Chipotle never really wanted to take sides in the 2nd amendment debate, but by bowing to the pressure of Bloomberg’s anti-gun groups they have made it clear that gun owners are not welcome — at least not if they want to protect themselves.
Now the Everytown for Gun Safety group (which is supposed to be grassroots by having $50 million poured into it by billionaire Michael Bloomberg) is saying that Chipotle is now a safe place to eat. The Everytown Facebook page claimed “victory” with the above photo.
By the way, I tried to add some intelligence to the conversation over at the Everytown page but I was promptly banned from the page and can no longer leave comments. I guess I should feel honored.
Moms Demand Action and several other anti-gun groups (controlled by Bloomberg) took action against the Mexican food chain after some open carriers went to the restaurant and had some pictures taken. Apparently every anti-gunner in America was scared to death to eat at Chipotle knowing that law abiding citizens could be armed there.
In an email to supporters Tuesday, Everytown celebrated what it described as a new era of safety at burrito joints.
“This is a crucial victory for our movement — not only because we can now feel safer to enjoy a burrito in Chipotle, but because it sends a message to business owners everywhere that the safety of their customers must come first,” the email said.
Along with the statement, the email contained an image of a burrito with “VICTORY” written underneath it.
“Victories like these only occur because of the power of this movement and the actions of dedicated supporters like you,” it continued. “Thank you for being a part of our work. It really is making a difference.”
Despite its new gun policy, Chipotle insists it is a neutral party in the Second Amendment debate.
“We always welcome the exchange of ideas and opinions: it is one of the many things that make our country such a special place,” Chipotle said in a lengthy statement yesterday. “But this issue is not central to the operation of our business, and we do not feel that our restaurants should be used as a platform for either side of the debate.”
