This is a discussion on Burger King not a gun free zone within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Burger King diner defeats would-be robber by shooting him - Washington Times...

I hope the gun owner is NOT charged for shooting the perp. According to the news report the perp was leaving when citizen shot the perp. I found it interesting the news story didn't have the usual anti gun sentiment.
Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.
I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.
America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
I'm a little concerned about the fact he was leaving but it really doesn't say where he was in relation to the door.
Well, all that matters is where the dirtbag was in relationship to the bullet...sound like he was off by about a foot.
He'll live to rob again...already did three that day.

Dealing with a retreat is one of the most dangerous tactical issues a person will ever face. Personally, unless there is some strong indicator of a genuine retreat, I would take the chance. I would rather be in trouble than not be around for my girls.
I can never tell people enough how dangerous retreats are.
Of course, do not forget you can feign a retreat too. It takes some quick thinking, but it is a good way to give yourself a chance if you are in a bad spot.
Now I'm craving a Whopper...

I'm not giving up my Whoppers, no way.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
Never get between a diner and his Whopper.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

I definitely could see a ticket for littering if the shooter didn't police up his empty brass.
"Hey you! Have it your way!" BANG!

Any scumbag who is retreating while armed with a gun is fair game. He can turn kill you in a few seconds.
Too bad the perp is still wasting our oxygen. However, considering the situation, our hero with the pistol was just doing what we all say needs done, protecting his family and teaching this thug a lesson.
However, I love this sarcastic comment from the comment section of the article.
Maybe Junior should have gotten a REAL job,eh?Another trigger happy, pistol carrying, right-wing lunatic shooting an O***a DemocRAT. When will this craziness end? If a guy can't rob a Burger King without getting shot, he might as well get a real job. It is time to disarm hard working Americans. No robber should have to worry about being shot, while he is trying to make a dishonest living.

I'm more concerned about the health risks of the stuff they call food than any bandit.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
Lesson learned, we must defend our whoopers...
"Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.
