    In some states, perhaps all, people who work in gun shops are REQUIRED to carry a gun.

    I love the last sentence in the article. I didn't know that there REALLY WAS a law against being stupid. The moron law is enacted finally

    I gotta tip my hat to the Gun Store employee who displayed great restraint. I'd have shot the POS. Like he will learn his lesson. Guarantee you he gets out of prison and repeats. Call that stereotyping if you may but the truth is the truth.

    Is picking on the stupid considered profiling?

    This guy is a complete waste of oxygen, and a good candidate for retroactive abortion.

    Putting one in the kneecap to hold him might have been a good idea for the future. A gimpy recidivist is easier to apprehend.

    It seems to me, that he wanted to go to jail!!! Maybe he owed to much to his bookie or drug dealer, and needed to get off the streets fast. Then again maybe his shoe size is larger than his IQ. break em all. Jeff

    There actually are individuals who have a real handicap when it comes to calculating the risk of future consequences for their present "grab the prize" action. Then, you have men with the extra Y chromosome who, if burglars, seem to do things like crawl through the window while the homeowner is inside watching TV. Fascinating business. Obviously, those types should not go into crime as a career..

    I recall reading in The American Rifleman (NRA's magazine) about an idiot with a double barrel shotgun who tried to rob a gun shop. To show he meant business he fired one round into the floor and the other into the ceiling.
