Rap Star Rick Ross loves Wingstop, a Dallas-based restaurant that specializes in chicken wings. In fact, he loves it so much that he purchased 25 franchises.
Though the rapper exercises his right to keep and bear arms, he does not believe that guns belong in restaurants.
“I support the right to bear arms, I do,” he told HuffPost. “I’m a licensed carrier.”
However, Ross added, “When I go into public places, when I go out and I enter certain places, I believe it’s best to leave your firearm in your vehicle,” he said. “Go in and enjoy your meal.”
Given that Ross is no stranger to the need to protect oneself outside the home, in March of 2013, gunmen shot at his Rolls Royce on a Florda street, it’s interesting that he would be opposed to allowing law-abiding citizens to carry in establishments that serve food.
To that point, he was asked about the open-carry Texas demonstrations and the fallout that ensued when restaurants like Chipotle, Sonic and Chili’s started requesting that gun owners leave firearms at home despite the fact that they weren’t violating any state laws.
“That’s their personal choice, and that’s depending on the laws — that’s in Texas,” said Ross. “But, me personally, I believe bringing a rifle into any closed building is too much.”
