There is a company in Viroqua (the nearest "larger" town) that sells
I suppose that 45 minutes had passed and we had no return call from Anna. About this time we walked back up to the front of the closed business to take another look at a
I was surprised that I hadn't noticed it before. It isn't in a great spot to be noticed, actually. Near the door handle would make more sense to me... (According to Wisconsin law the sign has to be placed in a prominent location with a reasonable expectation of being seen. This one fails in that regard. It must also be located at the entrance to a property if the entire premises bans firearms. Another fail for this sign and property. There was no sign placed at the entrance to the property in a location where it could be reasonably expected to be seen. There were no other signs at all.)
I asked the Missus to call Anna back and let her know that she could disregard the first voice message. I asked her to let Anna know that I wasn't interested in spending money with a company that publicly states that my Second Amendment rights mean nothing to them.

On the way home we stopped at Cabela's in Prairie. They weren't busy at all. It was the same way in April when we were in South Dakota. No one was busy. I realized that there hadn't been much traffic out on the highway either. With gas at nearly $4 per gallon and the cost of groceries and everything else going sky high, I'm guessing that people are staying home. Kinda puts a dent in the meme being put forth by the obamanites that the economy is improving and all is going to be fine.
One thing that I did notice at Cabela's was that they had very few new handguns but a SHIT TON of pre-owned handguns. More used guns than I had ever seen in that store. And a couple of women looking to buy handguns. There are usually a bunch of people standing at the display cases looking, handling, and buying... Like I said, it was dead in there.
