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. email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.
