Too Many Guns

a crime spree in February in Washington state
was not thought through, as the would-be robber
chose H&J Leather & Firearms as his target
for money. Beyond choosing a gun shop as his
target, he chose to strike during opening hours,
when the shop was full of firearms customers
and owners. Lastly, the robber had to step past
a marked police car parked at the front door.
Once the robber saw the officer, the announced
the hold-up and fired a few shots.

Let us remind you again that this hold-up was
taking place in a gun shop, where he walked in
and fired shots.

So after the would-be robber fired his shots,
the officer and a clerk fired back, as did
several customers with guns.

The robber was killed, but no one else was hurt.
