Georgia Gun Shop Owner shoots would be robber.

Post by flopstock »

Who, in their right mind, would walk into a gun store in Georgia and expect the owner to just lay down and let you rob him?:-2

This bad guy drops two guns- that I can see- on his way down.

I'm seriously considering getting gun trained. The kid that works for me is offering to let me practice out on their farm. :thinking:

A person should never own a gun unless they are well-trained in how to use it.

We take road tests & should have to take lessons to get a gun license. Including cleaning, loading, everything, & marksmanship. IMO

What impressed me was the owner dropped down and shot out the glass of his display case to shoot the perp.

One thing besides hands on gun training is to know the laws in your local area concerning the legal use of firearms. Realize that knowing the law is a good beginning, but what to expect if you ever use a gun to protect yourself, even if you do not actually fire the weapon.

Good Luck.

One should never print newspapers unless they know how to spel or speak without proper diction.

You knew this would be my response. Driving a car is not a right, owning a gun is.

One would think one would care for something they spent, how much money for?

That kind of thing should start in school. It could be done as an optional class. I bet ya a lot of students would sign up.

Now, only if I could get my wife to clean her gun.

This kid that works for me has been collecting for years. He's one of those that does target practice with his AR-15 or whatever it is called. I guess I have to do something different for a concealed carry license than I do to just own one at my house, but he's pretty serious about me not even getting one for home unless he teaches me how to use one first... and when I say kid - I mean the kid in his 30s who works for me :)
