  1. Stopped in here today for a quick bite, the girl at the counter informed me after I had made the order for my son and I that I would have to put my firearm in the car or cover it up. We politely debated the issue and since my son was hungry I covered my firearm. When about to sit down the Owner/Manager Ron came out and told me that I had to leave or put my "weapon " in the car, I then politely stated the reasons why I would not just place my hand gun in the car and walk back in. A lively discussion was had with me telling him that I would just leave and not come back, I also informed him that if he did not want anyone carrying that he should post his door and w would not be standing and wasting each others time. His reasons are that the kids and parents complain, his lawyer told him that he did not have to post. I asked if he realized just how much gets carried in without him knowing and he did not have a real answer to this question, I asked him how he would handle a situation where someone complained of the way someone dressed and he replied with "I would ask them to leave or pull there pants up that this is a family place to eat. I also told him that I have been in other Culver's around the country and never had any problem. Ron was also telling me that he has had this same discussion with someone else in the last week, I understand that this person left after discussing the same points that I did. I called corporate to ask of their policy, all of the Culver's are privately owned and do not have to follow any policy according to the Woman on the phone. I left my contact number and then Ron called my cell to discuss even more, very long discussion from a transplant that that thinks gun laws are too liberal. I politely informed him over the phone that there would be no further business from me, my son or anyone else that I know. His closing statement, "please come by and see us". During this whole process I felt the pressure of being dragged or baited into a confrontational argument. Have a good evening folks. Culver's 9113 Kingston Pike Knoxville Tn.
  2. I will be going to an event at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum in 2018 and I am wondering what the current trend for conceal carry at this location is. Someone has carried concealed there a couple of years ago and it was a non event but I understand that it was a little on the warm side by not removing the jacket. It has been a couple of years since I have been to the coliseum and with the clearly unclear laws I would like some current opinions. Thanks in advance.
  3. Goats will lay on the ground and eat while being so full you think that they will burst open if they don't stop.
  4. The Confederate Statues being removed, normal comical thoughts and fun have became taboo in many circles. A business in Chicago starts a strict dress code and now they are racist and classist. Think about all of these things and put them together. How many of you call on a business when the flag is half staff and it should be full staff? look around at the flag displayed in your driving about, you may be surprised at how some are displayed, 3/4 staff does not qualify either. I like the political section, I checked out the thread and then would cruise a couple of other topics if they had any new comments.
  5. I liked the politics section as well, there were some funny things said and not so funny things being said but I did enjoy reading it. The political cartoons were a hoot! I don't care which side of the fence you sit on, there were some informative links scattered in the threads of discussion and there was enough of information to really make a person think.
  6. Waiting for the results and replies.
  7. I know someone that works in one of those places, that is one of those kinds of places where them kind of things never happen and this person made a comment that it is amazing what can be done with 3D printer.
  8. I was at the Johnson City Mall on company business and they have posted brand new gun buster signs and also stating as authorized by 39-17-1359. On the Dick's side of the mall the have a gun buster sign at the end of the hallway going into the mall but Dick's is not posted that I could see. I will have to go back and verify if the signs meet the 2018 law that is coming next year. These signs have just recently been placed, maybe in the last 3 weeks or so.
  9. To the stall I will go if available, if not I will stand slightly sideways while looking over my shoulder. I recently had someone to walk only 2 steps behind me into the restroom at a local store, I turned to face him and out the door he went.
  10. Funny that I ran across this thread. I just bought a 3 acre tract that has fence encroachment, one person bought a large parcel without doing a survey. While placing posts for the property line and pulling a string they were amazed that they did not own the field that I was stringing for fence, I will probably let them cut the hay off of it and pull the posts across the field. On the far end a fellow has a fenced in lot that encroaches about 3 feet for a distance of about 50 feet, I will have another discussion with him.
  11. This looks like the stuff that 3M made a few years ago, I used it on telephone cable for a permanent fix. I would open a foil bag, pour water in it and wrap it around the cable. Really tough stuff.
  12. Copied from Fox News: Lawmaker proposes requiring gun owners to register with insurance companies By Michael Bielawski ·Published February 03, 2016 · watchdog.org A bill introduced last week at the Statehouse would require gun owners to report their weapons to home insurance companies. The bill, H.709, is currently in the House Committee on Commerce and Economic Development, and it’s only in “short form.” This means it’s relatively simple and vague. “This bill proposes to require an insurer that writes homeowner’s insurance policies to require a policyholder to disclose to the company whether the homeowner or member of his or her household possesses a gun that is stored on the insured property.” State Rep. Thomas Stevens, D-Waterbury, one of the bill’s two sponsors, views the proposed legislation as a way to let the private sector regulate guns. “I believe it can be a free market answer to an important gun safety issue — let the insurance companies and banks decide what risks they need to consider when making mortgages and home owners insurance. Insurance companies ask lots of questions to determine that already.” Stevens’ bill is one of many gun control initiatives beginning to flood the Statehouse. Others include municipal gun laws proposed for Burlington, as well background check legislation, which failed last year.
  13. DING! DING! DING! Folks! We have a winner!
  14. Been hitting it for an hour now about every 20 seconds or so.
  15. I have been hitting it for 5 minutes and the counter is climbing. Hitting the NO button that is.
