Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is stringing together victories on the open-carry front, convincing restaurants and fast-food establishments to tell customers to leave their firearms at home.

The latest to do so include Chili’s Grill & Bar and Sonic, both of which announced on Friday that they would prefer if gun owners not bring firearms into store locations.

A Sonic spokesperson said, “…we’re asking that customers refrain from bringing guns onto our patios or into our indoor dining areas.”

Likewise, a Brinker International/Chili’s Grill & Bar spokesperson echoed the sentiment.

“We recognize that the open carry of firearms in restaurants creates an uncomfortable atmosphere and is not permitted under many local liquor laws,” according to a Moms Demand Action press release. “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.”

The action was precipitated by an open-carry demonstration by a group of gun-rights advocates that believe one of the best ways to raise awareness for their cause is to carry openly without notifying police, the public or the businesses they plan on patronizing.
