We've kicked around similar scenarios like this here on the board: a robbery attempt at a T-mobile store stopped by a person carrying concealed. The twist: the defender worked there. The bigger twist: note the "no concealed weapons" sign on the door.

Not a bad outcome, I'd say.

    Better aim might be nice.

    Good for them, as it should be.



    I wonder how many years the employee gets? I bet he will still be in jail while the perps are out walking around stealing. After all he did shoot them while they were just supporting thier kids Bla Bla Bla puke! The worst part is the perps will probably sue t mobile and the employee and win. They will get more from the suit that the robbery...
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Notice where he shot them? Maybe the groin shot will at least slow down the rate at which new gangbangers get produced! The Mozambique triple-tap would be a better idea!

    Elk Creek is right - the store is guilty of false advertising, in that it advertised a defenseless victim zone, and the company failed to follow it's own advertising. Ergo, law suit time, and T-Mob has deep pockets. See, if the store had simply followed it's own policy these young thugs would have been able to steal enough money to turn their lives around, doncha know! :)

    Waiting for TMobile to force the manager to fire the employee with the carry permit.

    I like that the manager backed the employee's play. That took guts.
