Gun Free Durham Barbecue Joint Surprisingly Robbed

I know, you’re shocked. I remember reading about the robbery the other day, seriously, how dare someone rob a barbecue joint here in NC? That’s considered sacrilege in the South. But, there is a hitch

(Daily Caller[1]) A barbecue restaurant in Durham, North Carolina, was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday night, despite having posted a sign on the door banning weapons, including concealed firearms.

According to ABC 11[2], three men wearing hoodies and carrying pistols entered The Pit from the back, assaulted two of the employees and made others lie on the floor. The assaulted employees, though, are doing well. (snip)

According to Guns ‘n’ Freedom[3], however, “This should be a clear reminder that criminals don’t obey gun laws and they don’t obey signs on windows that say that can’t bring their guns inside. These signs only stop law abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves and make the establishment a bigger target for crooks. After all, why pick a target where people can shoot back at you?”

They also point out that it wasn’t a simply sign, but custom made

We also learn from Guns ‘n’ Freedom[4]

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[5], 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.

I’m not a big advocate of people bringing rifles, shotguns, any long guns into eateries, they’d be best off left in their vehicles, but to specifically ban guns, including concealed carry, invites criminals. Sure, even without the “gun free zone” signs there can still be crime, but why solicit it?

Fortunately, the anti-gunnites are writing up an 8 year old for drawing a picture of a gun[6]. No, this is not a repeat of other reports.
