NC Store Posts ‘No Weapons Allowed’ Sign. Restaraunt Owners Learn Armed Robbers are illiterate or Don’t Care.
I guess BBQ can be so delicious and dangerous that it might cause people to pull out their guns and shoot each other for that last bite of Lexington Style Juicy Pork Shoulder BBQ. The Pit in North Carolina thought they resolved the issue by putting up a ‘No Weapons’ sign. Looks like the real bad guys couldn’t read the sign last Monday as a trio of boys looking to rob the joint, enter the establishment, totally ignoring the ‘No Weapons Allowed’ sign.
“The Pit” is a restaurant in North Carolina with a sign on its window that reads:
“No Weapons.. No Concealed Firearms.”
On Monday, May 19th, the restaurant owners learned just how powerless their deterrent was to criminals. Surveillance footage shows three armed men coming in the backdoor, assaulting two of the employees and forcing them to the floor. Fortunately for the employees, no one was seriously injured.
Criminals, by definition, do not follow the law. The tragic spree shootings at the movie theater in Aurora, Newtown, and other instances bear that painful lesson out. If you disarm good law-abiding people, you’re just making it that much easier for criminals to find helpless victims.
When 3 armed men walk in the place of business I’m in do you know what I wish in that moment? I say to myself ‘sure hope there’s someone here who has a gun to protect us from those bad guys’. That’s can’t happen if good people aren’t allowed to arm themselves to protect other good people. By creating ‘Gun Free Zones’ you are reassuring BAD people that they can hurt others without any retaliation. Thanks for the brilliant thinking ‘The Pit’.
