Two more national restaurant chains are saying no to guns.
Sonic and Chili’s announced Friday afternoon that customers will no longer be able to bring firearms into the restaurants. The two chains reviewed their policies on guns after franchise owners in San Antonio asked a group of gun rights activists with assault rifles to leave the premises.

The two companies are following similar policies as Chipotle, which announced earlier this month that guns are no longer welcome inside stores, and Starbucks, which asked customers to refrain from bringing firearms inside after a post-Newtown rally advocated for tighter gun laws.
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a group that placed pressure on both companies for tougher gun restrictions through a campaign launched last weekend, applauded the corporations’ new policies.
