Customer kills gunman during armed robbery attempt at Jacksonville Dollar General

A 57-year-old father and grandfather stopped off on his way home from work Monday night to fill a grocery list his wife left for him that morning.

But after entering the Dollar General at 1921 Dunn Ave., he was thrust into an armed robbery that ended with him firing his weapon and one of the two robbers lying dead on the floor.

Two men entered the store about 9:20 p.m., both with handguns, said Lt. Rob Schoonover of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

“One of them had the clerk and one of them was at the front cash register,” Schoonover said.

The manager then alerted the customer to the situation.

“The customer, who had a concealed firearms permit and a firearm, fired at the suspect, striking him apparently two times, killing him,” Schoonover said.

The other robber, wearing a blue bandana and gloves, ran out the front and fled eastbound on Dunn Avenue in a small sport-utility vehicle.

What is the matter with this guy? He should be stripped of his citizenship. Doesn’t he know that today’s American should fall to the floor and start whimpering “Please don’t hurt me”?

For some time killing education, Bing/Google "Robbery Fail" and click "video". There are some remarkable surveilance footage of self defense shootings (Convenience stores, etc.). Many of the videos are educational in that they show a real situation unfolds. Most bad guys don't just drop dead or stop immediately when they are shot. Even a good shot can take seconds to minutes to have a "stopping" effect. Wounded perps can and often do return fire.

Keep shooting and moving until the threat has stopped.

This story identifies the perp who got away...wondering why the other doesn't?

“The other robber ended up getting away — he is described by police as a black male about 6 feet tall and wearing a blue bandana.”

So if 0 had a son, he'd look like the guy who got away.

"him firing his weapon and one of the two robbers lying dead on the floor. The other robber, ran out the front and fled.

Two men enter; one man (leaves) flees.

Police are trained to keep firing until the threat is on the ground and no longer acting like a threat.

This was pointed out to me in the story:

“He’s always been a marksman,” his wife said. “He shoots in competitions, but this is the first time he’s ever killed anyone and I don’t know how he’ll handle that.”

Lucky he remembered to bring his gun. That carry permit wouldn’t have been much good without it

How many innocent bystanders were hit by this ONE civilian taking on TWO robbers, as opposed to two NYC cops taking on one fashion designer?

Don’t laugh this ‘defense’ off.
I am 72 and that is my ‘pre plan’ plan if ever in a situation.

What better way for an ‘old fat guy’ blubbering in the corner to be able to get his weapon out and properly act?

You know it!

I already warned my wife if we ever found ourselves is a bad situation, don't be surprised if I whimper, cry, or blubber. And if I can work up a good piss, I'll use that, too!

I ‘visit’ a bank for deposits etc about 3 times a week and we got talking one day about banks and guards etc...

I casually told the young manager that he could feel just a little safer if I was around and don’t be surprised at anything I may do in a ‘bad situation’, he just had to casually keep their attention.
I made it clear I really wouldn’t act to save their money but if it got ‘personal’ to anyone, Stand By and be ready to duck....

Two to the chest, one to the head. Dead.
