Jack in the Box Caves to Gun Control Pressure, Restricts Open Carry

Editor's note: This post has been updated.

Jack in the Box, a popular fast-food restaurant chain, has followed Starbucks' unfortunate lead in limiting its customers' Second Amendment rights. Friday, the company announced it would start enforcing its no-firearms-in-stores policy. Jack in the Box’s Vice President of Corporate Communications Brian Luscomb released this statement:


“The presence of guns inside a restaurant could create an uncomfortable situation for our guests and employees and lead to unintended consequences.”

The company's decision comes a day after gun control group Moms Demand Action launched a petition to pressure the restaurant to enforce the policy. They started the campaign in response to a semi-automatic rifle demonstration inside a Texas-based Jack in the Box restaurant last week. The group ran with the rumor that customers were so terrified that they locked themselves in the store freezer. But, that story has since been debunked.

Moms Demand Action has a history of making false accusations against gun rights activists in order to push their political agenda -- and then refusing to apologize for it. Here's a video of founder Shannon Watts literally running away from conservative talk radio host Dana Loesch.

With this latest political stunt, Moms Demand Action has proven they're not quite done with stripping Americans' of their Second Amendment rights. The group patted themselves on the back for Jack in the Box's decision with this statement on their Facebook page:


YOU DID IT, MOMS! We’ve proven again and again that when moms speak up, American businesses listen. Like Starbucks, Facebook and Instagram, Jack in the Box has answered our call to put public safety first.

Of course, it wouldn't be proper gun control activism without a picture of a young girl eating a hamburger. They need to invoke the 'it's all about the children' card somehow:
