Beats By Dr. Dre Special Event At Marquee New York

Rick Ross has a message for those who want to indulge in some lemon pepper chicken wings at one of his 25 Wingstop franchises.

Leave your weapons at home.

In an interview with the Huffington Post to discuss his other business ventures, including his endorsement of Luc Belaire Rare Rosé, the 38-year-old rapper was very clear on where he stood with carrying firearms in public.

“I support the right to bear arms, I do,” he told HuffPost. “I’m a licensed carrier.”

Ross’ Boss Wings franchises mostly dot the South, a place where some welcome the National Rifle Association’s near-religious fervor for Second Amendment orthodoxy. But the rapper doesn’t want guns in his restaurants.

“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.”

The gun debate hits close to home for Rozay, who, in March 2013, was ambushed by gunmen who shot at his Rolls Royce in Miami. Ross himself was carrying a 9 mm handgun with 12 live rounds. But as for packing rifles and such when sitting down to have a family meal, as most gun advocates in the South are doing to promote lax gun laws, he’s not here for it.

“That’s their personal choice, and that’s depending on the laws,” he said with a laugh. “But, me personally, I believe bringing a rifle into any closed building is too much.”
