Man of Myth and Legend
Do not go to Cracker Barrel. If there is one in your area, go open to see if they make you leave and let them know you won't be back.

DALTON, GA (WRCB) -
A Dalton man says he was asked to leave a Cracker Barrel restaurant when managers spotted him carrying a handgun. He says there was no sign posted stating guns are not allowed on the property. Now he wants answers about why he was asked to leave.
Shane Franks says he went to the Cracker Barrel in Dalton to purchase Mother's Day cards. He says two managers escorted him out because he was carrying a gun, a gun he believes he had every right to take with him into the building.
This revolver is what triggered managers at the Dalton Cracker Barrel to escort Shane Franks out of the building Monday. Franks says he was legally carrying the gun on his hip when management asked him to leave. â€œIf the business does not want you to carry a firearm, they are asked to make that known,â€ said Franks.
Franks said there was no sign posted telling him he couldn't take the gun in until after he returned without the weapon. â€œWhen I came back there was a paper sign and place it on there and it said unless you are law enforcement you are not supposed to have a fire arm.â€

When Channel 3 visited Cracker Barrel Friday the makeshift sign was no longer in the window. A manager referred us to a corporate spokesperson, who denied our request for a statement, but a customer service representative tells Channel 3 if a gun is seen on any Cracker Barrel property the owner will be asked to return to their vehicle. Franks says he got a similar response. â€œIt's our policy no one carries on the premise. I said, you don't have any signs.
