Whataburger Bans Open Carry in Texas After it Becomes Law

By on Tuesday, July 14, 2015

 Anyone with half a brain knows that gun control laws only hurt law-abiding citizens while enabling criminals.
Michael Bloomberg knows this as do his harpies at Moms Demand and Everytown but they simply don’t care. Bloomberg has paid armed security so he believes laws only apply to the ‘little people’.
Texas finally passed a law making open carry legal in the state. They already allow concealed carry but people were demanding their right to carry openly.

The 2nd Amendment doesn’t dictate how American Citizens carry their firearms, it states they have the right to bear them.
Apparently Whataburger has decided to ban open carry from its stores.
Whataburger, which has nearly 800 locations in 10 states, announced that Texas customers will be denied the right to open carry their weapons, even though the state’s governor signed a bill last month to allow open carry, the Associated Press reports.
“Whataburger supports customers’ Second Amendment rights and we respect your group’s position, but we haven’t allowed the open carry of firearms in our restaurants for a long time (although we have not prohibited licensed conceal carry),” Whataburger President and CEO Preston Atkinson wrote in a letter on the company’s website. “It’s a business decision we made a long time ago and have stood by, and I think it’s important you know why.”

Texas’ new law, which takes effect in January, allows gun owners to openly carry firearms, but only in locations and businesses that have policies allowing open carry.  Atkinson said he just wants to keep customers from feeling uncomfortable.
The irony is customers are still welcome to concealed carry in the chain as they have always been allowed to.
