Well that didn’t take long. We just reported that Jack in the Box is asking all gun owners to leave their guns at home. But it looks like at least one criminal did not get the message. But then again, crooks don’t even obey gun laws so why would we expect them to obey the request of a fast food CEO?
A gun would have come in handy for the victim of a shooting just outside a Jack in the Box on Monday night. In Nashville, Tennessee a man was approached in a Jack in the Box parking lot by a man who tried to sell him drugs, but when the man refused the suspect pulled out a gun and fired.
According to wkrn.com,
The 43-year-old victim told police he was walking across the parking lot when he was approached by a black male who offered to sell him drugs.
The victim said he refused and got into a verbal argument with the gunman, an arrest report states.
During the argument, the suspect pulled out a handgun and fired two shots.
The victim was grazed in his right shin and sustained non-critical injuries.
The suspect is described as a five foot, eight inch tall black male with a bald head, approximately 35 years old. He was wearing blue jeans and a blue hooded sweatshirt.
Don’t forget that this was the message sent out by Jack in the Box just after Moms Demand Action put pressure on the fast food chain to ban guns from their restaurants:
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.
– Jack in the Box VP of Corporate Communications Brian Luscomb
