Toby Keith could be in some hot water with his fans through his association to the “I Love This Bar and Grill”. One of these restaurants in Woodbridge, Virginia has begun banning weapons. Since Virginia is a state where it is legal for people to bring their guns into establishments, this outraged those who were met at the door reading “No Guns Permitted”. Now of course this has stirred up both sides of the argument on gun control.

Management responded with this statement:

“While we understand and respect every person’s right to own and bear arms, we at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill, with guidance from the State of Virginia and based on insurance regulations, have adopted a no weapons policy. It is our desire to provide a safe, enjoyable and entertaining experience for our patrons and staff.”

A Facebook page has been the center of most of the topical comments. You can also read more here. Some say that they will never return to the restaurant, and others think it’s a great idea! What do you think?
