Copy and Paste this email to write to your favorite restaurants to ask them to go gun free
Dear (Restaurant Owner),
My family always looks forward to eating out. But I now have to think twice before my family visits our favorite restaurants. That's because a law that took effect Oct. 1 allows customers to bring loaded concealed handguns into N.C. restaurants that serve alcohol.
Did you know that as a restaurant owner, you have a choice about permitting these weapons in your establishment? All you need to do is post a “conspicuous notice” that prohibits them.
A group of North Carolina moms and their friends has talked with several hundred restaurant owners in recent months. Nearly all agree that mixing guns, alcohol, and families is a terrible idea. Even though no one is supposed to drink while carrying a weapon, owners have seen too many bad situations and they don't want to put their employees or their customers in an unsafe position.
As a concerned diner, I hope that you will consider joining the growing number of restaurants that have prohibited firearms in their establishments. The law contains no specific requirements for a sign. You may make one yourself or purchase one. You can also download a sign and learn more about the law at ncgunfreedining.blogspot.com. If you have questions about what this law means for you, I would encourage you to speak with your attorney, your insurer and local law enforcement.
