Firearms In Virginia Restaurant Draws Little More Than Shrugs From Local Diners

"The patrons at Champps, an upscale restaurant and bar chain, were eating ribs and drinking beer on a recent Saturday when customer Bruce Jackson stood up and made an announcement: He was armed, and so were dozens of other patrons.

"The armed customers stood up in unison, showing off holstered pistols and revolvers. Jackson said a word or two about the rights of gun owners to carry firearms in Virginia, then thanked everyone for their attention and sat down. And the diners returned to their burgers and Budweisers."

The event drew little more than shrugs. All in all, an outstanding demonstration by the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) of how little the shrill and utterly ridiculous warnings from anti self-defense types about "how restaurants would be dangerous if people were armed" matters to the average person.
