Open Carry Tarrant County, recently removed from the larger Open Carry Texas group because they frightened Jack in the Box employees so much that some hid in the walk-in freezer, headed to a Dallas Chipotle on Saturday–packing heat, of course, because everyone knows that it’s necessary to show up armed to the teeth when eating at a restaurant.
Steve Marmel first made us aware that the armed mob shortly after they announced their intentions. Moms Demand Action worked to make people aware so that those who care about their safety could avoid the Victory Avenue location, given Open Carry’s history of making violent threats toward those who disagree with their decision to openly flaunt their boomsticks in public.
In the past, Open Carry Texas–especially the Tarrant County branch–has revealed the personal information of a woman who, because she was concerned, called the police to report that there was a mob of armed maniacs running around with long guns on an overpass–and has threatened to abuse FOIA requests to do the same to anyone else who stands up to them. Pro-insanity activists have also threatened those who dare oppose their decision to terrorize the public by stalking and spitting on a paralyzed victim of gun violence and shooting a female mannequin while joking that it was a representative of Moms Demand Action, and even showing up dozens-strong just to intimidate a group of four women meeting to discuss gun violence. One member posted a YouTube video explaining that he gets a “perverse pleasure” from terrorizing and intimidating the women.
Given the group’s violent and downright insane history, Moms Demand Action spoke out against the Chipotle demonstration, urging people to call and voice their disapproval. After being notified, Chipotle said that it “takes no position” on the issue. However, by “taking no position,” Chipotle fails to realize that it is actually saying that the safety of its customers takes a backseat to the whims of violent gun fanatics.
AATTP contacted the manager of the location, Raul, and explained the situation. He initially repeated Chipotle corporate’s statement that they “take no position” but after it was explained that he was not considering the safety of customers he agreed to request that they put their guns away–and that he would not serve them if they did not comply.
Needless to say, we were surprised when we discovered that Raul lied to us. Stephanie Lundy contacted AATTP to let us know that the gun fanatics were, in fact, served while packing heat.
We found Alfonso Delcampo, who posts on Facebook as Flakoo Delcampo, and what we saw was disconcerting at best. Below are some interesting photos culled from the wannabe gangster’s public posts on Facebook, including his responsible decision to place heavy weaponry in the hands of a toddler:
We are severely disappointed that Chipotle has elected to place its customers’ safety–especially after an accidental gun discharge in a Utah location earlier this year–beneath these idiots’ desire to terrorize the public by bringing heavy weaponry into a restaurant in which children are present.
Currently, Texas requires no background check, no license, no training, and has no age restrictions for some of the more dangerous legal guns on the market.
