    Buffalo Wild Wings = anti concealed carry

    This may be old news to many of you, but I wanted to share this communication regarding Buffalo Wild Wings' corporate policy prohibiting legal concealed carry within their establishments.

    Me to them via website (http://listening.buffalowildwings.com/contact.php):
    My family has been a regular customer (at least once a week) of this BWW's for almost two years. I was saddened to see a sign in the window prohibiting those who choose to lawfully carry a firearm from doing so.

    The right to life and self-defense is the most basic of rights, and I find it despicable that BWW's would, by policy, prohibit someone from exercising that right.

    Due to this policy, we will no longer be frequenting this BWW's nor any other.
    Their response:
    Buffalo Wild Wings respects the right of individuals to carry firearms but we do not believe they are appropriate inside of a public restaurant. We are focused on the comfort, safety and enjoyment of all of our guests and have elected to exercise our right to restrict the carrying of firearms in our restaurants. We regret any inconvenience this may cause but believe that this policy is in the best interest of all of our guests and our Team Members.
    I urge everyone here to carefully reconsider spending another dime at BWW's.

    It is beyond me as to how the corporate officers can say that a concealed handgun...CONCEALED mind you...will affect the comfort, safety and enjoyment of all of their guests. That is a crock...

    Yes it is their right, as it is mine to inform them they lost a customer and why. Nuff said

    Who cares? The food is garbage anyway, so I see no point in going.

    To be clear, he never told them that BWW CAN'T exercise their right, but rather making them aware that he will now choose not to patronize their establishment due to their choice. That is right in my book.

    Because some "guests" feel better seeing a sign prohibiting concealed handguns. They believe it will make the place a true gun free zone and that the crooks will see the sign and go home. So they "feel" safer knowing the sign is out there. Its insane, but I've talked to people who truly believe this. It is very fortunate that people who are that naive are also dumb enough to think the signs about "unlicensed carry prohibited" also means the same thing. So that will usually please everyone.

    No one said anything about it being a big deal. I certainly didn't.

    I wanted to share with everyone what I feel is an anti concealed carry establishment. If you want to put money in the hands of a company that doesn't trust you, a company that doesn't believe in your right to concealed carry, you're obviously free to do so.

    I choose not to.

    I fully understand your right to carry a concealed firearm. It is there RIGHT, to say you cant carry it in there business. You also have the right to do what you are doing. You are not hurting there feelings at all. BWW doesnt give a crap.

    NC law doesn't allow me to going into BWW anyway armed. I did go into one during new years in FL and didn't notice a sign.

    This I agree with, and that is just what the OP did. He was simply bringing this to the attention of other CC'ers that may be used to carrying in BWW. If all of us were as vocal as the OP ( I admit I am not, but should be), maybe then businesses would see how much business they do lose due to irrational rules. I ran into a similar situation, and fully intended on contacting the owners via email (not a fan of making a scene in public, or announcing that I have a permit in public), and never got around to it. I applaud the OP for actually speaking his mind in a professional manner.
