A Black Eye for Waffle House

We wanted to let our Law Shield members know that a National Guard soldier named Billy Welch said he was refused service at a Waffle House in Kentucky because he was carrying a gun.

WLEX-TV reported that Welch went to the restaurant in Nicholasville, Kentucky, early Sunday morning. He was wearing his military uniform with a gun holstered in the open. Shortly after ordering his food, Welch said a server and a manager signaled for him to come over, and that’s when they told him that he would need to leave his firearm outside.

Several states have recently allowed National Guard soldiers to be armed in response to attacks in Tennessee.

The restaurant chain has a “no firearms” policy, so Welch decided to leave.

What’s your reaction?
