    Equal Opportunity and Stupidity of Treatment - Restaurant kicks out gun-toting cops

    USA Today headline reads:
    Restaurant kicks out gun-toting cops
    At least the manager's action was non-discriminatory - even if it wasn't IAW Denny's corporate policy! See the complete video story - http://www.usatoday.com/media/cinematic/video/1807685/ Pax...

    some things I can think of

    1) why should the department restrict the ability of officers to go to the Dennys while on duty? I mean if an officer is on lunch time and wants to try to spend his paycheck there that shouldn't be an issue. the Chief is just being an ass, the decision to boycott dennys should be made the individual officers not the chief. WAY inappropriate IMO

    2) man, if the Smith and Wesson 5609 is sooooo scary and terrifying.... I want one...

    3) maybe it's better open carry isnt legal in IL, if they got hoplophobes THAT unreasonable....
    they love our milk and honey, but they preach about some other way of living, when they're running down my country man they're walkin' on the fightin side of me

    1) Why should the department not restrict their officers from eating somewhere that the "management" frustrated the officers to the point that they just left and ate elsewhere? I think the chances are excellent that this moratorium on Denny's will be short-lived, and that the Chief (it was a Captain being interviewed) is most likely (I am not a mind reader) trying to teach a Denny's manager an object lesson in the 'manners of the hospitality industry' ("If you don't want our armed officers in your eating establishment, we can fix that!"). A bit childish? Yes. Effective? Who knows? The manager that caused the ruckus probably got a reprimand from Corporate. (Once upon a time, Denny's was a prime target for armed robberies - at least out here in the West. Corporate HQ probably remembers those days.)

    2) Sign me up for one also.

    3) You may be right about that... or, they need a law allowing OC by LACs. (LEO's don't need such a law since they are authorized to carry by the state, and [probably] required by their department to be armed when on duty) Pax...
