Buffalo Wild Wings’ No Gun Policy Leaves Police Without Service

In what I can only say is an ironic situation, Prince William County Police officers, who were on duty in plain clothes with their firearms showing, strolled into local Buffalo Wild Wings and were reportedly refused service because the restaurant has a policy expressing it as a “gun-free establishment.”

According to the Manassas Patch,

The group walked into the Buffalo Wild Wings located near Wellington Road and Market Street, but were refused service by an employee who said they had to secure the guns before they would be served.

The officers had their badges displayed but still weren’t served.

Scott Lupton, the general manager of the Manassas Buffalo Wild Wings location, sent an email to LaClair, apologizing for any confusion caused by the incident, which he calls a “huge misunderstanding.”

Daryl LaClair wrote a letter to the restaurant chain’s headquarters to raise public awareness due to the incident.

Mr. Lupton said he was not there when the incident occurred. “… There is no reason why those officers should have been asked to leave … police officers are always welcome in my establishment and even though we do have a no gun policy, as a company that excludes off duty police officer,” Lupton wrote. “As a company we are community oriented. We appreciate everything that police officers do for us.”

He has made attempts to reach the police department to apologize, but was unsuccessful in personally contacting the officers who came to BWW.

At the end of 2012 the Inquisitr reported on the policy of Buffalo Wild Wings:

Buffalo Wild Wings’ no guns policy has some patrons extremely angry. The restaurant reportedly believes that patron safety is enhanced when no one is packing while chowing down on some tasty wings and a cold drink.

Concealed carry permits make it legal to take a weapon into many public areas, but private property owners retain the right to post a no guns allowed on premises sign if they so choose. Buffalo Wild Wings representative Peter Helfrich explained the decision to prohibit gun during an interview with WHPTV:

“We want everyone to have fun but we want to keep everyone safe.”

483199_577944395556731_336304060_nThe problem is that they assume that patrons with firearms make the place more dangerous than safe. That is merely an emotional argument, but not grounded in fact.

“For this to have happened at all is just absurd,” LaClair wrote in an email.

I agree it is absurd, but even more than that, the fact that Buffalo Wild Wings doesn’t allow you to bring your firearm in as a law abiding citizen, but will allow police officers in says to this author that they don’t want my business and just like my future relationship Starbucks, they shall not receive it.

By the way, they are getting hammered on their Facebook page over this. I just wish people were more upset over the company’s decision to keep ban law abiding citizens with firearms.
