    Applebees says no guns allowed

    My letter sent in regards to a sign on the front door.

    On June 11, 2011 my family decided to try Applebees while in Albany. I was quite disturbed to read a sign on the door saying that firearms are not allowed in the establishment. I see this as asking law abiding citizens to check their rights at the door. I am wondering if this is a corporate policy or if this is the particular resturants policy.
    Thank you
    Rusty

    Applebees reply



    It is our company policy and the right of every business owner in the State of Georgia to ban firearms in their building if they so desire.

    My reply

    Dear Mr Beever,
    I am sorry to hear this is the official policy of Applebees. While the State of Georgia does give Applebees the right to strip customers of their rights. I am sorry to hear that Applebees doesnt trust its law abiding customers the right to legally carry a firearm into their establishment. I do hope that great consideration will be given regarding this matter. I hope this is not taken lightly. I hope Applebees realizes that criminals will disregard this sign because thats what criminals do. I only see this sign as an advertisement welcoming crime. I can tell you that as an honest hard working American who can legally carry a firearm in the State of Ga neither I nor my family will feel safe in your resturant. I respect your rights though you do not respect mine. I promise to never carry a firearm into your resturant. However this means my wallet will never enter either.
    Thank you
    Rusty

    That's a great reply with regard to the somewhat "snarky" response you got from them.

    I can make better burgers and fries in my own kitchen. Not to mention for a heck of a lot less, and without the screaming children.

    Also, even if I never really went there anyways, I have never seen signs in PA or WV.

    I think the whole forum should email him our plans to never eat there again. Vote with your wallets boys and girls.

    I never liked their food. Now I know why. It's prepared by stupid idiots who think that criminals pay attention to signs.

    I'd LOVE to see THIS sign on a 7/11 door some day.

    I worked for them managing their restaurants for 10yrs & carried everyday/night . It must be that particular location ? They told the mgrs when hired that no firearms while working but what they don't know won't hurt them . Meaning if ya got it carry it but if something goes down you will be fired . My 1st month there I had an incident & pulled my Glock 27 on 2 guys wielding knives at closing . Lucky for them the police pulled up @ the same time (because they were called to break up the fight before the knives were pulled). I kept my job for 10yrs so I guess for insurance purpose they said that ????

    While Chili's aren't posted, I've never seen a TGIF that wasn't.
