    Dear Home Depot:

    Tonight I discovered the Home Depot does not support the 2nd Amendment, and the right to bear arms.

    I was shopping with my wife, and 7 year old daughter, picking out paint colors for our new home. We had several items in our cart, and were having our paint shaken when a store associate approached me and asked to speak to me. He asked me to remove my weapon from the store, as Home Depot is a "weapon free zone." I quietly said that I would find another place to shop, and left the store. On my way out the door I checked just to make sure, and sure enough, there was no sign on your door stating no firearms allowed.

    I am an Air Force veteran, and possess a valid license to carry a concealed weapon within the state of Iowa. So I left the Home Depot and drove down to my local Mendards store, where they had no problem with my legal carry of a weapon. You can see from the receipt below that you missed out on a fair chunk of money, and this is just the first trip of many as we renovate our newly purchased home. I will also make sure to let everyone I know, that the Home Depot doesn't support the 2nd Amendment, and somehow believes that criminals will follow their "no weapon zone."

    At least they don't turn customers away who are carrying legally.

    email corporate and ask them if this is a company policy or just the store. make sure you send them the pic you posted. if its not a company policy and just one guy who hates guns he may catch hell for turning away a good sale.

    Once again it all boils down to money...

    They will be fine without your cash...what they lost out on is the security in their stores

    I hate the depot. Partially because I used to work at Lowe's, partially because the depot (at least the ones here) have the poorest educated associates, these people are useless stumps... Just another reason to never go there!
