    Removed by poster 'cause it was irrelevant. (Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most)

    Gil, this thread has nothing to do with Trayvon...pay attention.

    I have sent a letter to Waffle House expressing my opinion. I would encourage others to do the same.

    Waffle House is to breakfast restaurants, as McDonald's is to restaurants. Furthest down the scale I'll go is IHOP, so WH's gun policy is irrelevant to me. I could just see calling their corporate HQ:


    "Hello? My name is 3fgburner, and I'm calling about your corporate no-guns policy. If you do not amend it, I will continue my practice of never eating in your establishments. Oh -- and if you DO amend it, I still won't eat there."

    Them:
    ROFLMAO!!!!

    I wonder if they are posting proper 30.06 signs or if they are
    Just using generic signs.

    Waffle House must enjoy their defense free zone for when criminals decide to rob their stores.

    Nah, they just don't like it when criminals are not able to rob their businesses.

    Not true, I know of at least one Waffle house that employs armed security.
    Don't believe any facts that I say! This is the internet and it is filled with lies and untruth. I invite you to look up for yourself the basic facts that my arguments might be based upon. This way we can have a discussion where logic and hints on where to find information are what is brought to the forum and people look up and verify facts for themselves.

    I don't know, I only know that armed citizens have stopped armed robberies at WHs many times.

    Maybe the employees were mad that their friends kept getting shot or going to jail for armed robbery. How much is half of zero?

    They may have had the policy for "many years" but it is only recently that they've started turning us away or posting their property. Sorry some of you feel you're too good to eat there. If they ever institute a no guns policy at a restaurant you actually care about I'll be sure to tell you about how I've never eaten there, and don't intend to help in any way. :P

    I did not mean to come off as harsh. We've had signs at several WH locations for some time now. It's been pretty well known and if you check themap on the FriendorFoe website you will see that many of the WH sites are listed with negative ratings and the Corp policy is mentioned in the comments.

    They may have a point.

    I will support a ban on them when I travel

    As there are no Waffle Houses here in Washington State, Idaho, Montana or Wyoming (the States I travel most) not doing business with them will be easy. I merely have to remember that if I am visiting family in Utah, New Mexico or Texas that I do not think about patronizing them.
    Lets Unite and REMIND our Government that WE are the source of their authority and that WE demand our Rights be returned, Unabridged, Non-infringed, without denial or disparagement. The faults of a few, reflect badly on many, I therefore do not suggest anyone support WAC. My EDC is either a H&K USP .40 or a Taurus 689 .357 filled with Snake Loads

    Waffle House

    Personally like t' eat at Waffle House. I'll have to check for signage. Missouri has specific regs as to the size, design and placement of the No weapons signs. Hopefully my local WH doesn't have the sign cause now I gotta hankerin' for some hashbrowns...smothered, chunked and country!

    You read my mind, although for a different reason: Breakfast food must include pancakes, and WH doesn't do pancakes.

    Or the Second Amendment.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Wait a minute. Wasn't it a Waffle House where OC'ers allegedly thwarted a robbery due to their firearm visibility? (that's how the media portrayed it)

    If so, it seems to me that this would be a very bad decision on the part of Waffle House. I don't eat there because the food is sub-standard from what it was 15+ years ago.

    Must be a southern food stop.

    I have only seen the waffle house in the southern states.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
