H-E-B won't allow open carry in its stores

- Starting January 1, 2016, a new Texas law will come into effect allowing licensed handgun owners to openly carry their weapons.

Many retailers and restaurants have come out saying they will allow or disallow open carry.

One that won't allow it: H-E-B.

The company has not issued a public statement on this decision, but it has posted a notice on its store windows that reads:

Pursuant to Section 30.07, Penal Code (trespass by license holder with an openly carried handgun), a person licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code (handgun licensing law), may not enter this property with a handgun that is carried openly.

Many people have noticed the sign and shared it on Twitter.
