In Obama’s America, veterans aren’t treated with nearly as much respect as they deserve. This week, yet another American business disrespected a veteran in a shameful way.
According to New York Daily News, a soldier with the U.S. Army National Guard was denied service at a Kentucky Waffle House on Sunday simply because he was carrying his firearm.
Bill Welch reportedly entered the Waffle House in full uniform with his gun at his side, but a waitress quickly told him that he needed to leave his weapon outside if he wanted to eat there. With all the assaults on men in uniform currently happening in this country, Welch did not feel safe parting with his gun, so he had to leave.
“You know, if I can’t have my firearm, then I can’t be here,” Welch later told WLEX-TV. “I walked inside to the other waitress. I said, ‘thank you, but no thank you ma’am. I’m gonna have to leave.'”
Witness Micaela Shaw told reporters that it pained her that she couldn’t do anything to help Welch.
“I have a bunch of family members and friends who have been active military and in the military and retired and it hurts my feelings when people disrespect them,” Shaw said.
Now, conservatives are calling for a national boycott of Waffle House until they learn to treat our veterans with some respect.
Waffle House has released the following statement about this incident:
“For many years we have had a ‘no firearms’ policy in place in our restaurants. We are well aware that different people and businesses have varying opinions regarding this issue, and we respect the right of all to have different opinions. However, we continue to believe this is the best policy for the safety of our customers and associates.”
