Have you seen my post about what the "EXPERTS" advise you to do? You make it sound like the only dead innocent people in bank robberies are the "foolish" ones.... so how do you explain people being executed in jewelry stores and other places that have highly valuable things where they also have silent alarms and cameras? How is this any different from a bank really?

There is one video on liveleak that shows you several asian women, who ran a jewelry store, after full compliances with the 3 gunmen, were all executed before they left the store. In some situations, the clerks were shot BEFORE a demand was even made...
I hate to say it, but all I just read was pure speculation, as if you knew what was going to happen, like you "read" their game plan or something.... this is not scripted, this ain't a movie.

Trigger-happy CCers who just open fire at the first sight of a perp with a gun in a bank, will very likely find themselves being prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. As well as being sued by those injured in the incident, and the families of any innocents who may have been killed.
Carrying a concealed weapon is a tremendous responsibility. If you ever draw your gun and fire, you better be ready to prove in a court of law that you had full justification to do so. THINK before you shoot.
I couldn't have said it better.

NOT in the State of Georgia... you can even OPEN carry to a privately owned bank.

I guess that's the signal, when someone's brains are on the floor... you being half dead with a gun shot wound in the chest or some other 'sign' that serious harm/death was imminent.
I have read about people being prosecuted because "their gun was too big."

UPDATE: My bank was robbed...
Five weeks ago I posted a thread about my bank being robbed, and what to do if one was inside when a robbery occurred. http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...ouse-bank.html
The same bank was robbed yesterday, perhaps by the same individual. STLtoday - ST. PETERS: 'Boonie Hat Bandit' robs another bank
I was in the bank a few weeks after the first robbery, and they still had no security guard present. From my perspective, nothing had changed. I have been able to limit my visits inside banks, but I haven't eliminated going inside yet. I guess I just need to try harder.
If it is the same guy, he sure seems brazen. Perhaps he figured if he did it once, he could do it again. They got a description of his car this time, though. If he keeps it up, he'll get caught. So far, the authorities attribute 10 robberies to him.
I don't want to rehash the options of what to do in a bank robbery, but I just wanted to give an update, and also a reminder that something like this could happen anytime. This bank went years without being robbed, so the odds of it happening twice in a short span of time were extremely small. Yet it happened.
Maybe he's having to work extra to keep paying his gas bill.

Grady, my friend, PLEASE sign up for online banking so you won't have to go into the bank!

Yep... on line banking, and ATM card for cash. I never see my bank.
However, "if" I were there, I would likely not do anything but watch. Bank robbers know they may encounter several people and want it to be low key and discrete (reason for notes being passed). They know they couldn't shoot all of the witnesses. It is not the normal form of robbery.
However... it they got carried away with themselves and seemed a real threat to life.... it would be a whole new matter.

I hear of armed robbers sticking up the same places 2-3 times... one time here in Metro Atlanta one POS robbed a convenient store/ gas station with gardening tools... after the first attempt he was back again just after 2 days... with the same lame gardening stuff.

Statistically the majority of repeat bank robbers eventually do get caught.
The ones that get away with it completely are few and far between.

Find a bank with a drive up.

My opinion for what it's worth (what you paid for it), banks and armour cars are a very soft target. I really find it hard to believe that they aren't robbed more.
