(CNN) — Chipotle is asking customers to check their firearms at the door. The Mexican food chain made the request after gun rights advocates brought military-style assault rifles into a Texas Chipotle restaurant last week.
The gun control group “Mom’s Demand Action for Gun Sense in America” then began circulating a petition calling on Chipotle to ban guns in its restaurant. The company’s “No Guns” request doesn’t apply to members of law enforcement.
An official statement said, “The display of firearms in our restaurants has created an environment that’s potentially intimidating or uncomfortable for many of our customers.”
