"We are strong supporters of the Second Amendment"

But not always.
“We are members of the NRA. We are strong supporters of the Second Amendment (the right to keep and bear arms). We are members of Pheasants Forever and Wild Turkey Federation, but our belief is guns and alcohol don’t mix,” said Mike King, part owner of Elm’s.
Because no crime has ever been committed inside a bar.

If you are out with your buddies and sip a Pepsi proprietors like this guy would rather you not protect yourself or your friends. (Besides being able to defend the business.)

It's an owner's right to restrict their business however way they want and it's a customer's prerogative whether they wish to enter that business, armed or otherwise.

Whenever someone says they support the 2nd Amendment, then immediately mention hunting, they don't really get the 2nd Amendment. Sport shooting is to the 2nd Amendment what "Mad Magazine" is to the 1st Amendment: sure it's protected by it, but it's not the primary reason for the amendment. (I know I'm preaching to the choir.)
