I once was a fan of Bennetts Bar-B-Que but since I found out they were anti gun I am no longer going to eat there due to that alone.
I encourge all whao are legal carriers of handguns to let them know how you feel. Either in talking to them, e-mails or phone calls.
Gun owners should not support any such establishment if at all possible.

Bennetts is anti gun. That is it plain and simple. Not trying to be smart or anything like that but it is I can't put any simpler.
Actions speak volumns.
I would still like to go there but I can't due to that fact.
I still think they have good bar-b-que though.

I don't think that they are that good myself plus they are over priced, I wouldn’t recommend them for that reason alone.

The anti-gun just puts the topping on the cake for me.

Bennetts is probably like alot of business that lease a building in which the building owner sticks signs on the door saying no guns, thats not the business fault, find out who ownes the building and call them.

They don't lease their buildings, they own them and if they are anti-gun then I want patronage them.

Why would any business want to be anti-gun these days? Do they have a sign posted? That's just inviting some psycho to come in and blow away everyone!

It is not illegal in the state of Tennessee to carry a gun where alcohol is sold. That was voted on in 2009 or 2010.
If an anti gun establishment wants to ban handguns they can but it is not state law.
So, they are anti gun. Plain and simple.

You are so hilarious. You should go on the road and make big money with your comedy routine.
I made an assessment of the situation for myself only. I have that right. I wouldn't make fun of you if you had an issue with a particular thing.
I would appreciate the same in return.
I still say they are anti-gun. Due to that I will not eat there anymore. I am sure they will lose no sleep over me but if more people would take a stand for the legal carrying of firearms and stop going to places that are anti-gun they may set up and take notice.
There are more of us out there than you think.
Please be kind. I am sure your parents taught you to be kind didn't they?

actully my parents taught me to call things as i see them..I myself hava a ccp. but i was taught respect and that respect is afforded to any and everyone that earns it. that establisment does not permit firearms in on thier properity as i would not allow you to bring your gun on my properity for the plain fact is i dont know YOU. you many be the very fanatic you complain about. and to not respect thier wishes makes you very disrespectful to thier wishes. there for you say you want eat somewhere you cant carry your weapon. is what scares me and most people bennetts and other establishment like thiers. dont want thier customers caught in a cross fire between you and your so called fanantic. yes those situations have and do happen . so i apoligize if my logic hurt your feelings are i step on your toes.. thank god it was on the internet or i might have got shot for my opinion. i mean since you want eat some where u cant tote a gun what would u do if i said something in person you didnt like. its been my experience and I DO HAVE the experience . when you carry a weapon you feel invincable not safer. you are in my opinon looking for trouble not trying to avoid it. but when the fanatic walks in you will try to be the hero and pull your gun and then it becomes the gun fight at the OK Corral. and with your i not going there without a weapon attitude i feel like i am more liable to be shot by you than the fanantic. 1 Fanantic and One Quick Draw Mcgraw. no one stands much of a chance. I personal will not sit next to a policeman for the fact he carrys a gun. because if i were the fanantic he would be the most threat to me. if you cant understand that way of thinking then i am sorry if you feel safer with a gun in your pants then that is your right but you are right about bennetts i am sure they wont miss you . like i said i do have my ccp and i have been threated by other ccp owners and I Was even shot by one right here in good ole gatlinburg. because of an accident i lost part of my left hand and 96 stitches and 2 years of therpy just to get 60% of the use of my hand. not a hard luck story just the plain damn truth so really your issue seams petty to me not to mention childish. thats not being disrespectful that is being honest. so you trying being honest you want a gun in your pants hoping for the chance your fanantic will walk in so you can be a hero.

Hooray for you and your opinion. I am not going to take the bait to start and argument with you as that would enforce your opinion of handgun permit holders as bing fanatic and hot heads. It won't work with me.
We will just have to agree to disagree on a subject that I brought up.
By the way just because you own a gun and have a CCP (ever what that is in Tennessee) doesn't mean you are pro gun. I have ran into your types before.
Have a good day.

Once a Fan. Just so you know a CCP is the same in every state is called a Conceled Carry Permit. surely. you have one. No Bait Just fact sorry the truth hurt. i wish you and the group of people like you that your were refering to nothing but the best of luck all of you. but i would appreciate a little kindness from you by not Profiling me as MY TYPE as you call it...your parents did teach you kindness didnt they. I have read they taught you no respect for other peoples rights or concerns, just your own.
I do have one concern. you said you would never enter an establishment were you couldn't carry you weapon. that mean you want go to a Church, a School, a Courthouse or any federal building for that matter. not a police station or fire department. lets change that from Federal to any Governerment Office. You did take the Conceled Carried Permit ClassDidnt You.since you used the word fan do you take your weapon to baseball games and football games. what about a hospital or a Doctor Office. Like i said you have no use for these type buildings since you have a gun in your pants. Your Invincable. as for me being Pro Gun as you call it. Im not Pro or Anti Pro anything im a member of my own feelings if you Mean am i a Member of the NRA well as a matter of fact I AM i do own many types of firearms and i am Professional trained on the use of each and every one of them and also have a FFL that is a Federal Fireams License.
i am a gunsmith and i will fight FOR YOU! the right to own and bare arms..but i will not however fight for your right to carry that weapon anywhere you wish and buddy let ME TELL YOU there are alot of Us out there as well. By us i mean the MY TYPE you referned to. just some advice when you have an opinon on something at least make sure it makes some sort of sense if you want people to take you serious. other wise you look like a Fanantic. good day MR. Once a Fan. even though you scare me. i will continue to fight for your right to OWN and Carry i just can't in good faith fight for your right to carry were you want to. because you dont have that right.
best wishes and again good luck to your group
Randy.

Randy:

For you information Tennessee has a Handgun Carry Permit. Not a Concealed Carry Permit. Do you know the difference don't you?
I carry in Church and several others I know including females. My buddy goes to a Church down the road and he carrys as does some women. His wife for one.
Yes I took the course and out shot everyone else there.
There were 14 or 15 in the class.
Now expalin to me how Tennesse has a Concealed Carry Permit.
If you actually have one take it out and read the Title of it.
Now I am going to ignore anything you write as I am not going to be drug down to name calling and inuindoes with the typical baiting your type does on the internet.
I will remain above the tactics you are trying to use.
I will go to Church tonite with a full size 1911 45 ACP in a waisteband holster under a jacket. Also a 70 some year old woman will be there with a 38 special in her pocketbook.
Now I will no longer respond to you since you have lowered the bar by being hateful, demeaning and condesending to me.
I am through with you.

Why would you want to carry a gun in Bennett's to eat anyway or any food business?? To look tough?? Keep your damn guns in your vehicle when you go in to eat.

Bub:

If you don't know I have a gun how is that making me look tough?
Explain that.
Why are you internet bullies so tough?
Have I even been hateful to anyone on here?
But if I carry in an eating establishment I am "Looking tough" but if I carry outside walking up and down the street I am not looking tough?
Explain that.
Why are you so mean, hateful and a tough?
Explain that.
