Here is an update on those involved:
This is a discussion on Good: Good guy with a gun drops 2 robbers at 7-11 within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Originally Posted by Novarider "He said to her, "Nobody's gonna point a gun at me and get away with it.""

In other news, a man was seen purchasing groceries (or insert any other lawful activity). Police have not said whether he will be charged.
The original story left me with the impression that the robbers did not fire their guns. So did the customer shoot the clerk?

Glad to see a bad guy change his ways - permanently. Thanks, good guy! To the wounded bg survivor - did you learn anything??
I wouldn't want this to happen anywhere, but it is ironic that it happened in Virginia Beach, where there was that mass shooting that has our legislature all in a turmoil about gun control. I lived there for six years in the Navy. Hardly anything used to happen back then, but that was decades ago.
Personally, I'm now studiously avoiding convenience stores at night and Walmarts any time. If you are in a convenience store at 2 AM, you are either working nights, for which you have my sympathy, or you just want to get in a gunfight.

Especially valuable in cases where local politics tend toward the victimhood card being played.
But certainly, no one being thus investigated for an apparent self-defense shooting should be detained as that investigation is underway.

Having said all that the few times I've gone into stop and rob I've had bad luck. I stopped for gas with my wife once and she asked me to go in and get her a soda. While I was waiting to check out some random homeless guy was wandering around the store flipping his knife open and closed
There was the tweaker who I'm certain was trying to snatch my gun in a convenience store and I was standing in line at a 7-11 waiting for a gas receipt one afternoon when some Methhead walked through the door and immediately began screaming at me out of all the people in the store
I think the guy trying to take my gun was the last time I went into a convenience store, it was certainly the straw that broke the camel's back. Coincidentally I haven't had any issues since I stopped going into the stores.
pskys2, I believe your statement, "I'm coming to the sense that there is a concerted effort by them to undermine the rule of law to jack up the crime rate and then blame it on the wave of CCW's on the streets?" I have been saying this for years.
