Chipotle bans gun carry

Chipotle Forbids Firearms Inside http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/nati...75841.html

Because of idiots in Texas. Seriously? Who eats with rifles at a restaurant?! Makes gun owners look stupid. And forces the hands of companies who otherwise would have remained neutral.

Statement by Chipotle below:


Quote:The issue of gun ownership or gun rights has become one of the most contentious debates in the country. Chipotle has never taken a position on this issue, as we focus instead on our mission to change the way people think about and eat fast food.

Recently participants from an “open carry” demonstration in Texas brought guns (including military-style assault rifles) into one of our restaurants, causing many of our customers anxiety and discomfort. Because of this, we are respectfully asking that customers not bring guns into our restaurants, unless they are authorized law enforcement personnel.

Historically, we felt it enough to simply comply with local laws regarding the open or concealed carrying of firearms, because we believe that it is not fair to put our team members in the uncomfortable position of asking that customers refrain from bringing guns into our restaurants. However, because the display of firearms in our restaurants has now created an environment that is potentially intimidating or uncomfortable for many of our customers, we think it is time to make this request.

We acknowledge that there are strong arguments on both sides of this issue. We have seen those differing positions expressed in the wake of this event in Texas, where pro-gun customers have contacted us to applaud our support of the Second Amendment, and anti-gun customers have expressed concern over the visible display of military-style assault rifles in restaurants where families are eating. The vast majority of gun owners are responsible citizens and we appreciate them honoring this request. And we hope that our customers who oppose the carrying of guns in public agree with us that it is the role of elected officials and the legislative process to set policy in this area, not the role of businesses like Chipotle.

We always welcome the exchange of ideas and opinions: it is one of the many things that make our country such a special place. But this issue is not central to the operation of our business, and we do not feel that our restaurants should be used as a platform for either side of the debate.

Guess I'll have to go get a 2000 calorie burrito elsewhere now.
The law? The law is a human institution...

All I've seen is a pic. One is so big, he's not a Navy SEAL, he's a Navy WALRUS. The other guy looks like he's nine years old.

Listen, I get why they'd want to carry rifles in Texas. Open carry of a handgun is illegal, and maybe some guys can't get a CCP, so a rifle is their only option. But if you can conceal....dafuck, guys. Da. Fuck.

I'm of the opinion that carrying a rifle is douchey to begin with. I get it for rallies and protests and shit...but for fucking burritos? A rifle is the absolute worst thing to have to lug around, and keep out of the way, while trying to eat. It just looks retarded.

They didn't ban but asked. Open carrying a rifle is no different than a handgun. Your right, either way.

Everyone knows that I am all for the 2nd Amendment, but I have to agree...carrying a rifle in a restaurant is a little over the top! I have always believed that your pistol was designed to be carried with you at all times and should be reliable and formidable enough to get you to your rifle if things happen go south! Besides, who would want to carry a rifle while foraging through the salad bar? Even LEO's keep their rifles and shotguns in the vehicle until the need arises.

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

The only time and place I could understand carrying an AR-15 into a restaurant would be in North Philly. Big Grin

Um. Don't go there. There are no good places to eat anyway, unless you want Crown Chicken (every block), halal food, or hair weaves.

Just saying... Because I go through there all the time.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW
