Punchlines: Even NRA is afraid of open-carry group

12:07 PM, Jun. 6, 2014  |  Comments

It's a sure sign that a gun-rights organization's protests have gone too far when they draw the ire of the National Rifle Association. And it's also a sure sign that it's time to run when the NRA, the most powerful gun lobby in the U.S., becomes so afraid of the organization in question that it retracts its original criticisms.

And that's exactly what happened in Texas. The group Open Carry Texas, which is leading demonstrations in restaurants like Chipotle, has gone too far - well, sort of - even by NRA standards. This Chipotle chiprotest - as one late-night comic calls it - includes patrons taking rifles into casual dining establishments and demanding to be served.

The NRA originally said that it was weird for Open Carry Texas to flash rifles in public just because it can. And one late-night comic agrees. What's next, he asked, a shootout at the Golden Corral?

Take a look at our favorite jokes about this latest gun-rights protest in today's Punchlines.
