That letter is a work of art. I would like to save it and shamelessly plagerize it should I ever need to write a similar letter. May I?
The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.
As far as open carry, it's not something I would care to do "in society". Of course, I have no problem when I'm hiking, fishing, etc. Of course, in Wyoming, we're not permitted to carry in bars. I do think open carry would make a lot of people nervous and would not win friends for "self protection" advocates. Personally, I don't want anyone to know I'm carrying.
I think the business owner has a right to establish rules for his business and we have a right to "vote with our feet".
I was a very well written letter, btw.

That was definitely the best written letter!!! I too would like to keep a copy although giving full credit to you. Thank you for sharing.
Life is too short, stop to smell the roses and don't let anyone take it away from you!
That sucks dude, that place actually has really good food. I thought a sign had to be posted?
Thank your great governor kaine on that one. Virginians(I used to be one) need to not elect antis like him anymore.
Anyways I'm curious what the reply will be(if any).......

I think you were right to not pay for the meal. When I eat at a restuarant, I don't consider that the food is the only thing being purchased. Equally important are the service, convenience, atmosphere, etc. -- the whole experience. If this were not true then a restaurant would be nothing more than a drive through window. How many times have you eaten in a restaurant even when you know you could make a cheaper, better meal at home?
If they had attempted to make you pay the bill after asking you to leave then they would be cheating you out of half of what you are actually paying for. I hope that sometime in the near future you will be able to carry concealed in restaurants.

This is the exact reason I pointed out the difference between civil and political rights earlier in the thread.

I would really like to read the response from them.
Am I close?
