    Whataburger takes stand against Texas' new open carry law

    My favorite Burger joint this really bums out! Now I will not ever spend my money in here again!

    I want to say W/B operates in most southern states, can folks from non-Texas chime in as to W/B prohibiting OC in your state?
    I don't think that has been the case, so now they are taking action to restrict things more so than in the past.

    I live in Oklahoma and have OC'd in a few different WB locations. They are not posted, and the staff has always been friendly and never mentioned my sidearm.

    A new WB opened up last week, near my house. This was after the corporate announcement of being anti OC. I decided to give it a go. There were several managers on location (I assume at least one was a DM). And yet again, they were all smiles and had no concern with me being armed.

    I wonder if this is an official policy change, or if it's just a statement (like Target, Starbucks, etc). If it's official and signs go up, I'll stop spending money there.

    I have been watching various image collections for "whataburger" AND "no guns" OR "no-guns" OR "guns" and no sort of gun-buster sign has yet appeared.
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    Armed and annoyingly well informed!

    There are two constants when dealing with liberals:
    1) Liberals never quit until they are satisfied.
    2) Liberals are never satisfied.

    amazing how these weirdo's promote peace through such threat of violence, no? and yet not one of us has harmed anyone without lawful reason to do so, for the most part.
