I have made the decision to no longer dine at Buffalo Wild wings which saddens me because i love the food. I roughly spend around $400 a year at your locations (over the last 10 years). But i have convinced 4 other friends who dine with me to no longer dine in your resturants. The reason behind this is because you are not allowing legal handgun permit holders to enter while carrying. To have a handgun carry permit you must have no felony convictions, no class a or b misdemeanors within the last 5 years, pass both state and federal background checks, be not delinquent in child support, student loans or state/local taxes. How much do you know about your other customers? Your sign only stops the legal permit holders from bringing a handgun into your locations a criminal is NOT going to pay attention to a sign. Your company is now on the list at multiple websites as a business that prohibits legal handgun carry on their property. Chili's and Ruby Tuesdays will be recieving more business from me and friends as they currently have a favorable policy. I really do hope you reconsider your policy.

Dear Mr. Davis,

“Buffalo Wild Wings respects the right of individuals to carry firearms but we do not believe they are appropriate inside of a public restaurant. We are focused on the comfort, safety and enjoyment of all of our guests and have elected to exercise our right to restrict the carrying of firearms in our restaurants. We regret any inconvenience this may cause but believe that this policy is in the best interest of all of our guests and our Team Members.”

Thank You,
Guest Relations

My reply.
I do hope that you realize that criminals are the only people that will have firearms in your restaurant. I have explained what a legal permitted citizen has to comply with in order to carry a firearm. Until your companies stance is changed on this issue I will ensure that neither my friends or family will be patrons at your establishments. You do state that you value the safety of your guest but over 6 million Americans have went through the permit process so that they would feel safe. Your companies stance really sent the message that criminals are safe in your restaurants because because legal permit holders are not allowed to carry there.

Thank you for your time
Daniel Davis

I agree

A no weapons sign on the door means no $ coming out of my pocket, & every member of my family feels the same, & I have a pretty large family. Now, throw in friends & friends of friends & now you have a very large chunk of change. But, once again, it is the average, law abiding citizen who is made to bend over & smile, while the criminals & dirt bags are coddled & just sit back & laugh at all of us & the law????

Any day above dirt is a good day!!! My New Motto: Where Do I Sign? (Oh yes I would)

With your permision I would like to post this on some of my other gun forums. I will for sure be telling my freinds about this. Any business that does not welcome my concealed/open carried firearm does not get a red cent of my money.

here in eatonville,other than bars and the courthouse/town hall,guns are legal as long as you have the proper license.nothing like getting asked "what ya carryin' " at the grocery store.
