    How often does something have to happen before it isn't even news anymore?
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Wow, the CBS replies have a little racial hatred going on. Due to the situation at hand, or the recent Trayvon stuff? Seems worse than what I usually see.

    Anyways... this seems like a tough situation to deal with. I don't know how I would react if I was in the store and this was to happen. I'd probably get into a corner, hope they kept going for twinkies, but draw if I was confronted in any way.

    Those kids don't care. They see the 'thug life' as a much better option than working and earning their keep. Why work when you can take.... with near impunity.... their juveniles and they know it.

    FB and twitter, cell texting...... they can get much better orginized now too.

    I think 7-11 should change thier name to "50 round drum" and have a Tommygun behind every counter!

    WOW! The article comments ... quite entertaining
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!

    Who was it again that said that people talking about flash mobs on this forum were just fear mongers??

    Riot control sized OC spray dispensers---the "Crowd Pleaser" Every Convience Store should have a couple

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

    These flash mobs will stop when someone perceives them to be a threat and shoots one or more of the mobsters.

    Even better, a system like we had for fire control in chemistry labs back in high school. Pull the lever, and the whole room is dusted! PooF! I'd be willing to take the hit if I was the cashier.

    Dang. You beat me to it.

    Although, the only places that would need that probably already have glass in front of the counter, so it wouldn't be too bad for the clerk.

    Are there rules against having a magnetic lock on the doors that can be triggered from behind the counter if a crime is being committed?

    No, but if you are unarmed and outnumbered, I'm not sure that locking the criminals in with you would be your smartest move.
