2A Check Action Request – EMAIL BOMB!:

We have never done this before and want to ask for your help. We would like to recruit your help to send a message to a major anti-gun restaurant franchisee in Wisconsin. You do not need to live in Wisconsin to send an email. They’re not going to know where you live. laura.nelson@whgroup.com is our target.

Here are the details:

Wisconsin Hospitality Group http://www.whgonline.com/ owns dozens of Applebee’s and Pizza Hut restaurants in Wisconsin and does not permit lawful carry of firearms in any of them.

Here is their response to our inquiry. It is a canned response that is identical to one received by a Wisconsin fan of our page:

“Thank you for your inquiry. We certainly respect Wisconsinite’s right to conceal and carry a weapon and our company’s policy decision to prohibit weapons is not an indication of political preference, however, the decision has been made to request that concealed weapons be left out of our restaurant and bar establishment. I am providing all inquiries on this matter, both pro and con, to the senior management for consideration and I can assure you it will be seen. We are truly sorry for the concern this is causing you and guest inquiries do have an impact on our business. Thanks again for taking the time to contact us instead of quietly showing your displeasure.”

We would like to send 1000+ emails to the WHG Operations point of contact. Our contact’s name is Laura Nelson. She is the one who sent the canned response message above.

Her email address is laura.nelson@whgroup.com
Please try to be courteous and use logic in your message. If you aren’t sure what to say you can use this as an example:

Hello Ms. Nelson,

I recently discovered your company’s policy to prohibit firearms in your restaurants. With your current policy you’re telling us you do not want our business, so we will comply with your wishes and take our business elsewhere.

I hope you will encourage those responsible for determining your company’s policy to reconsider their gun ban, and instead allow the law to determine who may carry a firearm in your restaurants. A determined criminal will not be deterred by your gun-free policy, while a lawfully armed citizen is a threat to nobody but criminals.

For every person like me who contacts you, there are thousands more who feel the same way but do not say a word – they just go elsewhere. If you do decide to reconsider your policy please let me know so my friends and I can start eating at your restaurants again.

Sincerely,
<Your name>

When you email them you will get back the same form letter/canned response that we pasted above.  That’s okay.  They’re getting the message.  Thanks for your help 2A supporters!!!  PLEASE SHARE this so we can maximize the number of emails sent to this company.

Here is some additional company information:

  1. So you want to bitch at a privet business because your mad ! Thats bull shit ! I am a consertive and i love my guns, but to single out a business because they dont want guns on there property is wrong! There company started with some one puting there ass on the line to make it happen, just because you dont aggrey with it dosent make it wrong. They just dont have the same views as you! I encourage law abiding citizens that have a dumb pice of plastics to carry at my business and friends to carry at my home. Just because you dont approve doesn’t give you the right to bash (or email bomb) them. Difference in belief and/or options and the right to express it is what makes this the best country in the world!
    and again I am a conservative I do love my guns along with all the right the founding fathers gave us.

      I just came across this article, and though your response is over 2 years old, I feel I must comment just the same.
      “Mad” has nothing to do with this particular issue. Since you mentioned the 56 men who signed that enduring document that you are now touting, let me explain what this is REALLY about.

      Lets bring up the individual amendments… Lets start with the 1st. Right to free speech (in which you have exercised (your stupidity) quite plainly, and LEGALLY.)
      2nd: Right to bear arms. THIS amendment PROTECTS ALL OF THE OTHER amendments!
      3rd: Places restrictions on the quartering of soldiers in private homes without the owner’s consent, prohibiting it during peacetime.
      4th: Prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and sets out requirements for search warrants based on probable cause as determined by a neutral judge or magistrate.
      5th: Sets out rules for indictment by grand jury and eminent domain, protects the right to due process, and prohibits self-incrimination and double jeopardy.

      I’ll stop there because, I hope, you are getting the point.

      Being safe also came with this country (Constitution July 4, 1776)….Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and all that? Maybe you’ve heard of this?

      Life… yours, mine, your family’s, the stranger standing in line behind you at the grocery store or sitting two booths away in a restaurant…. as citizens of this country we/they all have the same rights.

      Pursuit of happiness…. How happy are the families of those people going to be if someone bent on causing harm opens fire (lets just say in a restaurant that has made it clear that their properties are GUN FREE ZONES) somewhere that you are and there was NO ONE around you to stop it? Maybe this evil doer blows through a clip and stops… maybe he drops the empty clip, pulls another one from his pocket, inserts it and keeps firing, How many people will die at the hands of this lunatic before he (in any way) is stopped? Will you? Maybe someone you love? Maybe the strangers close by you? More? How many more?

      I feel compelled to remind you (or maybe educate you) that CRIMINALS do NOT care about GUN FREE ZONES! Lunatics do NOT care about GUN FREE ZONES. To them, the people I love, and the strangers I have never met, become FISH IN A BARREL!
      Gun free zones are a MYTH!

      This country is great because people like YOU have the 1st amendment right to run your mouth on a subject that you clearly do not fully understand.

      How many MORE people have to die before people (like you) get it? People bent on doing harm will find a way! Establishments that do not allow concealed, or open, carry and make their views PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE, are asking, no BEGGING, for said evil doers to do evil!

      I for one, DO NOT go to places that openly BAN concealed (or open) carry. When I go to the court house I check my weapon at the door. I do not patronize businesses (such as bars or night clubs) where it is illegal to carry in any fashion. YES this is MY CHOICE. I do not want to be around if/when all hell breaks loose and I have no way to protect myself or those around me.

      I do carry concealed. I have for nearly 3 decades. I pray to the Lord on high EVERY DAY that I NEVER have to pull my weapon and use it (I will NEVER pull it unless I INTEND to use it) in defense of my life and/or those lives around me. I also pray that if I ever have to use my weapon in defense, that the SURVIVORS (because of what I will have had to do) will not be angry with me for shooting someone bent on doing harm to others. And, if those SURVIVORS are angry? I pray to the Lord on high that they have VERY LONG LIVES to be angry with me in.

    • Rob, if you’re going to bitch about bitching, you should at least know how to spell at least half the words you choose. Opinions aside the spelling and grammar affect the impact of your message.
      We’re you going for peoples’ “options” or opinions?….See what I mean?

  5. To whom it may concern,
    I do not live in WI but I do eat at Pizza Hut and Applebee’s quite often, especially Applebee’s. Although I do believe in a states right to govern themselves, as the Constitution allows, I feel that by not allowing a law abiding American to carry in these two restaurants, you will be putting Americans at a greater risk of assault. Here in TN we are allowed to carry, legally of course, in these restaurants, as long as we are NOT drinking alcohol. Our state has a no alcohol with gun policy at public establishments. I feel that is a fair law so, I do not drink at these establishments while eating there. I hope you look into the TN law and maybe you will see this is a better way to make your establishments safer. By telling the World that your state will not allow law abiding Americans to carry in these establishments, you will also be letting the non-law abiding Americans know this. They will NOT follow this rule/law.

    God Bless,
