    Had a handful of LEO friends of mine were refused service at the BWW in Mnassas, VA a few years ago. They were in training and most had their badges displayed and carried portable radios. On duty asst manager made them leave if they refused to go lock up their guns. Needless to say they left. This made pretty big news and corporation pretty much fell over backwards apologizing and admitted the AM erred.

    This article is wrong as they were asked to leave but one friend said they were already leaving anyway. The guy who reported this to the PD (Daryl LaClair) is a retired deputy from another agency who was shot in the face one night on Thanksgiving Eve in 1990 and the next morning the same suspect shot and killed one of my best friends right in front of me as SWAT went in the home after him.

    OP's situation is resolved, but a gift card to a posted business could be "re-gifted" or sold online if one didn't want to eat posted food.
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    Ain't turning down free food, sign or no sign.

    I had no intentions of ever going back after we went their the first time last year when I saw the sign. But like I said, I ain't turning down free food.

    Sign people don't get my business , unless I can't find what they are selling anywhere else, but since I wasn't paying, it really wasn't my business. Ha

    But I'm glad they took the sign down because I liked the atmosphere. They also have a pretty nice outdoor patio. I gotta find out if it's dog friendly so I can take Gunner. He loves boneless Wings.

    I never noticed a sign in one I went to occasionally in Marquette, Mi. The location in Green Bay, Wi had signage before, but did not have it the last time I was there.

    I don't share a reverence for the "dominion" of a business owner, when it comes to items carried on my person. Fortunately for me, signs in MN mean close to nothing, if carrying concealed.

    Both BWWs close to me are posted. Based on the app on my phone for posted locations, neither seem to meet the required signage by TN law. But if they don't want me there, I don't want to give them my money. I stopped going years ago. I wasn't that impressed anyway with the food, the service, or the loud enviornment.

    The last time I was in one (in MD), it was for a farewell party for a co-worker. There were maybe 20 of us sitting at a long row of tables. A waitress brought a platter of wings to our table, and we just assumed someone had ordered trays for all of us. After we had partaken of half a dozen or so wings the waitress came back and said she had delivered it to the wrong table. She picked it up and took it to another table on the other side of the restaurant without skipping a beat. I often wonder it that table knew they were "short" on wings. I'm pretty sure the health department would have frowned on this as well.

    You’re not the only one. Businesses are required to comply with many laws, yet they’re allowed to arbitrarily prohibit rights recognized by the Constitution. Doesn’t seem right to me.

    @rlggray Better enjoy the TV's while they last. Our favorite Mexican food restaurant ( real Tex-Mex, not ala Taco Bell ) has a sort-of bar area with large screen TV's on the walls. I spoke with the owner last time I was there, and she said they were considering taking the TVs out and giving everyone a cell phone!

    Just kidding brother.

    hmmm...

    Never been to a BWW, even though there are a couple just a short distance away.

    If they don't like law-abiding old guys like me carrying concealed, then I never will go.

    Besides, they just have the same things that numerous other similar joints offer.

    I can accept that some people may have to be forced by codified legal statute to respect the rights of others. I'm just not one of those people.

    yet they’re allowed to arbitrarily prohibit rights recognized by the Constitution

    where does it say in the Constitution that a person has a right to carry a firearm on the private property of another? When did the 2nd amendment become a pact between the citizenry and a private business owner?

    So they should not be allowed to stop somebody from preaching Islam in their stores either? (Protected under the 1st Amendment).

    You already know the answers to those questions and I don't have the energy to debate it right now.

    There's a major difference between the two. Preaching imposes something on others; concealed carry imposes nothing.

    I know, this is a hot button for a lot of people and I've dared to insult a sacred cow. I disagree with the presumption that businesses have an unrestricted right to prohibit concealed carry, but I'll leave it be.

    Everyone, feel free to pile on as you wish. I'm going to take a nap to knock back a headache. Too much travel, not enough sleep.
