A Downtown Dallas Restaurant Has a Message for NRA Convention Attendees

So far, the National Rifle Association and the 70,000 estimated attendees at this weekend's convention have received a warm welcome to Dallas. From the "NRA enables domestic terrorists" projected onto the convention center last night to the protests planned outside the convention all weekend, there are a lot of eyes on downtown.

Downtown restaurants stand to make a few extra bucks this weekend, and conference attendees who eat at one West End restaurant will find a message on their receipts: "Thanks for visiting Ellen's! A portion of this week's proceeds will be donated to organizations dedicated to implementing reasonable and effective gun regulations. Welcome to Dallas!"

Joe Groves, Ellen's owner, posted a photo of the restaurant's receipt copy on Facebook today.

"I’m making a list of the vile, racist, moronic conversations overheard from NRA attendees eating at the restaurant," he wrote. "They don’t even speak softly."

Welcome to Dallas!
