To me those signs have always said "We don't want your business" so I happily take it somewhere else.

Exactly, and if they get caught,in a way , can reflect badly on the "rest" of us who carry, BUT on the flip side, sometimes we "have" to do business with companies who don't respect our right to defend ourselves.....decisions, decisions.

I am forced to do business with a company every week that posts, but I never enter any of their buildings so I carry and leave my piece in the truck when I get out, which isn't long anyway and would be civil trespass if caught, but they would probably not do business with me after that, which could be bad for me.

Otherwise, I normally won't patronize a company that posts and go out of my way when poss. to use another business.
And I have on occasion, though not lately, sent receipts to companies who post, showing the sale they lost for doing so,
For some, the light bulb comes on, for the rest, well the ignorance continues, so spending the time sending receipts and using our NO GUNS=NO MONEY cards is worth it to me, but there needs to be a larger number of us doing it , I feel, for it to be really effective.

....now what to do with the anti-gun Applebee's gift card my sister/brother-in law gave us. :x

I know they gave us the cards because they know I carry and Applebee's post's and we're not really on talkin' terms just to spite me......maybe I'll giv'em to my dogs, their out of chew toys. :wink:

Well, since Applebee's already has the money, they would love to never have that GC turned in; infinite profit percentage for them. Why not put it to good use helping your fellow man? Find a down on their luck homeless person, give them the card and a ride to the nearest Applebee's. The card is not wasted, a hungry person gets to eat, and if you find a really offensive smelling person, the restaurant might suffer a bit.

I thought all Applebee's were posted until I had to go to a retirement dinner at the Springfield Ohio restaurant. I saw no posted sign as I walked in. So I may eat there again. Could this be a franchise?

The Applebee's in Fremont is not posted.

I was more interested in "wasting" their money because of why they did it, but I like your thinking.
