The owner of Backstreets Pub is putting on a clinic in how to ruin your businesses brand:

“NO CONCEALED WEAPONS ALLOWED. If you are such a loser that you feel a need to carry a gun with you when you go out, I do not want your business. Douchebag.”
That’s the message Backstreets Pub & Deli recently sent to gun owners with a sign posted in its store window. The backlash against the establishment, located in Clemson, S.C., was swift after the conservative website Twitchy posted several photos of the sign from Twitter.
The Washington Times reports that the pub has a one-star rating out of five on Yelp.com, “with pages upon pages of negative comments and reviews by Second Amendment supporters.”
You’re not going to believe this, but, wait for it…the guy’s a Democrat.
Pete, who describes himself as a “conservative Democrat,” claims he has been a concealed carry permit holder since 2001, but guns don’t belong in public in a college town.
He explained why he feels that way: “There are cops everywhere. Cameras everywhere. Guns have no place here in a college town.”
Neither do rapists, but there they are.
