“Firearms Not Permitted” Initiative
With a final push last Friday when another 7 stickers were posted in restaurants and bars serving alcohol in the downtown area, the canvassing of Wilmington, NC, has been completed. We were successful in placing 28 postings and found even more establishments than that who already had a notice posted requesting no firearms be brought into the establishment.
Many thanks to Barbara Brooks for her assistance in contacting the owners and managers of all of the establishments and for providing administrative and motivational support for this initiative.
The thought process for the next initiative is well under way. Stay tuned!
Of course, we are still not shopping at Harris Teeter until Kroger, who owns them, establishes a reasonable gun violence prevention policy for its customers. The current open carry policy is not acceptable and only serves to intimidate customers who are only trying to purchase food products for their families.
Be well, be safe and let your voice be heard.
