Restaurant Owner: Business Up With 'Guns Are Welcome' Sign On Front Door

A Maryville, Tennessee restaurant owner says her business has only increased since she posted a “Guns Are Welcome” on the front door.

Owner Sharma Floyd said she posted the sign after a restaurant in Durham, North Carolina posted a “No Weapons, No Concealed Firearms” sign and was subsequently robbed at gun point.

According to CBS Charlotte, Floyd said: “And that got me to thinking. I lost a whole group of motorcyclists because they thought I didn’t allow weapons. But I believe it’s okay to carry as long as you have a permit.”

She added: “As the owner, I wanted to stand my ground. I have that constitutional right. If you like it, that’s great, if you don’t, I’m sorry for you. I can’t change who I am.”

She said the supporters of her sign have far-outweighed the “one person who really gave [her] a lot of grief over it.”

The name of Floyd’s restaurant is “Brew and Chew.” The brew she sells is coffee, the chew is food, and customers with concealed carry permits are welcome to eat while armed.
