    Guns are Welcome sign at Maryville Shiloh Brew and Chew restaurant.

    (WBIR-Maryville) Gun control is a hot topic across the country, and one East Tennessee restaurant owner is making her opinion very clear by posting a 'Guns are Welcome' sign on the front door of her family-friendly establishment. "As the owner, I wanted to stand my ground. I have that constitutional right. If you like it, that's great, if you don't, I'm sorry for you. I can't change who I am," said Sharma Floyd, with Shiloh Brew and Chew.
    [ ... ]
    At a nearby table, a group from Cleveland, Ohio, had their take on the signs.

    "We laughed, to be honest. It is the perfect expectation of coming to the South. It doesn't bother me, I grew up around guns. But I probably wouldn't go into a restaurant in Cleveland that had that on the door, but I have no problem coming into a restaurant down here that has that on the door."

    And that is why guns are needed in Cleveland. Well done Ms. Floyd.

    They just don't get it, do they? Will they ever get it? (The Magic 8-Ball says "Results are hazy. Try again later.")

    And yes, the story is making its way across the internet - perhaps with more speed than the story about the restaurant in Rifle, CO.

    Excellent!!

    Nothing makes me happier than seeing a sign like this. Perhaps, every business owner who believes this way could put up a similar sign. It would be nice to see thousands of such signs all across the good old USA.

    I'm just waiting for a sign like that to be on the door to some restaurant in Southern Illinois. A local bank already has a sign that says SECURITY NOTICE The lawful carry of concealed firearms is permitted on this property. Another bank in a different town has a sign Protected by Smith & Wesson.
