    Bad- six armed robberies in 7 days!

    Seems there is a local BG deciding to knock off fast food joints. All within a couple blocks of each other. One of the videos shows a local owner OC'ing a pistol in his back pocket. When asked what will happen to the robber, one of the waitresses responds, "Sumbody'll kill em." That pretty much sums up what I'm thinking. I'm actually surprised no one was carrying in any of the restaurants.

    "Henry Townsend who runs a sporting goods store has not been hit by the robbers but has close friends who have been.

    Henry was seen Thursday carrying a 9mm pistol in his back pocket. "Because I don't want my friends to get hurt and I don't want to get hurt."

    Townsend said his message to the robber would be to stop what he is doing."

    Six robberies in eight days? This dirtbag is on a collision course with a bullet.

    I'm thinking the same thing.

    If there were someone carrying while in the restaurant would you expect them to shoot the guy?

    Unfortunately, all those loose lipped individuals may cause this bg to become more nerveous and dangerous to unarmed victims.

    Depends on the situation. If one can sit tight and ride it out, ready to act if needed. Then fine. One robbery he herded the employees, and I believe some customers, into the kitchen area. That would not sit well with me. YMMV

    If that were to happen I would most likely at an opportune moment cash in his right to breath card.

    Thank God he did not read the part about when herding people into the back or the walk-in cooler, that its now time to shoot them.

    I looked at my wife and told her very seriously, if that ever happens in a store we are in it's game on. And considering the town it's in, and the drug of choice in this area, my bet is on meth.
