    Ladies and gentlemen:

    Heartland Wisconsin, an Illinois based Corporation, has verified that they have a NO FIREARMS policy. There are no signs in the stores, but they can and will discriminate against those who choose to exercise their right to carry. Both Wisconsin Carry, Inc. and ICarry officials have verified that this is and will continue to be their policy.

    I am including a link to their store locator: http://www.heartlandfoodcorp.com/res...t_locator.aspx So you can see WHICH Burger King stores infringe on your rights.

    As there are many other options available for fast food, I would encourage you to take your hard earned money to one of their competitors and avoid the Burger King facilities owned by Heartland Wisconsin. If you would like to contact their corporate office to express your concern over this policy here is the corporate contact info:

    Heartland Food Corporate Office
    1400 Opus Place, Suite 900
    Downers Grove, IL 60515
    Corporate Office (630) 598-3300

    There is also an EMail option on the following page: http://www.heartlandfoodcorp.com/contact_us.aspx

    Feel free to share this information on any and all other forums you may belong to. If you have fiends, relatives, or neighbors who work at one of their facilities, respectfully request they seek alternative employment with an employer who does not have a pre-existing prejudice against those who carry.

    Glad to see they don't own the one in Greensburg.

    Or the one in Columbus. Appears the only one they do own in the state is on the East side of Indianapolis, according to their map.

    According the map I am seeing they own a BUNCH in Evansville and Terre Haute.

    So based on where which BK you visit it might or might not be one of theirs.

    Confusing enough that I am just not visiting any more BK stores.

    You think if BK hears from enough of us that they'll pull this owner's out? One can hope!

    At this point, I think everybody is contacting the PARTICULAR owner, not BK corporate. The time may come where that is necessary, but I would hope THIS franchise owner adopts a new policy

    Actually there's quite a few up here in northwest Indiana, not sure if you consider us as "part of the state" or not.

    Well something must have been screwey on my map then (accessing at work) because I zoomed out to show about a 4 or 5 state area and only saw the one marker, so it appears to be a technical glitch on my end.



    Ah! Tinkered with it some more and lo and behold they were everywhere... Good thing I tend not to eat at BK.

    Boat load of them in NW Indiana. Not all of them, but I'd say 33% in Lake and Porter Counties.

    ONALASKA -- Onalaska police confirmed today that a robbery took place earlier this morning at Burger King, 1259 Crossing Meadows Drive. Police said the suspects were at-large, but would not say if or how much money was taken. No other information was released.
    So, how is that gun free zone working out for ya Mr. Wiborg?
