Skip to comments.Told to wear a mask at Kansas City area BBQ restaurant, man in MAGA hat flashes a gun

Arlo Kinsey was working behind the carryout counter at RJs Bob-Be-Que Shack in Mission last week when a middle-aged man dressed in a red Make America Great Again hat and no mask walked through the door.
I asked him if he could wear a mask, since its what Gov. Kelly told us to do, said Kinsey, 18, who was working shifts at the barbecue joint this summer before heading off to college. He had dealt with a handful of customers who refused to wear masks inside the restaurant despite the statewide mandate but none like this, he said.
The man said he had an exemption to the mask order: He then lifted up his shirt, revealing a gun in a holster on his hip.
It was definitely a threat, Kinsey said. I was looking at the gun thinking he was going to shoot me.
My first thought was, I work in customer service and this is really whats going to happen? All were asking is that you wear a mask for a couple of minutes. We could have taken your order outside if you didnt want to. But you go into an air conditioned area without a mask on, and if I tell you to wear one, youre going to shoot me? Wow. I make $8.50 an hour, plus tips for this?
Kinsey called for his boss, Bob Palmgren, owner of the 17-year-old restaurant in suburban Kansas City, off Lamar Avenue and Johnson Drive in Mission. Palmgren was in the back, working in the kitchen.

Democrats setting up their next story.
Was the man carrying a noose?
Yeah, because those MAGA hats are soo darn hard to get!
Its a false flag.
Any Antifa nut can wear a MAGA hat too.
IDIOT 18 year old: “since it’s what Gov.Kelly told us to do.”
This millenial fool does not deserve freedom !!
The business owner says customers must wear a mask and the employee does what he is supposed to do and ask customers to put it on.
...and some jerk flashes a gun and says, I don’t care that it is your business, you are not free to set the rules at your business. You don’t had the right to refuse service and to show you how much I disagree with you being able to set the rules at your establishment, I’m going to flash this gun in my belt and scare you into submission.
If you don’t want to wear a mask, don’t go inside. Or go start your own business where you can set whatever rules you want for your customers.
What a freaking jerk that guy is to flash a gun in that situation. Unbelievable.
Since this happened in my area, Id love to get the rest of this story but refuse to sign up for the KC Red Star to read it but unable to do so.
Will try to ck out other sources but the Star is like The NY Times around here, setting the news for the rest of the media!
This part of the story doesn't make sense. You NEVER banish a weapon in anyway unless you plan to kill that person.
This story is BS!!
Is the part not mentioned in the story that it was a BLM hat and the perp was black ?
I don't understand what you're saying here. Is it that the man might have been telling the 18 year old why he couldn't wear a mask... because he was carrying and he can't wear a mask while carrying?
>> because he was carrying and he can’t wear a mask while carrying?
Put a red hat on a lefty and everyone rants about another Trump supporter acting badly.
Bet the guy is a hardcore hater of Trump, doing what they dolie.
Like all those hate crimes they are frauds.
Post 51, please
Likely Post 51
IF true. Post 51
"...It was definitely a threat..."
Exactly- post 51 please
Yup.Im as pro gun as you can get, and carry, but dont do stupid shiite.
There is a much greater demand for this kind of story than the supply. The left, however, really did have a homicidal would be killer who shot at Congressmen.
Upon the second reading of the article, it does appear pretty convenient to mention the trump hat and that the owner stated he “likes Trump”. I just have a little healthy skepticism reading articles that have no evidence other than testimonies by the accusers. No police report? No video? The owner didn’t try to get the identity of the trump supporter? Older chef challenged the man with the gun, too?
Bet he was a liberal trolling.
