Steakhouse in GA Removes “No Guns” Sign After Boycott From Gun Owners
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.
According to local media reports [emphasis mine],
“I come up and see a sign on your door that says you don’t allow weapons, I’m going to honor your sign, but then I’m also not going to come into your establishment,” that’s how Jennifer Seymour feels about a no gun rule that was recently reversed by T-Bonz steakhouse.
“It’s a matter of that it’s not convenient for me to take my gun off to come in an eat, so I’m not going to do that,” she told News 12, as she loaded her gun up.
Some took it a step further and wrote on Facebook how they weren’t coming back either. Seymour didn’t chime in on socialmedia, but did email T-Bonz Steakhouse.
“They also sent me a personal email back saying that they had taken the sign down and re-thought things,” she told News 12.
The restaurant’s Facebook page says the sign was meant for irresponsible gun owners, but then realized a sign wouldn’t really stop careless carriers.
Would you look at that? A little common sense thinking that realizes criminals don’t care about signs, or laws for that matter.
It should also be noted that in Georgia signs don’t carry legal weight, but any private property owner can ask a carrier to leave and they must abide or face a criminal trespassing charge.
