Mike Guerin gets it-'My Opinion'
June 03, 2014 at 12:31pm
Been out of touch for a few days, Y'all have been busy!
First, I understand that Waffle House CAN prohibit law abiding citizens from bringing firearms on their property. I stand behind their right to do so, however, this decision does not come without a consequence. That consequence will be a loss of my business.
I am sure that the loss of my business alone will not be felt but if I can convince some like minded people to follow my lead it will.
I have a Concealed permit and have since they were made available in Louisiana. I do not carry all the time. When I found this sign I was not armed but still turned around and went somewhere else. I do not spend money at businesses that don't want to serve 'my kind'.
Before the example of hospitals, post offices, federal buildings, etc. comes up I know about these prohibited locations. When the ambulance is bringing me to the nearest hospital I will not ask if it is 2nd Amendment friendly. Some things I have no control over. That does not mean I will just lay down. I write, call and pester elected officials (the ruling class) often about these issues and so should you. That is your right, exercise it.
The wild card in this discussion is the open carry movement. I think open carry should be legal simply to keep folks from getting in hot water for actions like walking across the street to show your buddy a new gun. I do not agree with the open carry long gun guys that show up at Sonic, Chili's, etc. with AR's for shock value.
All above is just my opinion. Like it or don't but stand behind your principals, whatever they are.
