Remember a few months ago I wrote that Starbucks had a change of heart about allowing people to open carry in their stores, because of a few loud, strident open carry advocates, who decided to turn the coffee store into their own, personal grandstand?
Well, you’ve done it again, my dear friends. Only this time, you’ve alienated Chipotle.
Not satisfied with the restaurant’s policy of compliance with local laws regarding open or concealed carry, some decided to swagger about with their rifles, because… oh, they COULD!
Well, guess what!
You are now being asked to leave your firearm at home when visiting the store.
“Historically, we felt enough to simply comply with local laws regarding the open or concealed carrying of firearms,” the statement said.
However, “the display of firearms in our restaurants has now created an environment that is potentially intimidating or uncomfortable for many of our customers,” the statement said. “Because of this, we are respectfully asking that customers not bring guns into our restaurants, unless they are authorized law enforcement personnel.”
Good job! You couldn’t just get a friggin’ burrito, could you? You had to come into the restaurant and pose for photographs and play it up for the crowd, including pose for photos with your hardware.
You just had to show off, right?
Well, now that you’ve once again dragged a restaurant kicking and screaming into your politics, when all it wanted to do was sell some burritos, you’ve once again succeeded in accomplishing what the gun-grabbing idiot Mommies could not do – getting a restaurant to ban your strident asses from its premises.
Congratulations. Don’t you feel accomplished?
