Denny's denies detectives
 
http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-cops-dennys-guns-20130103,0,6803203.story

the grand slam is way over-rated anyway....i could support a nationwide ban of the entire chain. Sounds like they're probably GFZ's on top of it as it is.

"...off duty" were the key words, so the manager should treat them just like any other customer.

Oh hell, it's Illinois. Nothing surprises me about Illinois. I'm surprised they still let cops have guns there.
As for Denny's, it sounds as though it's that incompetent manager who is the problem. I suspect he may be manning the fry station soon.
The "concerned patron" might want to get over themselves. Cops carry firearms, get used to it.
Bunch of bed-wetting morons.

yeah, cook or even dupage and lake county, we could expect this kind of bull, but I would never expect it that far south in rural Bellville, IL which isnt much different than rural kentucky or southern indiana with respect to attitudes towards firearms and their owners.

that poor manager is rightfully so gonna be crapping bricks the next time they get stuck up and he has to phone the police.:cool:

I thought Denny's was big on supporting the 2nd Amendment, wasn't there thread on here a couple of months ago about it?

Found one thread:

so now I am not sure what to think.

Well now the Chicago PD can now treat dennys as a dont call us we wont come and help.

Chief bans his detectives from going to Denny's? Who gave him that power over his officers? Overstepping his authority a bit? Is that constitutional?

I personally think it was an impressive show of courage for the manager to toss out the cops. I don't agree with his or her decision, but that showed some kind of brass! Could you imagine the reaction of the surprised cops?That would have been a Kodak moment. You have to applaud courage where ever it raises it's head! :)
