A gun control group backed by billionaire Mike Bloomberg is calling on Mexican food chain Chipotle to ban guns following a meeting of open carry activists in a Texas restaurant this past weekend. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is circulating a petition in response to an “armed trip” to a Dallas-area Chipotle by representatives of Open Carry Texas.
A Facebook photo of the gathering cropped up on social media. Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, said, “Moms want to know that when we take our families out to eat burritos, we won’t be confronted with bullets.” Open Carry Texas founder C.J. Grisham told Forbes that this past weekend’s activity was not a demonstration, but simply a meal following an event.
