‘NO GUNS’: PATRONS STUNNED TO SEE RESTRICTIVE GUN SIGN AT PRO-FIREARM COUNTRY MUSIC

A sign on a restaurant door that reads “No Guns Permitted” isn’t likely to turn many heads at most restaurants.

But when the other, bigger sign heralding the name of the establishment reads “Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill,” you can bet a few feathers are getting ruffled.

And indeed that’s one of the biggest reactions since the country music star’s restaurant opened last week in Woodbridge, Va., a Washington, D.C. suburb about a half hour south of the nation’s capital.

The big sticking point is that gun-rights advocates note that Virginia law lets citizens enter restaurants and bars with openly visible weapons;

IIRC, Toby Keith went Hollywood and swore allegiance to Obama in 2012. He’s been dead to me ever since.

This is one of the lesser things about Toby Keith that sucks in real life. He ain’t what people have been led to think. He’s quite an a-—hole.

“A DC suburb”

The metro-cowboys will patronize the place anyway.

In that part of the country all the bullshit is on the INSIDE of the boots.

Toby Keith: Obama isn’t a rock star anymore

Toby Keith was talking politics during an appearance on Joy Behar’s HLN show on Thursday.

“He was such a young rock star two years ago…” the singer said of President Obama. “You know, and now they`ve beat him down.”

“It`s a tough-ass job …” Keith said of the presidency, according to an online transcript. “Have you noticed that whoever takes it in our lifetime anyway, whoever takes the position, it doesn`t take them long to start aging, does it?”

When Behar mentioned that Obama is seeking another term, he replied, “Well, power to him. I`d have to take a pay cut.”

Keith, who described himself as a registered independent, said he approves of Obama’s performance as commander-in-chief but isn’t thrilled with the state of the economy.

“The military part of it has been wonderful,” he said. “The economy, though, because it`s what I`m worried most about — I know our military is going to be good. I see them every day. I worry most about the economy.”

I’ll hazard a guess here.

It’s a private business that has a right to conduct affairs in their best interest.

And you have the right not to patronize said business.

OK. I remember now. He comes out as a registered Dem, supported Obama in 2008, then gave some money to Perry to get people like me to like him again. I wonder what he gave to Prog Super-PACs in 2012?

Still dead to me.

If this restaurant is not already on the VCDL’s list of “gun unfriendly businesses” I’m sure it will be very soon.

“I’ve been a lifetime Democrat”

So there’s no way to tell what nuggets of lunacy lurk within his worldview.

Toby Keith is obviously a low information voter.

Poor Barry. “They’ve” beat him down...

And what’s with “The military part of it has been wonderful...l”?

What planet is this a-hole living on, anyway?

I still watch for the no guns signs.. if i see one, I go somewhere else. Sometimes, if I have time, I’ll go in and tell them why me and my money are going somewhere else.

Woodbridge, Va., a Washington, D.C. suburb about a half hour south of the nation’s capital.

Problem spotted.

It's time for people to stop pretending DC Metro is just another demographic area/market. Those politicians, bureaucrats, lobbyists, contractors and their ideological brethren have to sleep somewhere and in the New Rome ostentatious displays of political correctness are meant to curry favor with the government illuminati.

The Dixie Chicks are owed an apology. Toby Keith was a big part of their destruction over what they said. Seems to me like Keith has said some things much worse. One said they’re ashamed to be from the same state as the president. The other said Obama is the best thing since Clinton. If I had to choose, I’d be with the Chicks. And I never did like them.

“The other said Obama is the best thing since Clinton.”

Well, to be fair, he said the best Democratic candidate since Clinton, which boils down to basically “better than Al Gore”. Still a stupid statement, but maybe not as stupid.

In Woodbridge? I know where it is, maybe 1.5 miles from where I am now. Will avoid.

But , the brat, Natalie is trying to make a comeback...solo. lol!

She had to go into counseling (her friend, Howard Stern suggested it) because of what the country fans did to her, “the victim” according to her very few supporters.

How is her solo career going, you might ask?

Mother is the first solo studio album by American singer Natalie Maines, best known as the lead vocalist of the Dixie Chicks. It was released on May 7, 2013 with sales of 56,723 copies as June 30, 2013.

Woodbridge is outside the beltway, between Fort Belvoir and Quantico Marine Base. Quantico is also where the FBI Academy is located.

“Not many states permit concealed carry in an establishment that is 51% bar.”

In Virginia, we CHP holders are allowed to enter such places, but not to drink. This restriction DOES NOT apply to any law enforcement official, however. Go figure.

Sometimes you can tell just by looking at a person that he/she is a douche bag. Toby looks likes one.

I live in Nashville and have had occasion to learn things just around town which never get any further. I don’t listen to a lot of talk radio, but when Sean Hannity’s show opens with the clip from one of his songs, it gets on my nerves.
