Glad no one was hurt. However,they did create the fish in a barrel, victim rich environment themselves.
Yup! The sad things is, instead of removing the signs, they'll probably post even more in the belief that the robbers didn't see them.

I'm sure store management is at a loss to understand why people ignored those signs. Bigger signs should solve the problem. They also need bigger signs that say you are being video taped.

When the customers walked in, the second gunman took their phones, wallets and then forced them to the back of the store. The duo was able to do this to four different customers.
So, which of us would've tried to out draw the second thug? Hmm...I know, moot point since they had signs up and we don't patronize those places.

Story is made up. No way this could have happened with those signs in place!

I'd rather have people stealing their $$ v. gov't lotto garbage.


Is that guy thinking he's 15 yrs old with the cap turned backwards?

I'm sure they'll catch them ... thieves are not the brightest bulbs.

Oh wait, their syrian refugees .. they just did not know it was wrong ..... gov't will give them a pass

What, how dare they not heed the words on the sign. Just who do these criminals think they are.
It would not have happened tom me, because if I see a 30.06 and 30.07 I walk away. A convenience store with both posted is just asking for it.
