HOW IT BEGAN...….
my neighbor and I went back the next week and we told the waitress what happened the waitress said 'they're here' she too was not comfortable with the men carrying guns to breakfast and told us they go there all the time. MY NEIGHBOR AND I GOT UP AND LEFT & THE BOYCOTT BEGAN.
PLEASE JOIN THE STAR COOKIES ‘NO GUNS WITH PANCAKES, PLEASE’ BOYCOTT OF ORIGINAL PANCAKE HOUSE IN SOUTH SALEM OREGON & AT ALL OF THEIR LOCATIONS WHERE THEY ALLOW PEOPLE TO OPENLY CARRY DEADLY WEAPONS TO EAT PANCAKES WITH OUR CHILDREN & GRAND CHILDREN NOT KNOWING IF THEY ARE LEGALLY CARRYING THE WEAPON, IF THE WEAPONS ARE LOADED OR IF THEY ARE TRAINED TO USE THE WEAPON. PANCAKE BREAKFAST IS NO PLACE FOR GUNS.
I know people here in Oregon who have concealed carry permits. they have had background checks. they have paid their fees & they have taken their gun safety classes & I have no issue with them concealing & carrying their weapons everywhere they go. IF YOU CAN NOT GET A PERMIT FOR ANY DISQUALIFYING REASON HOW CAN YOU BE ALLOWED TO 'OPEN CARRY' & HOW ARE WE THE PUBLIC SUPPOSED TO KNOW?
I called original pancake house again and was told the manager said Oregon is an open carry state & the lady told me she would contact corporate and call me back TO DATE (10/28/18) I HAVE GOTTEN NO CALL BACK FROM ORIGINAL PANCAKE HOUSE.
** 'OPEN CARRY' MAY BE THE DUMBEST IDEA THE NRA EVER CAME UP WITH
NOW I MAKE & EAT PANCAKES AT HOME
A FEW WEEKS LATER ON SUNDAY AUGUST 12 AT 9:13 am, I WAS TERRIFIED BY AN ACTIVE SHOOTER ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY APARTMENT IN SALEM OREGON DIRECTLY BEHIND A PARK PLAYGROUND AS KIDS WERE PLAYING. THE MAN SHOOTING AT POLICE & SWAT WAS A FELON WHICH DISQUALIFIED HIM FROM OWNING A GUN.
CURRENT GUN LAWS MUST BE UPDATED & ENFORCED TO KEEP WE THE PEOPLE SAFE FROM THOSE WHO ARE DISQUALIFIED FROM GUN OWNERSHIP THAT THEREFORE DISQUALIFIES YOU FROM 'OPEN CARRY'. 'OPEN CARRY' IS NOT FOR ALL OF US.

HOW DOES IT MAKE ANY SENSE IF LAW READS YOU CAN NOT CARRY A LOADED HAND GUN IN YOUR CAR THAT YOU CAN CARRY IT IN PUBLIC OR IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT THAT YOU MUST 'OPEN CARRY' IT. BOTH ARE ABSURD.
my neighbor and I went to my favorite breakie place in salem oregon as we did on a regular weekly basis. original pancake house has been my favorite breakfast other than making my own at home since moving to Oregon 13 years ago now. as we were seated at the booth near the bathroom a man came out of the bathroom with a hand gun at his waist. I kept my eye on him like a hawk thinking he was going to shoot whoever he was having pancakes with as I told my neighbor 'that guy has a gun'. she was extremely upset. I called both original pancake house & the salem police when I got home after looking up gun law. pancake house told me they get back with me but never did. salem police told me I should not approach a gun carrier I should call them when I asked 'how am I supposed to know that the person carrying a weapon in public is LEGALLY allowed to do so?LOOK I AM NOT SAYING TAKE YOUR GUN AWAY I AM SAYING THE REST OF US HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE LEGALLY CARRYING THE GUN & THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN ACTIVE SHOOTER CLASS & ARE TRAINED TO USE IT. IF YOU CAN NOT GET A CONCEALED WEAPON PERMIT BECAUSE YOU DO NOT PASS DISQUALIFICATION CATEGORIES HOW CAN YOU BE ALLOWED TO OPENLY CARRY A WEAPON AT ALL? HOW ARE WE THE PUBLIC SUPPOSED TO KNOW BECAUSE NO NOT ALL AMERICANS CAN LEGALLY OPEN CARRY GUNS.
