Cheesecake Factory Kicks Out Corrections Officers Over Anti Gun Policy
A group of police officers at a Cheesecake Factory in Tacoma, Washington, had their Christmas luncheon cut short on Tuesday.
As soon as the entire group of law enforcement officers had gathered in the back seating area, Officer Miriam Nichols says they were inexplicably asked to leave.
It wasn’t that the cops were being rowdy or loud. The reason they were given the boot became clear quite soon.
Nichols told KIRO Radio that they were asked to leave because they were carrying their service weapons:
“They had seated us in the back area. Shortly after the rest of our party arrived, we were asked to leave because we were carrying our firearms with us. They said they did not allow firearms in their establishment.”
Nichols informed the Cheesecake Factory staffer that it was OK because they were cops. She told KIRO:
“They said it didn’t matter and they asked us to leave. We left quietly and tried not to make more of a scene than it already was.”
Cheesecake Factory management was polite, she said, and weren’t trying to be rude over the situation.
“There are only so many ways to politely kick someone out of an establishment, though,” Nichols said.
She posted about it on her Facebook page, which she subsequently took down, but by then it had started going viral:
