    Gun Control Activists Target Jersey Mike’s Over Open Carry

    Anti-gun activists, including Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action, are targeting the Jersey Mike’s chain of sandwich shops after the brand’s Twitter account failed to treat tweets calling for the group to ban firearms from their stores with the deference gun control advocates believe they deserve.

    The whole thing started over the weekend, when a Twitter user posted a picture of a pretty awful display of open carrying at his local Jersey Mike’s.

    Somewhere along the line the Twitter responses went from “Dude, what are you doing?” to “wHy WoN’t JeRsEy MiKe’S bAn GuNs??!” As Business Insider notes, the Jersey Mike’s Twitter account responded to several comments demanding a gun ban in stores with the statement, “If the laws were up to us, we’d make it so everyone had to eat Jersey Mike’s Subs on Sundays.” I suppose they could have tweeted out some bit of benign corporate speech like “We appreciate your concerns and endeavor to treat our customer’s safety with the utmost importance. Your opinions are important to us as we are constantly evaluating how best to serve the most important part of the Jersey Mike’s family; you the customer.”

    Instead, they went with the lighthearted response, and as you can imagine, gun control activists were not pleased by the audacity of responding to calls to ban guns with a semi-snarky comment. Shannon Watts was among those who seized on the joking tweet to demand action.

    Apparently the pressure got to them, because Monday evening Jersey Mike’s took down its earlier tweets and said simply “Thank you. We apologize. We want to always do better.” As you can imagine, that wasn’t enough for gun control activists, who began stating that the sandwich chain had been “making light of gun deaths.”

    Keep in mind, this was originally about a dude open carrying a pistol that looked like it was about to fall out of his pants. Now, after gun control activists have grabbed ahold of the narrative, it’s suddenly about Jersey Mike’s supposedly not caring about gun deaths.

    Well, the original post had a point. That's some $#@!ty carry.

    But, and learn your lesson well, you cannot be comical, you cannot do anything but SUBMIT.

    Their answer should have been... "We support every Americans rights. Your First amendment rights to criticize our policies, but also those regarding the Second Amendment."

    But, then again, it IS "NEW JERSEY Mike's."

    No offense, but if that's a real pic, the guy is dumb as a box of rocks. If you are carrying open carry it's rather WISE to use a retention holster. The one he's using seems designed for CC. I'm not against open carry, but I would argue most people that do are attention whores or wanna be pretend Cowboys. Sorry about your penis types. And then they open it up to complete ridicule like this numbnut does.

    Yep, hybrid inside the waste band holster. Generally for concealed carry. It is acceptably secured by the fitted plastic of the holster, with no strap of any kind. But if it is in the back and isn’t concealed, someone else may have better access than you. It won’t fall out though.

    In the “wrong neighborhood”, people mostly clear out and stay away if they think you are a cop or detective. Much more dangerous to look like a potential victim.

    best one I've ever found.

    If this little petite girl can wear without notice, than anyone can. I can wear mine with a t shirt and shorts and it's completely hidden.

    Lol. Fairly well concealed, except upon close inspection, and this person would often attract closer inspection...

    Also note that she says she would use this holster for open carry, which is what the guy in the OP was doing. (Except for the fact that the dude in the OP is wearing it backwards. He has no hand that can properly draw that weapon, which is a stupid way to carry).

    I just got this in the mail today for my S&W .40. It has a Level II retention (thumb release).

    I've got to get some firewood stacked before the rain comes in, but I'll post later tonight about my thoughts on it.

    And just a thought, giving the benefit of the doubt, perhaps that is his wife's concealed carry and she went to shop at a store that doesn't allow it while he went for subs. So he just stuck it in his waistband. Still not smart but that seems more likely than him carrying two sidearms arranged like that.

    If his woman is left handed, she can stand on his right with her left hand behind his back...

    Well, that's what led me to the thought. He's right handed judging by his OWB carry. The IWB is left hand carry. That leads me to believe that his wife went shopping in a non-carry store and he went for subs.
