    Just sent Red Robin Gourmet Foods a Letter concerning their "No Weapons Policy"

    This is to inform the corporate office that sadly, I can no longer eat at Red Robin. After the Sandy Hook shooting, I made it my goal to make sure my family and I will never again be at the mercy of a crazed gunman. Since your policy is to require that even concealed carry permit customers not carry into your restaurant, I can no longer in good conscience allow my family to eat there. There are only two places in this area that require no weapons, RR, and a theater. Please tell me, if a gunman wanted to make the most of his outing before getting killed - where would he go, the restaurant that allowed weapons for those trained how to use them (please see Arizona Law on CCW), or the ONE restaurant that does not?

    Since I don't fancy allowing my family to sit in free-fire zones for crazed gunmen. We will be eating somewhere else from this point on. I'm sorry, very sorry since your food is fantastic and I've always had good service there.
    Anyone think I'll even get a response?

    On that note, I wonder what would happen if thousands of people started sending these responses, and then followed up on their actions.

    Lol, just had lunch there today... Was geared up as usual and didn't even see the No Weapons signage... Oh well... One thing I'll say is the burger was just okay, and by that I mean JUST okay.. I won't be going back but not because of the NW policy, just because the hype regarding the burgers is a crock of you know what. Gourmet my foot! Spent $12 + tip for a slicked up Wendy's single and fries, no thank you. Oh' nice letter BTW. I'm sure it will fall of deaf ears and lacking intellect, but hey it's worth a try I guess. JMO, other than writing our state officials, I'd say it's pretty much a waste of time trying persuade these types of places to relax their policy regarding firearms, especially ones that cater to family's like this place does. Cheers!

    We eat there all the time. My kid likes the all you can eat spaghetti and my wife and I usually get some kind of chicken sandwich

    I also carry there all the time, and haven't seen a No Guns sign. I'll look harder next time.

    One of my favorite places to eat, Buffalo Wild Wings, put a No Guns sign up on their door. Fortunately, in Utah, CCW holders aren't required by law to obey those signs in businesses.

    Never noticed any Texas-enforceable 30.06 signage at my local Red Robin (which is good, because their fish and chips are like crack cocaine to me...). Buffalo Wild Wings has a no guns sign on the door, but it is not the 30.06 sign required in Texas. I just smile and walk in. My 16 y/o son and his friends often meet there and I'm glad that legally armed sheepdogs might be in their midst.

    The three that I frequent are not posted (to my knowledge). Red Robin is a franchise and most if not all locations, outside of

    maybe their original Seattle, WA location, are independently owned.

    I must confess though, I very rarely look for signage here in Washington because signs don't carry the weight of law.

    Since No-Gun signs have no weight of law in FL,I never pay attention to them.
    I don't even boycott places with them since I don't want to reward the company's ignorance of the FL law with any extra action at all.
    I may get an argument from the forum on this.
    BTW,I have RARELY seen these signs in FL.

    The only problem I see with your letter is the portion I quoted. Since AZ is a Constitutional Carry state, no training required anymore, unless you want to get a carry permit.

    Robert Heinlein said it best.

If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. "

    Eat, drink, and be safe.

    Assuming you mean Portland? I've been to both that one and Augusta, ME and I haven't seen signs at either. It's likely a franchise decision rather than corporate. I haven't see anything at Buffalo Wild Wings either when I had last gone.
