    This is how I'd love to see it go every time. These guys got what they deserved. But there was only one mistake... DOUBLE TAP!!!! ;)

    it was aborted after the guy with the gun received 1 to the chest and fell to the ground. This journalist poorly worded the situation. It sorta makes it seem like they were aborting the robbery, the guy turned with the gun to leave and the customer shot him.. just my opinion anyways.

    I had the impression the weapon was pointed in his direction.

    From the comments here no way to know if it's in fact the customer: http://www.wtvm.com/Global/story.asp?S=13501748#

    Had the bad guy not pointed his pistol at the armed customer, there's an excellent chance the customer would not have shot him. But, point a gun at someone who also has a gun and there's a pretty good chance you're gonna get shot.

    I extend my sympathy to the customer. I suspect this is weighing more heavily on his conscience than killing the clerk or customers would have on the bad guy's. Assuming, he even has a conscience...

    Unfortunately, the guy survived. After an expensive 100%-tax-payer-funded hospital stay, he'll be entitled to a 100%-tax-payer-funded public defender team to represent him at his 100%-tax-payer-funded trial, which will probably followed by a 100%-tax-payer-funded appeal of his 100%-tax-payer-funded stay in the state penitentiary.

    All because the customer didn't double-tap..... :(

    Nope, nope, nope. Sorry Howland Owl, they can charge him if it was carried openly. It's not a concealed weapons permit.
    Have you [s:eek:kqlen4w]guys[/s:eek:kqlen4w] people taught me right?
