    That sucks. Part of me says "Damn corporate mall jackasses" and part of me says "Damn open carry idiots".
    Biggest part of me says that this isn't good for the gun folks.

    Yup. Our long gun open carry antics caused a business that supported us despite have a more liberal customer base to move against us (Starbucks). Now no CHL in this mall. I don't see this stuff as helping us.

    I've yet to see a 30.06 sign at a Starbucks. All that company asked was that they not be made the center of the open carry debate. I respect that, and don't believe that request caused them to be "against us" in any way.

    This is something that has to be considered in the campaign for open carry...

    Hmm. I thought that they asked that firearms not be brought to their stores, but they haven't necessarily posted them. I'll have to look it up. I hope you are right. I can completely understand them not wanting to be used in a political battle.
