Well maybe I am wrong about a bill being passed to ban all guns from the state of Illinois; after all the police can't even eat at Denny’s without getting harassed.
After several plain clothes detectives were asked to leave their guns outside they chose to leave without paying for their food. Even though they were wearing their badges in plain sight along with their guns when a patron complained to the management.
The management then approached the officers and informs them that their guns are not allowed in the restaurant and asked them to take them out. The officer chose to leave instead and went back to the station house where they evidently told the police chief.
The chief they made a ruling that no on-duty cops are allowed to eat at Denny’s. is it me or did Denny's in Belleville, Ill open the door to criminals by saying "NO COPS HERE", I bet that don’t happen at doughnut palace…lol
