    Crazy lady asks to see a gun at the gun counter and turns it on the clerk.
    I have never been in a WM that didn't have the action padlocked open on every gun in the display case.

    You go on ahead and play batman if you want let us know how that works out for you

    WM incident

    One cannot assume that the gun is unloaded just because they lock up the ammo (that is, when they have it). Without previous knowledge, you just came around the corner and saw a woman holding a gun on a clerk, what would you think? I would make tracks in the opposite direction and call the LEOs. Then observe at a safe distance.

    A few years ago, a man walked into a Sports Authority style store in the lower level of the mall. He went to the gun counter and asked to see a .357. So, the clerk hands him a Colt Python Hunter. The man reaches into his pocket, has ammo, and loads the gun. He pointed at the clerk and said he'll take it. The clerk of course, called 911. He walked out and was nearly a quarter mile away when the local cops found him. Then He pointed it at 2 cops who shot him 9 times.
    The dude wanted to commit suicide by cops

    BTW, that store stopped selling firearms at that location the next week.

    First off witch wally was it in maine? our local wally here in Palmyra has ammo on the shelve I think it may be just shotgun rounds but I thought it may be rifle as well? But in any event the lady could have brought a pocket full of ammo for all we know. Hard call it would be one of those that I would have to be there

I have run through it a few times and it could have been a very bad outcome for the woman. What do you think would happen to a person who drew down and shot the lady. Some on here indicate that they would not ask questions before shooting.I am sure the action of the clerk would have supplied enough info to give a person with a CCW some indication of whether he was indeed in danger. But what are the chances the lady got some ammo off the shelf and loaded the gun. Interesting real life scenario, have at it folks.
    Outcome was security and the local PD managed to subdue her and she was carted off to the loony farm. This occurred on the same day a granny was caught with a gun at the Federal Building. She was looking for the post office and had forgotten to take her gun off when she left home.
    Wow where did this take place? I live in Maine myself I'm quite curious as to where this took place. Now with the scenario if I could I would try to subdue the person with means other than lethal force as much as possible. Probably try to take the gun away and if I had to some strikes to the hands and arms with my carry light should do the trick real fast. Shooting is a absolute last resort for me. I don't really want to take a human life. Glad it turned out ok though.

    I'd have taken myself and my family, turned around, and walked away. Called 911 after I reached a safe spot.

    Mind your own business...

    My CHL did not come with a SASH or a CAPE.

    If there is any question about the situation you don't have the reqiurered info to solve it.

    Let me clarify the lady was using the gun as a weapon on the clerk, it was not an incidental pointing, and she is actually crazy. I would imagine the clerk would have immediately told you the gun was empty and he/she was probably not acting very scared. Obviously if you saw the whole thing go down you would know what was up. I agree that it is imperative that an assessment of the situation be made before anyone gets shot.
    Proofread before you post!!! A reminder to me.

    [QUOTE=Thegear234;1466126]Wow where did this take place? I live in Maine myself I'm quite curious as to where this took place.

    Well it was either Augusta or Waterville, I know the old lady with the gun was in Augusta but I can't remember if the other was also in Augusta, I am leaning towards Waterville.

If I saw her ask for the gun then point it at the sales clerk then I know its not loaded, I would call the police immediately while keeping a very close eye on her and a hand on my gun, if any ammo shows up she's going down.

    I'm gonna think some moron has no firearms safety training,and watch to see whats happening,If Lady is yelling robbery commands etc then I may intervene,might be a really good idea to call the po po and be a good witness

    Just wondering about the logic and justifiability, here.
    I agree, and I think LE would agree as well. We are not the Police. Unless there is a credible imminent threat to human life, better not be shooting anyone or a heap of law trouble is coming.
