Police Officer Turned Away From Chuck E. Cheese’s Restaurant For Carrying Firearm

posted on August 26, 2015

A Bowling Green, Ky., police officer was refused service at a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant August 19—even though her police polo shirt made her clearly identifiable as a police officer, and even though Kentucky state law expressly allows officers to carry firearms anywhere in the state except federal buildings, whether or not they’re wearing uniforms. 

Kentucky law allows businesses to post “No Firearms” signs on their premises. However, “Our firearms policy does not apply to officers in uniform,” a spokeswoman for the restaurant chain told WBKO. “We do have a firearms policy for civilians and off-duty, non-uniformed officers, but officers in uniform are always welcome to bring in their firearms,” she continued, demonstrating her apparent ignorance of state law. 

Kentucky has more than 200,000 Right-to-Carry permit holders who can exercise their constitutional rights—and their freedom of choice in dining options—accordingly.
