In Texas, Open Carry started carrying guns in restaurants, to prove the point that you are free to carry your weapons wherever you wish. Chipotle didn’t like the idea, and a lot of other restaurants noticed how nervous the non-gun-carrying patrons appear when these champions of the 2nd Amendment showed up with their god-given toys.
The problem with carrying a gun everywhere is that you carry a gun, everywhere, and that makes normal people nervous. Open Carry Texas thought the opposite would happen.
In the statement, also posted on its Facebook page, Open Carry Texas acknowledged that its tactics, which are intended to encourage broader acceptance of firearms in public, were having the opposite effect. Carrying rifles and shotguns into businesses is the approach that has “gotten the most resistance and suffered the largest setbacks,” the group said. HuffPo
