    Buffalo Wild Wings National Protest

    BWW are getting blasted on Facebook for posted no gun signs. Every menu item they post gets flooded with pro-gun/2nd amendment comments.

    Damn that is some coordination on hitting every post. Maybe they will change their minds.

    That is a lot of Pro-2A post! Who'd a thunk banning guns would outrage people so much... /sarcasm

    Thankfully I live in Missouri, where I can carry concealed into places with such policies, with no legal liabilty aside from a trespassing charge IF they ask me to leave AND I refuse to do so.

    On a side note, Sutherland's Lumber here has a sign prohibiting concealed carry, so I just open carry as normal in there, and have yet to have anyone say anything to me.

    Same here in FL. I had an instructor in my LE academy try and tell me that no-gun signs have force of law here in Florida -____-

    Nobody ever said LE is/are/were well versed in the laws.

    (could figure out which one sounded right to me, coffee hasn't kicked in yet )

    Any of those would have been grammatically correct.

    "is" if LE as a singular entity.
    "are" if LE as a collective group.
    "were" if LE as a collective group in the past tense.

    You get a cookie.

    That is amazing! As much response against them as there was praising Starbucks!

    What prompted it?

    Since it's been a policy for a few years, 2009 according to a forum post here found in a Google search, I'm guessing it's just a backlash of current happenings, and the proposed gun legislation. Whatever the reason, it's good to see so many people standing up for what's right and speaking their opinions quite loudly. They are understanding that now is not the time to be silent.

    I have a feeling it's partially in response to them actually putting up signs. I've been to multiple BWW around the St Louis area, carrying the whole time, and never saw one posted. I haven't been to one since this whole thing started though.
