Contrasting the corporate activism of chains – like Target and Jack in the Box – that have recently told law-abiding gun owners their firearms are not welcome is the owner of a Maryville, Tenn., restaurant.
Sharma Floyd recently posted a notice on the Shiloh Brew and Chew’s front door informing guests that they are free to bring in their guns, provided they are “holstered unless need arises.”
She said she got the idea after hearing of a frightening incident at a North Carolina eatery.
“They had put up a sign that said ‘No Weapons Allowed’ and they were robbed at gunpoint two days later.”
The response so far has been overwhelmingly supportive, Floyd added. As for those who disagree with the policy, she asserted that her constitutional rights trump any hurt feelings that might result.
“If you like it, that’s great. If you don’t, I’m sorry. I can’t change who I am.”
