Allow legal concealed carry or shell out for armed security.


They are doing us ALL a favor,... IMO the food is garbage.

But, other chain restaurants might follow their lead on this mindset. The monkey see monkey do thing could catch on if McDonald's doesn't get some flak from this.

I have never seen a NO GUN sign in any of the McDonalds here in Northeast Ohio. But as someone said, a business can post if they want. You can either go in or not! :roll:

I was in Sidney Ohio today and stopped at that McDonalds. They have a corporate issued signage on the door that is about 18x18 with statements of interest at the top and middle and all the prohibitive items at the bottom. The "no gun" sign is there and is about 1in.x1in. in size along with the other prohibitive logos. I'm sure it has been sent to all restaurants in their general sign package. Unless the customer actually stops and reads the sign they will blow right pass it opening the door. How many customers actually read door signs going into a business?

I don't read everything but I DO look for the "no guns allowed" portion and then go back to my car if I see it.

I have yet to see a NoGuns sign at a Mickey D's!!

They are popping up all over here in the Akron/Canton/Massillon area. Looks like a franchise decided to change their policy.

We were in Bainbridge Sunday night. The one on Aurora Rd across from where Geauga Lake was is now posted.

And they messed up our order. Posted and can’t get the food right. Not going back there.

(We were on the way to church and didn’t have time to find another place otherwise I would have gone elsewhere then.)

Just finished a whirlwind tour for work and casual inspection of locations in PA, DC, and VA found that all are posted as part of the big corporate sticker thingy.

This is not a franchisee deciding to do their own thing.

And yet today I was in one close to home that had the newish multiple no-no decals on the doors. The gun-in-red-circle-with-diagonal-slash wasn't one of the prohibited items/behaviors. Go figure.

The new McDonalds in Coldwater, Ohio has the new multiple no-no decals on the entrance and it does have a NF symbol! The old McDonalds it replaced never had a NF sign? I wonder if local management even knows about it!

I'm at the one nearest to the Sharonville C&E gun show right now. One set of doors has the multiple "no no" stickers but NOT a no guns decal. The other set of doors are unmarked except for hours of operation, it looks like from here.

Some of the gun show vendors grab chow here, they'd not be amused if this Mickey's gets posted.
