    GOOD: BG attempts robbery, CCP holder shoots and kills BG, BG wife arrested.

    About an hour away from where I live and at a location in which I have stopped on many occasions for gas and munchies, a BG was shot by a Good guy carrying his CCW when the BG came in with a shotgun. The BG wife was in the car waiting as an accomplice and was arrested. BG died in process.

    Glad nobody was hurt. (Except the BG, of course)

    Hopefully as criminals realize there are more and more of us that carry they will start to think twice about even trying this sort of crap. Probably not though....

    Unfortunately for BG's wife, as hard as it is to lose her spouse, she may be tried for murder, as her felony resulted in a death.

    CC against shotgun, just shows the effectiveness of CC in tight situations.

    Good job by the CCWr.
    Going up against a gauge will definitely get your blood pumping if it isn't already.

    I'm sure, but why do I get the feeling this was not a "face to face" encounter? Just a hunch though. Would love to know for sure, but probably never will. Customers are not generally behind the counter where the money is. Not that I care one bit where he was shot.

    From the article....

    "While in the process of stealing several hundred dollars, Roberts was shot by a customer in the store who was carrying a firearm. "
    I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

    That's the feeling I get. My speakers took a dump, but from what I could gather the robber had already gotten the money and was still holding the shotgun on the clerk when he was shot.

    I think if the store's security video captured the BG's brains being splattered during the commission of an armed felony, that would make a great PSA (public service announcement). Just a little more to the point than the "this is your brain, this is your brain on drugs" piece that ran a few years back. Of course my sense of justice is a bit closer to the Code of Hammurabi than what is politically correct these days!

    That may be why they did not release the tapes to the press.

    This is a scenario that has been discussed many times in as many threads.
    It is one of those 'had to be there' scenarios to truly understand the 'what, how, and why'.
    The sheriff seemed to understand quite well.

    As Uncle Ted says, "No repeat offenders, just dead offenders."

    Word is they will still take the CCW holder to grand jury. I never expected less. Dont see a sensible jury returning a true bill.

    Taking on a shotty!! Good job CCW.
