I would estimate that half of Nashville restaurants have no carry signs. I am curious how they can afford to turn away a substantial portion of potential customers, both those who carry and those in the same group with them? Is business so good that 15% or so of potential business can be just driven away for ideology?
Some of the signs aren’t pictograms but rather coy text plaques along the lines of “we respect the rights of gun owners, but you aren’t welcome here.” Even if postings were not enforceable by law (which they are in TN), I wouldn’t give my business and money to bigots. I have contacted a few restaurants with emails and photos of receipts from their competitors, but they don’t seem very concerned. I am curious why. I doubt that many people pick eateries on the strength of seeing a carry prohibition, while the reverse is pretty common.
