The aggravated customer shockingly opened fire on employees – and the reason for the attack is completely disgraceful.
For decades now, the debate as to whether we should have the right to bear arms has raged on.
In 2019 alone, our country endured over 400 mass shootings, many of which happened within our schools.
And thousands of lives are lost every year as a result of our obsession with these precarious weapons.
Yet, still, our government won’t budge.
Evidently, our right to bear arms is more important than our right to live safely within our country.
Worryingly, more and more stories are emerging of people using guns for the most trivial of reasons.
Countless stories of people getting shot, and sometimes even killed, in heated arguments and conflicts emerge every month.
And it is not okay.
We shouldn’t be living in fear of a gun being drawn on us at any given moment.
Because it happened at a McDonald’s restaurant.
Welcome to America, everyone!
A customer, who has now been identified as thirty-two-year-old Gloria Woody, became aggravated when she was asked to leave the restaurant.
So, when Woody went to take a seat, staff members were obliged to tell her to leave.
But Woody really wanted to sit in the restaurant.
So she refused to leave, leaving employees with no choice but to force her out.
According to the Oklahoma City Police Department, this altercation left one of the employees with a head injury.
But quickly reentered, this time with a handgun.
And 3 additional employees were injured in the shooting, with one being as young as sixteen-years-old.
One staff member was shot in the arm, another was hit with shrapnel in the neck and shoulder, and a third was hit with shrapnel in the side.
Luckily none of their injuries have been deemed as life-threatening.
And they found Woody a couple of blocks away from the restaurant.
She was taken into custody.
“The safety and security of our employees and customers is our top priority,” the spokesperson said.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with all those involved and the good news is that we can report the employees who sustained injuries are expected to make a full recovery. This is a heinous crime on our restaurant employees who were trying to support public health efforts.”
And let’s hope that this will be a wakeup call regarding the danger of guns.
But, sadly, this isn’t the first time this has happened in a McDonald’s restaurant. Keep scrolling to read about the woman who shot a staff member because her fries were cold…
