Sonic. Chipotle. Chili's. Starbucks. Wendy's. Jack in the Box. Applebee's. What do these restaurant chains have in common?
Well each of them used to have no problem with law-abiding gun owners carrying their handguns, concealed or open, into their establishments. But currently, all of them have changed their policies and barred firearms on their premises either in Texas or nationwide thanks to a small but destructive group of squirrels known as "Open Carry Texas", whose members seem to get off on carying long guns into local businesses and yelling "Hey, look at us!" while snapping pictures and shooting video until the businesses react to the unfavorable attention and just ban firearms on their property. Because of their actions and their boorish behavior, restaurant chain after restaurant chain that heretofore never had a problem with open or concealed carry is now banning firearms. But these window-licking toads show no sign of knocking it off or taking a break and they apparently plan to keep doing this dumb shit until they've got every business in the state--or America--banning guns.
And if that's not accomplishment enough, now they want to publicly lock horns with the NRA, which is trying to rein them in and get them to act like mature adults.
It's official: Open Carry Texas has become to gun owners what the Westboro Baptist Church is to Christians.
If I were a Texan, I'd be organizing a posse of my fellow gun owners to tar and feather every one of these fruit loops before deporting them to California.
Seriously, someone needs to ask these dweebs why, if they want to carry rifles around 24/7, they aren't serving in Afghanistan or anywhere else that we've got troops deployed. They may well offer up a reason but my own guess is that they're too scared to stand against a real opponent but they still want to feel important so they compensate by making a big. blustery stand against other gun owners and private businesses that aren't actually posing any problems. Either that or they're paid operatives for the gun-banning side and they're doing this on purpose.
