The NRA, in a statement following open carry protests at restaurants and other public places, has called such protests “weird and certainly not a practical way to go normally about your business while preparing to defend yourself.”

Open carry protests have gained media attention recently as the Mexican fast-food chain Chipotle asked customers in Dallas, Texas not to bring their assault-style weapons into their restaurants.  This is not the first time restaurants have asked customers not to bring their weapons into their stores.  Last year, Starbucks also asked gun-owners to leave their weapons at home when they want to enjoy their coffee.

Chipotle’s communications director Chris Arnold made a statement last month, according to CNN, saying, “We are respectfully asking that customers not bring guns into our restaurants, unless they are authorized law enforcement personnel.”

The gun rights group Open Carry Texas was upset by the statements made by the NRA, and the group has threatened to withdraw support of the NRA if they do not redact their comments according to Al-Jazeera America.

OCT also made a post on their Facebook page showing a picture of a destroyed NRA membership card with statements calling for the NRA to stop dividing their members and for the group to support gun rights everywhere.

A poll by the Pew Research Center has claimed people now own guns for personal protection rather than hunting or any other reason.  With this poll in mind, the Week makes the claim individuals carrying guns openly into restaurants are making “people feel unsafe.”

In their statement, the NRA concludes by saying when “people act without thinking, or without consideration for others- especially when it comes to firearms- they set the stage for further restrictions on our rights.”
