Store Ignores Obvious Signs, Goes Overboard With Its Anti-Gun Policy
The Daily Caller 20 hours ago
A furniture store in Takoma Park, Maryland that calls itself a “Weapons Free Environment” took its policy a bit too far on Independence Day.
That’s when a loss prevention officer at IKEA approached Alan Goldberg, who carried a visible, holstered firearm into the store, telling him he would have to leave the premises or place the weapon in his vehicle, according to NBC Washington.
The request caught Goldberg off guard: he is Takoma Park’s chief of police, and he was in uniform during his visit.
Goldberg was at the IKEA — a popular furniture store founded in Sweden — to shop with his college-bound daughter after having spent the morning working a July Fourth parade. He was also scheduled to work a fireworks display scheduled for later in the evening.
But none of that mattered to the store’s loss prevention officer, who approached Goldberg to inform him of IKEA’s zero-tolerance gun policy.
“He says we have a no firearms policy, and you’re either going to have to leave or you can lock your gun in the car,” Goldberg told NBC Washington.
The 35-year law enforcement veteran said he has never been asked to part with his service weapon before.
“It isn’t the most prudent thing to do to walk around the store in uniform with an empty holster,” Goldberg told the station.“And I am not going to lock my gun in a commercial parking lot, with people watching me put it in there. That’s just ludicrous.”
Goldberg parked his shopping cart and left the store, but not before asking to view IKEA’s written policy. Management did not provide it at the time but released a statement to NBC Washington on Monday.
“We regret that there was a misunderstanding of our weapon policy in our College Park Store,” IKEA said in a statement.“Our weapon policy does not apply to law enforcement officers. We are taking steps to ensure that this is clear for all our co-workers.”
While Goldberg was angry enough over IKEA’s request on Friday to post about it on Facebook, he said he was satisfied by the store’s response on Monday.

Education is "key" of course. Who would dare disagree with that. Fortunately, we can't have a society where everyone is a Phd, where everyone is a doctor, engineer, architect, scientist, etc. Some, through circumstances of birth, I.Q., access to higher education, will hold less demanding but ESSENTIAL jobs - labourers, service industry workers, etc. All I'm saying is, I don't think, as in Cuba, everyone from labourer to CEO to doctor should earn the same wages. No, but everyone should earn a living wage, a comfortable wage where all employees are treated with "fairness". A CEO who does not own the company should not receive a 25% yearly increase in pay plus plus plus while the employee gets by on a 2% annual increase. That is fairness. Fairness is also a departing executive receiving huge departing bonuses whilst employees get laid off.
Yes, in rare cases, as big companies or most of them are not headed by their founders, the employer was there ahead of the employee. So? How does that minimize the employee's contribution?
"All I'm saying is, I don't think, as in Cuba, everyone from labourer to CEO to doctor should earn the same wages." But how much do the Politicos make in Cuba? Yep, they have their Western trained Doctors while the rest of them get doctors who got their degrees in high school!
Oh, and just who decides what fair is?
Oh, I had a friend whose business went under two years ago. The last two years of his business he put no money into his business but bought new cars, made improvements to his house, so he declared his business bankrupt and retired. He had only a dozen workers but you see to be upset with just the CEOs of big businesses!!!!

Obama'a and his administration's response are based entirely on legislation adopted and signed by GWB in 2008. Yes, the House and Senate were democrat, but why did not Bush veto it? Also, and I've said so yesterday, it was a good bill and GWB should get credit for signing it.

Now, the influx from Central America and Mexico has become untenable. Granted, Obama is dithering a lot on this thing, and his refusal to visit the border area is inexcusable. But, tell me, tell us,what would any other president do seeing as once on U.S.land, every illegal has a right to stay until legally deported? Do you want Obama to break the law?

I don't personally wish that kind of mess on ANY country.

In Cuba, 99% of the population earns a whopping $18 per month. The other 1%, politicos and other bastards, earn more and spend a lot of their time in Florida where they own villas - did you know that? I can't prove it with evidence, I just happen to know it, and believe me it's true.

Anyhow, I gave Cuba as an example of "equality" not being "equal" at all and looney bin at best. Sure, CEOs and higher brass should earn more than ordinary employees - normal. But not exaggeratingly (sic) so. And,as I said, those big shots do not own, have not founded those companies. GE, Boeing, GM, Ford, Chrysler, Apple, the big banks, pharmaceuticals, etc, are you telling me their owners are running them?

Citing your friend as example is exactly what I meant. Getting rich, living above his means at the expense of his workers, whose only fault was diligently working for him. Yes,I am upset at big companies that set their employees adrift - when not laying them off and exporting their jobs to China or Mexico. GM's recall woes come to mind. Who made those mistakes? The workers? Nope. The leaders of the company, those liars who didn't care their clients were at risk?- forget the key chain, Rogue and who knows, as people buy fewer GM products - who can blame them?- yes, who knows how many workers will be laid off?

New auto workers are being hired at a lower wage than the actual ones. Is that fair? Are new head office staff and executives and directors coming on for less pay?

Jock-Quez, again and again you show your ignorance? Educate your sorry self? Jobs at fast food joints were not meant to be permanent, except for the supervisors? Now it shows that you are a Canadian bleeding heart lieberal? Education in the United States is free for primary and secondary students. Anyone with a high school education can find a job. Within the convifines of a starter job, anyone can make themselves indespensable, by doing a good job. Some companies will pay for your education, which not only helps the employer but helps the employee to do a better job. Duh,Jockquez you should avail yourself of the opportunity.....

Again, the day before I graduated flight school a family friend, who was a colonel, pinned my warrant officer bar on my collar and as he did so he said to me, "Remember, you will always have more RESPONSIBILITY than authority".

No, the store should NOT have fired that employee. Based on your criteria for firing employees and on your incessant insipid rants on this thread, it's obvious you would have been fired more than once in your entire career. He was not, and I assume you were not. Should you have been?

I also get the impression you're some kind of ER doctor. If so, shame on you.
