National Guardsman shoots multiple attackers at Sonic – but wait, there’s more.

A man defended himself at the drive through of his local Sonic:

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — Police say a man shot at a group of armed men who allegedly tried to rob him while he was waiting in the drive-thru line at a fast food restaurant Sunday night.
DeKalb County police said the victim was placing his order in the drive-thru lane at the Sonic on Flat Shoals when a group of men approached his car with guns and demanded money.

That’s when the man fought back.

“The victim had his own handgun was able to shoot the suspect, who fell to the ground. The other two or three suspects fled from the scene,” said DeKalb police Lt. Mark Lavigne.

Police said they captured two suspects.

Another suspect, who was shot, was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Officers are still searching for a fourth person accused in the shooting.

Why is this significant?

Well, Sonic decided to go gun-free in 2014:

Sonic-Drive-In and Chili’s Bar & Grill both issued statements asking diners to refrain from bringing concealed weapons into their restaurants, even if they have a permit, NBC News reported Friday.

Sonic Vice President of Public Relations Patrick Lenow told the news agency in an email that while the drive-in chain respected current gun laws, certain actions led to new consideration for their restaurants’ policies.

“While we historically have relied upon local laws to guide how we address the display of guns at drive-ins, recent actions required we carefully reconsider this approach. We’ve considered the views and desires of our customers and employees that staff the drive-ins across the country. Accordingly, we’re asking that customers refrain from bringing guns onto our patios or into our indoor dining areas. With respect to the storage of guns in vehicles, we ask that our customers continue to honor local laws,” he said.
