A uniformed officer with the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency said he was asked to leave a “gun-free zone” restaurant because he was carrying his service weapon, WTVC-TV reported.
Andrew Ward on Friday posted an account of his experience on Facebook, noting that he and his wife stopped by an Outback Steakhouse for dinner and the manager asked him to put his gun in his truck.
