Back in April, the owners of TBonz Steakhouse in Augusta, Georgia, "decided to be proactive when Republican Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law one of the most comprehensive pro-gun bills in the country," the newspaper reports. The new law allows firearms into the state's bars and restaurants unless otherwise posted.
The steakhouse hung up a "No Guns" sign on its front door.
Customers stayed away in droves.
The "customer backlash was so harsh and quick that the steakhouse immediately took down the sign and then posted a mea culpa on its Facebook page," the Times reports. "The sign that was put up regarding firearms has been removed," TBonz said in its Facebook posting in May, falling all over itself to repair the self-inflicted injury. "It was our intention to get the attention of IRRESPONSIBLE gun owners. But then we realized that irresponsible gun owners do not pay attention to signs."
