I live less than 10 miles from the location and I want to say a great big Thank You to the Store Owner.

Too bad he was only able to tag one. In Texas, we don't have that problem 'cause there's a law that says you can't carry a gun in a pawn shop - sigh . . . . .

Are you sure you cannot carry in a pawn shop? I go into three shops on a pretty regular basis. Two shops know I carry and have never said a word to me. But then again they know me.

I do not find anything in the Texas regs about pawn shops, of course I could be wrong.

As they say here in S Louisiana, "Damn the Bad Luck".

Someone should submit this one to Darwin's List. At least this clown won't be polluting the gene pool any longer!

I guess they believed their own hype "We're tough, everybody afraid of us."

Dixie GUN and Pawn...GUNS are inside and maybe people who know how to use
them.
Good the owner did not obey the command.

The herd is thinned.

The gun store owner used to shoot USPSA in the late 80s and I heard that he was a very competent shooter.

Good outcome; a perfect outcome would have been both suspects' bodies on the floor deceased.

The 'suspects' elevators obviously don't go all the way to the top.

I disagree, if it ended just as it should have they would both be laying on the floor. Now we have to go through the expense of trying one of them!
