“You Wouldn’t Do a White Boy Like That”: Man Alleges He Was Kicked Out of Restaurant for Carrying Gun

A black Mississippi man claims not everyone is protected equally under the Second Amendment.

Ryan Phillips claims he was exercising his right to carry his gun in an “open carry” state when a police officer kicked him out of  Sam’s Southern Eatery.

Phillips says he usually doesn’t have a problem carrying his .40-Caliber Smith Wesson.

“When I’m in Pearl, I don’t need my firearm, but when I’m in Jackson and I’m going get something to eat with my fiancee, I’m going to have my weapon. If I can’t have it you won’t get my money,” he said to 16 WAPT.

In the video posted by WAPT, Phillips says he was picking up food when an officer beckoned him.

The owner of the restaurant reportedly doesn’t allow firearms, but Phillips says the owner wasn’t there and no store employees made an issue of his gun.

Phillips insists that there is no sign posted banning guns and that this wouldn’t have happened to a “white boy”.
