Farewell chili cheese dogs, Coney dogs, cherry-lime slushes, Sonic-blasts, coconut cream shakes and America’s loved tater-tots, I bid you a fond farewell. Because as reported: Sonic Drive-In, (and other establishments) have heeded Moms call, and will tell customers to leave guns at home; Posted on May 31st, 2014: 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. Check out the latest to-do: so Sonic, 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.” Posted from guns.com
Here are shocking poll results, therefore proving not just Democrat Americans are brain-dead.
More than half – 55% – of the country supports banning guns in food establishments and retail stores, according to a new Huffington Post/YouGov poll. A mere 32% of the public said they prefer allowing armed individuals into such locations. Seventy-two percent of Democrats and 41% of Republicans favor a no-gun policy. Exactly half of the GOP members who participated in the poll said they want shops to allow their clients to carry weapons.
I just heard that the NRA came out chastising the open carry crowd, well I’m not surprised there either.[Editor: the NRA has since backed away from that position.]
Sonic has prospered nicely, thanks to its business roots being established in our American heartland. Sonic Drive-In is an American dream come to life, it was born in Shawnee Oklahoma first in the form of a micro sized fried chicken shack, which morphed into the conglomerate giant of yumminess it is today. Due to where its roots were established, I’m guessing that most of Sonic Drive-In devotees were and are of the redneck variety. I mean that in the most loving patriotic way, in categorizing their customer base as: pro-God, pro-America, family and pro-GUNS (aka, liberal garlic cloves!)
So why would Sonic throw those very same gun-loving type of Americans who helped build its empire under the proverbial bus? It now appears that Sonic is bending over kissing liberal NYC type butts, as if these types would dare ever touch a tater tot. Not even with a 10 foot pole! Anything that goes in their mouths needs to be organically green. Greasy fried wonderfulness and tater tots is pure disgust to Democrat gun haters.
Since Sonic is now putting on the ritz with their anti-gun crap, I for one, as said above, am bidding a fond farewell to Sonic. Or at least until they regain their senses and start to again honor those who put Sonic on the map. In my personal protest against Sonics embrace of the liberal left I say… Hey Sonic, kiss my tater tots!
