Why should that be hard to understand. Do you feel like those carrying weapons are not in control of their emotions or something?

I believe what he is trying to say is, if the manager thinks that someone with a gun is some sort of threat, it is stupid for them to approach such a person. Especially if the manager is unarmed.

I did not infer that the manager thought he was a threat, I read that the manager informed him that it was against policy and that he couldn't have it there.

I didn't say you inferred that. I'm saying that is what I believe Rocco was trying to get at.

I know that you didn't say that. I was trying to beat around the bush instead of coming right out and saying that I thought the comment was ridiculous. He was obviously addressing a policy issue, not sweating bullets fearing for his life or for an escalation of violence or some other negative result.

Guys, when it's a company-wide policy, it's useless to get mad at a manager or ask rhetorical questions like "Well why did he walk up to us if we're so dangerous?"

I understand your frustration, but he has no choice in the matter. It's his JOB that he's doing, that's it. He's got a choice between feeding his family or not. I am all for boycotting them, but don't get mad at a single manager because of a corporate policy.

Any of you heroes wanna own up to that one? :raisedbrow:



I think anyone on this forum knows better than to call the police to "save them" especially when it comes to a dispute over open carrying.

And my comment was simply to point out how silly a "no guns" policy is in a place where people don't seem put off by them at all. Is the manager in danger of losing his job if he allows someone to open carry in the restaurant?

BW3 is known nationwide for their strict anti-gun policy. Talking with corporate is a joke. They wouldn't even consider listening.

I'll second that. I know for sure that they are CPZs (Criminal Protection Zones) in Ohio and Virginia.
The only CPZ restaurant I know of in Charlottesville is the one BW3.

I tried out BWW a couple weeks ago. I was loosely concealing my XDm in an OWB with my shirt thrown over the top, as was my buddy. We weren't trying very hard to conceal but apparently nobody noticed.

I won't go back. Food wasn't that good. I liked the atmosphere, which may have drawn me back, but knowing that they are so anti just ends all possibilities of them receiving my business again.

I used to live back east and we would at at Buffalo Wild wings all the time. I was stoked when they finally put one in here.... until I actually ate there. For some reason, the food at the Lehi location just wasn't very good when I ate there. Back east they have GREAT wings, but here - not so much.


That's good to know... I used to go to BWW all the time in North Carolina, and was super excited when I was driving to Provo and saw the one go up in Lehi/AF... Guess I have two reasons not to go there... I'll stick with Wing Coop (and I'll have to check out Wing Nutz).

He quite possibly could be, especially if there were any sort of incident (good or bad) involving the guy with a gun and it attracted media attention. Remember that not too long ago, we had a thread about a scumbag who got killed during an armed robbery by an armed store manager, and the scumbags mom is suing the store because the managers bosses "failed to enforce the companies no firearms policies, thereby putting plaintiffs son in danger".

With companies, especially big companies, most policies are written by lawyers, who think in terms of only one thing: What policies do we need to be able to point to to prevent us from getting sued if something happens. As others have said... dont get mad at the manager. Hes just trying to keep his job.

As others have said, I won't get mad at the manager, I simply won't give them my business. However, the manager does have a choice. If he really disagreed with the policy, he'd be working somewhere else. He has the same choice we have, vote with your feet.

So...go ahead and get a little mad at the manager, just don't be a jerk and make us all look bad.

If you get mad at the manager for doing his job, perhaps something necessary to keep his job, then you are being a jerk.
