I strongly believe in property rights. The government, federal or state, has no right to interfere. That is why state smoking bans upset me.

I am not allowed to carry at work. I am the manager. But there is a rule in the employee hand book that predates me. The owner knows that I have a permit. He knows that I carry everywhere else. But he told me that he would prefer that I not carry at work. I do not carry in the building.

I have had several scary things happen at work. I have legitimate reasons to want to carry at work but still don't do it. If I am killed at work, while being denied the opportunity to carry a gun that I have been trained for and licensed to carry, I imagine my wife will become very rich with the help of a good lawyer.

I live in a very pro-gun state thankfully.
Armed robbery is a DIFFERENT story. THAT is a defensive shootable offense in MOST places. Nashville is NOT exclusive to that kind of crime by ANY means.

It is the same as if they said No towel heads or no blacks. It is their place if they choose to not do business with a specific section of people no matter how wrong it my be it is their choice.

You make your choice with your wallet and they will soon go the way of the dodo.

If a restaurant was smoking we didn't go there. On the other hand I would not smoke in the house or in side a building. To me it was wrong to force my nasty bad habit on to someone else that didn't smoke. I am sorry there is no reason you can't sit down to a meal and not smoke do you not sleep 6 to 8 hours with out smoking right.

I agree 100% with the owner's choice of doing business (metabolic rates during sleep v. activity is another story).

If a business owner chooses to smoke/drink/curse/spit etc while receiving patrons, it is the choice of the owner. Gubmit has no business getting into the owner's business. The free market at the consumer level will decide the fate of the owner's business.

LOL! I think it'd stir a much bigger sh*tstorm if they posted a sign barring towel heads or blacks.

Of course it would cause a sh!t storm. Then they would either A: change policies or B: go out of business. If the government can start telling a PRIVATE business what to do then it is not a big step before they start telling you what you can do in a private residence.....

On a business trip to NC, I just encountered a hotel with a "No firearms" sign. With wording that made it clear it applied to CCW permit holders. Left my piece in the car. Asked to speak to the manager. Advised him I had a reservation for the next 3 nights that HE had just canceled by his policy that was not made known at the time I made my reservation- and that me, my sidearm, AND MY MONEY were going to another hotel. I also filed a complaint with the hotel chain (Platinum member of their rewards program)

They are free to do what they like with their property. I am free to do what I like with my money- and I will make sure they understand that their choices carry consequences.

Quoted for truth. IMO the perfect way to get the message across. Nicely done!

In my hotel it is only the empoloyees that are not allowed to carry. The guests may do so. That is one reason I feel discriminated against. I don't like to have to hope there is another ccw around.
