Once in a while, something so ridiculous happens that you just can’t help but stop what you’re doing and try to figure out the logic behind it. Guess what: you won’t be able to figure this one out with logic.
It happened at Keith’s Superstore in Lumberton, MS. Back in March of this year, a customer with a concealed carry permit and carrying a concealed firearm was shopping in the store. He came upon the store manager being stabbed by 29 year-old Lamont Williams.
The customer drew his firearm and held the Williams at gunpoint until police arrived. He was able to stop the assault. The manager of the store was taken to the hospital in critical condition and has since made a full recovery.
Here comes the part that we don’t understand. According to buzzpo, the store posted “No Guns Allowed In Store” signs after the above scenario happened.
HUH? Yep, you read that correctly. That image at the beginning of this article is from the store.
Step 1: Good guy with gun stops bad guy with knife.
Step 2: Store bans guns.
Step 3: Anyone with half a brain wonders why.
The author of the article let’s us know that he reaches out to the business to try and find out the logic behind the signs:
I of course called Keith’s Superstore in Lumberton, MS to find out what their logic was. Long story short, they were quite rude, and refused to answer any questions pertaining to this incident.
Then, the author has a stroke of genius with the question that he should have asked:
Perhaps I should’ve asked why they didn’t post a “No Knives” sign!
Well played, Sir. Well played.
