Despite Panera Bread banning guns two sheriff’s deputies have been killed in a shootout at the restaurant in Abingdon, Maryland on February 10th

As a followup to a story we told you about in 2014, Panera Bread is sticking by it's decision to ban all firearms from their 1,800+ restaurant locations.

Official Statement from Panera Bread:

"Within our company, we strive to create Panera Warmth. This warmth means bakery-cafes where customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome. To this end, we ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer. Panera respects the rights of gun owners, but asks our customers to help preserve the environment we are working to create for our guests and associates."

 

 

Michael Bloomberg-backed Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is claiming this as a win for their movement:

“We are thrilled that after months of discussions between Panera and Moms Demand Action, Panera is taking a proactive position in favor of our families’ safety by putting a new gun policy in place. Moms are the consumers-in-chief for our households and we will reward companies that take a stand for our families’ safety. We urge other national companies follow suit.”
