No longer the ''Best'' Buy in the Buckeye State for gun owners

Several weeks ago, Ohioans For Concealed Carry began receiving reports of new “no-guns” signs appearing at Best Buy locations in Ohio. Initially, it appeared this may have been a result of store managers having been mislead by out-of-state companies who are peddling “compliance kits” that contain “no-guns” signs, and falsely claiming that state law requires them to be posted. In fact, in at least one Best Buy store, the sign that is posted was obtained from one of these companies, G-Neil.

As additional reports of these postings came I, we educated those making the reports about how these out-of-state companies have been falsely claiming signs are required, and encouraged them to contact Best Buy’s corporate headquarters in Minnesota about the issue.

Unfortunately, it now appears that Best Buy has joined the list of business ban hypocrites - corporations whose policy seems to suggest that they believe Ohioans are less likely to be responsible with concealed firearms than their customers in other states.

Thank you for contacting Best Buy about our Mentor store. I'm Eric with Customer Care.

We're sorry to hear about your disappointment in not being able to carry a concealed weapon into the store. Best Buy does have a corporate policy to ban the carrying of concealed weapons into stores where the law allows.

Thank you for sharing your comments with Best Buy. Please don't hesitate to contact us with additional questions or concerns.

Best wishes from Best Buy,

Eric and the Customer Care Team
OFCC can report that Best Buy stores are NOT posted in Tennessee, although the law does provide that option for private businesses. We are currently double-checking in Indiana and elsewhere, but clearly it appears Best Buy has chosen to discriminate against their Buckeye customers in a way that they do not do to Volunteers or Hoosiers.

*UPDATE: Readers from Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia have confirmed that signs are not posted in Best Buy outlets in those states, just as they are not posted in Tennessee. Why is Best Buy discriminating against Ohioans in this offensive manner?

Question. If one is carrying, concealed, how would the store know that you are? If they, somehow, find that you are carrying, what's the worst they can do? Ask you to leave? Big deal! :roll:
