hhgregg – “…does not believe firearms are appropriate in (their) stores.”
“Does hhgregg prohibit firearms in its stores?”
Like many others, this is a company that answered our question with a bit of philosophy:
Thank you for your e-mail. Our company respects an individual’s right to bear arms, but does not believe firearms are appropriate in our stores.”
In a nifty little bob-and-weave, they never really answered our very simple question, merely eluded to a “belief.” So they don’t believe firearms are appropriate, but what is their POLICY? They say they respect your right to bear arms, just as long as THEY don’t have to actually respect it with their actions?
WTF? Do you prohibit firearms or not?
We asked a follow-up to put them on the spot and make them own their policy.
2ACheck follow up:
“Oh. Will a customer be asked to leave if they are seen to be in lawful possession of a holstered firearm inside your store?“
That seemed like an even easier question for them to answer, and here’s what we received in response:
We regret we have no further comment.”
We interpret their statements to be a cowardly admission that they ban guns but don’t want to draw negative attention for it. BOYCOTT on! As always, you must ultimately decide for yourself if a company deserves your business or not.
