Bloomberg's Gun Group Says It Is Now Safe To Eat Burritos At Chipotle r
Business Insider ^ | MAY 20, 2014 | COLIN CAMPBELL

Posted on 05/24/2014 2:48:12 PM PDT by kingattax

Everytown for Gun Safety, the gun control group spearheaded by billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has officially declared victory just one day after launching its campaign to get Chipotle to change its policy on customers carrying guns in its restaurants.

Everytown issued a statement Monday in reponse to reports some customers brandished large rifles in at least one of Chipotle's Texas locations last weekend.

In the statement, Everytown demanded the Mexican food chain create a "clear policy prohibiting guns in restaurants." Hours later, Chipotle announced it will request customers keep their guns at home from now on.

In an email to supporters Tuesday, Everytown celebrated what it described as a new era of safety at burrito joints.

The "Victory Burrito" in Everytown for Gun Safety's email to supporters.

I have no desire to go to Chipotle now, but then again I’m not an armed robber.

Not much of a victory for Everytown since my concealed pistol is still permitted.

Not that I would eat there anyway. If I want an overpriced burrito with not enough meat, I’ll go to Moe’s!

Even if I liked Chipotle, I won’t spend my money where the only people that are allowed guns are cops and criminals, and , er............sometimes that’s the same thing.

It is now perfectly safe for armed robbers and mass shooters.

It’s NEVER SAFE to eat burritos. You can’t expect a bunch of maggots from New Yawk to know that. “Come on ice cream!” - Cheech Marin.

They can request all they want, but they can’t legally prevent people from being armed. Hardly a victory, bloomerburger.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

It’s not safe to eat at Chipotle. Too many criminals with guns can walk freely in and rob the place and everybody in it.

It’s probably more dangerous than ever before to eat there now.

How many shooting were there at Chipotles BEFORE the request to not carry?

Yup. I laugh at people who say how good Chipotle is for “Mexican” food. It’s awful. I haver about 10 tacquerias withing a 2 mile radius of me that are all much better.

Chipotle is to Tex-Mex or Mexican food what McDonalds is to a steakhouse.

Good luck with that, Chipotle. It didn’t work out very well for the Barbeque Pit.

Won’t eat there again.

HMMMM, my local Chipotle’s has posted no indication of asking concealed carry permit holders to not enter their restaurant with a firearm. The sign in the window yesterday was the same sign which is in many establishments (and required by insurance carriers) and only warns that entry without a permit while carrying is a felony in Texas. Notwithstanding the corporate announcements of their desires or positions, until the legally mandated 30.06 sign is posted, I will continue to enjoy Chipotle’s. If the required 30.06 sign is posted, I will never darken their doors again.

Other than laziness, does anything prevent us from protesting with signs in front of their stores. I’m sure they would feel some pain in the Dallas and Houston suburbs (where gun ownership is virtually state law), if we protested.
