    Why carry a gun to the Grocery store

    http://www.wtvr.com/news/wtvr-cheste...tory?track=rss

    Investigators say they received reports of a robbery in the parking lot of the Kroger at the corner of Hull St. Rd.and Hicks Rd. at 9:48 a.m. Saturday. They say a male suspect approached the victim, who was walking toward the entrance of the Kroger, from behind, grabbed the money and ran.

    I normally shop here for food and buy my gas. The store is not in view from the street and the BG took off thru the woods.

    My wife is starting to understand why I carry my gun now!

    grabbed the money and ran.
    Money in hand?
    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    Many of the Kroger stores in my area have banks inside.

    This incident shows us that, perhaps, it would be better to "conceal" the bank deposit bag in some manner until once inside the store / bank.

    Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Obviously open carry of money CAN make you a target!

    I guess we'll have a bill next year to outlaw OC of $ without a permit.

    Hey, Libtards, it's the "Bill of Rights," not the "Bill of Needs" . . . . .

    If the 2A does not apply to modern weapons, then the 1A does not apply to modern communications like the Internet! How do you like them apples!?
