Sounds pretty good, poor robbers aren't safe anywhere now days.

Kinda a happy ending,no innocents injured,one BG will survive his wounds,and they will be putting as many as three maybe 4 people in prison that we can help support.I really miss the old prison chain gangs where you work to pay for your keep

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Question everything, Learn something, Answer nothing.
Those who have an answer for everything, have an answer for nothing.
And if it was a law abiding citizen, they would have been out of luck. Does PA have bar carry?
Reads like a clean shoot to me. I hope the officer was able to retrieve his shield and I.D. from the suspect(s).

Yep, sure is dangerous for folks to have guns in a bar. Who knows, such as that might help to apprehend some robbers. Sure wouldn't want that!
Thankfully, the Tennessee legislature over-rode Bredesen's veto (twice, thanks to the judge with no brains) and we can now carry in restaurants and bars.
You can go into a bar with car keys. I wonder why nobody cries foul over that one considering the resultant death toll is far higher.
