“Panera Warmth.” That is slogan of Panera Bread. What is their definition of warmth? Would it be the 98.6° stream of blood running down the face of the police officer called to defuse a violent situation? Or the likened temperature of the blood pooling, as it drained life from the second officer shot in pursuit of the madman?

Senior Deputy Pat Dailey took the shot to the face in response to his question to unhinged 68-year old David Evans. “How was your day?” was Dailey’s question. Evans killed him.  Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon was killed while in pursuit of Evans.

Panera is a mandatory gun-free zone. If you want to eat there, and you are permitted to carry, either open or concealed, you must leave your firearm outside.  Their 2014 included some of the following statements;

“…we are building communities in our cafes and are where people come to catch a breath.”

Their last breath?

“We’re certainly not going to put our associates in the position confronting someone carrying a gun.”


“We won’t put our café management in the position of being law enforcement.”

Just in the position of being a victim…blood running Panera Warmth all around.

That philosophy served their establishment and their patrons well that day, wouldn’t you agree? Do you think they re-thought their policy regarding guns in their establishment? Sure they did!  Instead or waking up and smelling the coppery scent of blood, CEO Ron Shaich stands firm, and this cop-killing patron threatening meal just reinforces their position;

“Within in our company, we strive to create Panera Warmth.”

As a reminder, that would be 98.6°.

“This warmth means bakery-cafes where customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome.”

Everybody! Let’s go grab a “warm” bowl of soup and enjoy getting lit-up at the local Panera, shall we?

“To this end, we ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by and authorized law enforcement officer.”

Because, we would rather they get capped in the face. After all, we have the right to tell our patrons when and where they can defend themselves and it isn’t in our café.
