As a press release by Ector noted, “The boycott was initiated by a local Michigan CCW Class Instructor, Rick Ector, in response to that eatery's ban on the possession of all legally carried firearms—openly carried or lawfully concealed carried with a state of Michigan permit. In Michigan, open carry of a pistol in a visible holster is legal without a license. Furthermore, the concealed carry of a handgun is also legal if the person has a Michigan Concealed Pistol License.”

“Ector, a former robbery victim, believes that the restaurant's ban on handguns creates a dangerous dining environment for customers. The reasoning, according to Ector, is that if a business bans guns then armed criminals will know where they can find unarmed people to rob, rape, and assault. The boycott will remain in effect until this local IHOP location drops it gun ban.”

A National Rifle Association credentialed firearms trainer, Ector provides CCW instruction in the Detroit area. Read More
