DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – With about 80,000 National Rifle Association (NRA) members attending four days of its annual meeting in downtown Dallas, the owner of a Dallas restaurant says he thought it was a good opportunity to start a conversation — but he may have set off a storm.
“No NRA member wants kids to get slaughtered. No NRA member wants cops to get killed. And people like me don’t want to take their guns away either. Can we not have both?” said Joe Groves, owner of Ellen’s.
The article goes on to state the following:
On Friday morning, Ellen’s printed this message on its receipts: “A portion of this week’s proceeds will be donated to organizations dedicated to implementing reasonable and effective gun regulations.”
Almost immediately, Ellen’s started getting calls from NRA convention attendees.
So, Ellen’s changed the message to say: “A portion of this week’s proceeds will be donated to organizations dedicated to implementing reasonable and effective gun regulations that protect citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights and also help reduce needless gun violence.”
That wasn’t good enough for some NRA members, as they feel there are already too many gun regulations. Ellen’s receipt message was reported to the NRA, sparking a tweet and a boycott effort.
Attn @AnnualMeetings attendees. Steer clear of Ellen’s in downtown Dallas! Why go there when there are so many other great choices. 🤔#sorrynotsorry#StandAndFight#DefendTheSecondpic.twitter.com/joX7pPoPm4
