While the Aussies boast some of the most “interesting” gun laws in the world for lack of a better word, we will save the former penal colony down under from any further immediate scrutiny, as the Outback mentioned in the title refers to the US restaurant chain of self-proclaimed steakhouses.
While Mel Gibson is not cast to share his controversial thoughts on the historical world banking order in the latest version of the Mad Max series, which explores the enigma of gender identification and cultural nuances of the post-apocalyptic societal patchwork of Bartertown all glued together by a stirring solo by Tina Turner featuring plutonium earrings, he would surely bring desert wasteland justice against the parent corporation in contemporary times. Maybe, the distraction of Gibson pontificating before an ominous dust storm, can save the Outback from the latest burning of shame of unofficially becoming a reactionary gun- free zone. Well maybe.
Here’s the new punchline for the 6th tee- A uniformed police officer walks into a steakhouse with his wife in Tennessee… No offense to the state that claims Al Gore or to the spouse of the law enforcement official, this is all about the convolution and ambiguity of corporate policy that is indirectly compromising self-defense. WTSP-TV is sad to report that a police officer was asked by management to leave after he refused to comply with the ridiculous request to lock his firearm in his car. Apparently, Outback management is not trained to recognize that a gun is part of the law enforcement uniform. Leftists will probably blame global freezing, I mean global warming, oh sorry climate change, on the decision by the employee to remove the officer from the premises. And here is where social networking actually works past the level of testing one’s exotic pet IQ and the obligatory endorphin releasing image of a kitten litter. Officer Andrew Ward took to posting and sharing the ridiculous and reckless narrative with online friends and family, and allegedly the entire incident was spurred by a fellow patron, who was uncomfortable with the idea of a cop holstering a firearm, and the lack of vegetarian options or a suitable “unkilled” menu.
The good news is that Outback brass called Ward to apologize, while the bad news, at least for the corporation, is that responsible firearm owners now realize that by entering the haunted wonderland of the steakhouse, they have a chance of ending up as the happy hour special of dead meat- a fate that is far more disturbing than ending up as a filet, after losing a terrorizing battle against a mutant Kangaroo in the Thunderdome.
