I've been itching to get to the bottom of this BB&T issue. Today, I went to the main branch in town (unarmed) and sat down with the manager to discuss the firearms policy. It started with, "Hi, my name is John, and I'm a member of a grassroots lobbying group called Georgia Carry. I'd like to discuss your firearms policy." He listened to what I had to say. About two minutes into my spiel on gun laws and safety, he pulled out a pad of paper and began writing notes on what I was saying. Then I pulled out the big gun (figuratively) and handed him the printout from the VCDL website pertaining to the man who foiled a bank robbery by OC (link to thread here is http://www.georgiapacking.org/forum/vie ... light=vcdl ) That really got his attention, and he stated he would make a phone call to their corporate office in order to get me the information I wanted pertaining to their gun ban. I handed him a "No guns = no money" card with my name and contact info written on the back and thanked him for his time. About three hours later, I received a phone call from the same gentleman, and he stated that he could not change the corporate policy and that it was in effect due to the fact that BB&T operates in multiple states, many of which are not as gun friendly as GA. He then went on to state that if I (or any other GFL holder) wished to carry concealed, that this would not be a problem. His reasoning for banning open carry was "with the security issues in a bank, the only people we allow to carry openly are uniformed security or police officers." While this is not what I wanted to hear, I understand the corporate reasoning behind this (don't want to scare the sheeple out of the bank when they see someone without a badge with a gun). Anyway, I think I had a fairly productive afternoon with this and hopefully it'll find its way up the chain of command and something will be done about it. I plan on following up this meeting with a personal letter to the manager and another to the corporate office, with the details (of course I was taking notes and using a digital voice recorder! do I look stupid?) of the meeting. GRASSROOTS ACTIVISM FTW!
