Chipotle is asking customers to leave their firearms at home when they come to dine at the burrito chain.

The announcement was made Monday after gun rights activists carried rifles into the restaurant and posted images of them toting the weapons on social media.

Last fall, Starbucks asked customers to leave weapons at home, and says that the request has been respected by patrons.
