What would happen if we boycotted "Gun Free Zones", other than not being able to
1. sit at a bar?
2. Avoid Jury Duty!

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.
AwPunch, what would happen if you boycotted those places???
We know where they are.
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.
Depends on the state.
correct, not sure OP realizes it though.
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.
Thanks MCoupe. Yep, I know it depends on State and even at times the % of alcohol to food sold.
I'm in Florida and it can get quite confusing trying to figure where it's OK and where it's not when it comes to restaurants and bars and combinations and especially outdoor locations.
But for me that means I can't 1. Sit at a bar.
hmmm...pretty much the only "Gun free zones" in Indiana are casinos, past TSA at the airport, courthouses, jails, schools where I'm not authorized to carry, & federal property, it doesn't make much difference to me.
I don't go to casinos or schools that don't authorize me to carry, & only go to courthouses, jails, the airport, & federal property when the gov't tells me I need to.
We're good at churches, bars, parks, banks, polling places (usually), sporting events, hospitals, etc.
I almost never see "no guns" signs anyway.
I too am in the difficult position of working for a company with a no weapons policy, even knives. I deliver pizza and boy would I love to carry, especially to a certain few locations I have to go to.
In Montana I boycott every business that's not a state mandated killing zone.
At the bank I use the drive through.
Government buildings I avoid like the plague.
Anyways, there's only a few anti gun businesses here, Town Pump, Costco, Town Pump, Auto Zone and did I mention town pump?? That state owned gas station is a piece of work! Was open carrying with my friend during a day driving in the mountains. We stop at one of their gas stations in a small, very very small ranch town. No signs posted but we were informed we could not carry in their stores.
Though since Starbucks started their natural policy on guns my family has been giving them lots of business!

Gun free zones are about like smoke free zones. They are most everywhere now it seems. In NYC and some places in CA , I imagine the two zones are the same. Boycotting gun free zones will pretty much limit you to being on your own property before long. We are only permitted 2nd rights where they approve our rights exist. Sounds a little like being infringed upon to me.
I wonder how many licensed gun holders have ever had an alcoholic drink while they carried? I would hope it happens less often than licensed drivers drink while driving. A drunk with a gun scares me more than a drunk behind the wheel of a car. Thinking about that, why don't we ever see no booze signs on cars? Surely that sign would stop all DWI accidents or killings. I guess they don't do that because they have seen gun free zone signs don't stop killings with guns anymore than it would stop killings by automobiles. Guns and cars kill because neither can read the signs or laws.
Never heard anything about Starbucks in years past so I'm assuming you meant neutral?
