    From a Facebook page:

    Gun fanbois with assault rifles in restaurants and other places of business sure would rattle me. I hope we can have a rational discussion on this for a while.

    I'm all for gun rights, but these people come across as the right-wing version of the woman who insists on breastfeeding in public because she can.
    Just because you CAN, doesn't mean you have to or SHOULD.
    Don't be douchebags, fellas. Leave the guns at home. If it so happens that on your visit to Chipotle it so happens to be the .0000000001 percent chance that someone decides to shoot the place up, let's just chalk it up to bad luck.

    I have a CCW permit and enjoy spending the occasional day at the range.

    And I think open carry is beyond stupid. Especially so with rifles and shotguns.

    By the way, Chipotle announced today that guns are no longer allowed in their restaurants.

    What about good food? Does Chipotle have any plans for allowing good food in its restaurants?

    Well, if those two aren't the poster boys for rational discussion, I don't know who is.

    On the .0000000001 percent chance that a couple of urban terrorists abruptly walk in and start shooting the place up, will these guys take out the bad guys swiftly and efficiently, or will they spray dozens of bullets over, around and through everyone in the room?

    I don't see any John McClane in either of them. Would they even get off a shot?

    Agreed. When I'm carrying, I don't want people to know - especially somebody who might try to take it from me.

    I dare anyone to cut in front of the guy on the left in the buffet line.

    Note the mags are locked and loaded, and I have to assume there are bullets chambered. That is idiotic. One bump is all it takes for a tragedy.

    Fringe loons are usually not very smart.
