Armed Robbers Find A New Hangout In Jack In The Box

Third robbery in a month

What seems to be the new hangout spot for gun-toting villains, Jack in the Box, suffered their 3rd armed robbery in the few short weeks since they caved to Shannon Watts and her Everytown for Gun Safety campaign calling on the restaurant to restrict its gun-owning and law abiding patrons from carrying firearms into the establishment.

The latest robbery happened for a second time in Houston, where four armed men wearing masks robbed the store in broad daylight. 

According to click2houston.com, “the men rushed into the restaurant around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, at the height of the lunch rush, and demanded money from two customers and employees,” before rushing out and driving away in a black Toyota 4Runner. 

A patron who was there followed the men, eventually helping officers detain the driver.  The other three armed men are still at large. 

Brian Luscomb, the Jack in the Box Vice President of Corporate Communications, said after caving to the pressure of the anti-gun group, “Creating a warm and inviting environment for all of our guests and employees is a top priority for Jack in the Box. The presence of guns inside a restaurant could create an uncomfortable situation for our guests and employees and lead to unintended consequences. While we respect the rights of all our guests, we would prefer that guests not bring their guns inside our restaurants.”
