Recently, there have been two shootings at Jack in the Box restaurant less than 10 days after they decided to ask law abiding gun owners to leave their guns at home. Now we have yet another “gun free” restaurant who has been the victim of criminals with… you guessed it, guns.

According to local media reports, The Pit in Durham, NC was robbed at gunpoint after just recently opening up the restaurant.

According to ABC11,

Authorities said just before 9 p.m. Sunday, three men wearing hoodies entered the restaurant through the back doors with pistols, and forced several staff members to lie on the floor.

The bandits assaulted two employees during the crime, but they were not seriously injured

Well, at least the restaurant had the right to kick them out for non-compliance with the policy.

See, it they used your sign (instead of the custom sign they did use), then the bad guys would have plainly seen that their weapons were unwelcome. Poor, poor criminals.

The posting of a “gun free zone” at a place of business creates civil liability. This owner created a dangerous environment which attracted robbers.

Sunday, three men wearing hoodies entered the restaurant through the back doors with pistols, and forced several staff members to lie on the floor...

I guess he should have posted a "No guns AND hoodies" sign?

I’ll bet that the business owner forgot to post a No Guns Allowed sign at the back door otherwise he wouldn’t have been robbed.

EXACTLY what I was thinking. Make sure the NO GUNS signs are big enough, not written in retartet cursive, and on both the front and the back doors. Heck, even put one on the employee uniforms. These hoodie wearing robbers simply didn’t know they weren’t suppose to bring guns in the store.

Aw, man - they should have put up a sign that said “No Robbery”. How were the crooks to know?

I take it that the restaurant manager did not grab the gunman and say “Hey, the sign says NO GUNS!”

Ahhh, the BACK door. I bet there were only "NO GUNS" signs at the FRONT door!

We're going to have to do something about the fact a lot of armed robbers in NC apparently can't read plain English State-approved signage in business establishments. This lack of education is a serious problem!

Can't we get a few billion from the feds to start a new reading program? Maybe we could name it something catchy like "Midnight Literacy Basket Ball and Rapper Program"?

Just think of the crime and social problems it would solve. We owe it to the children, at least!

Indeed. The “No Guns” signs are useless when the criminals can’t read.

Durham- the town that brought you Crystal Mangum, who accused the Duke Lacrosse team of raping her after her strip show— and the knee jerk lib professors all lined up with her and the DA too concealed evidence. The DA lost his job and his license to practice law.

Durham— oh so liberal that they now recognize matriculada cards shown by illegals, as being the same as a driver’s license, giving them the OK to drive. A form of ID also acceptable for.....voting. Town is a ghost of its former humming tobacco/cigarette manufacturing millions and the golden age of jobs. It is a font of EBT and people on all kinds of welfare, coupled with militant leftism.

My daughter’s school has a prominent “Gun Free Zone” sign on the front of the building.

The site of it makes me cringe.

May as well say “Unprotected Innocent Children Inside.”
