[Video] NC BBQ Restaurant With Prominent “NO GUNS” Sign Robbed at Gunpoint
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.
As the NC Gun Blog points out,
[The sign is] not just some generic “No Guns” sign the owner, Greg Hatem picked up down at the local sign emporium. No, these are custom jobs. He went out of his way to make custom signs to make sure we gun owners felt unwelcome.
…let me describe it. The three pictograms are labeled “NC State Capitol,” “NC Legislative Building,” and “The Pit.” Above the pictograms it says, “No Weapons” and below, “No Concealed Firearms.”
It sounds like the signs worked perfectly. There were no law abiding gun owners in the restaurant at the time of the robbery that we know of.
