Country Artist, Jamey Johnson, Cancels House Of Blues Concert after Venue Ban Guns
https://www.ammoland.com/2017/07/country-artist-jamey-johnson-cancels-house-of-blues-concert-venue-ban-guns/#axzz4nwXyItHL

While much is being made of the incident, it’s quite simple and boils down to one thing. Jamey Johnson, a USMC veteran, refused to enter a “gun-free” establishment, the venue wouldn’t compromise its “safety rules,” (which they could have under SC law), and as a result, there would be no show (not at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach anyway). That’s the way it’s supposed to work: Try to enter a venue, find out it’s a posted “gun-free” zone, leave and take with you the revenue stream you would have provided the anti-rights, bigots


Never heard of Jamey Johnson, but kudos to him for sticking up for his rights and beliefs.

My wife just read the article to me. Amazing how an establishment disarms legal carriers under the idea of safety. BTW. I have heard some of his music. I am an old school country listener because of the stories they tell. This fella can sing a story.

I wonder if the NRA can book him for the convention in May?

[sarcasm] But GFZs are safe places because criminals are not allowed to bring guns into the venue! :fire [\sarcasm]

My "go to" station on Pandora is Texas/Red Dirt Radio. They play a lot of Jamey Johnson on there.

I've always liked his music, now I like it even more.

I am not a fan of country, but I do enjoy a well-told story in almost any genre. Jamie Johnson is an excellent story teller and a stand-up guy.

While we will mostly agree that the 30.0x signs are silly and self-defeating. Would it be wrong to not permit scoped rifles into a music venue? These days many venues even don't allow cameras.

All I know is that If I were to stand on a stage in front of thousands of people with spotlights centering on me I would feel more like a target than entertainment.

To the best of my knowledge, entire 'House of Blues' chain is posted. Is this the first time Johnson has played at an HoB? Or have all the others been making an exception for him (that they don't make for those who merely buy a ticket)?
