    Tell that to Civil Rights Act "64 , which extends civil rights to all public accommodations .
    Then I guess they can't charge you with trespassing... Want to be the 1st test case?

    Someone who understands the situation fully… will be eventually.

    The issue now, is that not enough people fully understand it.

    I expect legal advice threads popping in the days to come. When the "I know my rights" folks realize the reality. :innocent0

    Funny that… so many folks know their rights… but can’t seem to find a clue about their responsibilities to preserve those rights.

    But they don't have a right to infringe on 2A..... at least if you break it down....
    Yeah, actually, they do. The 2A pertains to the acts of the federal government, not private citizens or private enterprises. The 14th A extends some (but not all) of those limits to state and local governments. A business can prohibit carry on its property by anyone (except government officers). A landlord can do the same, as can an "innkeeper," the customary term for hotels and restaurants.

    Constitution stops at private property line.
    Incorrect.

    Or… as it actually happened in Texas.
    Lady saw the sign, left the pistol in her car.
    Went in and sat down to eat, with her father.

    Then helplessly watched in horror, as the person who came in to rob the restaurant, shot and killed her father.
    Good memory. I read her book but right now I can't remember her name.

    They won't go out of business, that's for sure.

    I find it funny, people who scream Freedom! Freedom!, hate people who exercise their freedoms.

    My son went to a restaurant with several friends. He removed his hoodie at the table and in the process the owner saw his handgun. The owner called the police and proceeded to sit near them with his shirt pulled up to reveal his own handgun. The police arrived and asked for my son’s ID and permit. The police then left and they finished their meal.

    My son informed his friends and family. And none of us ate there again. It went out of business in less than 6 months. We like to think it was because of us.

    MY Question not so much Restaurant- But Hotel/motel to stay the night. I'm going to be in North Carolina Sept.

    CARRY/POSSESS AT A HOTEL?​

    Can you carry or possess a firearm on hotel property in North Carolina?

    It is a crime for any person to knowingly carry concealed on or about his person on any private premises where notice that carrying a concealed handgun is prohibited by the posting of a conspicuous notice or statement by the person in legal possession or control of the premises. The individual hotel should be contacted to inquire about it's concealed carry policy. See the Handguns at Hotels page for additional information.
    [N.C. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 14-415.11(c)(8)]

    If I call ahead or send email.

    While it seems like you can sue almost anyone for almost any reason,
    So true. Saw an article today where woman is suing Nike and a store because her son was killed during a scuffle at a Nike shoe reveal at his place of work. Apparently a handful of the sneaker heads thought they should have won the raffle. This guy was concerned about the safety of his GF... Woman claimed "sneaker violence" and Nike should have security etc at these events....

    Also... please remember that if a handgun is stolen or lost (don't ask me how you loose a gun unless it really is in a boating accident), you have 72 hours to report it to MSP, or you yourself are guilty of a crime (as of 10/1/2013).
    Every now and again, I find a gun I forgot I had.
