    Restaurant posts ‘No Guns Allowed’ sign, gets robbed at gunpoint

    Snippit:

    But everyone involved needs to face one very important fact. They were not murdered only because the robbers did not decide to kill them. The robbers had all the power. No one could resist them. Why? Because the owner of The Pit Authentic Barbecue has banned guns in his restaurant.



    Here’s a photo of The Pit Authentic Barbecue, Durham, from the street.



    And here’s a close up of the door, showing the sign.

    Take a close look at the anti-gun sign. See how it’s not just some generic “No Guns” sign the owner, Greg Hatem picked up down at the local sign emporium. No, these are custom jobs. He went out of his way to make custom signs to make sure we gun owners felt unwelcome.

    For those who can’t make it out behind the reflection, let me describe it. The three pictograms are labeled “NC State Capitol,” “NC Legislative Building,” and “The Pit.” Above the pictograms it says, “No Weapons” and below, “No Concealed Firearms.”

    Black Blade: I am always armed regardless - however, I choose to never frequent businesses that hate me soI wouldn't have been able to help these folk if I were in the area. I figure that the management and their customers made their choice and must suffer the consequences of their actions. We often hear of robbers who rob, abuse the staff and customers and even murder them so there are "no witnesses". You take your own chances in life and so it goes ... Can you say "Karma"?

    Default And this restaurant has a change of heart - after gun owner boycott

    Steakhouse in GA Removes “No Guns” Sign After Boycott From Gun Owners

    Snippit:

    "Something about guns and red meat just go together. The two things are quintessentially American and forcing someone to enjoy one without the other apparently doesn’t go over too well with gun owners, especially in the South, where we take our gun rights and our ribeyes very seriously."

    "T-Bonz steakhouse in Augusta, GA recently placed a 'No Guns' sign on their front door. The backlash was pretty much immediate. Customers began letting the restaurant know that if their gun wasn’t welcome, they would take their business elsewhere." ...

    Definitely Karma at work. Unless the establishment, or municipal building has a metal detector and LEO at the door my wife and I still carry. We just don't make it known. If I have a choice, I'm not going to give a place like that my business anyway, but sometimes you get in a situation where you have no choice but to do some form of business with them. Just because they have a sign up that says "no guns" it doesn't mean that criminals are going to bother with it, so neither am I. F*ck 'em! If I choose to save my own life and/or the life of my wife, they can kiss my @$$!

    "If they’re going to come here illegally, apply for & receive assistance through a corrupted Government agency encouraging this lawless behavior, work under the table & send billions of dollars each year back to their families in Mexico, while bleeding local economies dry, protest in our streets waving their Mexican flags DEMANDING rights, while I have to press ’1′ for English, then they need to be shipped back to where they came from!" -Chad Miller

    Unfortunately that is exactly the situation you don't want to be in. Use your gun in that situation and some greedy lawyer is going to find a paycheck. Just sayin. Better just to not do business with them.
