Restaurant Robbed At Gun Point For Third Time Since Guns Were Banned From Store

Those in the pro-gun control camp believe that gun-free zone signs are enough to deter criminals. People with a little more common sense, however, understand that criminals are not law-abiding people to begin with and so it’s best to allow law-abiding citizens to carry inside establishments. When that right is taken away in favor of a sign, this is what happens:

You have to wonder if the CEO of Jack in the Box is kicking himself after making the decision to request all gun owners to leave their guns at home. It was not even 2 weeks ago that Jack in the Box essentially banned guns from their fast food joints, and now the third armed robbery has taken place since then.

According to Click2Houston, 4 men put on gloves and masks before walking into a Houston Jack in the Box, robbing the restaurant at gunpoint. The armed crooks robbed both employees and customers who were eating at the fast food place.

Who would have thought that criminals would break the restaurant’s policy? But at least they did not have any law abiding gun owners to try and stop them and make their job more dangerous. These gun owners would have to either leave their guns at home or eat somewhere else.

For this to happen for the 3rd time in about 10 days has to make one wonder if armed criminals are just targeting Jack in the Box since they know law abiding citizens will not be armed there. You can read about the 1st armed robbery at Jack in the Box that we reported here.

The whole gun-ban fiasco at Jack in the Box started with some gun owners who were open carrying at another Jack in the Box a few weeks ago. Anti-gun groups saw the pictures and were so outraged by it that they fabricated all kinds of lies about employees cowering in fear in locked coolers.

Because of pressure from Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety Jack in the Box decided to ask gun owners to disarm themselves.

Three armed robberies since the new gun-free policy was implemented…What will it take for the CEO of Jack in the Box and other companies to realize that gun-free zones can actually do more harm than good to their businesses, employees, and customers?
