Chipotle asks customers not to bring guns into its restaurants

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America
Should diners be able to openly carry guns in restaurants?

Chipotle Mexican Grill doesn't think so. The chain, founded in Denver by Steve Ells just over two decades ago, is asking customers not to bring firearms into its restaurants. The request follows a recent incident in which open-carry enthusiasts brought assault rifles into a Texas Chipotle.

"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," says a statement sent to us by a Chipotle spokesperson.

Disarming their customers and staff makes me more uncomfortable than anything. They have the right to decide whether people come into their restaurant armed, and people who are armed have a right not to eat there. It's sad for them to force the issue.

@Cognitive_Dissident Sitting next to a deranged right wing gun freak with his assault weapon of mass destruction would make me uncomfortable.  What could possibly go wrong when these paranoid little freaks go all Timothy McVeigh?


@muhutdafuga @Cognitive_Dissident bigoted much?  B/c sitting next to someone like you would be so safe.  You are probably the type to dive behind woman and children to save yourself.

Not everyone who owns or carries is like these two in the photo.  You are very close-minded; I suspect even more so than those you denigrate in your hate filled and histrionic screed.

@canoby @muhutdafuga @Cognitive_Dissident  As a radical right wing nut, you would dive onto the child for bad purposed.

You wouldn't like to sit next to me because facts burn you whiny little goobers.

Hate filled?  Just because good Americans hate you doesn't make them "hate filled."

Q:  Why does a radical right wing nut need an assault weapon of mass destruction to "protect" themselves?

A:  Because they'd be shaking so bad with fear that they'd be firing everywhere, killing every bystander, but missing the other right wing gun freak that went crazy (or in the case of conservatives, crazier).
