The suspect reportedly tried to rob a man in the parking lot outside the store.

The man with the CHL was shot in the arm and the hand by the robber, but the robber was shot multiple times in the chest.

The robber was dead at the scene.

Love how those Texans make sure there’s no residual cost when they deal with criminals, any word if it was one of Obama’s sons?

Shot multiple times in the chest?

I for one would like a little more information on how tight the shot group is.

Reportedly, all shots were inside the Obama campaign logo on his T-Shirt.

It was so refreshing to read an article like this without the Northeastern limp-weenie “no word from the District Attorney if charges will be filed against the shooter” statement.

My biggest regret in life may be that I was not born in Texas*. I am certain that they are my kind of people.

*Except Austin.

" The man with the CHL was shot in the arm and the hand by the robber, but the robber was shot multiple times in the chest."

This is known as "gun control" in Texas.

Mine also... But I have managed to live here for 74 years minus four years in the Navy...

I also found one of those Texas beauties and I believe my grand kids are seventh generation Texans as a result...

And mine as well; I have traced one of my family lines to living here prior to statehood. I'm also a Central Texas native.

On another note, my family's office is 11 miles out in the country and I actually had a man from New York come in to pick up an application for a friend today. He said he is retired and able to move without having a job lined up ahead, so after deciding to flee his state he chose Texas. After he gets established, he has more family members who want to join him here. He was a right-minded fellow, so I welcomed him to Texas :)

Ah. A successful robbery, in short. Ten minutes' work with a hose, and the case is closed.

Agreed!
I am always disappointed when the scumbag survives a shooting. It's like, kiss a million taxpayer dollars away.
Dead scumbags are better every time.

What would happen to the individual who killed him didn’t have a CPL?

Fear not, in the future he will continue to faithfully vote DemoRat in several states, and several precincts.

Also information on the caliber and load would be of interest.

From the article: Desmond Paige, 20, tried to rob a man using Craigslist.... Paige was recently released from prison after serving time for a violent crime and was on parole.

But... no picture...

In Texas - nothing - if the good guy retrieved his handgun from the car instead of wearing it. In Texas, your car is your "castle" and a handgun can be carried in the car without any kind of license.

Well, you can fix that! I’m an American by birth, but a Texan by the grace of God. You can be, too. Texas is a big place; you don’t have to live anywhere near Austin.

Probably a Grand Jury hearing after which the victim would be cleared of any and all charges.

Since multiple courts have found that a State has no legal liability for failing to protect you, it can conversely have no authority to prevent you from protecting yourself....'license' or not.

Indeed a robber needs to think about who will be the last person I will see before going into action.
