Panera Asks Gun Owners to Not Bring Their Guns

The Richmond Times Dispatch reports Panera Bread has asked customers to not bring their guns with them when they eat in the chain:
The restaurant chain is joining Target, Chipotle, Starbucks and a number of other companies that already have asked customers to refrain from bringing firearms into their stores.
But, it should be noted, like Target, Chipotle, and Starbucks, this isn't an out right ban on firearms:
Shaich told CNBC that the company will continue to abide by state and federal firearms laws. He also said that store employees won't be asked to enforce the policy or put up signs about it. 
So, it appears this is another company who wants to appear to be bowing to Shannon Watts and Mike Bloomberg without actually doing so.  Apparently Panera doesn't have the gonads that Kroger possesses.
