Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America had lobbied Chipotle, Chili's and Sonic to ban open carrying of guns in their restaurants.
"Moms thank Sonic and Brinker International, which includes Chili's Grill & Bar, for taking action to stand up for the safety and security of our families," founder Shannon Watts said Friday. "We are heartened that we can take our children to these family-oriented restaurants and not worry about being confronted by customers with semiautomatic rifles."
After the open-carry demonstration two weekends ago by Open Carry Texas, Denver-based Chipotle asked customers to not bring guns inside. The gun-rights group did not immediately respond to a USA TODAY request for comment.
Starbucks, Wendy's, Jack In The Box, and Applebees have instituted similar no-guns policies. Unquote.
