Our inquiry went to Kay Jewelers, which has over 900 locations of the 1300+ locations operated by Sterling Jewelers. Kay’s response was clear:
“Even though many states have laws permitting residents to carry concealed weapons and firearms, private employers have the right to ban weapons and prohibit persons with weapons from entering the premises. For the safety and security of our customers and store employees Kay has made the decision to ban weapons and anyone possessing them from entering the store.”
We believe jewelery stores are a proven target for criminals and to disarm law abiding customers is irresponsible, offensive and dangerous.
But don’t take our word for it…just google it:
