Dear Heartland corporation:

I am a member of the National Rifle Association, Wisconsin Carry Inc., Illinois Carry Inc., and the United States Concealed Carry Association. I have recently found out that you will not allow open carry of a handgun in your restaurants. Since the only people having a gun in your restaurants are criminals and law abiding people will have no means of protecting ourselves, I do not feel safe eating at your establishments any more.

Please let me know when you start supporting the 2nd ammendment rights and I will be happy to enjoy a Whopper.

In the mean time, I will make other choices.

Jeffrey R. Frawley, Sr.

Here is the story:

Heartland Wisconsin, a Illinois based Corporation, has verified that they have a NO FIREARMS policy. There are no signs in the stores, but they can and will discriminate against those who choose to exercise their right to carry. Both Wisconsin Carry, Inc. and ICarry officials have verified that this is and will continue to be their policy.

I am including a link to their store locator: so you can see WHICH Burger King stores infringe on your rights.

As there are many other options available for fast food, I would encourage you to take your hard earned money to one of their competitors and avoid the Burger King facilities owned by Heartland Wisconsin. If you would like to contact their corporate office to express your concern over this policy here is the corporate contact info:

If you have fiends, relatives, or neighbors who work at one of their facilities, respectfully request they seek alternative employment with an employer who does not have a preexisting prejudice against those who carry.
