    UNION COUNTY, N.C. -- Two convenience store clerks involved in the fatal shooting of a would-be robber will not be charged, the Union County District Attorney said Tuesday.
    Monroe police said 23-year-old Robert Young was shot and killed when he went into Sunny Food Mart, located on Walkup Avenue, on Thursday night and tried to rob it.
    District Attorney John Snyder released the following statement about the incident:
    “After a thorough investigation by the Monroe Police Department and a complete review of the evidence gathered, I will not press charges against the two men who bravely defended their lives against a cowardly man who wore a mask to rob the Sunny Food Mart. The honest hard working families that operate small businesses must be free from the fear of being robbed. Those that choose to rob should be filled with fear that they will suffer the same fate as the deceased. In Union County we have a no return policy on armed robbery.”
    Young had a handgun and demanded money from the two clerks working in the store, officers said.
    Sophea Pich and Sophin Pich were working at the family-owned store. One or both of the clerks fired shots at Young and Young also fired shots at the clerks, police said.
    Young was shot multiple times and was taken by ambulance to Carolinas Medical Center Main, where he later died. Neither of the clerks was injured.
    The clerks’ mother, Sophan Pich, owns the store and said they bought the guns for safety after a previous robbery.

    I posted this quote in the post I made about it. This may be the greatest quote I have ever heard from a DA!

    This quote is so freaking awesome that I almost want to have it tattooed on my strong hand. This is the entire point of CCW. Firearm, knife, baton, manriki gusari - whatever takes the BG down - they should tremble in fear that their next "victim" turns out to be their worst nightmare.

    Hey, I grew up in Union County (outside of Waxhaw)! Glad to hear that commons sense still prevails in the DAs office!

    Well they should but I'm afraid they just wouldn't get it. In particular, His Highness Mayor Daley would fear that the citizens who shot the BG would then turn their guns on the first responders. Why scumbag Daley isn't in federal prison is beyond me.

    Our only hope is to vote good men like DA Snyder into office nation wide.
