    In this troubling economy and drug addicted people getting more desperate I can’t understand why any store owner, manager etc. isn’t arming themselves. Look at that poor store clerk in Jamaica Plain I think it was, who was shot by a career criminal even after giving him the $$. People…get a lawful permit to carry and start fighting back. It may be the difference between you getting home that night to see your family or getting a ride in the coroners van. I know someone who has a store that has to have a decent amount of cash around to pay out for gold. He has his equalizer, a Smith & Wesson 45 tucked in his belt at all times. Hopes he never has to pull it from that belt area but he realizes it might mean his survival!
