This Guy Apparently Thinks Buffalo Wild Wings Needs Airport-level Security

I know it is all about the money, but shouldn't a law suit at least make sense? Man still carrying bullet in the groin wants restaurant to pay | Nashville City Paper: Nashville's Online Source for Daily News
“Guards allowed an armed gunman to enter the restaurant and fire at least five shots in the restaurant … at least two of the shots hit the plaintiff,” the suit said, and once bullets started flying security guards started ducking instead of securing the restaurant.
OK, is Buffalo Wild Wings supposed to install full-body scanners, only metal detectors, or should the guards just strip search everyone who comes through the door? So how exactly do you want to make it a "gun free zone?" (Hanging up the signs isn't getting it done.)

And as for "not securing the restaurant," when bullets start flying, even cops take cover to figure out what is going on before they take action. (Maybe he doesn't understand about UNARMED guards, and what they can reasonably do against an armed criminal.) So should the restaurant have a sniper on stand-by?

And as Uncle said, this can't happen because it is illegal to have guns in a Tennessee restaurant that serves alcohol. (You would think that little technicality would stop someone willing to commit assault with a deadly weapon - and maybe murder.)

Unarmed Security is an oxymoron

Yeah, but that's what most businesses have.

And would you really want some over-worked underpaid security guard to open fire in a crowded restaurant?

Oh, and this is another instance of doing x while doing y, but both x and y are 'breaking the law'

"Yo Dawg, I heard you like to break the law while breaking the law so we put a law in front of your law so you could break the law while breaking the law." Or something. Sup?
