Levi's CEO: Please don't bring guns into our stores

Postby gtolbert09 » Wed Nov 30, 2016 12:58 pm

The CEO of Levi's is asking customers and employees not to bring guns into its stores, offices or facilities, even in states where it's legal.

Levi Strauss & Co. President and CEO Chip Bergh writes Wednesday in an open letter posted on LinkedIn that a customer was injured in a Levi's store recently after the customer's own gun inadvertently went off. Bergh says the presence of firearms in stores creates an "unsettling environment" for many of its employees and customers.

He says the San Francisco-based company isn't banning guns, just requesting people not bring them into its places of business. Bergh writes that "trying to enforce a ban could potentially undermine the purpose of the ban itself: safety."

He says the company hopes "responsible gun owners will respect our position."

Well he won't have to worry about me carrying in his stores because I won't be going in any of his stores. :coolgleamA:

I can't believe everything I read in the mainstream media, so I'll just have to rely on whether or not there is the appropriate signage on the door.

Yep.

I had to make that same switch a few years ago, when I saw Levi Strauss on a list of business that donate to anti-gun organizations.

I quit wearing Levi's long ago when I realized just how liberal the company leadership is. Pretty disappointing as I really like some of their jeans.

Fine with me - I most recently bought 2 sets of Wranglers and have another pair arriving today. See ya!
