    Robbery w/ 6 Suspects

    In the era of liberals pushing Magazine Limits, it seems bad guys are perpetrating their crimes in ever increasing numbers. Not just 1, or even 2...but 6 people to rob a convenience store.

    6 suspects captured on video robbing Tampa 7-11

    Facing a hypothetical defensive situation with 6 people involved (assuming the details justified defensive action), could anyone reasonably argue that 7 rounds is "enough"? It certainly would give you cause for concern. Just an example in my area I thought I would share as we put things like mag limits in perspective.




    PS. I'm not really speaking to the specific details of this particular case. My point is an increasing trend of criminals committing crimes with increasing numbers of people. I see lots of home invasion reports in the St. Pete area with 3-4 people. Seen recent reports of "flash mobs" robbing stores. Just seems like the numbers are increasing while liberals are trying to decrease capacity. Just seems backwards to me.

    You and I with our 642's would be in a difficult situation! But yes, I see your point. Law abiding citizens should be allowed to prepare as they see fit. But that goes against the "government shall provide" mentality.

    I kinda think one shot would have sent them running, but they didnt have weapons so let them have everything not worth the hassle shooting them. What the heck were they thinking they would get to split among 6 guys.

    Remember the "Boarding House Rules"...no one gets a second helping until everyone has his/her first.

    It didn't say that any of the dirtbags were armed and I couldn't see any weapons.
    I think that the rats would scatter after the first helping...I'm just sayin'...

    That would have been a nightmare to walk in on...

    Violence is increasing in frequency in many areas of the country. Criminals are becoming more confident in their chances of escape from law enforcement. This situation is feeding on itself in a chain reaction. Police are under manned and under funded. Sometimes there is justice, sometimes there is just us. Stay armed my friends.

    I noticed the title of the actual video was "strongarm robbery."

    You didn't hear that NY passed a law stating no more than 2 BG's per crime? That is how they insure 7 rounds is plenty.

    I never said they were armed, or that it was a lethal force event...just pointing out that there were 6 of them...in the context of crime involving MORE people in events during a time when mag limits are going down.
