Short version: Because criminals — by definition — do not obey laws.
A Durham, North Carolina restaurant with a sign on its front door reading, “No Weapons, No Concealed Firearms,” was robbed at gunpoint on May 19.
Gunsnfreedom.com published a photograph of the sign on May 21, making “The Pit” restaurant a self-declared gun free zone–the same kind of zone Michael Bloomberg and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America pressure other restaurants into becoming.
According to Durham’s ABC 11, around 9 PM “three men wearing hoodies entered the restaurant through the back doors with pistols, and forced several staff members to lie on the floor.” The armed men “also assaulted two employees during the crime.”
The suspects are still on the loose.
When Chipotle announced their intended gun ban by saying the sight of law-abiding citizens carrying guns caused customers “anxiety and discomfort,” Breitbart News responded with a simple question:
If law-abiding citizens caused customers “anxiety and discomfort,” what will those customers feel like when a criminal enters Chipotle, now confident that no victim in the restaurant is allowed to have a gun which which to fight back?
Perhaps the armed attack on “The Pit” can be of some help in answering this question.
