    Guess which restaurant defends right to bear arms!

    Ad claims 2nd Amendment key to what makes this nation 'great'

    DES MOINES, Iowa – While many retail businesses around the country have taken up the trend of plastering “no guns allowed” signs on their front doors, one national restaurant chain has boldly declared the right to bear arms key to what makes this nation “great.”
    Denny’s restaurants, a diner chain famous for being open every hour of every day, earlier this month released a commercial titled “Greatness,” which asks what makes America great, only to answer with – among other things – the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.





    “Kids,” the father in the commercial asks after receiving a “Midwestern Meat & Potatoes Sandwich” he’s clearly admiring, “do you know what it is that makes this country great?
    “The Constitution our forefathers wrote?” asks his daughter in return.
    “Our unified belief in the American dream?” his son suggests.
    The other customers in the restaurant then get in on the act, while strains of patriotic music play in the background.
    “Our melting-pot heritage that proves our differences really are our strengths?” a man proposes.
    “It’s our right to bear arms!” insists an elderly lady, referring to the wording of the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment.
    “Yes!” says the father, clearly covering his embarrassment at the profundity of answers offered to his question, which he initially asked about his … sandwich. “Those are some of the great things I was thinking of, as well.”
    The commercial ends on a lighter note, with the man’s daughter holding up her teddy bear and asking in confused tone, “Bear arms?”
    The commercial itself can be seen below:



    As WND reported, after the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., outside a Tucson Safeway supermarket last year, a number of businesses began banning guns in their stores, including Des Moines, Iowa, grocery chain Dahl’s Foods. WND was able to confirm that over a year later, despite public pressure, the gun ban at Dahl’s is still in effect.
    Other stores and national chains, such as Costo supermarkets and IKEA furniture stores, have similar gun bans in effect.
    Many 2nd Amendment advocates, however, argue that gun and concealed carry bans in stores will only stop law-abiding gun owners from carrying weapons, thus making the stores more dangerous.
    “I think it’s a terrible idea,” Iowa resident Jim Bricker told WND of the Dahl’s gun ban, “because if someone has it in their head to go in and rob a place, they’re going to do it. If permit holders are forbidden from carrying firearms in that store, [criminals] just have free rein to do anything they want.”
    “I just hate to see a local company shoot themselves in the foot for no good reason,” said Jan Mickelson of Iowa’s WHO Radio. “They say it’s about safety. It’s silly. Iowans don’t buy that. They’re protecting against the wrong people. … One guy called in and said, ‘Hey, if only I’d have known it was that easy. I had a relative who was shot in his retail store. If he’d only known that signs keep people safe, he’d have put up a sign and avoided the whole thing.’
    “It’s just silly logic,” Mickelson concluded.
    Denny’s is not among those retailers with a national ban on legally carried, concealed firearms

    I haven't been to a Denny's in years, but that is great that they are wading into an issue that scares lots of other companies!

    Good to hear....now if the one nearest me will just hire a complete new staff I'd resume eating there.

    Both the quality of the food & service went down the drain about two years ago...

    You know, I have never visited a Denny's establishment before.
    Think I'll just wander into my local Denny's for a snack!
    Go Denny's!!

    I'm with you on that one. Last time i went to Denny's, i couldn't tell if my server had poison ivy or was a heroin addict. And they were out of the potato bread that my sandwich was supposed to come on, just a bad breakfast overall. Bob Evan's hasn't been bad in all the trips i ever made.

    Great to see Denny's step up to the plate. They are hit or miss as far as food and service though. The one near my house is just fine. The one a few miles away is terrible.

    Nice to see Denny's take a stand for America.

    Unfortunately for me after I eat Denny's food I need to crazy glue myself to the toilet.
