    Violation of the almost ever state law as they have a exemption. Look at Cheescake factory, they refused LEOS because of there guns and got hit with a $50k fine.

    Actually Yes, If they can prove you refused them because of their Service Weapon, you are liable for a Discrimination Lawsuit.

    Canadians are so cute. Officers have nothing to do with peace in the states.

    Wish we could export the U.S. thug culture to Canada.

    ^^ T H I S ^^ A good guy/gal in possession of a concealed firearm is beneficial, and not something to be feared. The only way to defend against armed criminals is for good people to be armed.

    Yea, they also say "assaults are not permitted" and "drivers are independent contractors," and look where that's got us.

    A good way to hurt someone is to broadcast to the world they will be unarmed.

    Peace officer is just a professional title. It is the equivalent of "Law Enforcement Officer" in the US. Trust me, we've got some real characters working as police officers up here too.

    Good luck with that Odin. You clearly don't understand either law or business.

    Then you may want to review .... discrimination is NOT illegal, unless you are discriminating because of sexual orientation, religion, race ... and about six other categories. It is not illegal to discriminate because of occupation.
    I refused to rent to someone because she was a lawyer. And I told her so.
    Lawyers are too troublesome and litigious. I don't rent to them. Period. And it's legal.

    Exactly right. In the olden days, when I was a lad, a cop was a "Peace Officer", now they are "Police Officers." Big difference.

    I never, as in ever, associate with, talk with, share anything with a cop. They will bust their mom for a joint if it will get them promoted or in good with their superior officer. Right or wrong has nothing to do with the game they play. As a group, they lie routinely and steal when they can get away with it. They are predators. Just like pimps, drug dealers, gang bangers ... all predators. I don't play with predators; because they have no morals or loyalty they are not to be trusted. If they are hungry they will feed on you, eventually you will get bit.
