The boy did his dang job. Denny's corporation policy says "no guns" well he did his job and maybe Denny's should change they're policy towards Law Enforcement.

Denny's spokeswoman Liz DiTrapano said in a statement: "Denny's policy permits law enforcement officials to carry their firearms in the restaurant, and we regret any misunderstanding."
Read the story folks, it's a non-starter that actually makes the police look bad - they're feelings got hurt for a brief moment and the chief overreacted.
Read it: www.latimes.com...
Next question - is there an election, is there a police budgeting issues in Belleville, Ill - will Denny's be donating to a police fund for new cop cars? It's all political folks - every damn thing with police.edit on 3-1-2013 by Jason88 because: (no reason given)

Under the Thursday, Oct. 17, headline "Bloodbath in Killeen," a story by Chronicle reporter Cindy Rugeley summarized what witnesses had seen: "He calmly and methodically strolled through the cafeteria, randomly shooting innocent people as they crouched under tables. Often he would stick the gun at a victim's head or body and fire."
Details related by shocked witnesses were sometimes incorrect. An unidentified Fort Hood soldier was reported to have thrown a chair through a plate-glass window, allowing 20 or 30 people to escape.
Actually, the heroic act was performed by auto technician Tommy Vaughn, who had thrown himself, not a chair, through the window. He was treated at the hospital for deep cuts on his shoulder.
Hupp had actually brought a handgun to the Luby's Cafeteria that day but left it in her vehicle because laws in force at the time forbade citizens from carrying firearms. According to her later testimony in favor of Missouri's HB-1720 bill and in general, after she realized that her firearm was not in her purse but "a hundred feet away in [her] car," her father charged at Hennard in an attempt to subdue him but was gunned down; a short time later, Hupp's mother was also shot and killed. Hupp later expressed regret for abiding by the law in question by leaving her firearm in her car rather than keeping it on her person. One patron, Tommy Vaughn, threw himself through a plate-glass window to allow others to escape. Hennard allowed a mother and her four-year-old child to leave. He reloaded several times and still had ammunition remaining when he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head after being cornered and wounded by police.

I look at those No Gun Signs this way..... I don't care to eat in a guaranteed safe working environment for Robbery and people going postal. Given their Corp response..it's not worth sending Emails or letters over ... but seeing that sign will insure I eat elsewhere and will every time I see one.

If the goal is to disarm the world in the name of peace, then the military, police and the like should be role models and turn in their weapons first! After all, if American citizens are disarmed, there should be need for cops to have weapons, right?
If we are to ban weapons, it should be all weapons. The leaders of the world should go first, then military, then federal agents, then cops and so on, right down to the last pea-shooter. If you expect the average American to go first, hold your breath till that happens, that in itself should solve the problem!
Criminals are a small minority in any age or country. And the harm they have done to mankind is infinitesimal when compared to the horrors—the bloodshed, the wars, the persecutions, the confiscations, the famines, the enslavements, the wholesale destructions—perpetrated by mankind’s governments. Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man’s rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.
