COSTCO IN RIVERDALE

This is where to post the names of places to boycott because they have anti-gun, anti-freedom stances or policies. Any posts advocating boycotts must explain the reasons for the boycotts including, if possible, documentary proof, such as links to business web sites or news articles.

Maybe I'm being a bit sensitive, but I'm a bit put off by the officer's suggestion that you should cover your weapon. Maybe the officer thought they were providing some friendly help, but from what I understand, there is no duty to conceal in Utah, right? In fact, I've read it over and over on the OC threads that the CFP provides the right to carry open loaded as well...

It was how casually I was approach and that the suggestion was in fact a suggestion, maybe he knew about costcos stupid policy or maybe he deduced from the covering garment and the IWB holster that OC was not I going for.

I felt more like "hay buddy your fly is open" then "hay dummy you aint allowed to flash that thing."

I plan on continuing to conceal carry @ Costco. They can stick it.

Until they provide a personal bodyguard to protect me and mine, I will follow my legal right to conceal.

I have had jury duty notices before, they never pick me. They do always seem to pick the crazies.

(/hijack)

I will continue to shop at costco, and not tell them I carry.

I was thinking about the whole boycotting thing; I would like to participate, but oft times it simply isnt feasible for me. So I carry silently and continue on with my life.

Ask them if they have to abide by the AWD act (Americans with Disabilities Act). If they do then they are a place of public accommodation AFAIK. (IANAL and all that)

They have always been anti gun. Thanks OP for posting your story I would make sure to post the store on friendorfoe.us
People say I should not carry because it's not the Wild West. I say I carry because its much worse. Only 3 people died at the at the O.K. Corral and its a part of our nations history. If 3 people died in a 30 sec shootout today It might not make the news.

There's nothing in the law that says public accommodations can't ban firearms. There's also nothing in the law that says they can, so it falls back on ordinary private property and contract law. In the case of Costco, they have a private property owner's right to ask you to leave for virtually any reason (except for being a member of a protected class -- being a public accommodation does provide that), plus they also have the contractual right to cancel your membership for not following their rules.

Costco is not stupid: They make you pay a fee, ban law abiding citizens/customers the means of personal protection, turn them into targets...But don't be dismayed....
They also sell Caskets at membership prices.

The problem is they come in packs of seven but shooters kill in packs of eight.

The point was it removes the "private membership club" excuse.
