This is absolutely the best idea for a restaurant. I am ready for one to open here. Hell if I can manage a franchise that may be good.

Best idea

the best idea for a restaurant is serving great food.

however if brandishing and flaunting a weapon in public is your idea of a great time, have fun.

Nah. Guns don't interest me. I want to see a "Handlebar and Grill" open in my area.

I bet they don't get robbed and the patrons & employees feel safe

Aside from making a political statement, I'm not a fan of open carry.

I once went to a bar that replaced all its stools with playground swingset swings. Worst Idea ever. I'd like a bicycle themed restaurant, but replacing stools with bike seats should be avoided, except at the numbness cafe.

I've never been in a restaurant that allows firearms, not sure I would feel safe in one.

i couldn't get past the one server with the short shorts and the sidearm in the holster dangling down by her knees flopping around as she walked and served food.

Your getting me excited Mike.

I wouldn't go to one of these restaurants, because statistically my chance of being accidentally shot increases as the number of guns increases. I believe that a restaurant like this would invite more gun wielders than a standard restaurant, therefore, I choose somewhere else.

That made me really uncomfortable too. All that flopping and bumping (calm down jagar), just seems unsafe. The owner had one tight on her hip that I was much more comfortable with.

I don't know of any store / restaurant....(except target) around here that don't allow guns. Open carry is legal here in Louisiana without a permit but it is encouraged to have your conceal carry permit.

And yes the girl in the shorts....very nice

The gun in question was a revolver....not a semi auto. It was prob a double action. The hammer on the back is what fires the round but either there needs to be a full trigger pull or you must pull back the hammer in order for it to discharge.

There are a number of gimmicky restaurants we don't frequent. This would be on our list.

I don't really feel comfortable when I'm out in public and I see someone in civilian clothes with a holstered gun.

I just can't help but wonder about that person's mental state and intentions, and would most likely take my family, finish whatever business we had there and leave as soon as possible.

Do I think guns should be illegal or even banned from public carry? No, because that would prevent them from being carried in appropriate situations.

Would I shop or dine at a business that *encouraged* open carry of guns? Not if another option was available.

Of course the argument can be made that only outlaws will carry guns when they are outlawed, and the people might be sitting ducks if they are not allowed to have guns of their own.

I would say I trust people, but not to the point that I would like to be around a group of strangers with deadly weapons. At least not in a situation where firing those weapons be inappropriate and illegal except in self-defense.

A hunting/camping trip, or shooting bottles and cans in the middle of nowhere, or at a shooting range, the more guns the better. On a military operation, obviously the more guns and body armor and etc. the better. At a restaurant? A gun is just saying to the world "I have something to prove"

I should add, although I'm on active duty these are my personal views and have nothing to do with the views of the US military and nothing to do with my position.

you probably arent the only one :P

Let me preface my comments with this. I'm a member of the NRA, I have a Conceal Carry permit, and I rarely don't have a gun on me, unless I am in a business, church, or school that is a gun free zone. I do NOT open carry.

I think this restraint for where it's at is Gimicky and does work for what they want, and they realize it's not for everyone. I would have no issue going in and having dinner with my family, although my wife might be uneasy about doing so.

I'm still thinking about the worst thing here - the post or the restaurant, or both?

12/18/2014 02:04:40 PM · #22
Open carry in a public setting is almost always about rights and rarely about self defense. If you're the one openly carrying in a group of people, you're first one the bad guys would want to control/incapacitate. If you're carrying concealed, they won't know until it's too late for them. It could be argued that open carry serves as a deterrent, but I disagree.

I felt realy negative about the post at first, then Mike came along with his lady server story and the whole thing seems much more positive.

Quentin Tarantino's already working on the screenplay.
