SEATTLE — A popular Seattle ice cream parlor is emphasizing it is a gun-free zone and posted a sign on its door prohibiting police officers from entering if they are armed.
Molly Moon Neitzel decided to put up the sign at her namesake shop which is located in the area known as the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone, after the area was taken down.
Neitzel has "gun-free zone" stickers at her seven other locations, but this is the only one prohibiting armed police.
Mike Solan, president of the Seattle Police Officer's Guild denounced the sign.
“I feel it’s divisive rhetoric. I view it as political pandering,” Solan said. “It’s more divisiveness at a time when we need more unity.”
