    BG Orders All CCWs to Toss Their Weapons

    On your way home from work, you stop to run into the bank (or a store, or a restaurant, etc). You're finishing up your transaction when you hear a voice scream "Nobody move. Just keep cool and everyone gets out alive." You realize an young man with a Glock 19 is robbing the place. He gets everyone to one side of the building and says "Don't think about being a hero today. If you're carrying, raise your hand. One at a time, you're gonna slowly pull out your piece, put it on the floor and kick it over here. If I find anyone carrying a gun, you get to watch the person next to you die before it's your turn."

    You're carrying and you have no idea who else may be. You might be the only one or there might be many more. What do you do? What variable change the answer - If he has a shotgun instead of the pistol? If there are two robbers?

    I'm sorry, but he won't get a chance to finish his little speech. About halfway through the second sentence, I start putting holes in him. I'm kind of impulsive like that; and I don't like being told what to do.

    edit: haha, I like ret's answer, too!

    Way too few details for this comlex a situation.
    Positions of everybody when you hear the threat?
    How many people?
    Position and distance of perp?
    Position and distance of lobby courtesy stations of any?
    People grouped in a group or a line as they are relocating?
    Position and distance of perp?

    Yeah, he's pretty much getting blasted before he stops talking if he mentions anything about disarming ccw holders.

    If he doesn't mention disarming ccw holders then I continue to evaluate the situation as to whether I interfere with his actions or not.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I will NOT give up my weapon. The line has been drawn at his request for me to do so. Now it's just a matter of how this situation is playing out as to when I engage. Two robbers definitely add to the difficulty of solving your dilema, but does not change the fact that I will not give up my weapon. JMO
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I agree, hence the need for details.
    I prefer not to get myself or anybody else killed if I can avoid it.
    Lacking details its going to be a "play it by ear" situation.

    1. He has displayed a weapon and delivered a threat.
    2. If the guy next to me is carrying concealed and refuses to give up his weapon, then I may be the one who dies if I don't act immediately.
    3. There is no number 3 because I have already emptied my magazine into him and either he, me, or both of us are dead.

    Yes, it is possible that I may be killed with my own gun by a bad guy but he'll have to beat me to death with it because it will be out of bullets before he gets it.

    Totally in agreement with all of the above
    2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

    Yeah, he's already talking way too much. If he has time to be so talkative then he has time to get shot.

    too little information.
    And never give up your weapon.
