According to an article from Breitbart, armed men allegedly herded customers into a back room and robbed the safe of a Jack in the Box last Saturday in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
In May of 2014, Jack in the Box asked law-abiding citizens not to carry guns into their stores. Less than two weeks after making that request, two Jack in the Box restaurants were robbed-both in Houston and a shooting in Nashville.
Jack in the Box is one of the many corporations that have caved to pressure from the anti-gun group Moms Demand Action. A statement from Jack in the Box’s Vice President of Corporate Communications Brian Luscomb makes clear that the company is responding to pressure and acting on behalf of its corporate and franchise stores:
“The presence of guns inside a restaurant could create an uncomfortable situation for our guests and employees and lead to unintended consequences.”
It appears that the “unintended consequences” of Jack in the Box’s decision to cave to the Moms Demand organization has resulted in a less safe environment for their stores.
