From the gun grabbing State of Illinois.
" 'Be a shame if sump'n was to happen to it..."
An employee or a patron?
Or the manager?
I actually think this is great and wish more people and restaurants would do this, especially in States where Citizens are prevented from owning or using firearms. Do these “officers” enforce tyrannical laws in direct defiance of what the Constitution says?? YES THEY DO. Then tell the Jack Booted Gang Bangers to go somewhere else. Maybe I will start eating at Denny’s again.
What if this is an opening move, such as....
You people take away our rights to arm and defend ourselves and we in turn decide not to serve you food anymore unless you do the same.
Dumb, dumb, dumb and dumb! Wouldn’t a manager of a restaurant want armed law enforcement eating in their restaurant or getting a cup of coffee? Sounds like the manager has declared “open season” on his/her own restaurant. From my understanding, many establishments like 7-11, give cops free coffee and access to the employees restrooms. Why? Police presence deters crime. DUH!
If she and the other detectives could have had the common sense to have their pistols concealed, there would not have been an issue.
I hope they get robbed once a week...... or more!
It’s going to really be a pain when the Libs in Illinois start to ban Knives and Forks. I wonder if You’ll have to get a permit to be able to cut up some pancakes or go to the same black market that you get lightbulbs? LOL
I was at PDQ in Tampa over the holidays. There were 5 well-dressed men and women at two tables wearing guns on their belts. They had badges on a leather background around their necks on a chain. I assumed that the prominently displayed badges were to stop the patrons from panicking at the open carry. I decided right then and there that PDQ is the place I want to eat. (I conceal carry and never let anybody see the gun as Im afraid theyll go nuts. )
They may as well put up a sign saying “FREE CASH FOR DIRTBAGS”. Good luck with that next 911 call fellahs!
Denny's Investor Relations:
Is that the Denny’s where Shaniq’qi’q’wah beat up a waitress?
I’ll bet that waitress would have LOVED it if an armed officer of the law had been sitting in the next booth!
Here are a few videos of the antics of Denny’s customers.
Only idiots would want to run off cops, given past history at many Denny’s.
“Hey, the cops can have guns, but we can’t? Get out!”
On the one hand, yes this was stupid.
On the other hand, so police are just better than everyone else? They can have a firearm but everyone else can’t be trusted with such power?
No, everyone should be the same.
Except for felons.
And pedophiles. To hell with them.
And Canadians. (I’m just kidding.)
You know what...
I am so sick and tired of people’s OVER REACTIONS to seeing a gun!
The liberal/progressives have done a damn good job of turning the 2nd Amendment into a freaking crisis.
The proper response, especially if it was known to restraunt personnel these were cops, should have been ...it is their Right and DUTY. Yeah...lock the gun in the unmarked car out front. We’d all be screaming at how freaking stupid that move was when the car gets stolen or broken into.
Criminals take note - there is a 0% probability that a police officer will be in that Denny's location in the event of an armed robbery.
Ticking off the police isn’t good business practice. Especially for a 24-hour restaurant.
Two things will happen - they’ll lose business, and the level of police service will probably drop off a bit.
Are you telling me that the Belleville police don't have a set policy about how detectives out of uniform are to carry and display their weapons after all these years???
And are you telling me that said policy is in conflict with a restaurant that is only two blocks away and obviously frequented by police and detectives???
Something here makes no sense.
And btw a badge clipped on the belt where it cannot readily be seen or hung around the neck and usually tucked inside the shirt doesn't make you a uniformed officer. You are either on duty or you are not. You are either a uniformed officer or you are not. Make up your mind.
