It’s not a joke. A “gun free” BBQ joint in Durham, N.C. really was robbed at gun point.

“We’re offering $2,000 for the arrest and conviction of these guys,” Hatem said. “We take this very seriously. We want to make sure our guests and our staff are taken care of.”

I kept thinking this HAD to be a joke.  But, it seems a Durham, North Carolina barbeque restaurant was indeed robbed in spite of a sign on their front door stating no weapons were allowed. More specifically, “no concealed fireams” are allowed. You can see the full story here…

It seems the suspects decided to enter through the back door and never saw that sign. No one was seriously injured but, at least one employee did go to the hospital and has since been released.  The irony of the fact his gun free zone did nothing to protect and may even have led to him being targeted his patrons or employee’s seems to be completely lost on the owner.
