Levi's says leave the guns at home

Saying that "a safe environment to work and shop is a top priority,'' the CEO of Levi Strauss & Co. is requesting that gun owners leave their weapons at home when in the company's offices, facilities or stores.

In a letter posted on LinkedIn, Chip Bergh recounted how a Levi's customer recently got hurt when a gun the shopper was carrying accidentally fired.

"So, while we understand the heartfelt and strongly held opinions on both sides of the gun debate,'' Bergh said, "it is with the safety and security of our employees and customers in mind that we respectfully ask people not to bring firearms into our stores, offices or facilities, even in states where it's permitted by law.''

This seems to come under the new category of "False News". -Ed.]
