Jack In The Box Would 'Prefer' Guests Not Bring Guns Inside Restaurants
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 11 May 2014 | by AWR HAWKINS

Posted on 05/11/2014 5:43:15 PM PDT by kingattax

On May 9th Jack in the Box announced it would "prefer guests not bring their guns inside [Jack in the Box] restaurants."

This announcement comes in response to a Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (Moms Demand) campaign aimed at securing an all-out gun ban in Jack in the Box corporate stores. Moms Demand also wanted franchises to be pressured into banning guns as well.

Moms Demand started the campaign after customers legally carried their rifles into a Fort Worth, Texas, Jack in the Box last week.

Nothing wrong with the company making their preference known, as long as they ultimately respect the law.

I was in Las Vegas recently and I tried one of their burgers. I can say authoritatively that their burgers will not be missed by anybody.

Burger King is still the best of the bunch.

Even though it is Mother’s Day, I will still say: I am so sick of these ‘mom’ groups.

The other one was Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), whose efforts got us the ridiculous .08 DUI limit.

It seems to me that, if they are creating a policy in place where they are deciding that customers cannot protect themselves on the restaurant premises, Jack is telling the customers that they will assume that responsibility and all the risks associated with that responsibility.

Exactly. Now, I’m not one of these ‘the customer is always right’ types - we all know that’s an outright fantasy - but you deliver what you promise with a smile, and you get my return business. If the law says I’m not doing anything wrong and you honor that, deliver the product you advertise, then I’ll spend my hard-earned dollars at your fine establishment again.

This might sound ludicrous, but that’s never stopped me from posting.

If I were a mom, I would be very reserved about arming myself because the kids get into everything, including the guns. So inventors need to figure a way for moms to arm themselves without having to worry about the kids playing with mom’s gun and accidentally hurting themselves - or worse.

Also, gun experts need to find a way to train both mom and kids so that the kids know what to do in various situations if mom ever has to pull her gun.

The point is that these moms are probably trying to limit guns because they have no training to safely use a gun to protect both themselves and their kids when in public settings.

It's all in the wording.

Prefer is a polite nudge, and that's it.

(In Cali, there is no OC anyhoo.)

I would absolutely still eat at one of their restaurants; providing I was really, really hungry, and there was not an In n Out within 20 miles or so.

We were surprised by just how many JIBs there were in Vegas. Seemed like every couple of blocks. Their sirloin burgers are pretty good.

WAT. Try Wendy's (has stepped up its game recently) or In-n-Out Burger. Carl's/Hardees also not bad.

They have invented a way for moms to arm themselves and keep their kids safe. ITs called keeping your gun in your possession at all times and safe from little hands. Once the kids are bigger (6-8) depending on the kids, its time to learn safe gun handling and take a gun safety class

I have other dangerous tools around my children as well....and there are things more dangerous than guns to children in every house. I know many moms who are armed, know how to use their firearms and know how to keep them safe. God help anyone who threatens one of my kids in a public or private setting. They will have very little time to regret their action....

Regarding my previous post, the Flashbang holster would seem to be a good starting point for mothers arming themselves when kids are present.
FLASHBANG HOLSTERS
Flashbang Holster THE Original bra holsterl! Accept no substitutes!

(Note no children in this particular video.)

There remains the issue of training the kids to best protect themselves for when mom has to use her bra gun in public settings.

It’s called a holster and you keep it on your body.

My female cousin has a bra holster, I’m pretty sure you could put a holster SOMEWHERE on your body that your kids can’t, or you won’t let them touch.

Yes. The reason that I mentioned "braw gun" is because gun training for moms with kids is ultimately going to have to prepare moms to teach the kids the proper terminilogy for when the kids start teasing mom about her "braw gun." In fact, kids are predictably going to play games where they act out mom reaching for her braw gun.

Again, moms need to be trained to deal with that stuff.

Shadowstrike, you inpired other questions that armed moms with children will need to be trained to deal with. For example, do moms want only one, or more rounds in their guns?

That question was inspired by a woman who carried a gun with only one round. Her reasoning was that an assailant would probably wrestle the gun from her and use it on her.

Then she was involved in a situation where what she predicted about an assailant getting control of her gun actually happened, but only after she had shot him with the single bullet.

Or should women have at least two rounds in their guns, one round for a warning shot and the other for the assailant if necessary?

And if the guys have to stop and think about the best response to such questions then gun-carrying moms would undoubtedly appreciate their insights.

Again, armed moms w/children need to be trained to separate the gossip from the expert advice concerning how many rounds to carry.

I raised holy hell in a Jack one time, their employees not only didn’t speak English, they were rude and condescending to me and telling me how to speak. I called corporate the next day and told them I was turning them in for hiring illegals. It was CA and they don’t care, but I got a bunch of free food which I gave to my daughter.
