Second Amenu-ment

On Monday
Chipotle Mexican Grill

in response
to the 10,000-signature
Moms Demand Action
for Gun Sense petition

prompted by several gun aficianados
bringing loaded semi-automatics
into a Dallas restaurant

made the decision
to ban gun-carrying customers
from the premises.

It seems unlikely
that our Founding Fathers
intended our right to bear arms

to extend to conscionably-delicious
Mexican chain restaurants

but then again
they didn't have to worry

about servers
skimping on the guac

in their carnitas burrito bowls.
