ABSTRACT
The article discusses the stand taken by independent restaurants in Boise, Idaho in response to pressing social and political issues such as carrying fully-loaded firearms in public spaces. Restaurant consultant Harris Eckstut has said that business managers are not responsible over broader social climate on gun-free policy. He thinks that the Open Carry Texas members have become counterproductive to the cause of the National Rifle Association in protecting the Second Amendment freedom.
