One goal of this blog is to embrace and promote those products or businesses that support the rights guaranteed under the constitution…including the Second Amendment.
I want to spotlight companies that welcome concealed carry permit holders, as well as those products that encourage security, promote constitutional values, and are, whenever possible, MADE in America!
In Ohio, for instance, the Kroger corporation made a point of letting shoppers know that they welcomed lawful gun owners who carried. Conversely, Panera Bread made it known that they did NOT want permit holders to carry their concealed weapons on the premises (even though they would be CONCEALED.)
I’m not a big fan of boycotts but I am a big fan of spending my money wisely. I made up my mind several years ago that, as much as I loved Panera, I had no desire to spend my hard-won dollars with someone who, under the right circumstances, would deny me my constitutional rights. More pragmatically, I have no desire to hang out in a place where criminals believe no one is armed. If I am a robber, where am I going to commit a crime…in a store that welcomes gun owners or in one that says “hey, we’re a gun free establishment”??? Well, that’s a no-brainer!
So, part of the role of “Safe Haven” is to make you aware of those places that truly have the potential to be “safe havens.” And I’m not just talking about pro-gun establishments, but also those that embrace freedom and ALL our constitutional liberties (and obligations). I also want to hear American success stories — businesses and individuals who have parlayed freedom into a professional success story that will inspire and uplift us all.
There is much to celebrate in this great country of ours; so many people who are embracing the benefits of liberty while happily shouldering its responsibilities. Safe Haven wants to shine a light on all those who work hard, stand up for what’s right, and fight for the freedoms guaranteed by our founding fathers. Please help us in this mission by making us aware of: businesses that honor our second amendment, individuals with a great American story, and products or services that are made in the USA!!

Thank you and have a safe and FUN Independence Day (and remember to give thanks for our men and women in uniform…be it military, law enforcement or fire!)
