Chili’s and Sonic said in separate statements that they were asking customers not to openly carry firearms in their eateries, following a similar move by Chipotle earlier this month.

“We recognize that the open carry of firearms creates an uncomfortable atmosphere and is not permitted under many local liquor laws,” a Chili’s spokeswoman said in an email. “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.”

A Sonic spokeswoman said the company will defer to local laws with respect to storing guns in vehicles, but said it will no longer permit firearms in its dining areas.

“We’re asking that customers refrain from bringing guns onto our patios or into our indoor dining areas,” a spokeswoman said in a statement to HuffPost.

What Seung-Hui Cho, Elliot Rodger, Adam Lanza, James Eagan Holmes, Aaron Alexis and other Mass Shooters could not do, C.J. Grisham and his band of merry jerks managed to accomplish in spectacular fashion: Making the carry of firearms unpalatable to more and more business.

thank you OCT

  1. Again, another non-loss. They didn’t change anything different. They didn’t ban anything. They just asked to stay out of the debate.

    I’m not saying that OCT is doing things right, but we are giving them more attention then they deserve. We are giving Shannon and Bloomy points for something that isn’t true.

    So again, nothing changed, and nobody lost. Lets just ignore these guys.

  2. Before, I say this, know there is no fiercer advocate of our constitutional right to keep and bear arms than me. Doubt it? Check my blog.

    But I must say, ‘au contraire’ to poster ‘patrickhenry2nd’.

    All four of these: Starbucks, Chiplotle, Chili’s and now Sonic, are HUGE public-relations losses for the pro-civil rights side, and HUGE wins for the likes of Bloomberg. A few more of these, and they might be able to convince the Federal government to enact a gun ban. And some tyrannical, god-hating Supreme Court “justice” will go all Roberts and rubber-stamp it. Then, where will we be?

    OCT is not helping us. These idiots open-carrying SKS’s into the restaurants need to STOP, immediately.
