    They really should put up those "No Robberies" signs.

    Are you sure this story is accurate? How could the robber have used a handgun when they are not allowed?

    Maybe they would have better luck if they put up a "no robbers" sign.

    Well what can i say.......We asked them to take down those stupid signs in the first place so that we could entirely avoid having this discussion.......

    I guess BB&T is being very generous with their stakes....

    Just imagine had there been one of our fellow brothers in that bank armed and concealed....

    Or even armed and OCing? It could very well have turned out like the Suntrust episode I read recently about where one of our "Roomies" was standing in a teller's line shortly after the bank opened and a BG walked in,did the Geico :what:and left in a hurry.

    No shots fired, no paperwork, no good guy's guns confiscated...

    They all know it but they just won't admit it.

    Yes , having a firearm on your strong side is a very huge "Visual Deterrent".It shows authority regardless ofwho you are unless you "are faster than a speeding bullet" you are just a mere mortal like everyone else.

    No moron in their right state of mind would want to challenge anyone with a firearm in the old western shootout.

    I will let you in on a little secret.

    BB&T Arlington Branch has no sign whatsoever.

    Apparently everything but Beretta 92/96 series pistols are allowed in there. The robbers must have used something other than a Beretta since the no Berettas sign was up.
