Uniformed Soldier Refused Service at Restaurant Because of His Legally Carried Gun [VIDEO]


(Controversial Times) A Kentucky Waffle House restaurant has made national headlines after it allegedly refused service to a National Guard soldier due to his openly, legally carried sidearm.

Billy Welch stopped by a Nicholasville Waffle House, in uniform, and was told he would have to leave his sidearm in his car. According to local media reports:

“I got up and I walked over to them, asked them how they were doing and stuff, and they said I’d have to take my firearm outside,” said Welch. “I don’t feel comfortable taking my firearm away from me. I always keep it with me and they said, ‘it’s one of our policies.’”

Welch said that he didn’t think too much of it, just told the waitress that he could not leave his firearm outside.

“You know, if I can’t have my firearm, then I can’t be here,” said Welch. “I walked inside to the other waitress. I said, ‘thank you, but no thank you ma’am. I’m gonna have to leave.’”

According to numerous online postings and sources, Waffle House has always had a no firearms policy, although it seems that enforcement of this policy varies greatly from location to location.
