    The perps were 15 & 16 yrs old--they are lucky the "citizens" didn't bring a gun to a knife fight.

    Sorry. It's Best Buy's problem. Like it was said before....if that maggot actually hurt a customer, you think Best Buy would care? Not in the least. I think they are worse than Wally mart. I would watch, get a good description and leave it at that. I don't care what retailer it is, I would NOT chase a shoplifter.

    Once again proving it's a myth that just because folks can carry a concealed firearm (to wit VA is a shall issue state), that they, in fact, will carry.

    Knife wounds can be very bad. Did I fire 13 shots or only 12?
