Bumper Sticker Of The Day…

“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.” ~Ayn Rand *************************************************** In the battle between good intentions vs. unintended consequences….UC always win. ~Sharon

    Guns make us less safe, but sending F-16s, Abrams tanks and SAMs to radical islamists makes us safer, right?

    I’d bet all of those Secret Service agents are carrying more than one gun…and how many guns are in the limo?

      The Secret Service agents guarding Ted Kennedy during his presidential campaign left an M-16 and ammo under the bed in a resort condo a friend of mine managed. He shot up all the ammo, called the SS and they came and retrieved the rifle. So the SS guarding Zero very likely have assault rifles in the limo.

    Belleville police have less than a sunny-side-up view of a local Denny’s.

    The police chief there banned his officers from the eatery while on duty after several detectives were told they couldn’t carry their guns in the restaurant, but Denny’s says the incident stemmed from a misunderstanding.

    The scramble of events began about 10 a.m. Tuesday when five Belleville detectives went into the Denny’s at 1130 South Illinois Street, ordered food and began to eat. The detectives had badges on their belts or on chains around their necks, but weren’t in uniform.

    Belleville Capt. Donald Sax said restaurant manager David Rice then approached and told one of the detectives that a diner had complained about seeing one of the detectives carrying a gun.

    Even though the detective told Rice all at the table were police officers, Rice insisted the detectives take their guns back out to their cars, Sax said.

    According to Sax, Rice then told the officers that it is company policy to allow only uniformed officers to carry their guns into a restaurant and that a sign on the door stated that policy.

    The officers all got up to leave, refusing to pay for their meal. As they were leaving, Sax said a Denny’s general manager, Michael Van, approached the group to hash out the problem. He told them Rice was wrong and it was fine for them to stay and to keep their guns.

    The detectives, whom Sax described as “embarrassed” by the incident, decided to leave anyway. Sax said the detectives made it a point to check the door on their way out.

    “There was no sign on the door (regarding firearms),” Sax said. “They all looked for it.”

    Belleville Police Chief William Clay delivered the next course and issued an order to his troops, banning them from eating at that Denny’s when they are on duty or when they’re off duty and still in uniform. Off-duty and out of uniform, officers can eat where they want.

    Belleville police also issued a press release, naming the managers and pinning the incident on “political stupidness.”

    “This was an insult, a slap in the face to those detectives and to all of the men and women who proudly wear the uniform or badge and serve in law enforcement,” Clay said in the press release.

    Of course, officers will still show up if Denny’s calls for some kind of emergency, police said.

    The Denny’s managers, Rice and Van, were not available for comment. Corporate spokesperson Liz DiTrapano called the situation “a misunderstanding” and said there is no ban on armed officers.

    “Obviously, all law-enforcement officers are permitted to carry their firearms in our restaurants,” she said.

    Belleville police said they would be following up with Denny’s management about the restaurant’s policies.

      If I was in any public or private place of business and saw a uniformed or undercover officer I would EXPECT them to be carrying and if anyone has a problem with that expectation than they should leave and not the person that is serving his duty as Peacekeeper.
      I hope every LE officer will stay away from Denny’s as a point to them and any other progressive idiot running another business. In another words Denny’s has just put out the welcome sign to scum to please rob them since we are a gun free zone.
