Remember last year when a man walked into a Utah J.C. Penney store with an unloaded AR-15 and, well, nothing happened? There appears to be a similar story out of Texas last weekend, where members of Open Carry Texas visited a Jack in the Box restaurant with their rifles openly displayed. What happened immediately afterward, however, has been the subject of a dispute between Open Carry Texas and anti-gun group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense.

At issue is whether frightened employees hid in the freezer for fear of being robbed. An email from Sgt. Ray Bush of the Fort Worth Police Department said that employees “locked themselves inside a freezer for protection out of fear the rifle-carrying men would rob them.” That’s the story that made it into the New York Times (and has since been amended); however, a spokesperson for Jack in the Box confirmed that no one hid in the freezer.

Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, picked up the New York Times story.

Open Carry Texas has posted what it says is the only 911 call made in connection with the incident. In other words, no one from Jack in the Box called the police, let alone hid in the freezer.

The Moms Demand Action website still includes the claim that the rifles “terrified employees so much that they locked themselves in the freezer.”

Editor’s note: The final sentence of this post initially referred to Moms Demand Action as “Mothers Demand Action.” The error has been corrected.

    hahahahahaha!!! Imagine the slanderous embarrassment of the JiTB employees? “Scary guns forced us to lock ourselves in our freezer!” I’d sue the “Mom” group out of sheer principle.

    • Republicanvet

      Those harping broads would just pass the blame onto the FWPD.

      Interesting that the PD would put out such a false statement.

      Interesting that the Demanding Harpies would stand by it after being proven false.

        Not so surprising, I have known cops my whole life… having one loud mouth know nothing spout off nonsense to pad a story, when he probably wasn’t even on scene, either to push his politics, or to make himself look badass to the media isn’t sadly, unheard of… there are way too many Barney Fife’s..

        met a couple, damned worthless…. but they can eat BIG doughnuts and strut before the cameras real good…. chase a suspect on foot…. not so much…

        I was an SP,.. I can make doughnut jokes..

        my God, I learned to hate those… especially the creme filled long johns,…. ick…. growing up a cop’s kid, across the street a doughnut shop owner would hand out boxes of dozens of left over morning doughnuts when he got off at 4….. we had a stack of boxes on the kitchen table all summer for years…. I had doughnut aversion therapy those years… the only ones that don’t make me feel ill, are the plain noniced cake doughnuts, he never gave those out.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      I remember being in Cheyenne in the early 80’s, and seeing the open carry laws there, saw some field hands from a local cattle ranch come in to town, a couple werem wearing hand guns in hip holsters.. they had to deal with coyotes, the occasional bear,.. poachers,.. but as long as it was in plain sight, packing there was perfectly legal… imagine that…

      and my only thought was not, not , “oh my God oh my God, we’re all gonna die”…. it was… “cool”….. of course I was Air Force enlisted, a ground combat specialist SP.. and I packed much worse when on duty.. though, sigh,…. they were far stricter on personal gun ownership on base, than the state of Wyoming was off base.. I owned a 45cal. Government model, but had to keep it in the locked down armory, or off base with a friend…

      But people there saw carrying by law abiding people as normal, as normal as a gun rack in your pickup in dear season here in Ohio…. or anytime in Texas…. God I love Texas…. no state personal income taxes,…. a lot of guys changed residence when they learned that one…

      Freedom attracts people….. especially folks not skitterish around a damned tool, and that is all a gun is, a tool.. dad was a cop,.. and I learned to shoot at ten.. people don’t react in hysteria to gums like that crazy moms group suggests.. they just don’t… and what walk in freezer has a lock on the inside?……. seriously, they are designed so you can’t lock the door, a safety issue so nobody accidently locks themselves in… duh….

      • Ogrrre

        When my father was kid, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, he could take his .22 rifle, get on the city bus, ride downtown to the YMCA, do his target practice, get back on the bus with his rifle, and ride home, with no one saying, or thinking, anything about it. If a kid tried that now … whooeee!

    http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2014/05/06/tarrant-county-gun-group-disowned-by-organization-for-going-too-far/

    FORT WORTH (KRLD) – After staging a controversial protest at a Jack in the Box in Fort Worth, a North Texas gun rights group has been kicked out of the state wide organization it belongs to.

    Members with Open Carry Tarrant County didn’t notify police before they showed up at the fast-food restaurant last week with rifles in full sight and no signs indicating what they were doing.

    “Officers spoke with Jack-in-the-Box employees who reported that they feared for their lives and believed they were being robbed. They locked themselves inside a freezer for protection out of fear the rifle-carrying men would rob them,” reads a statement from the Fort Worth Police Department. “The demonstration had no signage that would have alerted anyone to their real purpose, and to our knowledge they did not attempt to contact anyone in the Fort Worth Police Department to advise us prior to the demonstration.”

    C-J. Grisham, the president of Open Carry Texas, says what the group did was in clear violation of their bylaws (one of which is to contact police before a protest), so they’ve cut off all ties with the Tarrant County chapter.

    • Jimbo

      So you are trying to tell us that a group of citizens, exercising their rights, was kicked out of a citizens rights group for not asking permission to exercise those rights? I hope you bought a round-trip ticket so you can return immediately to planet Stupid.

      “Members with Open Carry Tarrant County didn’t notify police before they
      showed up at the fast-food restaurant last week with rifles in full
      sight and no signs indicating what they were doing.”

      So exercising legal open carry in TX requires carrying a sign? Are there official specifications like there is for TX 30.06 No Guns Allowed signage?

  • TomJB

    I have worked at a Pizza Hut, a Friendly’s and a private restaurant. None of them had a freezer or walk in refrigerator that could be locked from the inside

    • WhoDat

      But they could jam up and not want to reopen.

      Happened at least once to me.

      • heyheythere

        I think when you’re relying on whether the freezer “wants” to open or not, it’s a pretty poor defensive strategy.

        • WhoDat

          What was I attempting to defend? I’m just saying.

          • heyheythere

            the workers….defending themselves against the supposed gunmen…

      • Mead

        And guns make walk-in doors jam?

      • TomJB

        The doors all swing outward

        • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

          And have quick release push jambs on the inside, so you couldn’t get stuck inside if the latch froze…

          I have never in 31 years grocety retail seen a walkin freezer you could bar the door on… OSHA would have gone nuts about it, people can die in those, that’s why they are virtually impossible to lock from the inside.

      • rogleecam

        DON’T LIE! “At least once”; two or three is hard number to remember huh?

      • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

        31 years, supermarkets… not one could be locked from the inside, all had emergency quick latch release push bars so if the door stuck, you could force it open.

        and the walls were insulated, not armored,.. hiding there would be as pointless as hiding in a closet.

    • Blake Waymire

      The store I work at has specific measure to make sure that our walk-ins *can’t* actually be locked. From either side.

      *edited to make the point I was trying to in the first place

      • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

        I was about to ask, why WOULD you make a freezer lockable from the inside?

          Answer as you saw and just noted…. they don’t…

        • JeffyTheQuick

          So the food can protect itself from hungry customers.

    • AT

      In my earlier days, I managed quick-serve, family dining, and sports bars. The rule is always: “Don’t run. Don’t fight. Stay quiet. Just give them what they want so they leave. Whatever’s in the register or your tip jar isn’t worth your life.”

      A guy who knocks over a fast food joint or a local bar/restaurant isn’t there to light up everyone in the room, and he’s certainly not there to land a big score. They’re scared and panicky and usually don’t know what they’re doing. If they’re armed and you’re not, you just open the register and let them go. Running/hiding only makes them chase/find you – and then hurt you.

      I can’t imagine a quick-serve employee running to a freezer. THAT’S a good way to get killed.

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        Thee have been a few cases where the employees were herded into the freezer and executed.

        • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

          That, haunted me, reading about those, so I always kept a weapon on me, usually a buck knife.. and I would use it, if it appearred to be necessary. Not my first choice of weapons, but you don’t always have the luxury of time and weapon choices.. but if you see they intend to execute everyone, I would try really hard by whatever means to get close, faux begging, crying anything to get that one second where he might hesitate, because I would not.

          Might fail… but you have to try..

      • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

        Pretty much the same rules in retail grocery, robberies were rare, nbut not unknown… shoplifters we chased, ran down and held for the PD… that’s how I broke my back in two places, chasing a shoplifter. It was raining, wet, I was wearing leather soled shoes, and when the first few people slipped and went down in a pile, already sprinting full tilt, I tried to avoid the pile up, skidded to the side and collided with an SUV.. 7 crushed vertebrae, 5 discs from that, I already had ruptured 3 before that in a different accident,.. ended my career in retail grocery. I was alreaxy on light duty, full of pain meds,.. shouldn’t have.. but the security gal was a friend, and small, the guy she chased out the door was 6’6″ or so, and…… I was afraid for her, afraid he would hurt her to get away…

        She was. In the pile up….. PD caught him later, a $20 heist went from shoplifting to felony robbery, because somebody, me, was injured badly in the commission of the theft. Being former military, I was always envolved when bad people acted stupid… breaking up fights, shoplifters,… even emergency medical when somebody would need help, I had training the rest didn’t… like how to control bleeding, or how to restrain, put down and headlock a drug addled teen before he hurt someone, it was never asked for, just expected…

        I don’t regret anything, if 5 of us hadn’t run after him when she chased him out the door, he might have turned on her, to get away.. if he had beaten her…. no, no regrets about that, she was a friend…

        I would expect any man to do the same, if I had a loved one who needed somebody to step up.. even if it means getting hurt doing it.. not my first rodeo.. but it was my last… no more after that one.

      • Ogrrre

        That don’t run/don’t fight/cooperate strategy worked so well at the Sirloin Stockade in Oklahoma City about 30 years ago.

  • Stupid Republic

    So the Moms got popped lying and are going to have to retract, but the crux of the issue is that these ex-Open Carry clowns let the Moms control the issue from the get-go. They get the message out first — right, wrong or indifferent — and that’s what’s going to stick in the minds of 90% of the American public.

    There’s a better way out there to push for open carry than treating the local Jack in the Box as Utah Beach. There’s rights to carry, but there’s also responsibilities with those rights.

    (I’m also of the school of thought that open carry makes you a more inviting target when a nut job decides to strike, but that’s another conversation.)

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      It doesn’t sound like they stormed the place with guns blazing, but notifying the local PD would have been apropos.

      • Stupid Republic

        OK, a bit of hyperbole, but if I were sitting in a restaurant when these clowns came in with rifles, I would have drawn.

        • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

          I like to think I would have paid attention to whether they were acting in a threatening manner. Panic makes for bad decisions.

        • Corey Dennison

          I would have drawn.

          Why? Why on earth would you draw when someone has a weapon that is slung over their shoulder?

          You realize in many states, you would’ve just committed a felony for “Brandishing?”

          • Stupid Republic

            Poor word choice. Unstrapped the holster and hand on the weapon.

          • Corey Dennison

        • Brown

          The vast majority of people robbing restaurants are doing so with a handgun, not wearing hat/mask to hide their face, and usually aren’t running in groups of more than 3.

          I would be more freaked out if some guy came in wearing a hoodie, glasses, and hat with his hand by his waist ready to pull his handgun.

        • Mead

          Turn in your concealed carry permit, you are a danger to yourself and everyone else. You have no idea what you’re doing with a firearm or when an appropriate time to use it might be.

          And don’t bother saying you corrected yourself below. That was your initial reaction, and it is WRONG WRONG WRONG.

          • Stupid Republic

            Thanks for the advice. I’ll let the state and a qualified CWP instructor determine that, and not some anonymous poster.

          • Mead

            Show your instructor that post and see what he or she says.

            You are not educated enough or stable enough to carry concealed, plain and simple. And with that kind of reaction you’re going to end up murdering someone or getting killed in your intended victim’s self-defense because you had no clue as to the law or the responsibilities of carrying. Good luck, I hope you don’t end up being a murderer.

        • Worship Dancer

          you are an idiot. Texas is an open carry state, might want to NOT go to Texas. besides YOU would be arrested for brandishing YOUR weapon in a threatening manner.

          • Stupid Republic

            Thank you for your civil response. Open carry of a handgun is not permitted in Texas.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Open carry of a handgun is not permitted in Texas.

            Neither is brandishing, which you would be doing if you ‘unsnapped the holster and hand on the weapon’.

            Texas Penal Code, Title 9, Chapter 42, section 42.01a(8)

            Disorderly Conduct: (a) A person commits an offense if he intentionally or knowingly:

            (8) displays a firearm or other deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm;

            A slung, unloaded weapon isn’t being ‘displayed in a manner calculated to alarm’ – the same can’t be said for your instance.

          • Ken Alan Draper

            actually open carry is not currently legal in texas, it is however perfectly legal in Indiana & there hasn’t been many problems.

    • Al’s Annoyed Grandpa

      Yep. The guy here in Utah did it right. He talked to the store manager on the phone and informed him what he wanted to do and let the manager know that the rifle would be unloaded and slung over his shoulder. He also told the manager that if the manager would prefer the guy not bring his weapon, he would respect the manager’s request.

  • freeinaz

    Another “Gun Free Zone” for people to be targeted. No more Jack in the Box for me, I’d rather go to someplace which is safe from illegal gun carrying fools.

They already have a lot of blood on their hands already, guess more doesn’t matter to them.

    Fair’s fair. Many people, seeing four men with weapons, even not at the ready, will want to haul ass, in an abundance of caution. Myself included, if I can, if I have no impression that they are completely harmless. (Of course, I’ll try not to startle them.) Situational awareness, folks– did these fellows in any way LOOK like they were posing a threat? Or have we been SO conditioned to believe “Guns = Trouble!” that we immediately jump to conclusions?

    Remember, these are the same sorts of Progressive types that tell us that we are absolutely evil for seeing a group of black youths congregated somewhere, and letting the thought cross our mind for a fleeting second that they may not be there for some perfectly innocent reason (this, based on reports of flash mobs looting in malls, and the like). Yet, they are willing to assume that it is only good sense and good judgment that one react in a “lock yourself in the freezer” way when seeing four men with exposed guns not pointed at anyone, acting perfectly calmly and rationally, who apparently are simply ordering food at a take-out joint.

    Or is this all a “You fear who YOU want, and I’ll fear who I want!” sorta deal we got going on in this country, based on political beliefs?

    Why would anyone hide in a freezer that can be opened or locked from the OUTSIDE?

    Safety regulations demand that walk in freezers can NOT be locked from the inside. There is a plunger inside to offset the door’s internal lock as the door is pushed open from the inside.

    Kind of defeats the entire purpose of running away and trying to hide.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      Correct… the story never made any sense.. anyone who has ever worked around a walk in freezer could tell you this…

      I did however know a couple of small town cops who would speak absolute BS to reporters, so a lousy cop talking nonsense to give the media what it was begging for, no surprise there… there is always a guy on the fringe looking to make himself look badass to a reporter, even if they just make it up… cops have a hard, lousy job, but they are human, and a few bad apples……. there are always a few.

    So Valerie Roberts continues to push the lie — that people “locked themselves inside” an unlockable freezer, and that the JitB people didn’t categorically deny that statement.

      Makes sense.. people will bring in stereos… same reason.

      these folks are the same ones who recoil in terror when a cop has a gun,….. they can… gasp…. see it….. sniffle…

        It helped that I grew up with guns and didn’t see them as scary. In fact seeing it made me feel a little safer in that crappy neighborhood.

        I see Jack in the Box caved to the moron Moms Demand Action lying campaign and won’t allow guns in their locations any more. Of course the people who will shoot them and rob them won’t give a flying fig about their “rule.” Idiots.

    Does this strike anyone else that the very people promoting and endorsing the same type of irrational fear these same people who were calling people irrational and racist because they had an inordinate fear of young black men instead of men with guns?

    Bottom line is that the only way the left/dems/progs/libs can push an agenda is through lies and deception..If they were to reveal their true intentions from the start, they wouldn’t get very far…

    A gun is a tool – as are those harping mums

    Those Jack in the Box employees have never been more safe. Gun control is the modern day equivalent of the Salem Witch Hunt. I wonder how well these fearful women understand the issue. For instance, do they know that half (49.7%) of the murders in the United States are committed by black men between the ages of 15 and 34, who collectively account for only 3 percent of the population? (FBI crime statistics, 2011). This is not a gun control problem, it is a cultural issue.

    Maybe next time they’ll get the facts before jumping to confusions, but I doubt it.

    There is no way these employees ran and locked themselves in a freezer because they saw a few guns at the Jack in the Box. If you have lived here (in Texas) long enough, it is not shocking to see people with firearms. Not really a big deal. My neighbor has a gun on him at all times. The people with open carry licenses are not who you should be worried about anyway.

    so, some MOMs operative makes a false 911 call trying to get pro second amendment activists arrested & why hasn’t the person who misused 911 been arrested?

    • Hank_Scorpio

      That’s a valid question.

    Not on twitter but I’d love to post a picture of my 9 year-old daughter with her new Cricket .22 in pink camo for Shannon Watts. She can’t wait to eliminate some groundhogs.

    Open Carry TX needs to file a slander lawsuit against FWPD.

    Sgt Bush needs to explain his statement. He obviously lied in his statement and that makes me wonder if he also lies in his official reports.

  • rwendling70

    Since early 20th century is has been impossible “to lock yourself in the freezer.” The crooks COULD lock you in the freezer if there is a hasp on the door edge outside! If on the other hand YOU were armed, the perps would be dead at the front door. Just sayin’.

    Ok, so I see the point of Open Carry Texas’s demonstration, and I agree with and stand behind the 1st & 2nd & all the amendmends, hell, I even have a concealed carry license for ILLINOIS, but why does everybody have to poke the sleeping dog?

    Ya just give the liberal socialist’s another soapbox that they can jump up on, again, and pound their drivel into the head’s of susceptible weak-minded Americans. Save it for the IMPORTANT battles…

    Besides, concealed carry is waaaaaaay better than open carry.

    • Wonder Pony

      I’m not going to hide my rights as if I’m ashamed of them. And F*&K the socialists. On your second point it’s a bit difficult to conceal my shotgun.
