    So I've become good friends with the GM of the Greenbrier BWW, Stopped in there today to grab some wings for lunch, and asked my buddy whats the deal with the huge sign on the door? He told me in Tennesse one of the cooks came out from the kitchen noticing a customer OCing, Went over to his table and said '' Sir theres no reason for you to have a gun in here.'' '' Its a family restaurant!'' The guy tells him to mind his own ******* business, Standing outta his chair, Well the cook shouts across the restaurant to call the police this guy has just threatened me with a gun!(Frightening every customer in the place) Manager comes over tells the guy to leave and the guy Says '' No I'm gonna finish my meal.'' Long story short cops come escort the guy out.... Well the story makes it all the way to Corporate, And they vote to ban all firearms!

    1-I dont care why they want to infringe on my right to self defense.

    2-I dont give any real credit to the story that comes from BWW as to why they think they should infringe on my rights.

    3-They should have fired the cook.

    4-If they dont want my @#$%ing business, someone else does!

    5-I would never set foot in that place, let alone grab some wings for lunch.

    My .05 cents...

    Yeh, that story stretches credibility.

    And I agree that, if true, the cook should have been fired.

    Not only did he go beyond his authority to come out of the kitchen to manage the customers, his actions were unacceptable.

    Cook: "You don't need such a fast car."
    Customer: "I'll drive what I effing want to."
    Cook: "Hello 911? Some guy tried to run me over."

    I thought in TN you had to leave the gun in a car if the place sells alcohol... I know that recently changed but BW3's has had this ban as long as I can remember.

    Either the story came from hollywood or the person in this story was breaking the law at the time.

    It sound's like you may have the power to turn this around. Educate your friend on the laws and reasons to carry. Make him (or her) an expert. They in turn can explain to corporate in these economic times, he should not have to turn away busines from law abiding citizens and that he would like corporate to remove the ban and follow the footsteps of other major chain stores (Startbucks, best Buy, Home Depot, Walmart, etc etc etc.

    Tell your friend to come to Fuddruckers at 7PM in Herndon tonight and see how much business we really bring to a place ;-)

    1- It's private property, a private business, so we all know that you have no right to carry on the property.

    2-They don't really need to give credit to why they don't allow BWW. They are free to choose what they believe is best for their business, just as you are free to open carry on public property.

    3-Maybe that cook should be talked to, but to take his job away from him for having a confrontation would be wrong. Also, none of us were there, so who knows what exactly was said between either party.

    4- Exactly! There are other places to go, so if you don't agree with a business, just head else where.

    5- I wish there was a BWW closer to my area, because I do like their wings.

    The cook should have his head examined. What idiot leaves a place of safety to go start a verbal argument with an obviously armed man?

    Anti-gun is anti-gun is anti-gun, no matter their reasoning. None of it, in my mind, can come from looking at an issue logically and rationally, rather than emotionally.

    I need a wing place in Richmond, but can't really find one. Wing Zone is meh, but they deliver and I don't care for Hooters.

    Any recommendations?

    Then again I probably don't have any business eating wings in the first place.

    Should have charged the cook for inciting a riot. lol That is like yelling fire in a theater. Cook should have just let the manager handle it.

    Some managers are too scared and can't work up the courage to talk to the customer themselves. That might've been the case, if the story is even true. I've had it happen to me before.

    Buffalo Wing Factory is better anyway. By the way, you should try the twice baked potato pizza if you haven't yet.

    If BWW changed their policy I still wouldn't go!!
    Their wings are worse than Hooters been to both places once, Southern NV locations.
    BWW would have to change their policy and their wing recipe.

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    This looks like an object lesson in how being a jerk can hurt us all.

    I've been asked to leave places because I was OC; yeah it pissed me off but I didn't have to pay for my food either.

    When asked to leave private property, DO IT. Argue with management, etc. later.

    Whether true or not makes little difference - they don't want my money - no problem.

    As to the alleged events - the customer should have responded with curtesy and restraint while recording the entire incident, asked to have his meal comped and left.

    Then - make and send a copy/download of the incident to corporate and possibly gone public with it.

    Be aware what we say and do (and how) reflects on OCers and 2A advocates everywhere.

    I call BS on your friend's (or "friend's" ) story. A story like that would have made a news blurb somewhere.

    I DID, however, find this...

    http://www.kentuckyhunting.net/forum...ad.php?t=81813

    Today as I was walking in I noticed something different though, it was a "ban on all guns" sign displayed on your front door. I mentioned this to the manager and he explained that there had been a few shootings at various stores around the country and that corporate had changed the policy nationwide.
    Now compare this to the OP's story...


    Stopped in there today to grab some wings for lunch, and asked my buddy whats the deal with the huge sign on the door? He told me in Tennessee one of the cooks came out from the kitchen noticing a customer OCing,
    Sorry to put you through the wringer, man, but we've had a lot of drive-by BS lately, and I think everyone's a little wary of claims at the moment.

    Nothing personal.

    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Hello, My name is bobby i wanted to share a quick story with you. While shopping in Greenbrier mall this past weekend, My 1yr son was hungry so i walked to Mickey D's as i was ordering a sercurity guard walks up behind me taps my shoulder and says''Sir what do you think your doing''. i turned around saying HUH? "yOU CAN'T HAVE THAT IN HERE'' says the ******. Knowing what hes clearly talking about,[ The Kimber on my hip]. I say What a Kid? referring to my son. Now let me just tell ya alittle about this guy 6'0 tall , 300lbs, shirt half untucked, ghetto sounding S.O.B says "Dont be a smartass the Gun On your hip I need you to leave and I'll walk you out right now!'' So i smile grab my sons hand and just start walking towards the door, He then shouts out loud ''Hey i said i'll walk you out''. I dont even look back, He comes running over beside me and says you think your a tough guy huh?. i just laugh, Then he tells me as im outside if we were on the street he'd take the gun away from me and beat my ass! LMAO! I said Id love to see your fat ass try! Gave him the finger and went on with my day. Now, i'm sure there are no signs on the sears doors. My question is, Does the mall have to post at every entrance? Ps: Mall Sercurity= Unarmed ( Please do not shop at Greenbrier Mall)
    Thanks bro for the tips, Nah. I never mentioned the sign, Outta respect for the fellow Oc'ers i never refuse to leave and never wanna bring negative attention to my Brothers of Arms.
    You already have by the way you talk and the attitude expressed - not good.

    Back up and learn to handle yourself in a non-confrontational way.

    Are you just driving by or will you be coming to some of the events so that others may know who and what you are?

    Can't help but wonder about new posters that jump in with allegorical stories with poorly chosen words.
