Subway Restaurants Ban Open Carry

Subway Restaurants Ban Open Carry

Subway restaurants have now banned open carry in all restaurants. This policy change came the same day as a North Carolina Subway restaurant that was destroyed during riots back in May. The following statement can be found on their website:

Open Carry of Firearms

For the consideration and comfort of restaurant employees and guests, Subway respectfully requests that guests (other than authorized law enforcement) refrain from openly displaying firearms inside restaurants — even in states where “open carry” is permitted.

I’ve said it many times before, but the only time I open carry is when I’m hunting. I personally think concealed carry is the way to go when carrying a firearm in public. I won’t go into all of the reasons here again.

But I do believe open carry should be legal, and you should have the right to open carry if you please.

Does this new policy have to do with the open carry demonstration at a Subway in North Carolina on day 1 of Phase 1 of the Coronavirus restrictions? Possibly. Could this be why they only banned open carry and not concealed carry?

So what exactly is banning open carry in Subway restaurants going to accomplish? In my mind, nothing at all.

This was not a very “tactical” thing for Subway to do, IMHO.
