I can't confirm the accuracy of any of these contributions.

I posted it for a forum member. Feel free to research and discredit the list. It will make a good discussion.

thanks for posting that. If it's accurate it's a good start... I know where I'll be spending my $... Currently spending it at the Marriott here in NJ for the next 3 weeks.

Why do you say they're antigun? I've never seen a posted WH, and in fact have been in more than one that had people openly carrying.

Every waffle house has a big yellow sign hanging outside their door that says that they do not allow anyone to carry a handgun on their property.Even if you have your handgun carry permit..If thats not anti gun, I don't know what is.

I look at it as a personal/business rights issue. If they don't want them, I may not like it but I respect it. Better than the gubment telling me.
