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.
>>go to hell all you little domestic enemies in “moms demand”<<
FVoVC — “Future Victims of Violent Crime.”
I’m seeing a connection here...
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.

They are just saying they “prefer” guests not bring their guns. I don’t have a problem with that...I won’t follow it but they can “prefer” what they wish!!!
I’m seeing a connection between open carry and a polite clientele who will help let me and my family eat our freakin’ burgers in peace.........
What they’re going to do? Frisk you?
Restaurants and companies that kowtow to activist groups lose my business. Whatever happened to businesses, restaurants and companies that served “everyone?”
JITB is getting hammered on their Facebook page also. https://www.facebook.com/jackinthebox
Well, now I *prefer* not to patronize Jack in the Box. Sword cuts both ways.
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.
Anyhoo - do these ‘moms’ understand that this was in Fort Worth? TEXAS? That is picking the wrong hill to die on. So to speak.
OK. time for an immediate nationwide boycott of jack-in-the-box by all gun owners then. Too easy.
If Jack in the Box refused to put up the no-gun sign, this is a victory for us.
For refusing to ban guns in their restaurants?
Not patronize JB, Why?
Did you know that Jack does not have a “Birth Certificate”
Why support Jack and Obama.
Well, at least Jack has a clowns head on his shoulders,
we have another clown in the White House!
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.

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.
these aren’t “moms”. come on.
this is an anti-gun, anti-constitution, anti-American group of lefty loons started and funded by that douchebag former mayor of new york bloomberg.
Isn’t this the company that regularly serves up E. coli and salmonella?
There is no need to carry in Jack in Box because the most dangerous thing in there is the food.
honrestly, I’m not sure who to be more annoyed at here-moms against the constitution, jack-in-the-box, or the yahoos that thoght it was reasonable to walk into a restaurant with assault rifles.
We were surprised by just how many JIBs there were in Vegas. Seemed like every couple of blocks. Their sirloin burgers are pretty good.
Burger King is still the best of the bunch.
WAT. Try Wendy's (has stepped up its game recently) or In-n-Out Burger. Carl's/Hardees also not bad.
What company is this?
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....
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.
Armed dirt bags welcome.
I would prefer you JITB just make may order.
And it better be right.
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.
Guess Jack in the Box is too busy taking orders from E. Coli.
have these mom’s put a sign up in front of their homes saying they are unarmed??
Then they can piss up a rope.
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.
Go to Chick fil A instead.
BK blows. In-N-Out, What-a-Burger, and Carl’s/Hardees all vastly superior.
And of course all criminals intent on robbery of such establishments will gladly comply. They always have...right? Sadly naive.
Has anyone tried shooting it?
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.
“Her reasoning was that an assailant would probably wrestle the gun from her and use it on her.”
That woman has watched too many Lifetime movies.
Did you read beyond that? Woman testified that she was later attacked and assailant took the single bullet before he got gun.
They went out of business here and aren’t missed.
I’ve had IN-n-Out and I know why it’s called that.
In through mouth and out like hot lead. :)
The Burger King in Canada does great burgers.
“In-n-Out Burger. Carl’s/Hardees”
I agree. Try eating a bite of the burger without a bun or condiments. You’ll really taste the difference.
I roll past that building on my way to Fry’s. Too bad for them. I carry when I’m home in Idaho. Jack’s was an option before this announcement. No big deal. They don’t want my business. We only have two in town. The new Carl’s Jr has better burgers anyway.
