Renee Nal: More Jack in the Box Information

Sergeant Raymond Bush of the Fort Worth Police Department in Texas told the Examiner Monday that statements regarding employees locking themselves in a freezer at a Jack in the Box establishment in Texas were "taken out of context."

The story, first reported at a local NBC affiliate, written by Ken Kalthoff, created a media firestorm and was used by Bloomberg's "Moms Demand Action" gun control group to pressure Jack in the Box and Home Depot (where members of Open Carry Texas were demonstrating) to disallow open carry demonstrations on their premises.

The original news story reported that employees "were scared about the armed men protesting outside of the restaurant." Kalthoff cited an email from Sgt. Bush that quotes him as saying, “They locked themselves inside a freezer for protection out of fear the rifle-carrying men would rob them...” Moms Demand Action started an aggressive social media campaign, releasing a statement that said in part that the companies are subjecting customers “in search of building parts or burgers, to the potential for bullets.”
