Police say there were four robbers in all, though only two of them went inside.

A witness says the shootout took place in the alley behind the store.

No one was injured.

Sources say the owner has a concealed-carry permit.

    WOOHOO! I think we need more store clerks packing pistols. I think that is a better way than putting them through the justice system and letting them go to do it all over again. if people are worried about law abiding citizens carrying guns, then just make a requirement for a yearly class to get a license. cause right now the criminals are carrying and so should law abiding citizens. We need our rights too.

    Hey Carol Brady…settle down. What did you have a “Charles Bronson-a-thon” last night and now you’re all “vag-alanti woman” . Listen, Christmas Carol, I’d prefer the 5 ft Hindu guy behind the counter at 7-11 not be packing a 357 when he thinks a kid’s robbing him by sneaking 2nds at the Slurpy machine…no more than I’d want you fishing through your coupon filled handbag looking for a gun. Carolina…you need to stop watching Netflix at 3am.

      Listen you cretin, would you rather have some drug-addled thug picking off citizens at random without any resistance? Maybe your self-loathing, guilt-ridden leftist soul needs that kind of punishment to soothe your guilt, but the rest of us prefer not being shot at like carnival ducks.

      • Sari about that

        Anita Clue…don’t you feel like a carnival duck every day of your life? I’m sure everyone that knows you spends most of their time trying to unfriend you…sorry Anitacleaver…you don’t pass the smell test. Jeremy, believe me…I drive a 6000 lb truck. I see you coming ..no worries…your safe…I’ll stay to the right and hit you head on.

      Wow, Sari, unpure thoughts for a numbed-out leftie. You should vent your spleen more often, but towards the people that deserve it. Eatmore granola, you sound like you need to pass somethng big!

    You think those people wouldn’t be so stupid. You never know who carries a gun anymore. People deserve what they get.. Shame he didn’tget one.

    It’s really very simple. If you choose to rob a store, expect to get shot at. I don’t care if you are white, black, citizen or immigrant, legal or not. None of it is relevant. Do the crime, expect the consequences.

    It’s nice to know the NRA won twice in this incident. One of their toys was used in a crime, and another was used against it. It makes as much sense as M.A.D. did between the US and USSR.

    It should be noted by anyone with a double digit IQ that the owner did not prevent the robbery with his gun. Even worse, he put everyone within range of a stray bullet in danger of losing their lives. All for less than what the gun probably cost him. What a jerk.
