Few major cities have been more influenced by the left’s anti-gun crusade than Chicago. As a result, it is now among the most dangerous cities in the world as shooting incidents are at times an hourly occurrence in the Windy City.
Over the Easter weekend, for instance, at least nine people were killed in various shootings, while another 32 were hurt. Five of the injured – all children – were shot during a drive-by in the Park Manor district of the city, according to reports.
Of course, such an outcome is unfortunately par for the course when criminals are assured by strict gun laws that they will be the only armed individuals on the street.
That realization apparently hit the owners of a Subway restaurant on the corner of 116th Street and South Halstead recently. As a local CBS affiliate indicated, a reporter entered the location for lunch to find a startling renovation: the installation of bullet proof glass between the employee area and the dining room.

The restaurant, situated near two neighborhoods with a history of gang violence, not only requires customers to interact with staff through the impenetrable glass; they are also required to use the restroom elsewhere.
According to the report, public facilities have been closed at this location, leading to many customers requesting sanitary wipes since they cannot wash their hands before eating.
Bulletproof Subway restaurants are apparently not limited to the violent streets of Chicago. At least two other cities with a long history of both gun violence and leftist leadership, Detroit and Oakland, also boast franchises with the protective sandwich setups.
Certain professions require a willingness to put one’s life on the line during each shift. Any city in which “Sandwich Artist” includes such a description, however, is almost guaranteed to have some of the nation’s most draconian gun restriction laws – along with a Democrat mayor.
