    Coming to a business near you.

    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.

    “We recognize that the open carry of firearms in restaurants creates an uncomfortable atmosphere and is not permitted under many local liquor laws,” Ashley Johnson, a Chili’s spokeswoman, said in a statement. “So, we kindly ask that guests refrain from openly carrying firearms into our restaurants and we will continue to follow state and local laws on this issue.”........................

    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.

    Looks to me like a request. However backed by the policy that they will follow the law.

    Trying to stay neutral in the debate.

    Trying to sit on the fence.

    Try this, the northern half of my county, Door County, will not permit a franchise operation, not a fast faux food restaurant, not a bigbox, ...
