WND Thinks People Getting Robbed Is 'Delicious'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A May 21 WorldNetDaily article by Jay Baggett carries the headline "Delicious irony at 'no guns allowed' restaurants." What was that "delicious irony"? A robbery:

The armed robber who shot and robbed a 20-year-old man outside this Houston Jack in the Box Sunday probably didn’t know the fast-food chain had only nine days earlier banned guns at their restaurants.

Or maybe he didn’t care.

Or maybe he realized his chances of encountering meaningful resistance were slim.

The shooting came on the heels of the chain capitulating to demands by the anti-gun activist group Mothers Demand Action that law-abiding gunowners be banned from bringing their weapons into the restaurants.

“Creating a warm and inviting environment for all of our guests and employees is a top priority for Jack in the Box,” read the corporation’s news release. “The presence of guns inside a restaurant could create an uncomfortable situation for our guests and employees and lead to unintended consequences. While we respect the rights of all our guests, we would prefer that guests not bring their guns inside our restaurants.”

Unfortunately, defenseless customers create a “warm and inviting environment” for the wrong people.

How callous and amoral is WND that it finds schadenfreude in someone being the victim of a crime?
