Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill opened in Potomac Town Center in Woodbridge, Virginia, this week with a sign on the door: “No guns permitted.”
This, even though Virginia laws allow a person with a concealed carry handgun permit to carry a gun “onto the premises of any restaurant or club” which has a license to sell alcohol, provided the permit holder does not “consume an alcoholic beverage while on the premises.”
According to InsideNova.com, numerous would-be patrons “posted their displeasure with [the no-gun] rule on the restaurant's Facebook page” on December 23. On December 24, all the posts complaining about the rule “had been deleted.”
One of Toby Keith's biggest country video hits is “Bullets in the Gun.” It romanticizes carrying a gun.
