The Backstreets Pub & Deli in Clemson, S.C. recently posted a sign telling gun owners to keep out.
The sign reads, "No Concealed Weapons Allowed" and in smaller print, states, "If you are such a loser that you feel a need to carry a gun when you go out, I do not want your business, douchebag."
Second Amendment supporters have attacked the bar owner on Facebook and on the review site Yelp for exercising his First Amendment rights, notes The Washington Times.
Food sucks, over priced. Owners a blatant liberal idiot that uses the eatablishment as a cover for his meth lab in the back. I hope this business fails and the owner commits suicide.
One commenter wrote on Facebook:
Hey dumb f---, way to advertise to the criminals that they are guaranteed 0 resistance when they come rob your ass! I hope you get robbed you miserable f---!!
The Huffington Post reported in February that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley signed a law allowing concealed guns in bars, as long as gun owners don't drink while inside.
However, bars and restaurants can still set their own rules in the state.
The owner of the bar, who goes by "Pete," told The Washington Times that he supports of gun rights, but added, "There are cops everywhere. Cameras everywhere. Guns have no place here in a college town. I’m sorry I used that language. It just came out wrong because I was frustrated.”
Pete has thanked the locals who support him, but says he's been endlessly harassed by gun rights advocates around the country.
“If it wasn’t so sad, it’d be funny,” Pete stated.
The six points that the Georgia Bulldogs received for scoring their first touchdown of the year came at a heavy price. The team’s top receiver, Malcolm Mitchell, will miss the rest of the season after injuring himself while he was celebrating the scoring play, a 75-yard run by Todd Gurley. To make matters worse, Georgia ended up losing the game to Clemson, 38-35.
Bulldogs coach Mark Richt announced Sunday that Mitchell did damage to the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee when he landed awkwardly during the celebration.
"[Mitchell] actually hurt it in the exuberance of the first touchdown of the game for us when he went to congratulate his teammate," Richt said. "I think he jumped up and chest bumped or whatever, and he landed in a bad way and that's when he knew something had happened."
"Malcolm unfortunately has an ACL injury that needs to be repaired here. I'm not sure when we'll do the surgery, but sometime in the near future. So what we thought happened did happen. It was confirmed by the MRI today."
Mitchell totaled 40 catches for 572 yards and four touchdowns last season, ESPN reported.
"We've got other guys that have gone deep that can make plays for us, but Malcolm was certainly one guy that can do that," Richt said. "He had great speed, quickness, he would snatch the ball in traffic. He was a great competitor."
Gurley also left the game after his long touchdown run but, unlike Mitchell, he got back on the field.
"I do not think after talking to Todd after the game that it's anything that's going to be serious at all," Richt said. "You never know how a guy's going to feel the next day, but I think Ron would have said something to me if he thought something was going on with Todd or with anyone else."
