    Two robbers jumped the counter and demanded money, but instead of grabbing the cash the owner grabbed his gun.

    He shot and killed one robber.

    The other fled.

    In July of 2005, three men held up the same store and surveillance cameras captured one of the suspects firing shots.

    Employees managed to dodge the bullets. No one was hurt, but the robbers got away.

    Good! And decent reporting on it too! At least it didn't have the usual anti-spin that one sees all too often.

    If only MORE people would arm themselves and likewise be ready!
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    At least they didn't call the dead BG a 'victim'...it's the victim who shot the dirtbag....

    With any luck, the smarter criminals will start to realize there are fewer victims and more people willing to defend themselves and their way of life. Kudos to the shop owner for being prepared, I hope I'm never in his shoes.

    Give it time, I'm sure Nancy Polise will weigh in on this and proclaim the storeowner was part of a hate group.

    Good deal, the owner being prepared. I'm glad it ended well.

    If I could just learn how to dodge the BG's bullets, like the guys in the news story, I could sell my guns and quit worrying about where I'll be able to buy some ammo. Just call me Neo (The Matrix, 1999 Warner Bros.).

    Indeed, another criminal has done the right thing.
