Last night while driving back to Boise from Albuquerque, my friend and I stopped at store #13496, located at 869 Pole Line Road, Twin Falls, ID. Upon entering the store, my friend placed his order, but I was accosted by the manager ("Nick"), who began tapping his side excitedly and said, "You're not supposed to have a gun in here." I was surprised because I have lawfully openly-carried a firearm into many McDonald's restaurants without incident. I asked Nick if that was McDonald's corporate policy, and he responded in the affirmative. I told him that if he was asking me to leave, I would, and went back out of the door. There was no signage on any door of the restaurant indicating that the lawful carrying of firearms is prohibited, and my understanding was that McDonald's corporate policy was to follow state law.
I frequently travel for both business and pleasure, and when I am on the road, I enjoy eating at McDonald's restaurants. I find them to be both convenient and a good, dependable value. However, if I am not allowed to protect myself in a manner permitted by state law, then I will be forced to discontinue patronizing your establishments, and give my business to a company that does not forbid the lawful carrying of firearms. I will also make your decision known to my family, friends, and on internet forums I frequent, and will encourage all to likewise discontinue patronizing your restaurants. Please let me know your policy.
