“Chili's has restaurants in 50 states. They make rules to cover all 50. Sorry, I do know of what I speak. I wasn't working in the restaurant. I was pretty well placed in the corporate office. You may not want to believe it, but liability concerns have led to a lot of rules in restaurants. I'm not starting an argument, just stating a fact. Also, insurance rates impact the price you pay at grocery stores and department stores. Risk management makes an assessment on chances of shoplifting and adjust prices accordingly. Don't believe me? Check the price difference for a loaf of bread at a chain grocery store in a nice neighborhood and a poor one. The poor people have higher prices.”

nhwynter73 on May 30, 2014 at 23:28:18

“Two things that need to be pointed out.
1) No one said Liability concerns didn't affect restaurants. They do.
2) No one said that insurance rates didn't impact grocery prices. It does. But there is a lot of other things as well. You can't just use your blanket example and think it proves your point. It doesn't.

From a Liability Risk Assessment standpoint, whether or not the patrons are "allowed" to have guns or not will have no bearing on their insurance. The reason being is that, right now, there is a huge question as to whether or not it will make any difference. I can guarantee you that insurance companies are going to hedge in the direction that favors them and not the client. They aren't going to reduce the liability premium over this in the off-chance that the place is robbed and someone killed.. On the flip side, they won't raise it either because the market is soft, currently, and they don't want the chance of losing the customer.”

“Chili's and Sonic are located in Texas and Oklahoma, respectively. Two of the most gun friendly states in the country. I guess Open Carry Texas thought they would be more friendly. Jokes on them!”

“They can't ban guns, you're right. But they can raise rates based on potential liability. Serving alcohol on premise while allowing fire arms in the restaurant will make them ripe for a lawsuit if anything "pops off". I've worked for Brinker (Chili's parent company). You wouldn't believe the number of law suits they face because they are serving alcohol to knuckle heads who looked "normal".”

nhwynter73 on May 30, 2014 at 21:12:55

“You really do not know of which you speak. I don't care who you've worked for and how many lawsuits involving the serving of alcohol have gone through there because it has no bearing on the guns. Why? Because there are laws across the country for concealed carry. Chili's will not see a break in their insurance premiums over this. And I can speak on it since I work for an insurance company.”

“To compare the two is ridiculous. If you want to compare an actress to a Harvard educated, former US Senator, now President who actually has exposure to intel just for the sake of you not liking him, that's fine. I was making a point beyond Republican vs. Democrat. That is, that an actress gets to comment on world affairs. Then again, Republicans were happy when an actor did it...Ronald Reagan. See how I just did what you did?”

“What will be her contribution? If she speaks on foreign affairs, the economy, or politics in general, she's doing so as someone who just read the newspaper. She's not even a journlalist doing research to write articles. She has no more expertise on these subjects than I do. I question her and others on all networks who speak with no credentials other than their reading comprehension skills, which are also questionable at times.”

“It's your normal, but not the norm for the majority of Americans. I'm an advocate for owning guns...I'm a Texan....I just don't want people I don't know and trust sitting beside my kids with a visible fire arm. Yes, there are people with concealed guns around. But I don't have to reassure my kids of their safety or teach my kids to trust that strangers with guns mean them no harm...because some do.”

“You're absolutely right. I have two degrees, but I'm still prone to the occassional typo. The difference between the two of us is that I don't try to use my education and, yes, intelligence, to make others feel inferior or less intelligent than I. Now your next response is to suggest that I did that with Palin. I say to you, get over it. You are sitting at your computer happily correcting grammar mistakes thinking that puts others in their place. Instead, it makes you appear to be a very small person.”

Pually on May 20, 2014 at 16:07:17

“It never ceases to amaze me how many people have multiple degrees online. What I did was to point out to a person that perhaps in correcting others, he may want to be correct himself. YOU are the one that felt the need to suggest I may be taking it a bit too seriously, rather than taking your own advice and not getting involved. Always remember Camillia. Intelligence is a relative term, and while you may excel in a few subjects over another, you will also be inferior in those topics you know little about. Should I predict what your response will be, or can we " get over it?"”
