Let me tell you a little story about a small Pub & Grill in South Carolina.
The establishment or at least the owner made a decision to not allow concealed weapons inside. So the owner created one hell of a sign for his business and promptly displayed it in the window.
You may read about it right here:
Now I do understand that this is still a hot issue to discuss but I don’t think that it matters what side you are on about guns and gun control and whatever. The fact remains that the sign calls those people who wish to carry a concealed weapon a loser…. as well as a douchebag.
Uh oh… I smell trouble. He done gone and did it. And pissed off a majority of those who own guns and who decide that carrying a concealed weapon is their Second Amendment right according to the United States Constitution. And basically his First Amendment rights of expressing how he feels on the topic went out the window right after he started calling certain groups of people names. Had he not called them a loser and a douchebag, then this wouldn’t be getting as much attention as it is.
So as you can see, people are extremely pissed off. And I think it has more to do with the public display of insulting name calling rather than the Second Amendment issue of whether or not to carry. After all, it is his choice of whether or not he wants concealed weapons inside of his pub. But there are proper and more official signs that this owner can get hands on instead of being this passive-aggressive person.
Yelp is flooded with unhelpful comments and negative reviews. This business is probably going to go down in flames pretty fast, if the owner doesn’t either change the signs to a more official sign or publicly apologize for their actions.
People on the Internet are deeply, deeply cruel. These people will not relent I am sure.
Let this be a lesson to everyone out there who runs or owns a business. Adding insults and name calling will only cause you more anguish and hardship. Its just not worth pissing off your future customers. Because its the general public that you are pissing off and its the general public that will decide whether or not they want to go spend their money at your place.
This guy is probably going to go down with the ship. If it survives, then it survives based on the business given by people who share the same opinion and viewpoints about guns.
But still, what a pity when the mouth opens and crap flies out!!
