Toby Keith was for guns before he was against them
Now others have pointed out that Mr. Keith isn’t the manager of the restaurant. And it’s probably the case that he’s simply licensing his name to the restaurant’s owners. However, if he’s really a friend to gun owners, it’s hard to imagine a way to justify making that sort of agreement with people who so clearly bear hostility toward a sizable part of his fan base. CHP holders in Virginia are permitted to carry in establishments that serve alcohol, provided that they don’t drink; so any argument that the restaurant is merely banning an illegal activity is simply wrong. The restaurant’s management is banning legally carried firearms because they want to.
Now the question for Toby Keith is this: Are you OK with this? It is, after all, your name that’s hanging over the door.
(And by the way, silence generally signals acceptance. I only mention this because it’s been more than a few days since this story first broke.)
