    Charlotte Jewerly Store Robbery video, Owner did not fire weapon?

    owner did not fire weapon during Jewerly store robbery after being beat down. Was the weapon empty, was a round not chambered, did he just chicken out on pulling the trigger, or was the safety on and he forgot. Anyway he and his family is very lucky. Worth watching this one all the way through...

    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Definitely a training issue,I will bet that he bought a gun and ammo and probably never fired a round out of it,or if he did fired less than a box of ammo and hasn't shot it since which could be several years

    Well the old lady finally did get out of her chair to get a better view of the poor guy taking a beating. That's something I guess.

    One of my friends is a Charlotte cop and stated that the robber took all the high end Rolex watches in the robbery...

    A kindergardener would have no trouble robbing that place.

    Geez, for a minute I thought she was a mannequin. I sincerely hope that's not what age does to me.

    A fine example of not having what it takes to save your life with the use of deadly force. One needs to know whether or not, one can effectively follow through, and if you can’t you end up taking the beating.

    Good video to show people just starting out.

    Many people aren't mentally prepared to kill someone. It was either training or lack of will.

    I went to a jewelry store to get some silver polish for my tuba and noticed that their back office door was closed and secured by one of those magnetic locks with a keypad for entry. Then again, this was one of the chain places that probably has established protocols.

    If this guy doesn't have the guts to shoot this thug to protect his store and HIMSELF (and his family), he needs to sell it and buy something he can use....like bandages. He needs to get rid of it because next time (and I am sure after this there WILL be a next time once the criminals see this) the thug may take it and use it on him and his family. I am surprised that the thug didn't do it this time.

    If one is willing to use lethal force for self defense and they haven't come to terms with the possibility of shooting and killing a BG, they shouldn't be carrying a weapon. I came to that realization years ago. I have seen too many people victimized and killed not to know it happens. I refuse to be a helpless victim. I want at least a fighting chance.

    I'm sure getting beaten senseless and robbed has made them realize that, but the majority of people with firearms probably don't. While understanding the many issues that come with owning and carrying a firearm is the responsible thing to do, it isn't the required thing to do.

    What the heck was he doing at 09 : 50 coming at the bad guy unarmed after he'd just been pepper sprayed and pummeled with brass knuckles! Seven seconds later he arms himself, points the pistol and fails. 09 : 52 the assailant should be down or carrying some lead out the door.
