Over the weekend, a group of Open Carry members demonstrated their right to carry firearms into a Dallas Chipotle. Predictably, this made a lot of people uncomfortable. In response, Chipotle politely asked its customers to please not do that. If anyone is angry about Chipotle's stance, Jon Stewart explains:

"We all know that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. But here's the problem with open carrying of assault rifles: no one else in that Chipotle knows you're a good guy. They just know you have a gun! And here's the thing: even if you put your gun up and go, 'Don't worry everybody, we're good guys!' that's the type of thing a clever bad guy might say."

Certainly, bad news for Americans who like to "hunt and kill their own burritos."
