In this context

I went to Buffalo Wild Wings last week and noticed a sign on the door saying "Guns are banned at Buffalo Wild Wings". It also has the GMs number. I think I will call and clarify their position. I'll update y'all on what I find.

I respect a business' decision to not want weapons on their premises like I would respect a any private property owner to do so. But if I had acquaintances that told me, "we don't want guns in our house", I wouldn't be visiting.
Besides, it again comes down to, why should I disarm and take a chance on my safety (albeit small) because of someone's anti-liberty ideology?
My co-workers couldn't seem to understand this. They were saying it's because they serve alcohol, and I told them that it's already a law that if their sales from alcohol is > 51%, no guns. So they go on with that maybe because they serve alcohol at all, they don't want to have firearms in the place. Again, I told them it is already against the law for a permit holder to drink when carrying.
So who were they asking to not carry? Responsible gun owners that wouldn't drink. Yeah, that sounds reasonable. lol

How inane it is to put up a sign like that. Thugs won't give a crap. In fact they'll feel better about robbing the place. Do they deny service to armed law inforcement? Please leave your service weapon in your vehicle before dining? Yes they have a right to put up the sign, but it would be just as effective if they said " we are liberals and we hate guns".

51 percent rule

First of all I have never been to a buffalo wild wings so I do not know if the 51% rule applies. In washington state, if a food serving establishment makes 51 percent of its revenue from alcohol sales, it is illegal to carry a firearm into the restaurant and they have to post a notice claiming so. Similar to the ones you might see at the post office. Laws vary state to state, but perhaps the owner of the establishment in question placed the sign due to regulations. I am curious to see what our illustrious friend SJMB is told.

Sounds like Washington has the same exact law as Texas. For 51% establishments, there is a state issued sign the establishment will hang in the window. It is uniform and is highlighted in red to distinguish it from the other "we suggest" or "no unlicensed firearms". This place didn't have that and I know they don't sell that much. I doubt it's more than 5%.

This sign was cheap cut out sticker letters and clearly just put up by the establishment.

I haven't called yet, but will soon. Maybe I'll swing by and take a pic too, just so I can send it out for anyone else not wanting to patronize an anti-liberty establishment.

I confirmed with the General Manager that the corporation has a policy that they do not welcome weapon carrying customers. I made sure they realized they are only turning away responsible gun carrying citizens who could possibly protect their interests in a bad situation.

They said they don't feel citizens need to carry weapons in a place of business.

Guess where I'll never eat again? Spread the word, brothers (and sisters).

banned guns

I carry everywhere except courthouses,got to write for permission to carry at the state capital,which i did.All any business can do is askyou to leave if they see your gun.I can appreciate their position by banning guns,they probably get a break on their liability insurance.

if they ask you to leave,just leave,if you stay and you are carrying a gun,then you have a problem.

won't the MFer be surprised if he trys to hurt someone at the Buffalo wild wings i am in.hahahaha.

I didn't realize you could write for permission. I'll have to check Texas to see if it's the same. I don't go to courthouses that much, so it shouldn't be an issue. But I do dislike whenever I have to go to school events (football games, esp), or the Dr.s office and have to leave my CCW in the car.

I don't think there is the same clause in the Texas PC. They only specify government buildings, schools and school events, hospitals, and any place that sells alcohol as more than 50% of their business. Every thing else you're OK.
The BWW notice has no legal binding. I can still go in if I wanted. But it's the principle. If they don't want law abiding citizens carrying weapons in their establishment, I don't want to patronize their establishment. I get what Lucky is saying though. Probably for liability purposes. But I have my principles I have to follow. Their principle is (at best) saving a buck. Mine is liberty.
