Champaign Ford City and the nearby Worden Martin Nissan have taken down their “NO GUNS” signage!
The two high-profile car dealerships in Champaign join hundreds of other businesses who have taken down “NO GUNS” signs that alienate over 1.8 million registered gun owners in Illinois. Other businesses taking down the signs include Walmart, bank, gas station and retail chains, and plenty of other businesses.
The move follows a number of instances of gun owners walking away from purchases because of the dealerships’ signage at their entrances.
GSL’s John Boch stopped by Champaign Ford City on Friday, February 6th to ask for a comment from management. A promised return phone call was never received.
Nevertheless, we salute the two Worden Martin dealerships pulling down signs that do nothing to stop bad guys from committing violent crimes, but do legally prohibit card-carrying good guys from entering an establishment.
In fact, the signs attract violent criminals but not everyone has made that connection.
