I think gun owners need to be respectful of others' opinions. To me that's just common civility. Of course, if you really can't bear to eat a tough steak and and a fried onion (or whatever the h3ll those godawful chains serve) without a gun on you, you'll vote with your feet, as noted. You can go home, make yourself a better, juicier, bloodier steak, and eat it surrounded by your entire arsenal, if you wish. :D


I agree. I have no problem with a business deciding their rules. I DO have a problem with the businesses or owners actively funding groups trying to completely take away my rights to own guns.

If I personally owned a business front I would ask people to not open carry.

This was more about the patron being a police officer, not an individual using their right to freedom of expression, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Personally I'm going to do what I feel is in my best interest.

Sounds like an idiot customer found her an idiot manager in this case.

I don't pay any attention to signs unless it is an actually illegal place to carry.
Concealed is concealed....
Oops didn't notice that opinion already posted

It will also get you "legally" arrested in some places.


Did you notice
I said "actually illegal". I don't carry there.
There are few places that are actually illegal to carry In Missouri. Courthouse,post office ,busses trains police station.
In Missouri you can plaster the place with no gun signs , but they don't carry any weight.
All they can do is ask you to leave, and you would be really stupid not to do so.
Also not so smart in letting someone notice your gun to start with.

You do realize you're GIVING them all that money for NO SERVICE if you do that.. they'd love for everyone to throw away the gift cards that have already been paid for!

It's not a gift card it's a rewards card. You pay 25 dollars for it and they take 25 off your first purchase. We used it to cut in line mostly. If there is a wait you show your card and go to the top of the list. There are also discounts on certain days stuff like that . Nothing pre paid except buying the card and that comes back to you on your first use.

ah, OK... I probably would have an issue as a customer if I was standing there waiting and others would get bumped to the top of the list.. I'd probably help them with their problem of too many customers and leave.
