Toby Keith’s new restaurant in Woodbridge has become a target in the latest dispute on gun control.
The restaurant, which only opened last week, displays a “NO GUNS PERMITTED” sign on the front door, according to MyFoxDC.
While Virginia law allows weapons to be openly carried in a bar or restaurant, owners may ban them from private businesses.
Facebook has erupted over the issue, with one patron saying she’s “disappointed” and believes the no guns policy announces to criminals that “anyone leaving your establishment is likely completely defenseless and easy pickin’s for a robbery.” That poster said she will not patronize the new Toby Keith restaurant.
Another person wrote on the restaurant’s Facebook page: the no guns policy is “sad” and it creates a “more dangerous environment.”
The manager of the new restaurant declined to be interviewed…
