Bloomberg owned and operated Mothers Demand Action for Gun Sense in America are trumpeting their latest victory. Or so they say. Whenever the hoplophobic harridans announce a “win” it’s best to take the news with a large grain of salt. Remember their Staples and Starbucks non-win wins? Neither retailer prohibits firearms in any of their stores in states where conceal carry is legal. And the announcement they’ve extracted from Jack in the Box is no different. Here’s the Moms’ email blast . . .
We did it again! Just 24 hours after we launched a petition asking Jack in the Box to enforce its policy prohibiting guns in its restaurants, the company issued this statement:
“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 of our guests, we would prefer that guests not bring their guns inside our restaurants.”
Jack in the Box also said it will have copies of this statement available at all of its restaurants so that its customers are crystal clear about the policy.
Please join me in thanking Jack in the Box for having gun sense by spreading the news of this victory on Facebook and on Twitter.
Did you catch the artfully applied weasel wording from JitB? “…we would prefer that guests not bring their guns inside our restaurants.” In other words, just like Starbucks, they issued a non-statement announcing the non-prohibition of firearms in their stores to get Shannon and her two dozen or so moms off their backs, letting MDA announce another non-victory.
It’s another big juicy nothing-burger for Mayor Mike’s $50 million. Who’s up for a Jumbo Jack? With cheese!
