A Cheesecake Factory in Washington asked a corrections officer and her party to leave after seeing that she carried a firearm. The Corrections Officer, Miriam Nichols, posted a message to The Cheesecake Factory Facebook page explaining the situation.
In the United States, we have this silly little thing called the Second Amendment. Regardless of the individual rights of the business, and their misunderstanding of those rights – and even their own policies – the Second Amendment is more important than the power trip these employees went on.
Let’s look at the reason for the Second Amendment and why it exists in the first place. Don’t worry, I won’t get all Libertarian on you. It states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” So, why does it say this? It certainly doesn’t say this because the Founding Fathers primarily thought you should be able to hunt. It also doesn’t say this because they wanted to mess with Cheesecake Factory employees. It says this because if a government were to turn on its people, those people need to be armed. If they weren’t, they wouldn’t be able to defend themselves from the government boot knocking in the door.
Let’s pretend, just for a moment, that boot kicked down the door of – oh, I don’t know – a Cheesecake Factory in Wisconsin. What would happen? In this absurd Leftist hell-hole lacking freedom, that Cheesecake Factory would be known as “братская Чизкейк завод” (Brotherly Cheesecake Factory), and all the employees would work under threat of death.
The Second Amendment is not subject to any sort of “gun free zone” nonsense. In fact, most if not all of the mass shootings in the past ten years were inside of these gun free zones. I don’t think the Cheesecake Factory wants to become another mass shooting location statistic, do they? Who knows!
The company also replied to Nichols’ Facebook post, writing, “Miriam, our policy is to allow uniformed and identified law enforcement officials to possess their service weapons on our premises. To the extent that there was a miscommunication of our policy, we sincerely apologize.”
What do you think about Brotherly Cheesecake Factory?
