    Crap, I have OC'ed numbers of times at numerous Subway Rest. and never really thought I could be mistook as a "would be" robber by an armed itchy trigger fingered employee. Funny though, all my interactions regarding OC happen at Subway Rest. It doesn't state this inthe article, but I suppose these guys didn't walk in hosltered and they were probably dressing the part of a robber.

    Interesting. Thanks for the heads up as I don't get much Charlotte news east of Raleigh.

    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

    I heard on an evening news story that they caught the female getaway driver. A witness says he saw the clerk chasing them out of the store still shooting <-- big no-no legally.

    More coverage:

    Most reports do say he was seen chasing the BGs down the street, shooting at them. BIG no-no.

    But I gotta admit, I'd like to shake this Subway employee's hand, and buy him dinner...
