If you thought Shiloh Brew & Chew was a Honkey-tonk, redneck bar that served up beer, Bourbon, sold chewing tobacco and had spittoons at every table, you would be wrong and a judgmental liberal. Welcome to one of Eastern Tennessee’s most safe restaurant.
In Fact ‘Shiloh Brew and Chew’ is a family restaurant in Maryville, Tennessee where the “Brew” stands for their coffee and the “Chew” for their food menu from burgers to steak to pizza and the owner, Sharma Floyd, believes in the Second Amendment with a sign posted outside that says, ”Guns are Welcome on Premises”. The owner of this Eastern Tennessee eatery put up the sign after she read an article about a store in North Carolina that put up a sign that said no weapons allowed and was robbed two days later. Sharma says that the patrons response has been far more positive than the lone negative one.
- When will the next one be? Where do these people get their ideas? What are we to do to stop it?

From Per Eugene Volokh at the Washinton Post …
So holds today’s Peruta v. County of San Diego (9th Cir. Feb. 13, 2014) (2-1 vote).
The court concludes that California’s broad limits on both open and concealed carry of loaded guns — with no “shall-issue” licensing regime that assures law-abiding adults of a right to get licenses, but only a “good cause” regime under which no license need be given — “impermissibly infringe on the Second Amendment right to bear arms in lawful self-defense.”
This comes as quite a welcome surprise as the 9th Circuit Court is hardly considered conservative leaning in its rulings.
As the NRO opines, in other words the decision states that, one has the right to carry a gun. The state can elect to recognize this by permitting either “shall-issue” concealed-carry or “shall-issue” open carry, but it cannot restrict or prohibit both.

Uber Lib Comedian Bill Maher Makes Mass Shooting Gun Joke at Country Music Awards in an Attempt at Humor
Just curious, who said that Bill Maher was funny?
As reported at the Politico, so-called liberal funny man Bill Maher said during his HBO program, “Real Time with Bill Maher,” that a mass shooting should take place at the Country Music Awards in response to the mass gay weddings performed at the recent Grammy Awards. Wow really, that was so funny I forgot to laugh. What is up with liberals fascination with violence, murder and death? What makes them so miserable, when it comes to a US Constitution, Bill of Rights Amendment that gives American’s the right to bear Arms? These are people who would rather have an unarmed people not be able to defend themselves and be at the mercy of thugs, punks and a criminal class.
Taking a swipe at conservatives on gun control, liberal comic Bill Maher joked that a mass shooting should take place at the Country Music Awards.
“Now that liberals have forwarded their agenda by inserting a mass gay wedding into the Grammys, conservatives must match them tit-for-tat by having a mass shooting at the Country Music Awards,” Maher said Friday during his HBO program, “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
Maher’s joke follows the mass weddings performed during the Grammys this past Sunday, in which both same-sex and heterosexual couples were married. Conducted as musician Macklemore and Ryan Lewis sang “Same Love,” it was widely viewed as a call for marriage equality.
PJ Media could not have stated it any better.
Tennessee, where the CMA show is held, has very liberal (in the best sense of the word) gun laws and a permit to carry a concealed handgun is relatively easy to get for law-abiding citizens. I don’t know if the venue where the awards are held — the Bridgestone Arena — has a posted ban on carrying firearms, but even if they do you can bet the bodyguards of country music stars suffer from no such restrictions.
In short, Bill Maher’s sick joke was not only idiotic, it displayed his towering ignorance of guns and the gun culture, as well as an inability to recognize the efficacy of intelligent gun laws.
Town Hall is reporting a record number of gun sales in 2013.
So much for Barack Obama and Democrats efforts to enact gun control and to diminish the Second Amendment. Democrats efforts for gun control have backfired because common sense Americans see what their agenda is all about and it is not safety or getting guns out of the hands of criminals, it’s gun control of law abiding citizens. When will Democrats understand that there is actually an Amendment that protects the right to bear Arms, not one for a right to bear Obamacare?
women are the fastest growing demographic of gun owners
The FBI has released new statistics on NICS background checks showing 2013 gun sales hit a new record. The total number of background checks conducted for gun sales last year add up to 21,093,273, beating the previous 2012 record of 19,592,303 by 1,500,970. Texas conducted the most background checks with 1,633,278. Kentucky came is second with 1,578,331 background checks conducted.
According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation and NBC news, women are the fastest growing demographic of gun owners.
Country Singer’s New Restaurant in Virginia, ‘Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill’ Sparks Second Amendment Controversy … “No Guns Permitted”
Second Amendment controversy erupts as ’Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill’ does not permit guns in establishment.
Once again we are presented with a situation that puts Americans on both side of the fence of the gun question. The country singer restaurant named after himself, ‘Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill’ in Woodbridge, VA has plunged into said gun carry controversy. The restaurant’s statement says, “It is our desire to provide a safe, enjoyable and entertaining experience for our patrons and staff.” Obviously, that is not a true statement because those who have carry permits and want to frequent this bar and grill do not feel safe or entertained. How does one provide a safe environment when only the bad guys would bring guns into the establishment, because as we all know, bad guys, thieves, robbers, thugs and punks don’t follow abide by the law or signs that say, “No guns permitted”.
A new restaurant that recently opened in Woodbridge is sparking a Second Amendment controversy, especially online.
The restaurant named for country music star Toby Keith has posted a “No guns permitted” sign on its front door and gun rights supporters are blasting the restrictions on the chain’s Facebook page. Some comments accuse Keith, who doesn’t own the restaurant, of being anti-gun.
Virginia is a right to carry state, which means residents can openly carry a firearm without a license.
The Facebook page of Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill in Woodbridge posted on Saturday:
“While we understand and respect every person’s right to own and bear arms, we at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill, with guidance from the State of Virginia and based on insurance regulations, have adopted a no weapons policy. It is our desire to provided a safe, enjoyable and entertaining experience for our patrons and staff.”
In the The United States, “We the People” have a US Constitution and a Second Amendment Right to bear Arms, shall not be infringed; however, private business owners also have a right to make certain guidelines for their places of business. Or do they? To read most of the comments from the anti-gun crowd show their ignorance and uninformed opinion of what is taking place. Virginia law specifically states that that an individual can carry a gun on to a premises that sells alcohol as long as the permit colder does not consume alcohol. If they do, any person granted a concealed handgun permit who is under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs while carrying such weapon in a public place shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.
Let’s see what happens when the bad guys bring guns into this establishment and rob the place knowing that it is a soft target and a gun free zone.
Some thing to think about … Isn’t it interesting that a business can discriminate against law abiding, gun carrying, Second Amendment, state law protected Americans and tell them to leave or not serve them, yet if that same establishment discriminated against the patron based on their skin color, religion or sexual orientation, they would be fined, closed down and possibly arrested for violating their civil rights?
Of course in the end, you have the right to protest this place of business with you wallet and go all “Duck Dynasty” on them. Eventually places of business will learn to understand who their customer really is and not be consistently fall in line with liberal, knee-jerk political correctness.
Sanford, FL To Ban Neighborhood Watch From Carrying Guns in the Wake of George Zimmerman Being Found Not Guilty in Death of Trayvon Martin
Imagine what would have happened if there was no gun
The city of Sanford, FL is going to ban neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying guns following the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Martin. Well that makes all the sense in the world that a man was found not guilty of committing a crime in a court of law by a jury of his peers and Sanford is basically going to act as if he was guilty. As stated at Legal Insurrection, Zimmerman successfully and lawfully defended himself against an attacker and possible real harm, maybe even death and Sanford passes a law banning neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying guns.
The city of Sanford is making major changes to its neighborhood watch program, including banning volunteers from carrying guns while on patrol, and forbidding them from pursuing anyone in their neighborhoods. Just curious, what are they allowed to do, watch the thugs rob, beat and kill people?
Pic Hat Tip – Legal Insurrection
Just months after George Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the Florida city where the incident occurred intends to ban neighborhood watch members from carrying guns, The Orlando Sentinel reports.
The ban on guns in Sanford, Fla. comes amid other changes, including formal training and volunteer registration, which will be announced in full at a meeting Nov. 5 at City Hall. Residents acting in a neighborhood watch role are also not to follow someone they deem suspicious, according to MSN News.
I am sure thugs, robbers and thieves are just wetting themselves with this news. So let’s understand this, if you are a neighborhood watch volunteer you can’t carry a gun, but if you are not, you can. Boy, there is some logic for you.
Win one for the good guys and conceal carry permit holders … Good riddance to bad rubbish!
Welcome to a robbers worst nightmare, a store owner with a concealed carry permit and a good shot. 31 year old Tavell Lawson is dead after he entered the Meador Pharmacy in Dumas, AR around 5:30 a.m. Friday and tried to rob the store at gun point. After the pharmacist initially retreated as Lawson demanded money, the pharmacist pulled his own concealed weapon and shot the masked gunman dead. So much for the individuals who want gun control and limit the Second Amendment.
