This is in response to some open carry advocates bringing rifles into the restaurants. http://www.nbcnews.com/business/consumer/chilis-sonic-toughen-stance-guns-n118901 They are banning concealed as well. My CHL teacher mentioned that Tri-Met (public transport) doesn't allow firearms, but is technically a private company, so all they can do is ban you from taking the bus. He then went on to say he wouldn't get on a bus without a concealed weapon, and that if you need it, getting banned is better than dying. If you don't need it, nobody will know. So there. Sonic and Chili's suck anyway, so they won't lose my business because they never had it. Having said that, I don't think the open carry activists are helping the general situation.
