Restaurant Owner Refuses Service to Anyone Who Owns an AR-15

Anne Verrill, owner of Grace restaurant in Maine, is refusing service to anyone who owns an AR-15 or even supports the idea of owning one.

According to The New York Times (NYT), Verrill used a Facebook post to alert customers and would-be customers that “anyone who owned a high-powered semiautomatic rifle similar to the one used in Orlando was not welcome in either of her two restaurants. That was not all: She would not welcome anyone who merely supported the idea of owning such a weapon.”

The backlash against her restaurant, and subsequent calls for boycotts, were instantaneous, and she pulled the post. But the NYT captured a screenshot of a portion of it prior to its deletion. In it, Verrill said, “Let me be clear, this is not a political issue. This is a human rights issue. If you own this gun, or if you condone the ownership of this gun for private use, you may no longer enter.”

It’s her business, so it is her right, even though that doesn’t seem to always be the case, especially if it is a liberal agenda issue.

It is also your money, and it is your right to spend your money when, how, and where you please. I am sure she will both lose and gain customers over this.

My question is this: how in the world is she going to know if you own an AR-15 and/or support their ownership? Is she going to spy on everyone in Maine’s Facebook or something?! Seriously.

What I’m trying to say is… she just got free advertising.

  1. Deacon you hit it on the head my friend about free advertising..Lib-Tards can be crafty that way….If I were you I would not even re-post stories like this for that reason, but it’s your blog and I will always be a fan!

    • I really toyed with the idea of not posting it. I actually sat on the article all day, but I kept getting emails about the story, so I decided to go ahead and post it and tell them what it is.
