First of all what kind of

First of all what kind of fool keeps $6500 at a convenience store especially at night? Secondly what kind of convenience store owner doesn't have a firearm nearby? Get yourself a firearm and plenty of ammo and go Wyatt Earp on these thugs running around the CSRA robbing store, banks, pharmacies, and homes.

Well the facts speak for

Well the facts speak for themselves so no lovebugg obviously if the thugs got $6500 out of the safe then it isn't doing the job of protecting money that you think it is. Secondly what good is a firearm if it isn't within reach? Keep it in your waistband, underarm holster, or pocket. Go out to a shooting range and practice pulling out your gun and hitting the target in the torso. The owners have nobody to blame but themselves. The thugs are here to stay. It is way past time for law abiding citizens to be prepared for vigilante justice and start protecting their property and individual freedoms by whatever means necessary.
