If you want to commit business suicide this is exactly how you do it. You post a sign that makes fun of gun owners and calls them losers and then expect to get their business.
An anti-gun sign never made anyone safer, but a certain pub in South Carolina though it would be a great idea to post the sign in the picture above in its window. After all, this would keep any armed criminal from even darkening the door while the helplessly disarmed people inside would be perfectly safe right?
But rather then just say that concealed weapons were not allowed, the owner decided to go a step further and make fun of gun owners.
According to the Washington Times,
“NO CONCEALED WEAPONS ALLOWED,” the sign warns. “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.”
One Twitter user commented: “When do the going out of business specials start? I know a sign spinner that is available.”
Terri, on Yelp, gave the pub a one-star rating.
“Not allowing law abiding permit holding background checked conceal carry permit holders into your establishment is begging for criminals to come in and make an easy target out of you,” she said.
“So, you would even insult the soldiers that fought for your freedom and right to post that offensive sign?” asked Tim, who also gave one star. “Would you say the same thing to a police officer? I guess you have the right to be an idiot as well. God bless America, the Constitution and the Second Amendment.”
The owner of the pub, who would only give the name Pete, describes himself as a conservative Democrat, not the “big-ass liberal” people are painting him to be.
Pete told The Washington Times that he’s a big supporter of gun rights and has had a concealed weapons permit since 2001, but doesn’t feel guns have any place in a college town.
“There are cops everywhere. Cameras everywhere. Guns have no place here in a college town,” he said.
As far as the sign, which was apparently only temporary, Pete said he regretted the language he used.
I’m sorry I used that language,” he told the Times. “It just came out wrong because I was frustrated.”
Pete said the local community has rallied behind his pub, but the national backlash has caused him to take his phones off the hook.
