“To this end, we ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer,” the statement said.
But then there’s this at CNBC:

I don’t eat bread, so I don’t find myself at Panera often anyways, but this is nothing more than the company getting the Misguided Moms off their back while not actually changing anything. Same old song and dance.
