I certainly never would have expected this from Toby Keith.
Toby’s I Love This Bar and Grill opened in Woodbridge, Virginia this week with a sign on the door: “No guns permitted.” The gun friendly state of Virginia allows a person with a concealed carry handgun permit to carry a gun “onto the premises of any restaurant or club” which has a license to sell alcohol, provided the permit holder does not “consume an alcoholic beverage while on the premises.”
According to InsideNova.com, there are plenty of would-be patrons who “posted their displeasure with [the no-gun] rule on the restaurant’s Facebook page” on December 23.
One user wrote, “That sign on the door means that I will never try your restaurant … It is a cultural thing among we Americans … It is the fact that you seek to restrict a Constitutional Right that bothers the public. This is what will cost you.”
Another user commented, “I am now ashamed to say I was ever a fan of yours [T]oby. You truly are a hypocrite.”
On December 24, all the posts complaining about the no gun rule had been deleted.
