You're opposed to informing people which restaurants are hostile to gun owners?
You are putting words in people's mouths. Read my previous posts where I say I actually like the list, not the insane commentaries that go along with them.
Not wanting guns in your place is different than being hostile to gun owners.
Most restaurants don't allow you to bring dogs either. Would you phrase this as "being hostile to dog owner's"
Even the name of the list "Gun owner unfriendly" is odd.
I own a gun, and none of those places are unfriendly to me.
some choice quotes from the list:
... has decided to ban all guns in his restaurant. One has to wonder how many people have been harmed at his restaurant, and on the way home by firearms, as contrasted with the number harmed as a result of the alcohol he serves?
Way to win friends and influence people guy.
... has taken the unfortunate decision to ban legally carried handguns. They, like so many other people who lack the ability to use logic at all
Ah yes, insult people, that will change their minds.
Still, now that I know they don't like us, I will be voting with my feet and not patronizing their restaurants, with gun or without.
Don't like us
? Starting to get into cult indoctrination techniques here.
There is even contact info for property owner's posted with the not so subtle invitation to harass them into changing policies.
Any place that doesn't allow guns is considered anti 2nd amendment, or gun hating, or hostile to gun owner's to the head of the vcdl and this has apparently filtered down to its members. Its a very strange leap of logic and comes across like an extremist group.
I can't go into most of those places barefoot either.
Maybe I should start a list of places I can't enter barefoot. For each establishment I'll call them foot haters, or anti pedestrian or something and write them angry letters to post online saying they don't want my footed brother's business.
Now if really wanted to do this I'd post a simple list saying "Barefoot Not Allowed Here" and list the places. Short and sweet. No need for petty bickering.
As far as I can tell the vcdl puts their right to firearms above above the rights of other property owner's and until I see proof to the contrary I just won't be joining. No biggie. Not a loss to them or me, although respecting property owner's rights might just land the vcdl more members.
In its current state its just not a group I want to be associated with.
