Fallout from ORA opposition to Restaurant Carry bills
This is, of course, exactly the kind of thing that ORA wanted to avoid by keeping the law as-is. If House Bill 45 or Senate Bill 17 are passed they can easily keep guns out of their establishments by posting ‘gunbuster signs’ but they know they’ll be alienating gun owners by doing so. So rather than face the loss of business to competitors who choose not to post such signs, they want the plausible deniability of ‘just following the rules.’
An organized boycott by gun owners upset at the ORA’s opposition to Restaurant Carry has the potential to cost the ORA member business even more revenue than posting.
I don’t do Facebook, for various reasons, but those of you who do can join the Boycott the ORA Facebook page. If you are like me you can take the more direct approach. Ask whatever restaurant you are thinking of going to if they are an ORA member, and if they are, tell them you won’t be eating there as long as their organization opposes the Restaurant Carry legislation.
