Skip to comments.No firearms policy at Toby Keith restaurant draws ire of gun rights advocates

A policy at a new restaurant owned by country music star Toby Keith has some gun owners singing the blues.
According to WTTG Fox 5, Keith's new restaurant in Woodbridge, Va., displays a sign on the front door that reads, "NO GUNS PERMITTED."
Virginia is a gun-friendly state, the station reports, and citizens are allowed to openly carry a weapon into a bar or restaurant, as long as it's clearly visible. State law does, however, reportedly prohibit most citizens who are legally carrying a concealed weapon from consuming alcohol, but they are also allowed to go into a bar or restaurant.
Eatery owners are allowed to have a "no firearms" policy, which is the rule at Keith's restaurant.

A sign isn’t going to stop me anyway. What they don’t know won’t hurt them.
It’s their business. They have a right to run it anyway they please.
The Luby’s (Cafeteria) massacre was a mass murder that took place on October 16, 1991, in Killeen, Texas, United States. George Hennard (October 15, 1956 October 16, 1991) crashed his pickup truck through the front window of a Luby’s Cafeteria, shot 50 people (killing 23), exchanged shots with responding police, and then hid in a bathroom and fatally shot himself.
A tempest in a teapot.

I agree - I was just in Toby Keith’s restaurant in Orange Beach, AL, a couple of months ago and didn’t see that sign at their entrance. BTW, the food was really good and the staff very friendly! The only problem I had was there was no gift shop so I could buy an “I Love This Bar” t-shirt...LOL
Evidently it’s NOT Toby Keith’s restaurant - he doesn’t own it .... there is a ‘no guns permitted’ sign on the door.
And people have the right to stay away in droves
My philosophy exactly.(I didn't notice the sign...)
Toby Did support the fraud in the white hut twice. I have no use or appreciation for his type.
I wonder if the Dixie Chicks are welcome.
But it will hurt you if someone becomes aware of your weapon.
IIRC, a women left her pistol/revolver in her car because they didn’t have a carry law at the time. The massacre was the main reason the passed one in TX.
I don’t spend my money in businesses which don’t support my right to carry on their property.
Another stupid business, who could have just done nothing, but instead waded into politics and angered a good percentage of their potential customer base. Idiots.
Many C&W stars are closet (or NOT in the closet) Libs.
Love your music Willie.....but not yer political stench.
It would only result in me being asked to leave which I would. I will never happen anyway because the way someone will become "aware" of my weapon is once it's too late for them to do anything about it.
