Whataburger makes me proud

Most of what you hear in the village these days is about how nobody’s safe unless everybody openly carries their  penis-substitute around where everyone else can admire it.  Well, Whataburger’s CEO has decided that their customers concerns trump the village idiot’s insecurity.

Earlier this year, the Texas Legislature passed a law allowing license[d] handgun holders to open carry but private property owners have the freedom to ban open carry on their premises if they desire.

The open carry law takes effect on January 1, 2016. In an open letter on their company website, the President and CEO of Whataburger, Preston Atkinson, said they support Second Amendment rights but decided to prohibit open carry because of the desires of their customers. 

Part of the statement reads: “We’ve had many customers and employees tell us they’re uncomfortable being around someone with a visible firearm who is not a member of law enforcement…we have a responsibility to make sure everyone who walks into our restaurants feels comfortable. For that reason, we don’t restrict licensed concealed carry but do ask customers not to open carry in our restaurants.” 

If this can happen in Texas then I believe we’ll be seeing more and more of this all over the village.  At least I sure hope so.


Be seeing you.

    I’d like to think we’ll see more sensibility like this, but I’m not holding my breath. Turned blue a long time ago.
