Skip to comments.Gun registry at Cabela's
Posted on 09/25/2022 10:02:52 AM PDT by antidemoncrat
I went to my nearest Cabela's this week to do a little shopping. When I entered the store I noticed a sign at the service counter that essentially said guns entering the store must be registered at the counter. I asked if that was all guns and was told yes. I took out my conceal carry and put it on the country. Thee attendant asked me if the gun had bullets in it (DUH!). I said yes. He then told me I had to take the gun to the gun sales and have them unload it and then bring it back up to register it. I then told him I would just take it back out to my car and leave it. Probably last shopping trip to Cabela's.
how would they know you had one?
Just say “NO”.
I would have just walked out.
that’s an option.
My head hurts.
“how would they know you had one?”
Yeah, nobody has ever shrieked “HE’S GOT A GUN!” at me, I keep it concealed. And in my state, all they can do to you if you’re armed is tell you to leave. If you don’t leave, it’s a Misdemeanor Trespassing charge. I’d have walked out because I’m not spending money at a gun store that doesn’t respect my 2nd Amendment rights, and doesn’t trust me to be armed in their own store. It’s an insult to the consumer.
We were at Cabelas yesterday. Same sign they’ve always had. It said concealed carry was excluded from the requirement as long as it stayed concealed.
Banning? Or tacitly discouraging? Screw ‘em.
Among the other reasons, I really don’t like so much loaded gun handling within the store, and a wide variety of guns being handled by clerks.
When an action is repeated so often, the chance of accidental discharge goes up.
It's about brining in firearms for return, exchange, or repair.
Announcing to the clerk that you're CCW is dumb.
how would they know you had one?
That was my question ... if concealed carry, how would they know?
If confronted (somehow, since carrying concealed) with ‘registering’, I would have taken my gun AND myself out to the car & not gone back in.
Don’t ask don’t tell. Not sure why you would comply except to see what they do.
Its called concealed carry for a reason.
Although, in many circumstances, this abject fear of the Left is understandable -- if not justifiable -- considering that the "leaders" of the "opposition party" have long since been separated from their cajones, preferring the more convenient and far less stressful strategy to "just get along with (i.e., pander to) the Left" rather than meet them with overwhelming force, courage and commitment to principles.
Friend of mine from PA was going on and on how all these white supremacists have guns (she is a democrat) and I said, ‘everyone out here (AZ) has guns. They’re everywhere.
I thought she was going to pass out. LOL!
Lol what state is this in? Where I live, they’d run that Cabelas out of town ASAP.
Law-abiding concealed carry folks will obey the sign, or they will turn around and leave the store.
Armed felons will ignore the sign, do whatever they want.
Same as it ever was.
