Gun nuts shocked that people don’t want guns everywhere

A Texas gun rights group has called upon its more extreme members to stop the “going into Chipotle with huge guns and scaring all the kids” campaign.  Surprisingly, it hasn’t been very well received.

Responsible gun owners around the country (yes, there are some) spoke out against this stupid idea, and, I am happy to report, the nuts listened. chipotle-guns

“We must once again adjust in a way that shines a positive light on our efforts, our members, and our respective organizations,” they said. “We have decided the prudent path, to further our goals, is to immediately cease taking long guns into corporate businesses unless invited.”

Yeah, who would have ever seen that coming, huh?

These gun lovers have this movie-inspired vision that if a bad guy were to show up, their swift actions with their own guns would save the day — and just like in the movies, all the bad guys would miss, the good guys would never be hurt, and no innocent bystanders would ever be in danger.   Just like in the old west (where, by the way, the laws all prohibited bringing guns into any public place).

Ask any officer trained in how to deal with exactly this situation what the chances of that are, and then find out how many shoot-outs with actual, real, trained SWAT teams end up in the exact way they want them to.  Now imagine a bunch of Texans drinking margeritas in Chipotle and tell me what you think the result will be.

But for now, let’s at least be thankful that a few more sensible minds have taken hold in Texas.  (Never thought I’d type that sentence.)

  1. I have a legal reason to carry. And yet, even then I always try to avoid anyone actually seeing it. Open carry just makes you target number one to shoot first. I’ve never understood the failed logic that waving it around in public will keep trouble away–always just seems to magnetically draw it closer.

  2. You know, I’ve always wondered why the “gun nuts” don’t volunteer to serve in our nations military. Because that would seem to be one of the most logical ways for them to exercise their gun rights. *sigh* I guess It just must be one of those disconnects…
