If you never go to Buffalo Wild Wings, it’s probably too soon.
At least until they strike their corporate policy against guns in their stores.
How serious are they about this policy?
Serious enough to ask eight on-duty, plain-clothes police officers to leave their restaurant in Manassas, VA because their guns were visible. It didn’t matter their badges were also plainly visible.
It wasn’t until news of the ejection of the police officers swept social media outlets and the restaurant was taking all sorts of condemnation from regular Americans did the restaurant manager step in and claim it was all just a “huge misunderstanding”.
They just got caught this time.
MANASSAS, VA (Manassas Patch) — Eight police officers were refused service at Buffalo Wild Wings on Wednesday, apparently because they had their weapons displayed.
The Prince William County Police officers were on duty, but were in plain clothes, said Daryl LaClair, a Prince William County resident who wrote a letter to the restaurant chain’s headquarters and started a public awareness campaign regarding the incident.
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.
