I don't know these restaurants and am not even from Texas, but I can almost guarantee you that these are purely cover-your-patootie signs for liability reasons. If anything ever happens involving a gun, the restaurant can claim that hey, guns aren't allowed, we can't strip-search customers, so you can't sue us. I doubt anyone there is going out of their way checking for bulges on customers' beltlines.

And as much as our friend Stakeout may believe the loss of his business shocks the owners, the sad reality is that at least in urban areas, those signs may draw more approval than upset.
