On May 11 Breitbart News reported that Jack in the Box told law-abiding customers it would “prefer” they not bring guns into its restaurants any more.
Since then, there have been three incidents at Jack in the Box restaurants involving armed men who prey on unarmed ones.
Most recent was a robbery that took place on May 20 at a Jack in the Box in Houston, Texas. According to click2Houston.com, four armed men not only robbed the store but also the patrons inside. One of the four men has been arrested.
KHOU.com reported a May 18 robbery at another Houston Jack in the Box that took place in the parking lot, where an armed man shot and robbed another man outside the restaurant.
On May 13, just days after Jack in the Box asked law-abiding citizens to leave their guns home, GunsSaveLives.net carried a WKRN-TV report about a man who was shot in the parking lot of a Nashville Jack in the Box after refusing to buy drugs from a man who cornered him outside.
Does Jack in the Box still “prefer” that law-abiding citizens remain unarmed?
