Not Unexpected: Restaurant With “No Concealed Weapons” Sign Robbed at Gunpoint

Posted by on May 22, 2014 at 7:34 am

Proving yet again even criminals are smarter than your average anti-gun nut.

Police in North Carolina are looking for robbers who ignored a “No Weapons” sign at an eatery and brought firearms to their crime.

Employees of The Pit in Durham were assaulted at gunpoint at the gun-free zone, a local ABC affiliate reported May 19.

“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 station reported.

Wearing hoodies? Did they look like Obama’s imaginary sons?

After the assault one of the employees was taken to the hospital, but was later released, owner Greg Hatem told the station.

Don’t expect this nugget to be reported anywhere in the militant ant-gun media:

Reader F Paul Valone wrote in the ABC News 11 comments section: “The Pit BBQ was robbed at gunpoint? Wait, that’s not possible; The Pitt posted signs prohibiting guns. We all know that armed criminals will avoid places that prohibit guns, right? Since most will miss the irony, the Pitt BBQ’s other location in Raleigh was where national gun control advocates Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly held their meeting to have a “dialogue with gun owners”… to which no gun owners were invited.”

Michael Bloomberg was unavailable for comment.

    If I was a robber, I’d really like to see those “Gun Free Zone” signs at the business I intended to rob. And, if I were a concealed carry guy and happened to be in such a business, I would only draw my pistol, if I was threatened personally. Gun Free Zone businesses are the next place waiting for a massacre of innocent “folks.”

    That’s really not fair to the stick up artists.

    They probably couldn’t read the sign…

    How could this happen? There was a no guns sign up. Criminals always follow rules and instructions. Maybe the sign needs to be in every language so vibrant diverse comrades can follow the rules. Taxpayers should pony up for the signs to be translated in the interest of fairness and equality for the good of the collective.
