to tell her we have been fighting for this for 10 years - and with us it is a matter of freedom and fairness. She knew it had been a long fight and that Ohio was one of the few states left with no CCW law.

She indicated that guns scare her, and why does anyone need to carry? I reminded her of the hurdles to get a license, the results in other states, and the fact that the bad guys already carry.

She was very nice, and polite (as was I) and she indicated she would speak to the owners, who were out of town.
