    Attempted armed robbery of Canton gas station - OCing clerk returns fire, killing two

    From The Blaze:

    Customers and coworkers of an Ohio gas station clerk, shot twice while defending the store against armed robbers earlier this week, have nothing but good things to say about Lance.
    What the open-carry clerk did is fire back at the three suspects — two of whom died after running from the Marathon gas station in Canton. A third suspect remains at large following Monday night’s incident
    “Everybody that comes in here knows that all the employees here carry, you know and we don’t understand,” Lance’s coworker Pat told WJW. “These people couldn’t be from this neighborhood, cause it’s just something that you don’t see happening here. Everybody that comes in knows that Lance open carries.”

    That might have been a wiser approach for the robbers, who police said were wearing masks when they entered the store, attempted to rob it, and exchanged gunfire with the clerk. Surveillance video provided to WJW captures gunfire outside the store.
    Typical leftist response: Don't try defending yourself, just do as they tell you and hope they don't decide to beat/rape/murder you and/or your loved ones.

    Edit:
    I misread this part:
    “If you come into the store and you don’t have enough to cover, Lance would take it out of his pocket,” Pat told the station.

    That might have been a wiser approach for the robbers, who police said were wearing masks when they entered the store, attempted to rob it, and exchanged gunfire with the clerk. Surveillance video provided to WJW captures gunfire outside the store."
    As "That might have been a wiser approach TO the robbers..."

    This is what happens when I speed-read between experiments and/or classes. My bad. Editing prior post.

    Another reason why staff should be allowed to OC at work. Only thing i'm glad about is the gas tanks werent hit by bullets. That would have been just a slight problem :O

    That's not how I read that at all.

    I read it as "If they needed money that bad, they could have just asked - he probably would have happily helped them out if he thought they needed it."

    You are correct; I misread this part:

    Ahh. I don't watch TV. The very few times i'm by a TV when the news is on I watch just to laugh and shake my head that people are dumb enough to swallow the propaganda they spew hook, line and sinker.
