Go intimidate people with your guns somewhere else.

It is the fact that you seek to restrict a Constitutional Right that bothers the public

So your right to be an idiot outweighs a property owners right to run their own business their way? -Gotcha Jethro.

If this was the Dixie Chicks' restaurant, Sean Hannity would have Toby Keith on to talk about how unAmerican it is. Since it is Toby Keith's restaurant, I'm guessing we won't hear much.

I wonder what it's like to go through life so perpetually frightened that you feel you need to be armed at all times?

MaudlinMutantMollusk: I wonder what it's like to go through life so perpetually frightened that you feel you need to be armed at all times?


I never understood it myself... I've had firearms in the house pretty much all my life. My grandfather taught me how to shoot. It's fun as hell. I'm not "anti-gun" by any stretch of the imagination.

Having said that, I live in a city with a violent crime rate 5 times the national average and I've never felt the need to carry any type of weapon with me when I'm out and about town. Ever.

I really don't understand the mentality of folks who can't leave the house without something strapped to their hip. Seems like most of these folks treat their firearms more like a fashion accessory or a political statement than any kind of self-defense tool.

But, whatever... "Little man with a gun in hand", as the song goes.

^This.

It's farking uncivilized to feel the need to be armed when you are sitting down for dinner in a nice restaurant. You can go on and on about your precious gun right all you like but getting outraged over other people wanting you to leave your dangerous little toys at home makes you look like a knuckle dragging Neanderthal.

If you think taking a weapon to ANY drinking establishment is a good idea you are farking retarded. There is simply no getting around that. You are dumb as dirt for even entertaining the idea.

Surprised? Hannity is the biggest phony out of the entire Fox cabal. He's a gutless coward who doesn't understand the idea of standing up for principles versus standing up for anyone with an (R) behind their name.

It's in a new yuppie shopping center near the mall. Odd place for a god, guns, and guts redneck bar.

I figure they want family oriented, upper middle class country music fans.

PROPERTY RIGHTS!!!   ...unless you want to smoke on that property,

If you're so scared of an inanimate object that reduces crime, maybe you should eat at home.
 
2013-12-28 11:48:53 AM
Anyone who thinks guns in a bar is a good idea is too stupid for country music.
There is NO, repeat, NO constitutional issue here, none.
Colt and Jim Beam are not a winning combination. Seriously, what is wrong with you people in VA?
If you need a gun at the bar, you are in the wrong bar.

(NRA member, likes guns, still thinks this is stupid)

Additionally, Virginia state law allows bar and restaurant owners to ban weapons from the premises, as long as they prominently display a gun-free sign in the establishment. However, "No Firearm" signs in Virginia unless the property is specifically mentioned in state law as off limits to individuals with a permit or license to carry.

It depends on the day. Black people maybe. Tea tards, xtians, trannies, college students.

Really? You can't go out to eat at a restaurant without feeling as though your life is in danger?

You either need to start making better choices regarding how you treat other people, or you need put on your adult pants and stop being so scared of everything.

It's kind of weird that the law is such a ridiculous, complicated grey area in Virginia.  Texas literally has two  specific signs you have to post (for no unlicensed guns and no guns at all, respectively, people that sell guns generally use the former).  By specific I mean the law mandates everything down to wording, font size, color choice, and where it has to be posted.

Also, the owner or property manager of any property can legally kick you out in the short term for any non-discriminatory reason, including that you're carrying.  If you argue with them over it, you literally lose and become a trespasser automatically, and aren't legally allowed to do anything but leave.

This takes a lot of the guess-work out of this shiat, and I highly recommend it.  And, come on, if farkin' Texas is fine with this level of restriction but you think it's all rights-violating and you fall far you the right of it I'm pretty sure you're the one that's missing something important.

// Being Texas, to be binding 30.06 signs also have to be in both English and Spanish, but I imagine that's not an issue for Virginia.

// I have a CCP but it's mostly just because the gun is a tool and I sometimes carry it around when I'm between things or when I'm just not thinking about securing it, like a pocket knife or a flashlight or something.  If you feel 'naked' or unsafe without it in the farkin' USA you... kinda have a problem and should seek psychological counseling.  Or at least talk to someone that actually instructs use so they can tell you that while guns do prevent quite a few crimes, they're mostly home-invasion crimes; by the time you could respond in most on-the-street crimes the criminal is way within safe draw range already.

We're not saying you can't have a gun. We're not saying you can't carry a gun. We're just saying you can't carry a gun in Toby Keith's house of pancakes.

Yes, but you can still be kicked out for trespassing after they've asked you to leave your gun in your car and you refuse on account of second 'mendment.

Ha, well I'd guess that driving your car gives you a higher probability of death or injury than wandering around and perhaps running into a criminal who would do you harm. So maybe people need the guns to protect themselves from getting into their own cars. Or I guess if you're scared of the outside world you could just stay home forever, but that sounds dull to me. No, I have no point to make.

Not really. Modern faux-redneck twang pop(call it what it is) is all about appealing to suburban wannabe rednecks. Ya know, the guys with the giant F-350s that have never gotten dirty that they drive from their suburban McMansions to their cushy, air-conditioned office jobs. It's just another way for insecure men to overcompensate for what nature didn't give 'em.
