Here's what I sent them:
You have apparently decided to ban guns in your establishments. That's too bad.
It means I and my family will no longer be able to dine in a restaurant we otherwise have always enjoyed.
Perhaps it should be brought to your attention that such "gun-free" locations have been the sites of almost every mass killing in recent years. Coming to your establishment and leaving my legally carried handgun at home is simply not an option.
I understand the emotions driving this decision, but you have made a mistake, and I won't allow my family to be targets because of your inability to withstand a bit of public pressure.
Good luck. If you change your plans, we'll be back.
Thanks to the OP for providing the link.
