    The issue however, is that RR has a liquor license, which means that you cannot carry into the establishment without a permit - and if you want a permit, you need training. It's that little caveat that I was thinking of specifically when I wrote that.

    It's also why I'm doing what I can to get a permit as soon as possible.

    I've never been to a RR. Wasn't aware they sell alcohol. Since that is the case,I retract my earlier post.

    I've eaten at RR in our area and at the one in Knoxville TN. Haven't seen either location posted. Didn't really pay attention at home as signs don't carry weight of law. In TN they do, I'll have to look again. If it's a corp policy, I'll just have to get my fat fix somewhere else. Agree with gottabkiddin, food not all that great.

    I have never seen a posting on RR and I travel a good bit. There is always a first.

    If I'm carrying or not is no more their business than if I'm wearing boxers or briefs.
    If it doesn't carry the weight of law, I don't care if they post a sign for PC reasons

    The question is: Is it possible that enough people will boycott this chain (or any others) because of a posted no carry policy to cause them economic challenge? (After all, economics drives most social and political movements in our free market society, all due respect to those who think morals, values, religious beliefs, etc are the driving factors...). If the answer is NO, then Red Robin could not possibly care less about any letters you send them. Most likely, that is the case, because consumers speak with their wallets, not letters, and if they felt a threat from the "I'm not going to patronize your establishment because of a no guns allowed policy" crowd, they surely would not have posted the signs. More likely, they perceive an opportunity to gain customers from the "I feel safer taking my family to eat because they don't allow guns there" crowd...

    "Red Robin GOURMET Foods"? If they are that clueless about food I see no reason to go there. I ate in a Red Robin once. It was equal in it's culinary sophistication to Denny's.

    Evidently not as there have been other posts about Red Robins, its signs, and boycotting it, yet the signs remain on select RRs. We are too few in numbers to have an affect on most any chain. You might have an impact on the independent Mom & Pop store.

    Ah, lol. Yeah, they have a separate bar area.

    BTW - haven't received a response back yet. It's still early in the week, so we'll see.

    In FL you can carry into a restaurant even if they have a bar area as long as you sit away from the bar. I have never seen a sign at any restaurant (including RR) near me.

    I have to laugh at some signs businesses post. One that comes to mind posted at a Credit Union "No illegal Guns Allowed" as if the would be robber is going to obey.

    They are still pretty new to Florida I think. There's one around Fort Myers if I'm not mistaken.
