    Default Gun store owner shoots and kills armed robber

    January 10, 2017


    GEORGIA - Surveillance video footage has been released of a robbery that took place at the Dixie Gun and Pawn on December 26, 2016 in Mapletown, GA. Store owner and victim Jimmy Groover said the two suspects entered his store and ordered him to the floor. Jimmy Groover used the handgun he has carrying on his side to fatally shoot one of the attackers. Groover told NBC 11 Alive that deadly force was his only option, saying:

    "I had no other choice. I had no other choice. I hate that it happened. I've been doing this 30 years. Nothing like this has ever happened. I never wanted this to happen but I want to go home at night, too."

    The store owner did what was necessary. Good shooting BTW.

    You would think that we would be running out of robbers at the rate they're dying ...... on the job.

    Guess I'm already disturbed, I saw nothing disturbing.

    Only a mental midget would even contemplate an armed robbery of a gunstore.

    These perpetrators committed suicide in a way. Did they not think that the owner had not thought of this scenario a thousand times or more? Did they not think that he trained for just the situation that unfolded?

    I'm not sure what the BG was thinking either. I don't thing he was thinking that he was going to get shot. He probably thought that the honest, hard working people of the world were going to cower at his gangsta feet while he played out his rapper fantasy. The gun store owner probably didn't listen to rap.

    The store owner had one second to react to his employees alert that they had a problem. The employee knew what was about to happen too. There were a multitude of things that could have happened but getting robbed without a fight wasn't one of them. The perp came prepared to do anything except shoot it out. IF he shot first it was a split second first and he wasn't thinking about aiming. His buddy didn't help him any either.

    The only thing I have a problem (and it's only a minor problem) with is the actual advertisement of these things. If we can watch it, the BGs can watch it too. If it happens enough then the BGs will start shooting as soon as they open the door. That's likely to increase innocent casualties and bring on calls for more gun control. Their logic will be that the presence of guns (in a gun store) brought on the violence. But, this is the same logic that is used in telling the press what our secret plans are in fighting ISIS.

    The Liberal mindset is that allowing ones self to be victimized is far better than any lives lost.

    My mindset is that BGs make choices. Evidently the guys in the video made some less-than-perfect choices. And, they weren't very good at being Bad Guys.

    A 45 cal bullet in the face will pretty much stop everything except the bleeding.

    He was dead before he hit the ground.
