Gun Free Zone in Restaurant Backfires: Illiterate Criminal Shows up With Gun

| |

Top Tier Gear USA


By Rodney Lee Conover

Yesterday a restaurant in North Carolina was robbed at gunpoint despite having a sign up prohibiting guns on the premises.

The armed robber paid no attention to the sign, or maybe he couldn’t read it. Surely, if he had he would have promptly put his gun in his pants and just ordered a BBQ sandwich, averting disaster. That’s what criminals do, right? Avert disaster? They oblige warnings, respect authority and comply with official policy. Yeah, uh huh. Dream on.

Sadly,  gun-free zones are high on the list for mass killers when looking for a location.

Yes, they crave media attention and a high body count. But knowing their victims will be defenseless trumps the other factors, according to John Lott of Crime Prevention Research Center.

Okay, the guy robbing the restaurant differs somewhat from the killer that opened fire in an Aurora, CO theater and the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooter. Each of them calculated well in advance their strategy. Their strategy included the gun-free zone policy.

The April 29, 2014 killings at FedEx occurred in a gun-free zone marked with conspicuous signage.  Signs, in fact, advertise the fact that people will be easy targets, making an ideal setting for a robbery or massacre.

It’s simple, killers don’t follow the rules. They are cowards who count on unarmed citizens and children to fall without resistance, but with widespread drama and media coverage. They thrive on the attention. Faced with armed victims and no press coverage, the outcome would be very different.

Breitbart reported the following: 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.

On May 19, Moms Demand pressured Chipotle [restaurants] because a group of customers openly–and legally–carried their rifles into a Dallas Chipotle restaurant over the weekend.

Twitchy published Chipotle’s response to Moms Demand:

Recent participants from an “open carry” demonstration in Texas brought guns (including military-style assault rifles) into one of our restaurants, causing many of our customers anxiety and discomfort. Because of this we are respectfully asking that customers not bring guns into our restaurants, unless they are authorized law enforcement personnel.

This makes Chipotle the newest gun free zone in a long list of zones like Ft. Hood, the Aurora movie theater, Sandy Hook Elementary, the DC Navy Yard, Arapahoe High School, and on and on…

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 with which to fight back?

Perhaps the armed attack on “The Pit” can be of some help in answering this question.

Tomorrow I’m going to wear a sign of my own. It’ll read “Back off, I carry the 2nd amendment in my holster.”

    Isnt it ironic? Dont ya think?

    These Anti-gun fools keep screaming about banning gun. Where it is the gun that will stop some thing like this from happening. Criminal will think twice if you have a weapon.

    In factor I recommend everything should have a few taser guns at home or work place to burn any criminal ass if they come for a robbery.

    The African girls have no gun too, do we see Islam Terrorists be kind to them?

    These Anti-gun fools have to get a life and look at the world wide evidence that every Anti-gun countries are under tyranny from their own gov or criminal with weapons.

    It is when people wake up they need weapon to keep tyranny away and see the effectiveness themselves. Like these people:

    The US is an interesting place. You have to have guns as everyone (nearly everyone) has access to guns – this is unique to the US.

    • Kountry Bumpkin

      Don’t listen to this left wing idiot mamba, there is estimated to be between 270,000,000 and 310,000,000 guns held by private citizens here in the US, if what mamba is saying was true that gun owners don’t know any other way to resolve issues then to use force then it stands to reason that we would have at least 270,000,000 to 310,000,000 deaths per year from guns which we don’t.

      Actually you only need guns if there are black/brown people around. You can be in a whitopia or Chinatown with no crime.

    It’s clear you must live in some wonderful drug induced utopia. People like you most likely will end up as a news item on the 5 o’clock and a focal point of a homicide investigation where it is found that your last vestiges in life was you hiding in a back closet quivering punching 911 holding a steak knife as some drug fueled criminals kick down your front door to steal possessions rape and kill your wife and kids and put a bullet in your worthless ass.
    All because YOU are some kind of candyassed pansy that has no balls. Your dependency on others to protect you and your family sickens most people.
    People like YOU cost society far and away more than YOU ever will contribute.

    It must be nice, this Through the Looking Glass world in which you live. . .

    If you give a 5 year old a fire extinguisher, don’t be surprised when the house catches on fire – according to your “logic” (a term I use very loosely).

    If you give a 5 year old a first aid kit – don’t be shocked when people begin spontaneously bleeding. . .

    Intelligent, responsible people don’t just carry guns when expecting trouble – in the same way they don’t only keep a fire extinguisher handy when expecting a fire or only wear a seatbelt when expecting to get in an accident – they carry “in case of emergency.”

    Funny thing – you hear about a legal, lawful gun owner shooting someone “needlessly” about as often as you hear about a criminal obliging warnings, respecting authority, and complying with policy – which is to say, virtually never.

    As a matter of public safety, you should never breed – and if you have, drown the unfortunate spawn before they grow up to be as great a danger to public safety as you are.

    Are you ‘American’ (and by that, I mean a person living in the United States), if not where do you live? If you are, again, where do you live?

    • freewheelinfranklin543

      It’s a snaky troll,or haven’t you figured that out yet!

      • LexiconD1

        No, I did.

        I just wanted to see how ‘smart’ they think they are. See CANADA sits within AMERICA. As the entire two continents, over on this side of the Earth, are know as North and South AMERICA. Canada and the U.S. are in North America, a fact this poster certainly is unaware of.

        Frankly, anyone that stupid doesn’t need to ever own a gun.

        I am a United States citizen. I’m glad they aren’t. This subject (gun control BS and ‘American’s’) happen to be pet peeves of mine.

  • Phil Dirt

    No! say it isn’t true. Somebody actually brought a gun into a gun free zone? That’s really hard to believe.

    • 1stworlder

      The sign was not in ebonics

  • freewheelinfranklin543

    The most basic right a human being has is the right of self defense. Governments should be disarmed as they have murdered more people than anybody.
    After gun confiscation governments mass murder their populations.
    Go troll elsewhere long winded one!

  • freewheelinfranklin543

    Go troll elsewhere gov snake!

  • LexiconD1

    Guess you’ve never heard the saying, “Don’t bring a knife (or pepper spray) to a gun fight?”….

    Please, don’t breed.

    I has to take my wife out for sushi so my response is delayed.
    In your vigilance for taking “nonlethal” action up against Renfro the gang member and his Bros mostly armed with their preferred Glock 19s rummaging thru your home and you are going to out and puff up your chest and face off with them with what a whiffle bat, golf club, your 3 years of Karate, 2×4?
    My friend, your just dead that’s it!
    Keep adhering to your principals.
    But this conversation with you is pointless, it is like wrestling with a pig in the mud.
    Eventually I’ll realize that you the pig just likes wrestling in the mud!!

    Maybe you ought take a little trip down to South Central LA. 107th and Firestone, a lovely end of town.
    Mamba, DUDE, you live in a under populated wilderness. The types we are speaking of don’t operate in dick deep snow. However though I’ve heard that lovey Vancouver BC (BC is an acronym for Bring Cash) has it’s problems and is not quite the Canadian utopia as professed.
    Back in the 70s I use to run with a bunch of Canucks out of Elkford when they were down in Montana.
    Comparing Canada with the US crime wise, gun wise, %age of criminal types to populous, is just shy of ignorant. They are two different worlds apart.

    if you avoid blacks & Hispanics you avoid almost all the crime in the US.

    Black adults actually have the brainpower of 11yo kids so your 5yo scenario is off by a few years.

  • 1stworlder

    What is the percentage of non-Asian minorities in these safe areas? Chicago has the strictest gun restrictions in the US yet has the highest murder rate in the US. Over 500 murders last year.

    Here ya go Mamba, a little dose of reality just for you!

    Fox News LA 10:00 PM
    Lead stories.
    Bellflower, Ca 8:00pm
    Lone male enters a barbershop and shoots 4 males killing one.

    3 black males and 1 white male kick down front door confronting a 29 yo female holding twin infants, shoots her in the neck. Older male and a 7 yo male found zip tied in the backyard. Unharmed.

    This is just what makes the news. There is so much that goes unreported it’s ridiculous. How would I know? My ex has worked for a Sheriffs department down here since 1982.
    Shootings and murders go on here, everyday, EVERYDAY! Without fail!
    Oh and let’s not let law enforcement off of the hook here. Officer involved shootings/killings are a frequent occurrence. Just a guess without data, somewhere around every 3rd day. And yes, unarmed suspects.
    For years in her office there’s five officers that work with her and every day each of them respond to and investigate at least one unattended death, suspicious death, accidental death, self inflicted death, man slaughter, homicide, multiple homicide.
    98% of this shit never so much as makes the news paper let alone the mass lame stream media in LA.
    You want to the amazing thing though. RARLY is a homicide committed with a legally registered gun to the suspect.
    Ya we’re just a bunch fucking gun nuts out here in California looking to shoot somebody.
    Have a nice life but keep your nose in your own business. We’re big boys out here.
    Here’s another one.
