Remember last year when a man walked into a Utah J.C. Penney store with an unloaded AR-15 and, well, nothing happened? There appears to be a similar story out of Texas last weekend, where members of Open Carry Texas visited a Jack in the Box restaurant with their rifles openly displayed. What happened immediately afterward, however, has been the subject of a dispute between Open Carry Texas and anti-gun group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense.

At issue is whether frightened employees hid in the freezer for fear of being robbed. An email from Sgt. Ray Bush of the Fort Worth Police Department said that employees “locked themselves inside a freezer for protection out of fear the rifle-carrying men would rob them.” That’s the story that made it into the New York Times (and has since been amended); however, a spokesperson for Jack in the Box confirmed that no one hid in the freezer.

Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, picked up the New York Times story.

Open Carry Texas has posted what it says is the only 911 call made in connection with the incident. In other words, no one from Jack in the Box called the police, let alone hid in the freezer.

The Moms Demand Action website still includes the claim that the rifles “terrified employees so much that they locked themselves in the freezer.”

Editor’s note: The final sentence of this post initially referred to Moms Demand Action as “Mothers Demand Action.” The error has been corrected.
