"Shoot the Waiter!"
Shooting restaurant staff is what Potter implies in this online Cleveland based rag:
Getting the drop on poor restaurant service
Hmm. From anyone else, a strained joke in bad taste. From a conspiracy cult tough guy? He might not be joking. Readers aren't impressed:

The older I've become, the less often I dine at restaurants
because of mediocre food and service. The next time I'm at a restaurant,
I'll inform my server, "Thanks to Ohio's new gun law, I expect
excellent food and service -- or there will be consequences!" Thomas
Potter, Olmsted Falls
Attention all bar and restaurant owners: you are going to see
more of these Mr. Potter-type bullies in your establishments, embolded
by Ohio's new CCW law.
Please treat these DEATH THREATS as they should be treated - with
ZERO tolerance - and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. Back
your employees up.
Please be especially vigilant to make sure that Mr. Potter does not
have any alcohol - he has already announced to the entire world that he
is ready and willing to use his gun to shoot anyone if he is
dissatisfied, and drunk bullies are much worse than sober ones.
Also, I would advise any establishment that currently knows that they
are serving Mr. Thomas Potter of Olmsted Falls to bar him from their
establishment for making very public threats to their employees in the
Plain Dealer, and if possible curculate his photograph to all West side
restaurants as a warning to others that this man is armed and dangerous
bully who is making very public threats.
I would also hope that the State of Ohio will promptly revoke his CCW
license for making these very public death threats, and would
automatically revoke the CCW licenses of anyone who would use these
types of threats in public.
One reader thinks it's just sarcasm:
Mr. Thomas Potter may want to take a long hard look at
himself and perhaps even listen to himself the next time that he is out
dining somewhere. Rude customers are much more common than rude and bad
service. Mr. Potter needs to realize that this very same law that he
is using to threaten servers, gives the same servers the right to also
carry a gun. Is this law going to turn every disagreement, bad service,
and even road rage into an all out war?
With normal people, froggy8 is probably right. With Potter? Start dialing 911.
As for Mr. Potter's letter, the last sentence is sarcasm, which, as seen in some responses, some people do not get.
