    Default Chipotle Takes Bold Stand Against Guns

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_5354569.html


    NEW YORK (AP) — Chipotle is asking customers not to bring firearms into its stores after it says gun rights advocates brought military-style assault rifles into one of its restaurants in Texas.

    Good for them.

    I know some on here disagree, but I just don't want to live in a country where walking around in the open with a firearm is considered a good thing.

    According to the article, guns aren't banned, they just politely asked customers to not bring guns into the store.

    The announcement came after a petition by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, which has called on other companies to ban firearms in their stores as well. The group said its petition was in reaction to open-carry gun activists appearing at a Dallas-area Chipotle restaurant over the weekend.

    Erika Soto Lamb, a spokeswoman for the group, said she thought the move by Chipotle was a "bold statement," especially considering its previous stance of complying with local laws.
    I don't get their logic here. It's not like someone who is going to commit a crime is going to abide by their stupid "bans" so what difference does it make if a permitted holder brings their gun in with them--especially when they have a chance of stopping someone from committing a murder...or worse, a mass murder?

    I do get that we don't want guys just walking in with their rifles slung over their shoulder, because we aren't used to seeing guns in public unless they are in the hands of a police officer or a criminal. When they walk in like that, they clearly aren't officers, so people automatically assume the worst.

    The solution is a "keep your weapons concealed" policy, which makes much more sense.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I love Chipotle, and had a gun on me when I got my delicious burrito this past Saturday. I have no problem with a private company deciding to take a stand against guns. I disagree, but I will still eat there.

    I own firearms too, I just don't walk into Chipotle with my semi-automatic shotgun slung over my back.

    Just put a sign on the door saying to please check your guns. Then the holdups will start.

    It will not make a damn difference either way. They can't stop CCP holders from entering with them, and the criminals don't care. PR MOVE.

    the "gun rights advocates" who did this are in serious need of a life in my opinion. They're also doing a nice job giving the other side ammo (see what i did there) in the non-stop fight to make their lives more difficult. A little bit of respect from both sides would go a long way in situations like this.

    I support open carry but would just as soon nobody know what sort of weapons I own. Even if open carry was legal here I would still conceal.

    I think that's the respectful thing to do. If you're sitting beside me in a restaurant and have a gun concealed I don't care (because I don't know). I've probably eaten in a couple of hundren american restaurants so it's pretty likely i've sat near someone to had a concealed weapon. No issue with it at all. And you also might be very useful if the unthinkable happens and there's some sort of robbery. But if you place that weapon on the table or have it visible, I will quietly walk out of that restaurant and likely never return. I imagine this is what the restaurant was afraid of. They needed to make a statement to ensure people weren't afraid of eating there.

    I agree. I debated this with a friend the other day. She hates guns and thinks we should stop pretending and just do open carry, like the wild west. I don't like open carry, because now the gun is a political banner rather than a method of protection. If you are really wearing it for the unthinkable, hide it until you need it.

    There are two ways to mark yourself as an unrepentant splotchy engorged asshole in a Chipotle. One is to order the quesarito at rush hour. The other is to order anything with a semiautomatic assault rifle in your arms, at the ready. One of these is going away. It's not the quesarito.

    Take a good look at that picture: two honorable, decent patriotic citizens exercising their constitutional right to scare the fuck out of Dallas-area burrito-munchers.
