Of course a restaurant has the right (or should have) to ask a customer to leave if that customer makes other people feel uncomfortable. In this case an anti-gun person would ask the armed person to leave and a gun supporter would ask the anti-gun person to leave. Which would you ask to leave?

I would explain to the uncomfortable person that these were just police detectives having lunch, and if she didn't want to eat in my place as a result, i would understand.

Then I would then explain to the detectives that if they wanted to eat in my place they would need to keep their stuff concealed.

Bingo --

If the detective had followed police policy and kept her weapon concealed this entire incident would never have occurred.

At the same time general police policy is that officers, even when they are off duty, are supposed to have their weapons handy where they can be easily accessed.
