    I boycott as much as possible. Haven't been to Ikea in years due to their 30.06 sign. Sometimes you don't have a choice, like the post office, courts, or polling location.

    I already try to support the business I know who support gun rights. There's a diner near me who has a CCW welcome sign on the door, and I eat there more than the other places in town due to it. I would love to see a list of businesses that openly support gun rights.

    Wait, are we saying that Gun Free Zones include bars? That is not correct.

    I'd lose my job pretty quickly, I reckon.

    For those of us who work in a "gun free zone", it's a difficult line to walk.
