It probably isn't very smart to rob a gun store, woman employee with a gun stops two armed robbers



From Channel 5 TV News in Springdale, Arkansas:
Marcus Gould, 25, and Leon Roberson, 20, face charges of Attempted Capital Murder and Aggravated Robbery, according to police. Roberson was booked into the Washington County Detention Center at 1:55 a.m. and is set to appear in court for an 8.1 Hearing on Monday (Dec. 7th), according to the detention center’s website. 
Police said the incident happened around 9 a.m. Saturday at the C & S Gun and Pawn Shop at 1208 South Thompson in Springdale. 
Employees reported two men walked into the store, one wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and the other wearing an orange hooded sweatshirt, police said. 
“They split up, they both pulled out hand guns that looked like black semi-automatic pistols and began to rob the store,” according to Lt. Derek Hudson with the Springdale Police Department. “One of the employees also pulled out a weapon and there were shots exchanged.” . . . 
Sergeant Daniel Grubbs with the Fort Smith Police Department, said Gould arrived at Sparks Hospital with a gun shot wound to the forearm. . . .

Dr. Lott,

I worked in a gun store in Florida in 1989 (where all the sales clerks wore sidearms) and an angry customer told me he was going to get his baseball bat from his car and come in and "clean my clock". I asked him to reconsider as I chambered a round in one of our loaded riot shotguns behind the counter. I'm not making this up! He did reconsider and left the store quietly.
