I know most criminals aren't the sharpest tools in the shed, but I knew they would figure it out eventually :(


NC Restaurant With "No Weapons" Sign Robbed at Gunpoint



Source: NC Restaurant Posts ?No Guns? Sign and Then Gets Robbed at Gunpoint


North Carolina restaurant The Pit was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday. Normally, local crime stories like this wouldn't merit a Townhall post, but this one is different: The Pit has a "no weapons" sign displayed prominently on its door declaring the restaurant a gun-free zone, and bans patrons from carrying concealed weapons.
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.


What groups like Everytown for Gun Safety or Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America seem to have an issue grasping is that criminals have no respect for the law by nature of being criminals. Criminals aren't going to be stopped by a "no guns allowed" sign. If somebody is going to rob or shoot up a Chipotle, for instance, they're not going to care that they cannot (or have been politely asked not to) bring a gun onto the premises. Criminals are not going to submit to background checks. They'll use straw purchases or just buy a gun from an illegal source. All these policies and laws do is make it harder for legal gun owners to protect themselves.
While I am thankful nobody was hurt, this certainly harms the narrative that "gun free" places are safe places.

I guess we need to establish a literacy program for felons, if they just could read that sign they would never have robbed this place.
