A social media post about an armed soldier who was refused service at a Kentucky restaurant is going viral.
Billy Welch is an Army National Guard soldier. Welch says he always keeps his gun holstered to his side for safety reasons.
Welch says around 1:30 a.m. he stopped at the Waffle House in Nicholsville wearing his military uniform with his gun by his side.
After ordering his food, he said a waitress signaled for him to come over.
“I got up and I walked over to them, asked them how they were doing and stuff, and they said I’d have to take my firearm outside. I don’t feel comfortable taking my firearm away from me. I always keep it with me and they said, ‘it’s one of our policies.’”

Are they CRAZY???

I guess business will be slow
Come on guy it’s policy..rules do also apply to service members..what does he do with his weapon when he goes into the liquor store? Gas station? They weren’t refusing to serve the uniformed service member. They were refusing to serve the person with a weapon that is against company policies…
Won’t go there again!
Who cares ? There food is nasty anyway !!!
