“NO CONCEALED WEAPONS ALLOWED. If you are such a loser that you feel a need to carry a gun with you when you go out, I do not want your business. Douchebag.”

That’s the message Backstreets Pub & Deli recently sent to gun owners with a sign posted in its store window. The backlash against the establishment, located in Clemson, S.C., was swift after the conservative website Twitchy posted several photos of the sign from Twitter.

The Washington Times reports that the pub has a one-star rating out of five on Yelp.com, “with pages upon pages of negative comments and reviews by Second Amendment supporters.”

It is his place and he can ban if he wants to.

I personally don’t want people packing in my house or in my business either. I would not call them names though.

The Times has some of the reactions:

Deshaun, on Yelp, gave the pub a five-star rating.

“Advertisin’ that this place has no guns makes me and my homies want to go rob it at least five times a day,” he said.

“And if this crazy cracker tries to fight be we’ll be goin’ all Trayvon on his white mofo a$$.”

“Cya tomorrow, Peteyboy!”

Thank You! I always utilize this point when talking to my gun-control advocate family and friends. It makes some stop and think, but most stare silently for a second while the cognitive dissonance kicks in.

If you would call the police and wish for their 'protection' when you found yourself in danger or the victim of a crime... you are NOT anti-gun. You are a statist who believes the state should have a monopoly on arms and violence.

The second part, of course, is answering their question of "why does anyone need an 'assault weapon' or a high-capacity magazine? with "the same reason the police need them."

This bar owner is free to ban whomever he likes. Well, actually he's not... try banning gays/blacks/Jews or something and see what happens. But he should be free to ban whomever he wants if it's private property. He must then live with the consequences when people boycott his bar. Or when criminals decide he's an easy target for armed robbery.

At least he was brave enough to sign his name on the sign.

As a side note to this thread, imagine the attention this issue would probably be getting from the corrupt media if it concerned Christian-owned bakery refusing to make a cake for constitutionally unprotected gay “rights” wedding.

He doesn’t insult me, he does however communicate his

If he were being robbed, I would have to wait outside
to confront the perp.

Yeah, his PR skills are in negative territory. He’s entitled to his opinion, but there is no call for him to be a complete a$$hole expressing it. Typical of those people.

He can have his opinion, but no one is obligated to listen to him, agree with him, or patronize his business.

Yep. Always a plus.

Why bother? The perp would not be carrying concealed and would thusly be in complaince with the house rules.

Please name your business and cite its location, so those who carry concealed may oblige your desires.

I often miss those silly little signs businesses post.

Well Douchebag is another example of those who make “Mindnumbingly Stupid Statements”.
