We interviewed the managers of many establishments because some places do not allow permitted concealed handguns even though they haven’t posted signs (many of the managers appeared unaware of state law).  There were a number of places that were not posted but where the managers were adamant that they would not allow permit holders inside.  Some went further and indicated that signs were going to be posted by the time of the NRA convention

Sound bad, but actually John Lott gives a long list of places where you can hang out after a long day of having fun. It kinds of saddens me that Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, one of the oldest and most iconic hangouts and IRRC, where I had my first shot of JD ever, decided to be stupid and ban people with cash to spend and guns.

  1. If you are a permit holder (in most states that’s a permission slip to break the law against carrying a concealed handgun) how the heck are they going to know if you are carrying unless they use metal detectors or start frisking folks (I wanna be frisked by the redhead girl over there)?

    We all know that as law abiding citizens signs and such will be respected, but if it’s not posted how are they going to know to refuse admission/service? How are we supposed to know we and our money are not welcome?

    Gun-hater logic. I hve difficulty following it.

    stay safe.

    1. Actually, when restaurant carry passed, Tootsies and other places downtown DID post guards with metal detectors at the front door, and then complained that the change in the law was costing them business. They kept the guards until they realized the law wasn’t going to change back.

  2. Everyone should get a good supply of “No Guns=No Money” cards to drop off at all of the places with signs posted. What would the owner think if he received several hundred of those cards. At average of 25 dollars per person, times say 600, that’s 15,000 bucks. You could be talking some real money over the 3 or 4 days that the convention goers are going to be in town. Sucks to be them.

  3. These business owners arent exactly smart. I mean if I had a business that relied on walk in customers, having 60-70 thousand people travel dozens/hundreds/thousands of miles to my city would be like, the best week ever. I’d find out why they were coming and post lots of signage saying I support whatever the heck they are there for. Unless its likely to scare off my regular customers such as like, I don’t know, a furry convention outside Vatican city or something. If that was the case I’d probably just buy a “funny” cat costume and hire someone to dance in it while waving my sign. If anyone asks I’ll say I’m thinking of getting a mascot, AND it brings in the furry money.
