Guns.com is reporting that Bass Pro Shops has posted their official policy on concealed carry on the Internet for all the world to see. I can’t find it on the Bass Pro website, but Guns.com has it posted up and you can give it a read here (PDF).
Bass Pro Shops got some bad customer reaction to the article that Guns.com wrote a little while back (I mentioned it here and here) that brought into question Bass Pro Shops’ respect for people’s rights to carry firearms for personal protection while inside their stores.
A bunch of people were really upset and gave Bass Pro an ear-full on the social media nets. Bass Pro Shops did the right thing by recognizing how upset their customers were and they moved very quickly to try to bring clarity to the situation. As I stated in my earlier writings, Bass Pro Shops is definitely pro-Second Amendment and does not wish to deny people the legal right to carry firearms for their own protection while in their stores. Bass Pro Shops does not require people to check their firearms that they are legally carrying for personal defense while in their stores.
