Will the BG's be charged with kidnapping? This has to be more serious than simple robbery.
I was car-jacked/kidnapped in Pittsburgh during a robbery at 19. Thrown in the trunk while they went to ATM machines all over town. The DA said he would charge them with kidnapping..... had they ever caught them. And....they had fingerprints, photos from three different ATM's and the drivers blood and two teeth in the front of the car when they found it that night... still nothing. They never found them even though it was all over the news and a couple detectives recognized them from a local housing project.
Having two armed people car-jack you when you don't have any idea what situational awareness is or train to be able to handle it can be VERY overwhelming. I've shot a lot since I was 12 years old. But, I never took self defense THAT seriously until that happened. I couldn't believe it was happening. So, I understand how this played out, but know if they had training or carried, it MAY have worked out better. Not many know what they would have done in the same situation.
So, if you don't know, you don't know. You think it will just stop on it's own. That's why the last 11 years has been spent taking every class I can and and carrying the largest caliber that I shoot fast and accurate. For me it's a 1911 in 45. I hope this opens their eyes and I'm glad it didn't end in the death of four students.
I was ALMOST robbed while on a photo shoot last year. I have about $15,000 to $20,000 worth of equipment on me during a shoot. It ended very differently. Training is a must. If you don't have it, you have little chance of knowing what to do.

Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe
Call 911 in some other city and hang up 4 times. I bet they'll find you.
One of the most dangerous political philosophies afflicting America today is the belief that we can’t allow anyone to suffer the natural consequences of their own stupidity.
"He emptied the bullets to the gun, and was immediately shot 4 times in the chest by the victim, the other mugger ran away. Police are analyzing urine found at the scene for DNA."
Healthy children will not fear life, if their parents have integrity enough not to fear death.
