    I too am interested in CB's official response back. Although a reminder folks...if we aren't careful with those OC vs CC arguments a mod is probably going to whack the thread eventually...which would be a real shame if it happened before we hear back from CB...

    Any Cracker Barrel we have tried had bad food anyway. We just laugh when we see their signs now.

    I'm interested in the response also.

    I find it even more interesting though that one manager tells one customer in one store that the corporate policy is no guns and a majority of the people that respond in the thread take it as gospel and start to boycott the chain without any verification of any such restriction BUT let one cop tell someone that some action gun related is illegal and no one believes the cop till the statute is produced verified, tried, and convicted.

    Why not continue to patronize until the corporate office responds?

    I don't eat at Cracker Barrel due to some of their prior corporate policies so this wont affect me anyway. It just gives me yet another reason to never eat there. I'll stick to Golden Corral when I want large quantities of yum.

    Ours isn't posted. Unless they did it in the last few days. Wondering if you are getting a line that this was a corporate decision, or not.

    Pls POST the reply, because if they are now posting, I'll quit going there or stop at any when I"m traveling.

    Whether I was open carrying or concealed carrying is an irrelevant point. I was acting within the laws of the state of Virginia. The point is that I was told the policy was NO firearms allowed.

    I did not receive a reply today. Hopefully I will hear from them tomorrow. I will post their reply when I get it.

    I'm with Tangle on this one. The squeeky wheel gets the grease, only I'm not so sure I want grease.

    On a side note, whenever you are sending emails or letters on behalf of gun owners, please use your spell check and proof read several times before sending it off.

    Just because it is your "right" to do something, does not always mean it is the smart thing to do.

    I was on duty yesterday, in a room full of police officers. None noticed that I was carrying 3 handguns - concealed.

    Grey man...stealth mode...whatever you call it - concealed means concealed. JMHO.

    I proof read it and so did my wife, and spell check was used several times while writing it.

    I would said, "If you are asking me to leave because of a policy that I would have had no way to know about and you didn't tell me until this point, then I am not obligated to pay for a meal that I have not had the opportunity to complete uninterrupted." If the manager said yes, I'd have gathered my belongings and family and proceeded to leave and not return. If I had already ordered and the food had not come out yet, then too bad for them. If my food had come out and I had not had a chance to finish my meal, I'd still would have left without paying. If they're asking me to leave before I have consumed my meal, then I'm not paying for it. They should have told me when I entered and ordered or should have had a sign posted. I would be willing to finish my meal and pay for it before I left, but they would have to tolerate the presence of my firearm until that point.

    Could you explain what "Law carriers of guns"you referred to in your letter are? I've never heard of it put this way and was curious.

    Then why do cops and military personnel carry openly, not concealed?

    [QUOTE=Tangle;1895692]Maybe. It would appear that the OP was open carrying or else how did they know he had it? Second there was evidence posted that CB prohibits OC but makes no mention of concealed carry. Here's my problem. I go to my Regions bank and see this no guns sign on the door. My wife was in the bank after that and asked the manager why the sign. He said some of his customers were uncomfortable seeing guns in the bank, I know sheeple, but nevertheless there are many more of them than us, and that if someone came in to hold up the bank, they'd shoot the armed guys first.

    So now, thanks to guys open carrying because that stops all crime, I can't carry in my bank anymore. It's just not worth it guys. And this thing with OC in CB may result in the very same action being taken at CB. If neither was ever aware that people were carrying guns in their places of business, nothing would have been done - 'out of sight, out of mind' so to speak. So if you think OC doesn't hurt, it hurt me directly. I really don't appreciate it. This thing is gonna backfire on us and we're gonna see more and more businesses respond the way Regions did.

    Walmart is another example: they allow concealed carry right now, but not OC. [QUOTE]

    Tangle...with all due respect, can you substantiate this statement?

    Please see my post # 48 in this thread. Negative OC experience tonight at Collierville, TN Walmart
