See, criminal had gun, store owner had none. Criminals get guns and Congress wants to take ours away.

Store clerks should be trained and armed. If you shoot and kill some of these jerks, maybe they'll think twice.

the problem is these crazies dont think that will happen, and think twice ? if they had the brain to think once, they wouldnt of tried it in the first place, we are not dealing with normal people !!

I with Jo-Ann's suggestion....We've got to do something to teach these turds. What are they going to do with 400 cell phones and ipads anyway? Put them on eBay? Should not the authority try and track these fools down from those resources..

they are gonna sell them cheap at flea markets and alike sales areas, then buy drugs with the money, run out of money, more robberies, its a never ending cycle, if somebody really wanted too, there must be a way to track them down, serial numbers would be my guess !!
