Put down the gun and step away from the burrito. That's the message coming from the National Rifle Association after a few open-carry protesters sidled into a Texas Chipotle while brandishing their assault rifles, creating such a scene that the chain restaurant issued a statement urging customers to leave their weapons at home in the future.

Saying such demonstrations "crossed the line from enthusiasm to downright foolishness," the NRA, in a candid announcement flagged by Talking Points Memo, sided with the burrito joint.

"Not only is it rare, it's downright weird," to go to the fast-food joint draped in assault rifles, the NRA said. "Using guns merely to draw attention to yourself in public not only defies common sense, it shows a lack of consideration and manners."
